'Informal Evening' at the RLI Womens Unit

We were late. Not by much, and certainly not the last, but still we turned up late (but only because I was picking my car up from the garage, the MOT done in under 24 hours and costing a grand total of £61.42! Woo!). As we tottered in and found some seats we were handed two jelly babies. No... not sweets. Scale model babies as 15 week and 20 weeks pregnant, in a rather disturbing cold, mucky, jelly like substance...

I have to say I was quite freaked out by how big the 20 week baby was as that is what we are at the moment! It's massive! And about 1lb in weight. I was quite glad to hand it back!

There were 4 other couples there, all due about the same time as us. One couple just before us and the others just after, and I was by far the biggest (although, the other ladies would prob be much slimmer then me if none of us were pregnant, so I'm not worried).

We were chatted to about parenting classes and exercises classes, then diet and nutrition, and then about general exercises and physio - which a lot of concentration on the good old pelvic floor exercises! It was a lot of fun, and the last lady who was talking to us had us all in fits of laughter!

It lasted for about an hour and a half, and even Yorkie had to admit it was more fun than he expected.

Next one is the scan on Friday!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
