Visiting!

One good thing about working in Leeds for a day is having a good excuse to call in at my Mums on the way home. Friday I was working in Leeds till 8pm and I really didn't want to drive all the way back to Lancaster which would mean not getting in until at least 10pm, so I stayed at Mums which meant I could be warm and cozy by 9!

YAY!

We had a good long natter about everything and nothing on Fri night - infact we were till up at 1am - and then went on a bit of a shopping jaunt on Sat morning which driffted into mid afternoon chatting before I dragged myself away. Me and Yorkie had been invited to a friends birthday lunch and while I was way to late for the food, I might just catch them up in the pub after. I didn't, as my beloved had kept his phone smothered in his jacket pocket and didn't even know I'd rung to find out what pub they were in for another 2 hours (grr) by which time I was cozied up at home... but never mind.

Sunday I had a girly day out with Jen over at Conder Green, we had a massive lunch at the Stork and I even treated myself to a whole half pint of Guinness! The Yorkishire House are having a Punk Weekend and Stefs heavily involved in sorting it out. The boys have been off looked after by various grandparents for the weekend. Adam was going to be brought into the Yorky by Stefs dad to have a little watch during the afternoon break which was going to be pretty quiet so after we'd gourged ourselves we popped along to see how it was all going. Steff was on the stage going through a few tracks with Guilty Pleasures, and Adam wanted on stage too! He had a bang of the drums, and a bit of a dance, and generally joined in! He was no impressed when it came time for grandad to take him back home again! Hee hee! I forsee Daddy-Stef booking gigs for his sons band in years ti come!

We left just after as the other set of grandparents were bringing Conner back home after a weekend with them. He's a massive kiddie! Not fat or anything like that, just big for his age (Mind you, so is Adam, at only 2 he looks more like a 3 or 4 year old). He's 6 weeks and already dowing 7 oz of milk, and wouldn't have said no to more either I bet! He could easily pass for 3 months. He seems like such a good baby too (the kind I hope ours will be), he cries if he wants food, if he wants a hug, and if he's got a wet or dirty bum. Fair enough! Other than that he's as good as gold, chatting away to himself and getting plenty of sleep. I got a lovely long cuddle with him and was sad to hand him back when it was time to go home.

Can't wait till we get to hold our own!

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…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Bath night with these two horrors!
