Shopping

I have spent my first money on Baby!

I spent Wednesday afternoon with Jill and while I was there she had her new crib delivered from Boots online, one she's bought on sale down from £60 to £45. It's a nice crib too, wooden, swinging (or not if you want) and complete with mattress. We built the main part of it together (with some help from little Morgan, ahh) and it went together nice and easy - apart from one washer and bolt that I managed to get jammed but Gary fixed with ease when he came home.

Basically I was so impressed by this crib that I decided that I wanted one too, and as it was on sale I might as well get it now before they run out or go back up in price. And I was too late! Boots had sold out! I was gutted!

But since I was browsing the web for baby stuff I thought I may as well carry on and had a look at the kiddicare.com web site that Rachel had mentioned getting a nursing chair from, and you'll never guess what! Ok, you probably will.... The same crib was there, and for even less! Under £40! So I ordered one! And - since I was ordering - put in the order for the nursing chair too. Yorkie was going to order that for me when he got paid but it made sense to get them together now so that they wont arrive while we're away for Christmas and also to get the free delivery, and he's going to out that money in the saving account instead for other baby stuff later.

It'll be a couple of days at least before they arrive, but I can't wait! I'm really looking forward to actually having a bit of baby stuff in the house, I know it's going to mean we have to shift other stuff around, but that's no bad thing. At the moment we're just delaying and delaying sorting out the house, so this will hopefully give us a kick up the bum to start.

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…

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…
