Jack's 2 months old today

And driving us bonkers.

We're all ill. What ever cold bug Jack picked up while we were away this weekend has been passed on to us all. The whole house is filled with snot. Our throats are sore, I'm loosing my hearing, and poor little Jack can't settle at all. His cries are not helping our headaches either.

Di from worked popped in today to keep me up to date with the gossip. It's all go with the call centre at the moment with people being brought in from other departments to make calls. Once they've managed to get 2 appointments in a day they can go back to their original post. I really hope I'm not expected to do that when I go back because I HATE call centre work! And I'm not very good at it either...

Today I had to let my web sites for Juvy (the lady who did my wedding dress) go. I've hardly worked on them at all since I got that promotion at work, and then with having Jack to look after I have done pretty much nothing. That's no good for Juvy since she's expanding so I've had to say good bye to that bit of business. Mind you, since I've done no work I've not been invoicing her either so it's not like I'm suddenly going to miss the income. I just feel sorry for letting her down and because I did really enjoy the work.

I think I'll head off for a sleep now. Yorkie's having his shift of looking after poorly Jack and there's a bottle in the fridge for them. It's one thing to be ill, but something else for all three of us to be sick at once!

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…
