Quiet Moments

When ever I have a few moments to myself and let my mind wonder I start to think about doing something creative again. I've done next to nothing for ages. Okay, so I did some cross stitch while I was pregnant, and I did those jungle animal painting for Jack's room, but that's been it. And they weren't terribly creative anyway.

I keep thinking that maybe I should start painting properly again, or maybe I should have another go at writing. But I am a little stuck for inspiration. Jack takes up pretty much my whole world at the moment and any painting I tried to do would only reflect how soppy I feel over him which is not my style so I'm not keen on that. Plus, baby and paint might not be a good mix right now. That'll be more fun when he's big enough to join in and paint too.

So that leaves writing. More than just my blog - which is rambling not writing - something enjoyable like I used to do years ago. But again, what inspiration do I have right now. Motherhood... There are millions of tat chick books about that. It would be nothing original, nothing sparkling. But it might just scratch this creative itch I've got.

And it's not like I'm trying to get anything published or anything.

Hummm...

I might just set up a pen-name account somewhere and see how I get on! Assuming I ever get time to write more than a few sentences at a time!

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…
