Thunder Storms

It seems I have passed on something less than brilliant to our poor son - a sensitivity to thunder storms.

This morning he woke up at 5 for a feed and change as normal, but wouldn't settle. He was whinging and fidgety and stressed, and so was I, which made for a poor combination at that time of the morning. We were like this till 6.30, but just around 6.15ish the sky blackened and there was thunder. Lots of long, low, deep rumbles of thunder that got closer and closer and then suddenly stopped. My headache cleared pretty much right away - as I'm used to happening - and Jack suddenly settles and went to sleep until gone 9.

This evening my headache came back just as he started to gripe again. Again he was fed and clean, but no amount of cuddles and love or anything else we tried would calm him. We even tried him with the gripe water. Then there was more thunder, and as it cleared he fell asleep.

If i could have chosen things to pass on to Jack, that would not have been on the list. For years Yorkie has said I'm like a barometer, and now there's two in the family.

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'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…

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
