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.

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…
