Catch up (again)

Jack's been poorly again this week. He's had a horrible snotty cold which has been keeping him from sleeping well because his nose kept on blocking up and he couldn't breathe. It's been hard, but he's coming through it now. I'm so glad I kept that little bottle of drops for his nose from his first cold because we'd have been stuffed without it.

But we've been keeping busy. Jack's slept through most of it, but busy is busy. On Monday my boss came over and took us out to lunch as Hest Bank. It was lovely weather and we sat out in the sun to have our fish n chips - which was the one time Jack perked up. He's getting very interested in food! Me and the Boss-man talked work and I have been given the OK for the days I want to work, and for time off in Oct to see Dad & Fay (just waiting for Yorkie to get the same from his boss) so that was all good - and it meant that Jack got to have a ride in the boss's nice blue jag!

On Tue the health visitor came over to see how we're doing and check on Jack's cold - the conclusion was that we're doing just fine. And then Kathy popped in with baby Katie. Mum came over on Wednesday and took me and Yorkie out for lunch. Thurs' massage class wasn't much good. Poor Jack cried and just wanted loving, but at least I got to have a cup of tea this time! Debs came over in the afternoon and Jack was introduced to the Ann Summers store on town while she picked out some new undies to impress her new feller with.

Friday was a lovely day, although Jack slept through most of it. It started off duff with us turning up to a baby session which had changed days and I hadn't noticed (it's not one I go to often and it changes each month apparently) so wasn't on, but we met up with Jen and her lad Adam (who was dressed in his Spider-man suit - I wish I had some photos!) and went to the park for a while and had a pic-nic and then back to mine for a DVD.

Today was supposed to be Fairfield Funday. We were going and meeting up with Jen & kids, Jill & Gary & Kids and Chrissy & Kids. But this morning it was raining sheet water! So we wound up cancelling, although Jill did invite us round for the afternoon (Jen & Chrissy did stuff too, we didn't just ditch them!)

Jack seems to be felling better now too. He's gone to bed without needing his drops and has been very playful all evening. Even having a damn good go at getting to his daddy! This kid REALLY wants to be walking!

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…
