Visiting!

It was Tony's 60th at the weekend so Kate had a 'do' for him on the Sat. It's a long journey from home to Kate 'n' Dave's, and since me and Jack hadn't seen my Mum all week we broke the drive up by spending Fri night at her house.

It was past Jack's bed time by the time we'd arrived in Burnley and I was fully expecting him to start yelling when we sat down for tea, but we put his car seat on one of the dinning chairs so he could see us all while we were eating and he was fine. He chuckled and chatted all the way through.

After another three course breakfast - and some Jack 'n' Nanna time - we set off for Jenny's, dropped off Muppet (Fizgig stayed with my mum), and Jack's things, before going over to see the Birthday Boy.

It was nice to see Tony, we'd not seen him since Christmas and he hadn't met Jack before. Kate and Dave put on a really good do. As well as us there was Rachel, Garry & the kids, Jenny, Bob n Rachel, Clare (who has her first baby due on my birthday!) and Joy who'd had her birthday a few days earlier.

Both babies were passed round everyone, with Alex being on his best behaviour, and Jack projectile vomiting on pretty much anyone and everyone who touched him. Bob was more than just a little wary of him by the end of the day! We had a butty buffet for lunch followed by birthday cakes for both celebrants, and jelly with ice cream! Yummy! And a Chinese banquet for tea!

Then we headed back to Jenny's before Jack got too grumpy for being up past his bed time. We're pushing our luck with 2 late nights!

On Sunday we were invited round to Rachel's for lunch before heading off back to Lancashire. While we were there David n Dee popped in to say hello and see the kids.

Jack was trying to grab David's beard like he does his dad's, and got frustrated when he couldn't get a proper grip! Yorkie was mobbed by the two older boys and got some good practice in for when Jack gets bigger - by being a climbing frame and swing all in one for Nicky!

Garry got a cracking video of Jenny playing with Jack and him laughing harder and longer than we've ever known him to! I'm hoping either he or Rachel gets it online for us so we can keep a copy. It's brilliant!

Then it was back home via Mum's for a spot of tea and to pick up Fizzy. Jack was late to bed again and starting to get grumpy, but we had a wonderful time.

Good job we're going back again in a few weeks!

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…
