Wedding Anniversary!

Wow! A whole year! Our first Wedding Anniversary!

I could go on about what a year it has been etc, but you all know it all anyway if you've been reading this, hee hee. Needless to say I'm thrilled to bits!

We've had a fun day of it too. Yorkie brought me breakfast in bed this morning just as Jack was finishing his breakfast (which is always in bed. Alright for some!) along with a card, a cute teddy (from Jack) and my half eternity ring that I have been hinting heavily for since before baba came into the world. Well, actually we went into town yesterday and bought it, but it was given to me in it's box properly this morning! I also got a DS card with recipes n stuff I'd been drooling over as an early prez a couple of days ago.

My gifts for Yorkie were not quite so romantic - I didn't think romance and mush would be as thrilling for him. I (along with Jack) bought him all 5 of Bottom Live on DVD. He's been trying to watch them on the Dave channel for weeks but keeps falling asleep (combination of them being on late and Jack getting us up early). And a card of course.

The three of us went out to Conder Green and The Stalk for lunch (Jack's fave pub by now I think) and then took a walk into Glasson and the Smoke House. Glasson Fate was on today so the weather was awful! In fact, just as we started to walk back to Conder Green it started to rain, then it started to thunder and lightning too! Lucky Jack has his prams rain over. Me and Yorkie had our hoodies. Yorkie had no shirt on under his! (Don't ask why, I don't know). It's a long walk in the pelting rain and humidity of a summer storm, with a baby who is miffed that he can't see out because of the condensation on his rain cover and threatens to cry by shouting and yelling (bless) until one of us clears it a bit.

Still, you have to laugh, don't you.

Once home and dry (in my case into my PJs and staying that way) we watched some Bottom Live, and then the season finalle of Dr Who (coz we missed it yesterday giving Jack his bath) and spent the rest of the evening chilling out.

Nice!

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…
