MY throat infection...

Jack is on the mend! Hooray! He's eating well, and even going back to the breast, so long as he's either asleep or there is NOTHING more interesting to distract him

However... now I have it. And it's no wonder the poor little guy was so upset. It's really nasty. My throat is swollen and sore, cold drinks are murder. I have sores on my gums, tongue and cheeks. Food tastes of nothing but that doesn't matter because I don't want any.

I've been to the docs, feeling stupid for asking for help for a sore throat, but if we're going to be visiting my sister-in-law and her kiddies I want to make sure I'm not still carrying this. I don't think Rachel would thank me for giving it to little Alex! Chris & Nick wouldn't be much fun with it either.

But back to Jack (who is my favourite topic of conversation). He's back in his own room again now. Last night he would probably have slept through the whole night had I not woken up at 4.30 for a pee, seen the time and freaked out thinking 'OMG HE'S DEAD!' and checked on him. He was sleeping soundly, but I took the opportunity to give him a dream feed for 25 mins. He slept until gone 7.30!!! And again would have slept on if this time Yorkie hadn't been the one to freak out and check on him! I went to give him another feed but he was too interested in us having a chat to stay on so I brought him down stairs. He had another go at feeding for a while and then has his rusk. His cheeks and nose are still a little red and spotty and his bum hasn't fully healed yet - but looks loads better for his titanium butt cream.

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…
