False Alarm

I'll be honest and say I am a bit gutted about this.

Dispite having no cycle in Nov, Dec, or Jan... I am not pregnant.

And, again being honest, it's probably a good thing. Mark's still not working, the house isn't ready for a 2nd baby yet, and we both still want to give 100% to Jack (we always will, but I'm sure you understand what I mean) while he's so young.

BUT... It would have been nice. And we were just starting to get our hopes up too, thinking that maybe we'd be having a little girl this time because I didn't feel physically the same as I did when I was carrying Jack.

I'd taken a test on New Years Day when I spotted I'd missed 2 cycles, and it came up neg. But so had the first test I took with Jack.

Then I missed a 3rd cycle and got my brain ticking again. Did nothing for a couple of weeks, then went and bought a 2pack. First of those came up with the faintest of faint lines... There enough for me and Mark to see it - just - but not enough to really be considered a line.

So I thought I'd give it another week, take the 2nd test and get an apointment with the doc or nurse to see what's up - pos or neg - thinking that if I wasn't expecting then SOMETHING was wrong with me!

A week went by and this monday I did the test. Another neg. So I called up the docs and got an apt for this thu.

Guess what happened 10 mins later? Natures own way of letting me know I'm NOT pregnant.

But at least I do know, and everything seems to be working as it should now. Can't help feeling a bit sad about it though.

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'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…

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
