Apples!

I was fortunate enough not to have to work the whole of today after all. The combination of my (hopefully) new Saturday guy doing a sound job, and a sick cleaner needing to get a lift home, meant I was home myself by1pm! Yay!

Jack had already had his lunch, but was facinated by me eating mine, which was only a tuna pasta pot and an apple. Nothing he has never seen before.

He really REALLY wanted my apple. I was going to share it with him once I finished my tuna, but he wanted it NOW so Yorkie went to fetch him one of his own.

He played with it for a while, not sure of what to do. He had eaten an apple by himself - a couple of small bites - once, but that was ages ago, and he seemed to have forgotten what to do. So Daddy took a bite out to get him started. Jack took his apple back, looked at the bite taken out, looked at me taking bites out of mine, and the penny dropped.

For the next hour and 45 mins he has been chewing on this apple (with breaks while he played with something else) and has now chewed it right down to the pips!

I think it's safe to say that we don't need to bother peeling and chopping up his apples for him anymore!

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…
