Weekend Away

It was Kate's birthday on Friday, so after my hosp apt we drove over, via my mum's and picking Jenny's feller Ash up. The traffic could not have been any worse! It took us 45 mins to drive the 20 miles between Lancaster & Preston and we wound up being rediculaaly late for poor Ash who had never laid eyes on me and Yorkie and was now going to have to spend the next couple of hours squeezed into my car with us and Jack. Still, he seems like a lovely guy.

We had a lovely weekend. It was nice meeting Ash, he and Yorkie played on the PS2 together and got some good male bonding done! Saturday we went round to Kates. Gary, Rachel and kids were there, as were Bob & Rach, Us, Jenny & Ash, and Joy (And Kate & Dave obviously!). We stuffed ourselves silly with Tacos! But it was so hot that Jack and Alex couldn't or wouldn't sleep - or eat - and we wound up with cranky babas.

On Sunday we called in on David & Dee and had some lunch. Jack was thrilled to bits with the bunnies! (Mmm.... I still have that old Hutch under the house!) And this time he fell asleep right after eating and didn't wake up again unil we were half way back to my mums!

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
