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!

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…
