My last post as a 20-something

Woooer! Not sure how I feel about turning 30 just yet. I don't think I feel 30. Prob best not to dwell on it too much....

On the up side, I do now have my car back. It wound up with a replacement clutch as well as gear box. Still, not massively expensive, and my BOSS paid for the repairs! Whoohoo!

AND we even had a good weekend at work this weekend, practically unheard of! At least for the summer season anyway. The staff are a bit happier (or at least quieter, might not be the same thing with hidesight) and we managed to get finished on time this Saturday. The first time all summer (although first week we were only 1 minute over! That SHOULD count!)

NEXT WEEKEND I'M OFF WORK! YAY!!!! About bloomin time too!

Best of all though, (this is coded speak now to avoid TMI, the forum girlies know what I mean) tomorrow is POAS day on the forum, so I am getting involved - as it is my time to do so - and *might* get the result I want with a bit of luck. That would be the BEST present of all if it were to happen! Have been talked into using one of my CBDigi instead of ICs which have been neg all week. Didn;t need MUCH arm twisting to be honest!

And finally.... tomorrow I get to eat the chocolate cake that my dear sweet darling husband is making for me!

8 years I have been waiting for this cake. 8 YEARS! I thought it was odd when I came home from a last meeting pre-break to find that Yorkie and Jack had been to town and back in under 3 hours. Odd things were secreted about the kitchen (well, odd for us) such as whipping cream, spreadable chocolate, etc. I thought it was better I that I didn't let on I'd seen them, and not venture into the kitchen further than I had to. To the point that I ordered a take-away rather than cook and stumble upon anything. Later, not long after Jack had gone to bed, hubby offers me the computer. Unheard of! While I'm tapping away on the forum and facebook I can hear him pottering about in the kitchen. Punctuated by swearing and huffing. And questions about the scales (which are giggered). I went to fix the scales as he was asking "does this look like 4oz?" and noooo, it looked like 12oz of flour. So I fixed the scales and didn't ask any questions.....

"You weren't supposed to see any of this" he says.

Mmmm! Choc cake! Stuff for chocolate cake all over the surfaces! YUMMY!

AND HE'S MADE CHOC FUDGE FILLING/TOPPING!

AND LET ME LICK THE CAKE BOWL!

I'm being sent to bed now so he can wrap my pres *Giggle*

I think being 30 might be ok after all

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…
