Waiting....

Anyone who knows me knows I HATE waiting. I'm an "I want everything yesterday" kind of person. I know it. I'm comfortable with it. it's part of who I am.

Today I am having to wait. I'm waiting for the second hand gearbox I've ordered to arrive, with a hint of trepidation: what if it doesn't come and I've been conned out of £130?

I am also in my Two Week Wait now, and feeling bloated, nauseous, irritable etc. this could be because I am so stressed (and to be fair, probably is) or it could be "signs!" I'm thinking the former. I'm itching to do a test, but that would be pointless, and I'd just get my hopes up for 5 mins while the test took, and then be gutted when it comes up negative.

I really should hold off until my birthday, at the earliest, since that's when AF is due to pay a visit, and really REALLY should wait until the 31st which is my official testing day.

But I know what I'm like, and in a couple of days time - when I am at my earliest viable testing day with an early test - I'll be peeing on that stick and winding myself up.

Question: If I KNOW I'm like this... why do I let myself get carried away? Answers on a postcard please!

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…
