HOW MANY GIFTS FOR JACK???

In this photo you can see a FEW of Jack's presents. This does not count the ones we couldn't fit in the car, those from Uncle Bob & Auntie Rach, all the stuff that's still at Nana's from her, Grandad John and his family, OR the stuff we'll be buying in the New Year with the money Mamee and Pappee sent over..... Can anyone say "Spoiled Rotten"?

I can safely say I am DREADING next year with 2 kiddies worth of gifts. I may hire a lorry.

We have had a lovely Christmas. We made it away to my mums late the night before Christmas eve by fighting through the snow and ice and woke up to a blanket of snow on Christmas Eve morning. It all looked lovely! After from brecky we took off for Jenny's and made decent time given the weather (which, just for once, was LESS snowy on the Yorks side of the hills...)

Christmas day was really nice, with a mountain of presents for Jack, a scrummy dinner cooked by Jenny, and then a trip over to Grandad and Grandma Dee's for tea. Jack went round having a "taste" of eveyones drinks... until he was a little merry! Whoops! When we got back to Jenny's he was bursting into everyones bedrooms and shouting "Rahh!" as he dove onto their bed! He slept until 10am next morning!

On Boxing Day Bob & Rach came over and we we all went to Grandma Kates. My camera started to act up so I don't have as many photos as I would have liked, but we got a few. Alex and Jack had fun playing on the slide in the back garden and pinching crisps from the buffet!

The next day we we called in on Rachel & Garry and the kids. Jack's had a taste of sharing toys, and doesn't like it. (Think we're going to need some more practice pretty soon!)

Monday we thought we'd better start heading back to my said of the hills, so we stopped in on Grandad & Dee, and Grandma and Dave one last time for this festive season and made the drive back to Nana's - ready for phase 2 of the present opening! There was another mountain of toys, books and jumpers at Nana's from her, John and John's family.

We had a chilled out day and Nana's watching some of the DVDs we got and letting Jack run himself out tearing around the house and after a couple of nights thought we really should go home before New Year....

So here we are. Jack's asleep in bed. My hubby is busy trying to build HIS last present (A work bench, which is living up to his name. It's been an hour and a half and it's still only half built, hee hee). When Jack wakes up he can have his last few bits - the ones that wouldn't fit in the car to take away. But most of all, we're looking forward to a night in our own bed. Going away is brilliant, but there's no place like home... and your own comfy old bed :oD

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
