Last Post Before Christmas!

This is my chance to wish a Merry Christmas to anyone we wont be seeing this side of the festivities... with a bit of luck tonight (failing that, tomorrow morning) we'll be off with all the prezzies and away! The snow here is clearing. It rained last night and so far today there has only been a bit of hail - although mum called and said they were having a blizzard in Burnley!

Typically though, I'm feeling ill. My throat has been getting sore for the last few days, and today is really hurting. I'm tired too. I would have thought that the penicillin I am taking at the moment would have fought off any nasty bugs, but apparently not (either that, or I would be a lot worse without it!). I'm full of sneezes and snot too.

I think Jack might be a little off as well, he's been fighting me with his meals the last couple of days, and today all he wants to do is cuddle. It's lovely, but a little out of character. Makes me think he's feeling poorly too.

I'm supposed to be going to see Jacquie and family today in Warrington, but I'm not up to the drive, not when I have either a drive through the snow to mum's tonight, or a long drive all the way to S. Yorks tomorrow without stopping if the snow doesn't let up. I feel bad about it, but I'll just have to catch up after Christmas.

I think I'll have a long hot bath once Jack goes for his nap this afternoon, followed by a nap of my own!

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
