More snow

I may be re-thinking this whole White Christmas thing....

This morning the snow here is so thick that no one can get their cars off the street. Mark, Kev and Rob had to get the bus to Asda this morning instead of going in Rob's car, and I have no idea if I'll be able to pick them up at the end of the day!

More snow is forecast for the rest of the day, with sub-zero temps tonight. I've suggested that if the roads are clear at the end of tomorrow that we head straight to my mums tomorrow night instead of waiting till the morning. Mark'll have to do his last minute shopping in Burnley. At least that way we'll be a bit closer to the In-Laws and wont have as far to drive in one go.

It's crossed my mind that maybe we wont get out of Lancaster! Which is a bit of a worry as we don't have anything that would pass as a Christmas Dinner here - apart from the pud and other sweets we bought to take to Jenny's. Christmas day here - just the 3 of us - wouldn't feel like Christmas. It'd just be another day, with presents. Don't fancy that! Mark suggested he buy a roast, just in case. It can always go in the freezer for another day....

I do still want a White Christmas, but I want the roads to be clear enough to get to where we're going too!

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 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

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…
