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!

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!
