Nearly Christmas!!!

I have just ONE MORE present to arrive (and it's my hubby's MAIN present, but it should be here tomorrow) and then that's it. I've done all my shopping and wrapping. I am SO poor now... less than £20 in my account (until my tax credit finally turn up, when ever that might be).

But it will all be worth it when my hubby and my son open their presents. And everyone else too, but mainly Mark & Jack. I may have got a little carried away this year... which is not good on a reduced income, but hey, it's Christmas. And I've managed not to go into debt for it.

I'm also thinking that maybe, just MAYBE, this might be a White Christmas this year? I'm not talking about
the definition of an official white Christmas used most widely, notably by those placing and taking bets, is for a single snow flake (perhaps amongst a shower of rain and snow mixed) to be observed falling in the 24 hours of 25 December.
I'm talking about a good layer of snow where WE are so we can build a snowman with Jack! And it might just happen. Maybe. If we're lucky! There's snow here, but not thick. There's hail, rain and sleet too... boo! There's loads of snow at Mums (in fact, we got caught in it yesterday and lost control of the car briefly on the way home. No harm done.) There's snow forecast for Jenny's the the next few days too...! Of cause the other thought is.... of we get the snow, will we manage to gt together for christmas! O_o I don't want snow THAT badly!

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…
