OMG! It's nearly Christmas!

And I am NO WHERE NEAR ready!

In fact I am off to town this afternoon to buy a few more bits, and get my CD player put in the car (So I can play my Christmas CDs). And I'll be doing the same tomorrow too.

How has it got to December already? So far I have bought something for Mum and John, ordered something for Mark which hasn't come, and bought a few bits for Jack. Between me and Mark we have some bit for some of the other kiddies in the family and he's made a good start on his family. It's normally the other way round... Me that has most things done, dusted, wrapped and bagged up according to where it's going and Mark in a flap in the last few days. (He's just read that bit and walked off chuckling, adding a cheeky "Whoot" as he walked out of the room, grrrrr)

I do at least know what I want to get for my Dad and Fay, and Jenny has given me some tips on what to get for a few people too. Jack has a TON of stuff, but no stocking fillers yet, so I'm on with that too. Sort of.

GAHH!

Christmas shopping is a LOT easier when you're NOT pregnant, and are capable of thinking in a straight line!

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…
