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!

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
