Aaaaaaaaand..... relax *ahhhhhh*

No more work for a year!!! 
Whoohoo!

I got a box of nice choccies and a hug from my few remaining staff on site and my last day was pleasantly uneventful. I managed to stay clear of *her*, was wished well by the bosses and told it was ok to bring baby in to see everyone (but on a quiet day considering my due date is in the busy summer!)

It feels odd though... Last time the birth was imminent... due two weeks after my last day, but born 1 week after. This time I have ages! And loads to do... but still. A bit of an anticlimax.

I am simply going to HAVE to throw myself into my nesting phase!

Our new bed comes on Monday. This bed that we have was here when I moved in, and it's dropping to bits! Literally. It's broken and has been for months! So we've used the Argos vouchers we have been saving for the last couple of years (many thanks to friends and family) to buy a nice new one! Yay!! The old bed is divan, this one isn't, so we instantly have some more storage space under this bed (just need some storage boxes to put under there) for things like out of season cloths, kiddies cloths, books... you get the idea! Basically, a lot of the stuff which is taking up Jack's big-boy-room.

I think, after that, I'll push to get this skip hired. There's stuff that needs getting rid of under the house and in the back garden. Once that's gone we'll have a bit more room for the stuff we actually WANT to keep. Hopefully with some space under the house Mark'll put up the new door (and lock) and will start to store his tools in there and not in my kitchen (grrrrrrrrrrrr).

I think Mark has caught the bug too.... he's planning on dismantling the old bed pretty much as soon as we're up on Monday, and then getting some new shelving up ready and ready before needing to put the bed up in time for sleepy time :oD He's been cutting and painting wood ready all week!!

Yay! No work! Yay! Nesting! Yay!

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…
