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!

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
