Happy 2010!

New Year was a bit of a flop this year. These nasty colds that are doing the rounds are well and truely settled in this house. I'm still trying to come out of it, and my dear hubby is sinking deeper into snot. Lovely...

We wound up with an early night and some movies, a kiss at midnight, and then sleep.

Still. I managed to cook up a nice New Years dinner. I roasted a chicken (having recently over come my phobia of roasting poultry) and some spuds. And it was pretty damn good! Jack couldn't shovel chicken into his tummy quick enough! Which is amazing for Jack who tends to avoid meat where he can.

On to New Years Resolutions.... anyone else got any this year?

Mine are to start cooking proper Sunday Dinners (now we have a good oven, there's no excuse!), and to get the hose decorated again. Our room, Jack's"big boy" room, the livingroom, and (if pushed) the stairs & landing too.

Mark suggested that he might quit smoking again. I'm hoping it's also to get a new job, as we're REALLY going to need the money very soon!

So, to everybody we wish a Happy New Year, and a prosperous 2010.

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…
