A little good fortune

I fell out with N Power a while ago, they are just a bit rubbish. Remember years ago when they used to plug themselves as being the energy provider who would send you just one bill for both electric & gas and therefore save you money? Yeah? Well, it was a lie. At no point in the 8 - 9 years I was with them did they ever set this method of payment up. When I quizzed them they simply said "It's not available". Add onto that the small things like a total failure to spell my name right, change my name on the bills once I got married, inability to answer straight forward questions like "how much should I be paying you".... Well. As I said, I'd had enough.

I don't pretend to believe that any other providers would be any better, but I fancied a change and British Gas gave me a call on a day when I was particularly hacked off with N Power. So I switched.

Today I got a cheque from N Power for over £270 is money I had OVERPAID them! Whoo hoo! (I always thought my payments were too high, and now I know it).

This money will buy pretty much everything we need to get for Squiggle: the mattresses for the cots & basket, a bouncing chair, bulk buy of nappy liners, a few clothes (if s/he's a girl!) and "coming home from hospital" out fit!

It's a good day!

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…
