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!

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
