Sunday Dinner #4

Hee hee hee! I've got RIGHT into this Sunday Roast business... Today was Lamb!

I've been saving that till last for a few reasons, firstly it's bloody expensive so I had to wait until payday (it cost over £8 for this lump of meat), and secondly Mark is very - erm - particular about his lamb which puts me off cooking it in case I get it wrong.

But I didn't! I was LOVELY! Nice and tender, full of flavour... I did roast spuds again, and roast parsnips too, as well as veg and gravy. Even Jack wolfed his lamb (which I didn't expect after not managing the beef last week).

There's still quite a bit on the bone to carve too with it being a big leg, so we'll be able to nibble bits for the next couple of days too. Just need to find something nice to do with cold lamb. Seems a shame to just stick it on a butty.

I've also been getting stuck into my sewing again.

Squiggles sampler is more than half way done. This is the bottom half. I've got a bit further now, with most of the top half done too. Just have to do the pretty edging and outlines after that and then I can put it away until Squiggle is born.

Then I'll start work on my next project... I'm going to try my hand at crochet. Hope it goes better than my knitting :o(

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…
