Insulation Part 2

Had another chappy in today to sort out the loft! Ooooh! The house is lovely and warm now! (not that it was cold to start with, but now it's toasty!) Mark is a little worried about putting stuff BACK in the loft though because there is SO MUCH insulation in there now that you can't see the beams :oS

Mark has pulled 17 boxes of stuff and two suitcases out of the loft. And a window. No idea where the window has come from, or what it was for. It's getting tipped! As for the boxes and suitcases.... I have no idea! Some of it looks like my ex's stuff! Well that can all go, simple as. If he wanted it he would have taken with him, and I certainly don't have any use for Kylie videos or Blackburn Rovers momorabilia. I haven't dared look inside the suitcases!

In truth, most of this stuff has been there since I moved in back in June/July 2000. Some of it was already there when I moved in! If I have gone the last 9 1/2 years without giving it a second thought I imagine most of it can go. Mark found a box of plastic dinosaurs which are worth cleaning up and giving to Jack so I will have a mooch through just in case. Some of it will be old college work and school work, but it's got damp and is likely to be mouldy so I don't really want to be keeping that.

The other side to this though, is that all these boxes and things are in Jack's big boy room.... so I really need to get a move on and sift through it so that I can clear that room. I really want that room ready by his birthday.... and that's only a month (and 2 days) away!

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
