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!

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…
