Making a start on Jack's room

This is going to be a major task! This is how the room looks at the moment

Phase 1 of Jack's Big Boy Room:
De-clutter

It's a mess, right? Well all that stuff needs to come out. And be re-homed somewhere.... the big set of drawers is going back, and he's getting a set of bunk beds from my mum's house.

The carpet needs cleaning, as do the curtains. We needs to strip the walls and redecorate (we think there is wood chip under the painted paper which is on the walls. What fun!) and the ceiling too...

We've gone for a blue and cream scheme, with a dark blue up to about 1/3 of the way up the wall, a border (Disney Cars) and a warm creamy colour from there up. We'll probably use the cream for the whole of the window wall.

I've also got some Thomas the Tank Engine removable wall stickers. His two favorite things at the moment at Thomas and Toy Story so these are the themes we're going for. And they are easily changeable as he grows up. He already has a Thomas duvet set and bedside lamp. We'll be getting Toy Story duvet set for him too and (since there is a new Toy Story movie coming out sometime this year) we'll add more Toy Story stuff as it comes on the market.

Jack has already spent a little bit of time in this room over the last few days, just getting used to the space, and he seems to like it so far!

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…
