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!

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…
