Nesting Phase 1 - New Bed!

The new bed came today. It was supposed to arrive between 10am and 2pm so Mark thought he'd get a good early start on pulling the old bed to bits ready to have it out of the way so the new bed can go in. This was around 8.30 - 9am

It's not quite worked out that way so far.... as it is now 8pm and we still don't have the new bed up, even though it arrived at an excpetionally early 8.55am.

My dear husband doesn't just chuck stuff out. I would have just skipped it or tipped it. People like me are the reason why we have landfill issues. He hasn't just separated the two halves of the divan, he has removed all the fabric, salvaged all the wood, and and spent most of the afternoon pulling the springs and other metally bits off what is left. There are neat(ish) piles of foam, boxes and bags of springs, and a stack of beams. He's still going.

I think the beams will become parts of shelving at some point. I was offered the foam if I could think of anything to do with it. I can't. The rest I think will be going to the tip and disposed of in the correct recycling area. I'm very proud of my Green husband.

But there is just one thing that's bothering me. In 2 hours time I'm really going to be wanting to go to bed. The old bed is still not fully down, or removed, and the new bed is still sat in it's boxes in the livingroom.

I think we might be sleeping on the old mattress at this rate! Either that or he'll be working through the night while I kip on the sofa!

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…
