We have a confirmed case of Chicken Pox

After a rough night poor Jack was up, showered, lotioned and dressed in time to go off to the docs for 10.30 - despite the powercut that affected the whole street and all the way down to the Spar.

The doc took one look at Jack's belly and agreed that it was Chicken Pox. And that the waxy ears and grumpiness in the run up to the blisters showing was all part of it. I said we were giving him calpol and calamine lotion and he said that was exactly right. His appitie should be back in a few days and in the meantime letting him have the fruit he wants and plenty of drinks is fine. We've also been given some piritin for him which he canhave a night to help sooth any itch and help him sleep.

On the plus side, since the highest concentration on blisters has been inside his nappy, we have been able to get Jack to sit on his potty a lot. We needed him to get some fresh air to those parts to help the blisters heal, and since he's a little tired and clingy, getting him to sit on his potty and read some books has been easy. He's not actually "used" his potty yet, but he's getting the idea that sitting on it without a nappy on and reading a book or playing with a toy is a nice thing to do. So here's hoping somthing good comes out of this.

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…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
