Much nesting!

I woke up at 4.30 this morning, Jack had sqawked in his sleep and woken us both up, but as Mark was getting up to him he settled down again. Unfortunatly, I was awake by then so after half an hour tossing and turning I gave up and came down stairs.

In the last 3 1/2 hours I have tidied and wiped down the livingroom, cleared off the "cooking" half of the kitchen and given it a scrub, neatened up the "workshop" half. I have put on a load of washing, stacked the dishwasher and set that off. I've got Jack up, changed (twice), fed him and read him 3 books. I've even had time for my own breakfast and some facebooking and forum posts!

Still got more to do though, once the dishwasher finishes I have to empty and restack that (I am just finishing wading through the stuff Mark used while I was away topped up with what we've used since I've come back) then I can give the sink a good scub out. I want to run around the bathroom too, it's become a workshop too while we've been painting and it looks really grotty in there right now.

I also need to hoover the middle bedroom (or at least 2/3 of it that I can get to) as - now that the painting is finished in there are the border is up - the first half of the bunkbed is arriving today! (thank you Mum & John). And I really need to (or maybe get Mark to) find a way of clearing the landing, even if it's just for one day, so that we can actually GET the bunkbed up there!

Don't know why I woke up with so much energy today.... it's bound to run out sooner rather than later. I was up till around 10pm sorting out the middle room and putting the border up, and then took an age to nod off. I think this must be the last burst of energy left over from 2nd Tri before the 3rd Tri fatigue kicks in! Might as well make the most of it though :oD

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…
