Popped home (not really here!)


Livingroom (during) Storage!!!

I have been missing my hubby SO much! It's very odd being apart from him. We are so rarely apart for more than a few hours. So I am really glad that I managed to pop home and see him as well as the progress being made on the house. It's just a shame that I couldn't bring Jack too.

The first thing I noticed when I got home was the lack of wall paper in the stairway! That was not something I thought we were doing just yet! But apparently waiting for the filler to set in the living room was too frustrating for Mark so he thought he might as well start on the stairs too... The nesting bug has burrowed it's way deep into him I think!

But back to the living room. The artex has gone and the paper is up on the ceiling. The old paper and paint is gone from the walls and all the new paper was up, with just a couple of feet of painting to do (Mark knew how much I wanted to do SOME of the painting!) so we finished that together and bobbed out to B&Q for some more bits and pieces, including a nice new light fitting (I've always hates the one that's in there).

Mark went off to the job centre for half an hour (and has seen some jobs he fancies too!) and I gave the place a good sweep / hoover / scrub over, and then we spent the afternoon building the cubies. After that Mark started to being down boxes of books and DVDs and so on for me to unpack and put away.

Exhausting work! It deserved a little Chinese food from Boon (mainly because the Kitchen it pretty much unusable for someone who's bump is as big as mine, until we finish unpacking!).

He's thinking that we (Jack & I) might be able to come home properly on Sunday. There's still some stuff to bring down and sort out, and Jack's new room to strip & re-paper/paint. The main obstacle is finding a place for the old book case.... we'd planned on putting it in our bedroom but the new bed is that little bit wider than the old one (like 2 inches) so now it wont fit! Which means that case and all the stuff we wanted to put on it are now floating about the house, homeless and under our feet!

Always fun!

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…
