Jack masters the Cargo Net!


Jack masters the Cargo Net!

Two trips to the park in two days! Jack must think all his birthdays and christmases have come at once! But since Daddy needs the space and the quiet to get on with the DIY, and as the weather is good, it seems foolish NOT to go to the park!

Today Jack figured out the cargo net on the toddlers climbing frame. He'd watched another older girl be tought how to climb up by her dad - and she wasn't having any of it despite him giving her very good instructions. As soon as they moved off he wanted a go!

I gave him a helping hand the first couple of times he went up, showing not to over reach his legs, giving him a push on the bum to get an extra bit of lift... but it was only a short period of time before he had it sorted!

So now it's up the net, across the bridge and down the slide instead of just up the steps. If only I could convince him to WALK over the bridge instead of crawl....

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…
