Swimming!

Just got back from taking Jack swimming. I don't think we've been sice we were in France... To be honest I haven't been happy at the idea of taking him swimming when it's winter incase he gets a chill on the way home. Silly I know, but that's how I felt. Anyway. The weather is warmer now, and although today is too damp to go to the park as I'd planned, it's ideal for a swim at the baths!

He was a little freaked out at first - I think he'd forgotten how to swim. His head went under a few times including when he first went down the toddler slide, but he soon got over it and was having fun with the other kiddies messing about with floats and actually going up and down the slide continuously for almost half an hour!

He tried out the spa pool, but wasn't sure about the bubbles, and the big pool, where he had to cling onto me because he can't reach the bottom. In the end we only came out at 12 because he was getting hungrey!

For me it was really nice to be weightless for a while! My bump is getting pretty big and heavy these days and my back is suffering so having an hour and a half in the water felt wonderful (even if Jack did dunk me once). I think we might start to do this more often again. We used to go quite often last summer so there's no reason why not! And when Squiggle's here daddy will have to come too!! Yay!

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…
