1 month to our due date!

Wooo!

Just one month to go - maximum. Potentially less (I hope less). There's still stuff to do, but the pressure is off now. Mark has started to put some stuff in the loft. I think if Jack hadn't been ill we'd have more stuff up there so it isn't all done yet but with very good reason. Jack seems to be well on the mend now too so hopefully we can get moving again soon. As it's polling day today me and Mark walked Jack down to the community centre (our polling station for the day) so he's had chance to go out and get some fresh air and exercise, although it's wiped him out, poor thing.

We need to do some more baby / house shopping, so that's cutting in on our remaining prego time. I get paid in a little over a week. We need to get some more storage boxes which will fit through the loft hatch. I want to buy a birthing ball before it's too late. Both Jack and I need to have our hair cut (Jack so he doesn't start to look like a girl, me so I don't end up ripping it out by the roots mid labour), and I might still buy a few bits for Squiggle too.

As Jack is having a nap at the moment I am debating wether to use this time to have a bath and pamper myself a little bit, or to go through the cloth nappies and 0-3 month baby clothes and make a list of anything we need to buy. A bath sounds great, but so does baby stuff! I know I'll feel disinclined to do either this evening once he's in bed for the night because I'll just want to go to bed myself then (Oh the joys of pregnancy, in bed by 9pm at the lastest). There's no massive urgency in either. I'm not going anywhere so don't need to have fresh radient skin (just so long as I don't pong, and I have had a wash), and I can't buy anything until the 15th so sorting through the baby stuff would just be a fun exersize with some list writting involved...

I wonder if Jack will nap long enough for me to do both???

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…
