A good nights sleep!

Ohhh... how your ideas of a good nights sleep can change :oD

So far, most nights, Tom has been wanting a feed every hour or hour and a half, and hasn't wanted to settle into his own bed. Couple that with Jack having a few rough nights too (doesn't do well with the heat, and night before last his nappy ripped open and split crystals all over his bed!) and you get a very tired mummy & daddy!

Well last night was different! Last night we didn't have a peep out of Jack until 6.30am - which is fine - and Tom only woke to be fed at our bed time, 1am and 5am! Effectively he only disturbed my sleep once as by the time he'd had hid 5am feed & nappy change Jack was up.

We had a lovely half hour lounging in bed, Mark & I, with both our kiddies. Jack laughing, gigglimg and scrambling all over us, Tom chilling out and taking it all in. I like this whole family thing!

Now I am enjoying the peace and quiet brought by Mark taking Jack to Dad's club. I'm sat snuggling a well fed and clean bottomed Tom while I catch up on my soaps and wait for the midwife to visit. The sun is shining, I have the door open to let in the light & fresh air. Everything is wonderful!

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…
