Weekend Catch Up

I've had a pretty good week. Jen's been over with Conner to meet Tom and have a play-date with Jack (These Thomas Trains are proving very popular! I know what I'll be getting Conner for his next birthday!). Kathy's been over with Katie too (although both kiddies where tired and stroppy and didn't get on as well as normal). And my mum's been over with John and took me and the boys to Happy Mount Park for an afternoon of sunshine and fun. Our health Visitor has been back in too and we seem to be doing ok.

I've been a bit naughty on the diet front though - partly because it's been pay day this week and partly because it's been too warm and stuffy to cook. We've had a Chinese take-away, and delivery pizza this week. Oh, and a McDonald's when mum came over *shame* Mark also bought me some sweets from Julian Graves which only just lasted the week....

That said I have still managed to lose a little weight, just a pound and a half. I'm putting it down to post-baby-loss still as normally scoffing like this would have been a big gain! I am kicking myself a bit though... imagine how much lighter I would be if I had not stuffed my face with crap!

On another note entirely, this is an expensive weekend for me :oD Today is my mums birthday (I must call her in a bit, wish her a happy day and make sure those expensive flowers have arrived) and tomorrow is Fathers Day which these days means cards from both boys to Mark, both boys to my dad, and me to my dad (Mark sorts out stuff for his dad himself).Not to mention presents for daddy from the boys too. Only they haven't arrived yet! Play.com sent them a while back now, but no sign... Luckily I went to town yesterday and bought a little extra something just in case.

Being Saturday Mark & Jack are off to Dads Club again. Tom is snoozing in his bouncy chair by my feet and I am (finally) having a TV catch up since the World Cup is the only time Mark ever wants to watch football (understandable, I'm not complaining. It's the only time I ever want to watch it too) so I haven't had chance to watch all the stuff I recorded last week, and I'm already recording the next lot! My digi-box is going to be full at this rate :oD I guess I'll have to do a little housework too, but I'm not going to break my neck over it today.

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…
