Tom's a month old - already

Yesterday Tom turned 1 month old. Isn't he cute? And he still has all that LOVELY hair! People keep commenting on how much hair he has, how lovely it is, and how much it sticks up :oD I really hope he doesn't lose it like poor Jack did. I thought I saw a bit of cradle cap starting the other day, but what ever it was seems to have gone now (Maybe he was just a bit grubby?)

It's already going too fast. I'm finding myself really not wanting to go back to work. I feel like I missed too much of Jack growing up by going back to work when he was only 6 months old.

Tom will be 8 months old when I go back, and I still think it's too early. I want to be a stay at home mum!

But anyway, nothing I can do about it right now. We need a lottery win or something ( or Mark getting a well enough paid job, hint hint! ;oD ) before I can really consider not going back or postponing when I do go back. So moving on....

We took the boys out yesterday. It looked like the weather was going to be a bit changeable so we opted to do an inside thing and went to the Aquarium Of The Lakes up in the Lake District. It was a nice do too, the kids both got in for free as they are under 3 years old, and it was only £8.95 each for us oldies.

Too be honest Jack is still a little too young to really appreciate somewhere like that, but he did enjoy himself. He likes the Monitor Lizard, the Marmoset Monkeys and the touch pool (which turned out NOT to be a touch pool, oops!) the best. In the touch pool there were some small ray/skate type fish (no sign up to say what was in this one) which started to swim up to Jack and lift it's "nose" out of the water doing what looked like a little dance. Jack thought it was so much fun! And he liked the hermit crabs and starfish too.

I'm hoping this lovely weather lasts a little longer yet. It's our anniversary on Tuesday (9 years together, 3 years married) and since we can't do the whole dinning out thing with the kids (no sitter, need to be able to feed Tom, Jack is not really ready for Restaurants) we thought we'd do a fun family thing. We're thinking about going to a zoo or something. It wont be as much fun in the rain. I'll take plenty of photos if it all works out and we do go!

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…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
