Williamson Park & the Butterfly House


Butterfly House
Originally uploaded by chiggster
My mum came over yesterday so we took the kids up to Williamson's Park. Tom dozed through most of it, but Jack had a great time. We went on the playground first and Jack ran round and round there and played with his football. Then we had a very over priced lunch (with the slowest service in Lancaster) before having a wander around the butterfly house, mini beast house and small mammal pens.

Well, when I say wander..... mum cuddled Tom and I followed Jack round while he charged round at 100 mph! He did enjoy it though, he counted the fish and birds, and was intregued by the crisalis case, and liked watching the stick insects tank get cleaned. He was a bit tired by the time we got to the bunnies and guinniepigs so he didn't really spend any time looking at them, just runing round the pens until his little legs almost gave out!

I got loads of photos and mini-vid clips on Flickr if you wanna look :o)

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…
