Good news!

It looks like my hubby has finally got some work! Proper work, not just cover work! Keeping himself available for this car park attending has finally paid off. He did a couple of days at the end of last week, cover work. And the chap he covered for told him that he wants to drop down to part time on a week-on-week-off basis. He used to do it before but the chap he shared with died (doom!) a year ago. Now he wants to go back to the same system and mentioned it to Mark. A little while later he rang Mark up, along with the boss bloke, and they talked it though. Then the boss-bloke came to see Mark.... and he starts in 2 days time!

Ok, so it's part time, and it doesn't earn a fortune. But so what? Part time means I can do the same when I go back in Feb and for the most part we can avoid expensive child care. I'll work a long week when he's off, and a short week when he's on. We only need child care on his on-week, and that'll be just 2 days if my boss is ok with me working a 2-day-week/3-day-week rotation too (which he will)

Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
