December 1st! Whooooooooo!

Hee hee hee hee!

Christmas is getting closer! I've pretty much all of my shopping now, and most of the crafting too. Jack opened the first window on his calander this morning. Tom's still a bit little for that yet (poor mite, I do feel mean) but he is getting extra cuddle and kisses instead.

They are both down for a nap at the moment, and I am toying with the idea of getting their Christmas suits out so that when they get up I can dress them up and take some photos. I'm thinking Christmas Cards, Desktop Wallpaper, Avatars for the forum, facebook etc.... Jack is an Elf, Tom is a Christmas Pudding *dance*

The Christmas Tree is still firmly up in the loft though. I have been hinting (out right pestering actually) for a while only to have Mark say "It's only fecking November!" but he can't say that now, can he? Hee hee! He keeps going on about the "12 days of Christmas" which is all very well, but that starts on Christmas day, right? (I'm pretty certain on that fact, message me if I'm wrong) NO WAY ARE WE WAITING TILL THEN!

Today is the first day of advent.... today should be Christmas Tree day!

I'll work on him again when he gets home. I'd do it myself but he assures me I wont be able to get in the loft now that the floor's been raised, and there's no light up there, and he knows where all the Christmas stuff is and I don't.... I have to agree that me trying to get it while I am alone with the kids might not be a smart idea. (I've already nearly killed myself going down the back steps with the laundry  - Icey steps! Eek! - I'll be taking the phone with me to call 999 if I do go over and break something!)

Oh, and I've been playing Christmas songs to the kids off YouTube too!

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…
