Resolutions

Last year I said.....
On to New Years Resolutions.... anyone else got any this year?

Mine are to start cooking proper Sunday Dinners (now we have a good oven, there's no excuse!), and to get the hose decorated again. Our room, Jack's"big boy" room, the livingroom, and (if pushed) the stairs & landing too.

Mark suggested that he might quit smoking again. I'm hoping it's also to get a new job, as we're REALLY going to need the money very soon!

And this is how we did!

We live in a smoke free home! Well done Mark who quite back in October and has stayed off them even though he's gone back to work.

We have has a roast every week unless we were away or too ill to cook (which we agreed was acceptable)

The livingroom is almost decorated (celing to paint...), Jack's room is almost finished (vent cover to put up and drawers to mend), stairs & landing are half way done, our room never got touched. But as my beloved husband is a true procrastinator I don't think that's too bad (yes, the bits that are left over are the bits he was going to do, apart from our bedroom which we have just put off indefinatly)

Now for 2011

For me it's going to have to be the tradidtional "Weight Loss" becuase I am far too big. It's not healthy, it's not atractive, it needs to change. We do now have a Wii so I am getting on the Wii Fit Plus and the Wi iSport & Resort games to get some cals burned. I can even do that with Jack, and sometimes Tom too. I am signed up with Weight Watchers again too. Since I'm back to work in a few weeks and Tom is due his first tooth soon I'll be cutting bak on breastfeeding so there's no excuse to over indulge myself.

LEARN CROCHET! I have been collecting these damn magazines for months now, and it's about time I learned from them!

I think I'll be pushing that hubby of mine to finish off this DIY we started last year. He wont let me to the stairs and landing, or the celing of the front room, and I wouldn't know where to start with mending the big chest of drawers in Jacks room other wise I would have already done it myself.

Anyway... that's the kids waking up from their naps, so it's back into mummy mode. (Cuddles for the baby and Mario Kart Wii for the big'un!)

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…
