Can't believe how little time I have....

It seems like I blink now, and I miss a whole week. Or even a month! Life is just so busy at the moment that I simply don't seem to have time to sit down and write this thing. Which is a real shame because I know I'll want to look back at it in hte future to when Jack was 3 and Tom was less than 1 and there'll be next to nothing to read :o(

The last few weeks have been bonkers though. After Jack's birthday it all went down hill....

First off the kitchen cupboard fell off the wall onto my head, breaking pretty much all my glasses and scattering foot all over. The cupboard is now in the livingroom taking up too much space, and the kitchen is a bomb site since we have just lost 1/4 of our storage!

And then we all got struck with Gastric Flu which was pretty horrid! Jack got it first, on the Wed night he started bing sick. On Thu (when I should have been at working making up for not going in on Jack's birthday) I ended staying home because Mark was feeling rotten and there was no way he could have looked after the kids, esp Jack with still being sick, and had started at the other end too. After the weekend Jack & Mark started to get better, but on Tue (again, working to make up for the day I had missed TWICE) I wound up having to come home half way through the day and go to bed I was so ill. I pretty much stayed there until Thu afternoon. By then Tom was getting ill too, and thrn Mark got hit a second time! We should have been other to see my father-in-law that weekend too because it was his 60th..... but we missed it and were pretty gutted by it too.

Following weekend we made up for it by getting over the hills. It was Alex's party too so we had Sat at my mothter-in-laws with all the kiddies (all 6 boys and Meggie) and Sun with my father-in-law and family. And I wound up missing another day of work..... Not good.

This week my dad's been over from France so we've seen a bit of him too. Yesterday (sadly while Mark was at work) we took the kids to Southport Sands. It's the first time Tom's been to the beach, 2nd time for Jack. They had a lovely time splashing in the sea and building sandcastles. Tom tried to eat a fist full of sand, and desided that it's not that tasty after all.

This weekend is Easter Weekend so we're off to my mum's. She's planned an easter egg hunt round the house and garden for the kiddies which should be tons of fun! I'll try to get some photos if I can, but my camera's a bit bust (the LCD has broken and I have no other view finder).

Work's starting to improve a bit too. Good news in that the boss begged me stay and has given me a nice office job with the hours and days I want, with the promise of commision on top of my wages (which I'll believe when I get it, but hey). Bad news is that he has moved me from my nice spot upstairs with Chang and the rest of Ops and IT and sat me with Accounts - right out side HIS office! Argh! Still, Tamlyn and Micheal are nice enough and there's nothing stopping me going up to Ops for lunch :o)

I'll try to write this a bit more often...

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…
