It goes with out saying that we now have enough chocolate in this house to last until Christmas - even with me and Tom as certified choc-o-holics!

We went to stay with my mum over easter. She put on an easter egg hunt round her house for the kids to find choccy eggs.

The weather was amazing so we had a day up at Towneley Park & Hall - where Jack took his trike and had his face painted, and a day at the local play ground on Park Road - where Tom fell alseep in the roundabout/nest thingy.

We even got the paddling pool up on Nana's back lawn and had a water fight!

It' a good job the weather was nice too, as Tom was pretty unsettled at night (even though he was in the same bed, in the same room, with the same toys as he usually is when he sleeps fine) and wound up in bed with me every night we were there. So not much sleep for mummy, but the sunshine and fresh air made up for it!

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…
