11 Months Today



Aww! My baby Tom witll be 1 year old a month today! I CANNOT believe how fast this last year as gone. Year and 1 day ago I made a couple of posts: Mark managed to lose Splodge I during a trip round town with Jack when he was still in the pram. I was counting own 35 days to due date in a fairly happy and relaxed attitude ( for once not grumbling about the GD clinic)

I took the boys shopping to Preston over the weekend to buy Tom's birthday presents. It's a lot easier now to buy him things than it was at Christmas. He's showing more interest in stuff now! He loves Waybuloo, and Tinga Tinga Tales so that was easy, a Yojojo and a Monkey from those shows respectively. He is quite taken with the new Weebles toys too, so a  Tree House (Tom haulled that off the shelf by himself, so I'm guessing he really liked it) and Plane found thier way into the trolly. 



But the best on has to be.... the Play House! At a fab £50! Less than half what I thought I'd have to pay. And both boys like it too. There was one up for display in the store and Tom was bouncing around in the trolly making a grab for it, Jack was playing in side it, and at the price I couldn't walk past it. 


Getting it in the car to bring it home was interesting though! It had to be unpacked from it's box, Jack had to sit in the front seat (good job Daddy wasn't with us) and Tom had to be packed around very carefully. I drove home at 60mph on the M6, scared to death of having an accident with the heavily loaded car, stupid high winds, limited visability (no view out of back window at all) and unhappy about how the kids were sat - even though they were safe I was still worried. And now I have to store it for a month before Tom's birthday.... it's sat on the landing at the moment but it can't stay there. We can't close the bathroom door, and there is a good chance it could topple over ans squash one of us!

It'll be worth it though. They both really enjoy playing in the garden (which reminds me, I need to call the Council to see about removing the old freezer which is sat - rusting - exactly where I want to build the play house) and it'll be good to have a big toy to play with.

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…
