Tom's 1st Birthday


Awwwwwww! My Wee Tomska is a whole year old today! It's gone so fast, too fast. Isn't he a cracking lad though? Almost toddling too.

He's had a fab birthday. Kathy and Jen came over for the day with their kiddies - it's half term so that made it even better. The 2 lads from across the road that are Jack's friends came over for a bit too.

Tom seems to love all his presents. We gave him the Yojojo and Tinga Monkey toys from his Mame & Pape (they gave me the cash to buy him something he wanted), he got a car & garage set from Uncle Bob, Aunty Rach and Cousin Ben, Kathy & Katie (by coincidence) bought him some cars that are from the same set. How perfect is that? Jen, Adam & Conner game him a ride-on car that he already loves shuffling about on. From us he got mostly Weebles, along with a book and  DVD. He's played with everything and loved it all.

Jack and the bigger kids spent most of the day chasing each other round and round. Tom and the younger kids played mostly in the house with Tom's cars & weebles and Jack's trains. But EVERYONE played in Tom's BIG present.... the play house!

It's been a great day though. I'm very impressed with all the kids, who behaved so well! Including my own two; Tom held his own until 2.30 when he finally started to nod off in my arms, and Jack coped amazingly well with not being the centre of attention or getting all the presents. He's getting to stay up a little late playing on the Wii with daddy as a reward.

On a personal note: The diet is totally blown for the day, an estimated 44 points (Ouch) and with Saturday at my mums likely to be another scoff-fest I think I'll be gaining a few pounds this week. Oh well.......

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…
