Tom's Birthday - part 2

Tom's big family part at my mums house went really really well. I am SO happy! It could have gone horribly wrong as both my mother-in-law and my father-in-law and family were in attendance... and there are issues there. BUT everyone behaved them selves, and (since my mum has a lovely big house with plenty of room) the two factions stayed in different room out of each others way while the rest of us milled happily between the two.

It was all very diplomatic! :oD

Tom got some lovely presents, cars and book and toys. All the things he really enjoys. Not to mention the BIG bags of choccy buttons! My mum and John know how to look after people too, there was loads of yummy food and plenty of drinks and things.

Some of Johns family where there too; his aunt Joan, Joanne one of his daughters, her partner and their daughter Elissa.

We have lovely weather too (good job coz it's raining hard today) so the kiddies could play out side, mainly Jack, Meggie and Elissa. Tom and Ben are too little :oD

I am a little sad that some people couldn't make it. Rachel, Garry and the kids were on holiday, so were Antoni, Hadil and Rommy, and my dad & Fay couldn't make it either (actually, dad didn't want to come to a do at my mums.... very annoying!) and I am really cross with myself for not getting round to taking any photos, but other people did so I'll pinch those!

Next.... a trip to the zoo!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
