What's going on with the world?

It seems that every where I turn people I know and love are suffering.

I'm trying to get back in touch with a friend I haven't seen in ages, which is daft coz we live in the same town. We lost touch a while back when she kept pulling out of meeting up. I thought maybe I'd pissed her off or something after the 3rd or 4th time and left it to her to get in touch with me. Only now I hear that she has bipolar. I've umed and ahed about picking up the phone and chickened out. But tonight I was talking to a mutual friend who says she really needs us. So I've texted her and asked to meet up on Tue. No answer yet, and I'm away for the rest of the week, so I've also texted another mutual friend and put her on the case too. Hopefully something will come of it.

But it's everywhere I go. Another friend is an out patient at the local mental health unit. 2 people I know have had late (20 week plus) miscarriages. Things are bad every where I look.  Even we are having problems in our relationship (nothing I do is right and everything starts a row) which feel so much worse than the normal spats couples have.

And don't get me started on the stuff thats on the news - wars, natural disasters, etc.

My Witness friends tell me it's the coming to an end of this System (where it is the devil in control of the world, not god). There's a part of me that thinks they might be on to something.

One thing is for sure.... nearly everything is shit.

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…
