Jack's first proper day at nursery

I dropped Jack off at Nursery yesterday at 9.30. When we got there he charged off and I had to grab him and scoop him up for a hug-n-kiss good bye. He was far too interested in playing with his friends to say bye properly. I checked in with his group leader, took a last look at him, and left.

It was odd. I thought maybe I would cry - especially in my over emotional hormonal state - but I didn't. But I know why. Nursery is the best thing to happen to Jack. He should have been there last term. He needs it. He likes it. He is a perfectly confident little feller and I knew he would be completely happy there with or with out me. I did feel strange walking back up the hill with out him... like I'd forgotten something!

Nursery gave me a call at lunch time to say he was fine, no problems, and I was to pick him up at the end of the day. If he'd been distressed they would have had me fetch him then n there.

I went with Mum & Tom to fetch Jack at the end of the day. As soon as Jack saw me (he had been playing with lego and helping Stacie - his leader  - to tidy up) he leaped up, shouted "Mummy!!!" and threw himself into my arms.  Then shot off again, all giddy. I spoke to his leader who said he's had a really good day, but 2 changes of trousers. Not because he's wet himself (he had been clean and dry all day in that respect), but because he'd been playing out side in the mud and the wet and got soaked... Twice! So I had a load of washing to do and return! I see this being a recurring theme....

All the way home Jack told me about his day. I didn't catch most of it but it sounds like he had fun. The best bit was story time with the "big big book". I was a bit worried when he said he'd "pushed the boy over" but when he followed that with "and I pushed the animals over too" we established it was lego or the toy farm he was talking about, not a class mate! He also told me the tooth brush I'd sent down with him but which had not returned, was still at Nursery, somewhere it is supposed to be (didn't catch where) with his name on it.

Once we were home and I was starting to put our tea together in the kitchen I heard Jack say "I was a bit sad in nursery today when you weren't there mummy..." to which I responded "Where you darling?" and then Jack said "but then I was OK." "Oh good, that's nice!" I replied.

I think Nursery was a roaring success!!!

Meantime, I had been at home (I should have been at work for 4hrs but I'm not well at all right now) with Tom and my mum. Tom had a smashing time having 100% of both Mummy's and Nana's time. I thought he might have missed his big brother and been looking for him, but I think the novelty of having all the toys and attention purely for him was just too good to miss for even a second!

All in all (sickness and tiredness aside) it was a smashing day!

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…
