Horrible flipping cold

Urgh, we all got this nasty cold, apart from Tom who is thankfully snot free. It's a really nasty one too, snotty n stuffy, head aches, sore throat, cough, aching limbs.... It's almost like flu. And because I'm pregnant I can't do my normal dose-up n carry-on, and because the kids are home I can't go to bed and sleep it off. So I am sat here suffering, being no fun for the kids who still want to play, and not getting better any quicker.

And to add to it the weather is nasty too. It's cold, wet and windy. Not fit for the kids to play out in and they are going loopy stuck at home with just me and the telly for company.

Dragged the boys round town for a bit this morning but Jack was in paddy mode so that was no fun for anyone. And because it was so stressful I wound up forgetting to buy a birthday pres and card for the kiddy whose party Jack is going to on Friday. That means we need another shopping trip before Fri... Oh joy.

I really need to sleep. Not just early to bed and a lie in, I need to sleep for at least a day and a night but I can't :'(

I hate colds in pregnancy.

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…
