And it went ok to be fair. I was in and out under an hour today but I think that's only because I'd brought Tom with me. Mark was going to look after both boys, but Jack had his pre-school booster jabs today - right in the middle of my clinic - and Mark didn't fancy his chances of keeping a good watch on Tom while Jack was getting needled! So he took Jack and Tom came with me. No one in clinic liked the idea of having a board and stroppy toddler hanging around so we were rushed through (even though Tom was as good as gold). We were even in town in time for me to take Jack for his jabs!!! Brave little feller didn't even flinch. *pride*
But I'm getting off the subject.
My blood sugars are fine. Smudges growth is fine. Everyone is happy. Even Ms Chari was civil - almost polite! And they don't want to see me again until I'm at my 3rd tri for a growth scan and follow up GD clinic - unless my BGL's start to go up (so I do need to check them) in which case I am to call up and book myself in.

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…
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…
