Wet weekend

Having the scan on Monday means the weekend is dragging. We should have been going to visit bro-in-law and family but hubby decided we couldn't afford the trip in the end (would have cost near on £200 to be fair with petrol, hotel, meals etc) which leaves me at a loose end. And the weather is nasty so going to the park is out of the question.
Soooo we've been baking! Quick trip to Asda this morning for some extra butter, ground ginger, and writing icing, and maybe a lunch in the cafe (shh!), then home for a flurry of flour and brown sugar!
This is the first time I've let Tom get really hands on with the baking and he had a great time. Jack always loves baking. We've followed this: http://www.cookuk.co.uk/children/ginger_bread_men.htm and we have made yummy gingerbread.
Jack's had a go at decorating some of them. He's done a Jack, a Tom, a Daddy, and a Mummy complete with Baby Smudge in the tum. Very cute! Won't eat those till Mark comes home and sees them. Now both my boys are munching on their biscuits and some bananas while playing on the cbeebies website, giving me a few mins to do this blog (via my phone) before getting back to the housework.
Just need to think of something to do tomorrow...

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
