Christmas 2011 & New Year

:oD It has been lovely, the kids have loved it! Ok, so there has been some illness (Tom still suffering tail end of what ever that bug was so either in with us at night or screaming his head off, me being sick xmas morn, then both Jenny & Ash coming down with some gastric yuck between xmas & nye) but generally it has been fun!

Christmas eve and morning with my Mum, then the drive over to Yorkshire for dinner with Jenny & Ash, buffet tea at Dave & Dee's with their kids, boxing day at Rachel & Garry's with their kids, Bob, Rach & Ben, Kate & David, and Clare with her feller (Meggie was with her dad)... we called in on folks again through the week and chucked in a trip to Rother Valley County Park, and a Brewers Fare (for the play area and yummy coffee), before heading back to mums for one more night and home for New Years Eve...

I'm shattered after all the driving, but its always wonderful to see the family and I'm always sad to come home afterwards. Next big do's: Baby Smudge arriving this Spring, and Jenny & Ash's wedding this Summer! I think 2012 will be a good one for us all :0D

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…
