I is NESTING!

It's been a busy weekend! Yesterday I finished vac-packing the kids clothes that fit currently fit neither of them (but will soon fit either Tom or Smudge), and I put the crib up - only to find it wont fit in our bedroom until the drawers have been moved so it's staying in the nursery for a bit. We also took delivery of our new dishwasher.

Today I've done a tip run, bought more vac-pac bags, and tried to get some of the bits Mark needs from Screwfix, only they didn't have exactly what we needed. I've emptied the drawers in our room and Mark has mended them, but they cant be moved until the filler-foam has set in the gap he found round the window........ that had better be today or we have no where to sleep! All the drawers and their contents plus the telly are on our bed! Meantime he is trying to mend the old teak drawers in Jack's room - which will soon be Jack & Tom's room so we need use of the larger set of drawers asap.

The bits from Screwfix would have had him be able to mend the bunks, but that's not happened so it could be at least another WEEK before I can get Jack in that top bunk. I really need him used to the top bunk before I move Tom out of the nursery and into the bottom bunk. I don't want to try to get them both used to so big a change at the same time because they'll wind each other up and make any problem so much worse. And I really really want them both settled before Smudge comes (due in 81 days....).

Ideally, by the end of today I want to have the crib in our room, have made a start on vac-packing the clothes me n Mark aren't using at the moment (summer stuff, my non-preg work clothes), and to know that the drawers in the boys room work (ready for some good weather when they can be sanded and oiled back to their former glory, or at least not smell musty).

Next week.... finally finish fixing those damned bunk beds!!!!!!

And then we can focus on getting ready for Mark fixing the kitchen during the Feb half term O_o

After that, it's just decorating for the foreseeable.

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…
