Progress :D (Jack in TOP BUNK!)

Well I can check a few more jobs off the list!

Mark finally managed to fix the bunks and Jack is in the top one now, been almost an hour and no screaming or tumbling from great heights as of yet so I'm feeling hopeful (there's even a thunderstorm rolling about but not a muff from the kids). Jack was asking for me to bring Tom in to share his room as I said night night to him :oD Think it'll be a few nights yet before I stick um both in there!



I've managed to sort the cloth nappies and vac-pac the larger ones for later. The smaller ones are in the Tidy ready to be washed closer to my due date. Really wish we could sort the big dresser in the boys room (it's musty, don't know how to shift the smell) then I could move Tom's clothes out of the nursery and in to there, but it will have to wait until the better weather I think :o( This thread gave me a few ideas to try (and a chuckle): http://do-it-yourself.tribe.net/thread/50626ea9-08e2-4016-bc76-602cb4b4f4c5

So..... The "To Do Before Smudge Arrives" List now looks like this:

Buy mattresses for crib & basket
Get Tom into Big Boys Room
Finish repair/refresh on dresser in boys room
Fix the kitchen (biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig job!)
Baby Laundry

Should be ok at that..................................................

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…
