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..................................................

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…
