Jack's 4th Birthday!


Jack's birthday was a very busy day!!!

Up around 6ish, presents from us, Nana & Grandad John, and Mame & Pape, then breakfast and off to nursery.

He had a little party at nursery (he and another boy called Thomas) with bread-bun pizzas! The other birthday boy brought some bread buns and tomatoes and cheese, so Jack took some more cheese and some ham & pineapple for toppings! He came home with a card from nursery and a toy from the birthday box (a jumping ladybird).

Since I was at the GD clinic for Smudge and Mark was working, my mum came over to mind the boys for the afternoon and then come to Jack's party. Jack loved "teaching" his Nana how to play Guess Who, and tried showing her how to use the Wii :D

4pm was Jack's birthday party at Pizza Hut! 8 kiddies and assorted parents: Jack & Tom, Adam & Connor, Katie, and his 3 friends from nursery Rory, Henry & Lucas. I think it's safe to say we were not the most organised party group they have ever had but with the average age of 4 what did they expect?

All the kids seemed to enjoy them selves (mainly by playing with the car park ticket machine coz they could type their names in to it!) and everyone went home happy. It wasn't even all that expensive!

Kathy came back to ours with Katie for an hour or so which was a lovely way for Jack to wind down for the evening before going up to bed a whole hour late (well, it was his birthday) and I think - all in all - it was a good day :D

We even have plenty of birthday funds left over for a trip to the zoo once Smudge arrives!

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…
