Tom is settled in his new bed :)

It only took a week! How impressed am I with our super boys?

Basically all I did was stick to our original bedtime routine, but putting Tom in his new bed. That way there was only the one change for him to deal with. Then just putting him back to bed, silently, each time he got up. That took 3 nights. Not bad.

Next I started to put both boys to bed at the same time, but with the same routine, and I introduced Tom to the bedtime story - which Jack has had since he moved into that room. That went well too. Tom got a little giddy but I ignored the silliness and put him back to bed. By night 5 he was used to it.

Night 6 was easy and by night 7 we'd done 3 nights in a row without Tom getting up or crying!

Sadly both kids (and me) have now come down with nasty colds complete with coughs and wallpaper paste snot, so we are having disturbed nights while they are ill but even now they aren't giving us any problems going to bed and they do stay put... They cry coz they have headaches/woke up coughing/can't breath well, but we go in to them and for the most part they settle back down.

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…
