Easter!

No way I was going to just sit at home all day today... Not with the induction looming and the kids full of chocolate and sweets. So we went to Happy Mount Park.
It's not been the warmest or driest of days, but we've had luck on our side. We got good free parking, avoided the rain save for a little drizzle, and since the big easter 'do' was yesterday it wasn't over crowded either! Playland opened again this weekend so the boys got to play on the cars and bikes again too, as well.as have a ride on the train and a mad half hour in the Pirates In The Park indoor play.
We had a small picnic while we were there and the kids had a good 3+ hours running about like loons before heading home so Tom could have a nap and Jack got a couple of.hours on the Wii with Mark. I did the roast! Mmmm... Lamb! And it was good too. Even the kids scoffed the lot (although they were on the promise of more easter eggs if they ate up).
Now we're settled in watching the end of Toy Story before bed :)
Nice Easter <3

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
