Blackpool Zoo!

(Happy Birthday Mum!)

As part of the kids birthdays my mum gives us some cash for a day out. Today we used Jack's money for a trip to Blackpool Zoo! He chose this zoo because it has elephants and that's what he really wanted to see.

We had a full day there, arriving just after opening and not leaving till almost losing time. And for the most part the kids behaved. There have been a few whingy whiney moments when I think they were simply tired from walking, and hot (coz it really was hot! I have a horrible sun burn!) but we got round everything and had a good time.

The kids loved the big cats, elephants, giraffes, zebra, and penguins the best. I look LOADS of photos, and more video footage than I can put in a single youtube video, but if even with that warning you fancy a look, you can here:

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…
