Back to work tomorrow

Seems like no time since I packed up my desk to start maternity leave. I'm back to work tomorrow. Got my box of stuff packed (including photo of kids, kidston mug & tea pot, and my breast pump!) Just have to add my lunch in the morning.

I've spent the day cleaning up. Kitchen & bathroom are fit (enough) for my mum coming over to childmind. Hubby & eldests uniforms are washed. Since its Twelth Night hubby has taken the tree and decs down. It's all very sobering.

While in looking forward to being around adults again I am going to miss my kids terribly. I've never been apart from George for more than 3hrs and its going to be hard leaving with Jack - who I am dropping off at school - in the morning. Mascara might be a bad idea...

But its not like I haven't done this 'first day back' thing before. It's no easier 3rd time round, but I do know everything will be ok. It still makes me sad though. I was fine until today and now it seems real I'm a little less than fine.

Oh hum.

I'll be home before 6pm. I get an hour with them all before bed.

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…
