First day back at work

It wasn't as bad as it could have been. Work it self is fine.

I hated leaving the kids though. Esp little Georgie. I knew Jack & Tom would be fine, they are both used to mummy working, but it was all new for Georgie. I held off the tears though. It's a big help that we are all used to my going out in the morning to take Jack to school, so I avoided having a crying baby as mummy walked out of the house. I just didn't come back till gone 5pm!

I only called once to check if everything was ok. And it was.

Funniest thing about the day was the look on Georgies face when he first saw me with my make up on, hair done, and glasses on... Took him a while to be convinced that this woman was still his mummy. He was all wide eyes and intrigue. He gave me the same look when I got home, until I leaned over to give him a kiss and then he KNEW I was mummy and just had to be picked up for a snuggle and cuddle. I wasn't allowed to put him own again for an hour, and even when I did get to put him down with his toys he only played for a couple of minutes before grinning at me, crawling across the room as fast as we've ever seen him move, and pull himself up on my chair for another cuddle. Then he spent the last bit of his day trying to chew my face off in that way I try to convince myself is him kissing me.

So it wasn't too bad. And I don't have to do it again till Friday.

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…
