New Years Resolutions

I didn't make any last year.... So that bit is easy, lol!

I do have some for this year though. Lets get the usual dross out of the way first:

* Lose weight. Georgie is almost 9m old and I am still flabby n saggy. I know we want one more baby so there is little point dreaming of abs of steel etc but I'd like to drop a couple of stone (again)

* Save money for the Summer Holiday. Target is £500 plus food money. £300 stashed already

* Clear the Clutter. 5 of us and the cat in this house, one day there'll be another baby. Need to make some space!

* Start saving for the Next Big Thing: if we're going to have 4 kids one day then we need a bigger car and a bigger house ( car first while the kids are small ), can't afford either just now. Parents have offered to put in for the car. House needs doing up before I can sell it. Time to start saving. This years target: £1000+

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…
