The New Routine

It seems to be taking the family a while to settle in to my return to work.

The family. Not me.

Georgie is suddenly unsettled at bed time. He's crying every time he's put down in is bed, crying in the night, and will only be settled by me. Tom has started wanting more and more snuggles too, I think he got used to me being home again. And Jack is pushing and pushing his boundaries (although that's his age, not me being back at work).

But some else who "should" be ok but isn't is my dear dear hubby!

3 days I've been at work. 1 of those days my mum had the kids. So he's had the kids for two days, one Friday and one Monday. He has panicked, fretted, tantrumed, and not got a fraction of the daily housework done. The place is a bigger mess than usual and I think he's planning on selling the kids in to slavery - along with the cat - if they upset him any more. Safe to say he's not cut out to be a stay at home dad now we have 3 to worry about! He was late for the school run too, poor Jack.

It makes me laugh. It's the stuff that I've been doing all day every day for the last 9 months, and he can't cope with two days, two days there weren't even back to back!

But I wish Georgie wasn't so unsettled.

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…
