Flibble...

I think I am losing my marbles a little... I am so absent minded right now! Hubby is putting down to a double dose of hormones (with me having the last week on both Pill & Implant), and I'm hoping he's right because that should settle down soon. But I'm horrifically forgetful too at the moment. Last week I forgot to make a packed lunch for Jack to take to school and had to scrabble round for £2 to buy him a school dinner. Today I totally forgot to meet up with another mum on the school run - something I do EVERY Tuesday - and she came round for us when we didn't show only to be told we'd gone. It didn't even click when she arrived at school, I just called out a cheery "hello".... She must think I'm so rude or ignorant :(

And this isn't all. I'm also in a "can't be arsed" mood. I think a lot of that is because we are STILL waiting for hubby to finish the bathroom. I'm not being critical of him, I know he's doing his best, but a couple of hours a day after work is making for a long, slow job. Not being able to have a bath for this long is wearing me down. but more than that, having my kitchen, landing, bedroom and bathroom all be taken over by building supplies and tools is hard work. I have no clean tidy space to relax. I cant get round anywhere to clean properly, so I'm losing motivation to clean at all. Having no space indoors to hang my non-drier-safe laundry (what with the weather being so unpredictable) means that laundry is backing up too. I'm only washing stuff that I can shove in the drier and a handful of essential drip-dry stuff like school & work uniforms.

Money is tight right now too. The bathroom is costing us, we still have Tom's birthday to sort (just the party to pay for really, but it's still money), last payment for our summer holiday to go out next month, and now there's this HM R&C thing hanging over me too.

Not to mention that work stuff.

Maybe I'm a touch depressed as well as hormonal?  Urgh.......!

I'll try to be a bot more upbeat in my next post! Everyone needs to moan now and then though ;)

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…
