Stressful money & work stuff

Urgh... Less then happy day today. MH C&R think I owe them £1200 for self assessment penalties. But I can't get through on the phone! Nice manager lady said I could call from work (instead of run up a huge bill waiting at home while I have the kids screaming mummymummymummy coz I've dared to pick up the phone and look serious). Am sending them a letter instead and hope I get a reply soon. Otherwise I'll have to pitch up at the local office - in the town hall - with kids in tow. Pretty sure I don't owe anything......... but it's not impossible that I've fecked up somewhere. A little worried. I'd have to make MANY SMALL repayments and I just don't want it hanging over my head.

On top of that the Boss wanted to talk to me about those meetings from Friday. Did I think it was really as bad and the Ops Manager had said? Frankly, yes. So then he had a huge off loading session and I'm sat there - again - listening to it all. Mind you, I'm one of the longest serving (surviving) members of staff so I know a lot of what's happened to bring people to this point, and I've worked all departments. It's kind of nice that the MD feels like he can talk to me, a mere underling ;) but at the same time..... I just want to NOT be a part of other peoples stress at work!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
