Being a Baaaaad Mummy!

It's Saturday! I should be taking the kids out on some amazing adventure somewhere exciting!

But I'm not! 

We're staying in today. And while I tap away on here, my youngest is in bed napping and the other two are playing computer games. Tom isn't even wearing any undies... he decided that potty training without them is easier. I didn't feel like arguing over the matter today.

Shocking! Go ahead, call social services!

Thing is, it's a horrible, cold, wet Saturday and totally NOT suitable for an outside adventure when you have a 13m baby. And I have about £2 until Monday since I have gone way over budget this month on birthday presents (mainly for Tom next month) and treats for my boys (although they LOVE their Skylanders PJs and their new books) so an indoor play area is out too.

So this is the plan for today..... they get a bit of FreePlay in the house while I catch up on my blog reading and posting - they can do anything they want so long as they don't hurt anyone or break anything or scream so loud my ears bleed! Then, when I'm done, I'll join in their computer game for a bit. They love that! We'll have a picnic in the livingroom with a movie on Netflix for lunch, and I have a stash of Moshi Monsters baking stuff I have been saving for a rainy day such as today. Not 'proper baking' but they have a low attention span when it comes to mixing so stuff out of a box is ideal for now. That should take care of a nice chunk of the afternoon! After that... Well I'm not sure yet. I'll ask what they fancy doing, but I dread doing that on a day like today because they always want something I simply can't give them.

I doubt they'll want to help me sort out the 3 meter high laundry mountain I have to sort out :o/

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…
