Liebster Award....

How cool is this?

The lovely Kae James over at "Where's My Pacifier" has nominated me for a Liebster Award!

Liebster Awards go to “up and coming” bloggers with less than 200 followers. The origins of this award are unclear and are simply given by fellow award nominees to blogs that inspire them and that they enjoy reading. “Liebster” means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome in German.

So, next I need to tell you 11 facts about myself, answer 11 questioned posed by my nominator Kae, nominate 11 bloggers, and ask them 11 questions. What do I want you to do?? Just check out all of the nominated blogs and follow them! Simples!

11 Things about me:

1) I'm British! A very proud Northern Lass :0D

2) I have 2 tattoos and my tongue is pierced. My kids think this is very funny!

3) I used to have purple hair

4) I am obsessed with The Sims and have spend way too much money on these games over the years.

5) Ditto with Skylanders!

6) I collect DVD box sets of shows I like coz it's cheaper than paying for a Sky subscription!

7) I dream of writing an e-book! I have already written out my story plan and characters but am too scared to start in case it's rubbish!

3) What do you say when your (or someone else’s) kid asks you why the sky is blue? That's its the way the sun shines through the atmosphere (which leads on to "what's the atmosphere...?", do my best to answer simply and truthfully)

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…
