Count down to trying for baby 4: Clutter!

Eeeeek! Only 5 weeks if the pill left!

You know, as I'm sat here near the end if the day (as far as the kids are concerned), looking at the crazy mess they have made and the tiny amount of space we have, I find my self thinking about chucking a lot of stuff out! And getting better storage for the stuff we have. Not more storage because I've run out of room to PUT more storage. Better stuff. No idea what though.

And what exactly to I get rid off? With plans for another baby next year there's no point getting rid of baby stuff we will only wind up buying again! And everything the boys have comes in handy for the younger boys. They all play with everything...! Cars, trains, super heros, knights, building blocks, books, colouring and crafting stuff.... There's tons of it but it all gets used!

I feel like I am drowning in toys and books and kids clothes. There is barely a surface in the house which isn't cluttered, or a floor that's free of debris, or a door handle that isn't being used as a handing rail. Every chair has stuff piled on the back of it.

I feel a bit like Waynetta Slob by the end of the day, with my hair and clothes a mess and my energy at minus five. At least I can say there isn't a thick fog of cig smoke or mountains of discarded beer cans. That's one thing in our favour.


(not actually me or the hubby!)
It's not put me off having another baby, but I do find myself looking forward to the day we CAN start ditching stuff we won't use again. Although there will be tears shed when it comes to things we've had since Jack was a baby and they've all used them.

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…
