Dreaming of writing...

They say everyone has a book in them. I think that's true. More than one in most people's cases, but how many I us have the time to do it?

I certainly DON'T have the time right now, but I'd still like to give it a go. And I'm not on my own. My Mum fancies in on it! And that is an idea that excites me! The thing is that me and my Mum have very little in common. We are very different people with very different interests. She's practical, well read, deeply interested in history. I'm creative, but flighty and find I hard to retain knowledge that doesn't thrill me. But we do have one thing in common which always gets us laughing and giggling like school girls who found a bottle of wine. Our ex partners!

For her it's my Dad, and the rediculas way he behaved through out their marriage with multiple mistresses. Follow that with the insane way he handled the divorce, and his continued bizarre behaviour once my Mum started to move on with her life.

For me it's the ex fiancΓ©e ( from my pre-blogging days ) and his delightful timing for "outing" himself before embarking on a career as part of a sequinned song & dance troop on national television.

Think we have some reasonable material? The thought of working on this with my Mum excites me. I've wanted to write a book for years - since my teens if I'm honest. But I've always been put off by the pressures of trying to get published. Whoohoo for eBooks and self publishing! We don't need to make a fortune, we just want to have some fun and share our stories. I know there will be some very cringe worthy moments for both of us, but I think it will worth it! The very thought of having a fun project TO DO WITH MY MUM thrills me! I just need to work out how we're going fit the story planning and writing in around our lives....

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…
