First Gi

Awwww....! Look at him! It's he cute?

Hahaha, he'll hate me for that when he's older. But I can't help it, he's my biggest little man and I adore him.

In case you haven't guessed already, this is our Big Lad Jack in his brand new Gi. His first one. It's a tad on the big side but his Sensei said he could just roll them up for now. It's supposed to do him till he's about 10yo I think. I really hope he's still into Jujitsu when he's ten.

He's been taking lesson after school with activ8 for the last few months and seems to be really enjoying it. He's always excited on Tuesdays because that's Jujitsu day. He comes bouncing out after his lesson and is grinning from ear to ear every week.

He couldn't wait to get home and try his Gi on to show his dad and brothers. After I took his photo he wanted to keep it on, but the thought of spilling anything down it had him whipping it off and asking me to put it away tidy for him :D Shortly after I heard him saying to Tom that when he was older and in school like him, he could do Jujitsu with him and wear a Gi too. Tom looked awestruck!

Next month Jack goes for his first Grading. He's totally relaxed about it, I'm the nervous one! You can bet there'll be a post about that!

The people from Activ8 are fab. I highly recommend them. They're only quite local (or so I believe) but if you are in the UK and around the Preston - Lancaster area give them I look. http://www.activ8selfdefence.com/

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'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…

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
