I don't hate Mondays!

I really don't. I quite like them.

By Monday I'm glad to see the back of my little Angels for just a few hours after they have driven me crackers all weekend. Within half an hour of being parted from them I miss them like crazy it's true... but weekends can be hard with my lot since there is such an ability gap between my 5yo and my 1yo. Finding something suitable and affordable for us all, which also holds their attention for longer than 30 seconds... not easy!

Monday means SCHOOL for my eldest! He loves school, school loves him. From September it will mean proper nursery for our 3yo too (not just once a week). They are always bursting to go and learn, see their friends, play games, and be away from home for a bit (same as me I guess).

Monday also means work for me. And I like my job! Honestly I do! The folk in my office are lovely, I have a role there that I like and seem to be quite good at too. There's nothing very stressy about it. It's peaceful (compared to home), there's always a cup of tea and some biscuits to be had, no one follows you too the loo and shouts "mummy mummy mummy" though the door, no one paws at you with sticky hand, or disconnects the phoneline when you're on an important call...... FAB!

Monday is also Quick Tea day! Mainly because I cook when I get in from work about 5.30pm and - as much as I like my job - I'm usually too tired to making anything fancy. So it'll be sausages, or fish fingers, or (if I've been uber organised over the weekend and cooked an extra meal) a lasagne or pasta bake. Sometimes I just say "the hell with it!" and pick up Fish & Chips on the way home!

So I ask you, what's NOT to like about Mondays?

Or am I alone on this one :0\

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
