Tom's 3rd Birthday

My Blondie is 3 today!

Cunning little fella sent his big brother in to our room at 6.15am - instead of going himself - to see if we were getting up and he could have his presents. Tom's got the hang of birthdays now. It helps that he just just seen both his brothers have their birthdays (March & April and still very fresh in his memory) and he has been counting down the sleeps for a crazy amount of time!

I would hate to disappoint any of my kids on their birthday. I think a child's birthday should be special! Me and Hubby do what we can to make it special for them. They come down in the morning to their presents arranged as nicely as we can do it, banners, balloons, and the breakfast of their choice (this year they have all chosen Cookies!). We arrange a party for them and bake or buy the cake they want. Part of their presents is always some money for a special day out to be used in the Summer Holidays.

Tom was soooo lovely opening his presents. He said his thank you's, and has played with everything. He wore some of his new clothes to his party in the afternoon. We went to Brewsers again (they LOVE it there) and he had a fab time. Isaac from nursery came, Rory & Flo, Luke & Bess, and Brodie, but poor Orrin was too poorly to come. We sent a party bag and balloon sword home with his brother so he didn't feel like he'd missed out too much. After all, the present was sent from him too! I had a surprise guest in the form of my Aunt Ellen (and her hubby & their youngest two - too old for the play zone) who called in from Scotland to see my dad and say hello to us too.

I was expecting a bit of a commotion from my Dad to be honest. Fay (his other half) had said to me a few days earlier that she wouldn't mind a chat with my Mum about my Dad to see if he really had always been as awful as he is now, or if he was worse. Had she made a rod for her own back etc. I'd mentioned it to Mum and she laughed. In her opinion YES she had set her self up for a tough time by taking up with him in the first place! But Fay had meant had she made him worse by pandering to him. The general opinion is that he is worse now than ever. But the conversation never happened. My Dad wouldn't stop hovering around and making sure that my Mum and my Step-Mum didn't get a moment to even say hello unobserved. It would be his worse nightmare that they should get along! Never mind.... It might happen one day. And as much as I am looking forward to being part of that conversation one day, I'm very very glad it didn't happen on Tom's birthday!

So

  HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLONDIE! 

It was enjoyable and thankfully uneventful, other than Georgie exploding again.... 
this time all over poor Nana! Starting to think that kid is allergic to parties :0(

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
