We're off on an adventure!


I am ridiculously excited about this holiday! This is the first time the five of us have been away without staying with family. I've been planning it since LAST summer, I've tried to be as organised as I possibly can be so that we can just get on and have fun. I've been watching the weather forecast for a week!

Friday morning and we got up at the normal school time and I rushed around making sure everything was checked off the list, packed up the car.... And still had 3 hrs before we were due to set off. Whoops...! Still, plenty of time to get the kids bathed and have a bit of lunch, triple check everyone has been to the toilet before we set off. 

It's a 3 hour drive to our holiday, but it took 4. Damn the M6 and its pointless speed restrictions! To be fair to the kids they were ok for the vast majority of the drive. The got restless and giddy for the last half hour or so. But when we actually arrived it was like someone had shoved rockets put their backsides! They went loopy! 


Our "Little house" as the kids call it, is purple! Tom wanted a pink one but settled for this as his next best colour, hee hee! It's basic but ok. We wouldn't want anything posh with our lot anyway. We unpacked and went for a walk before having a late dinner and trying to get the kids settled into bed (not an easy task this night, believe me!)


It's as beautiful as ever here, and we were welcomed with clear blue skies. Looking forward to some adventuring in the morning.

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…
