8-DPO and tapping my foot

According to Fertility Friend I am now 8dpo (days past ovulation) so that puts me half way through my two week wait.

It's impossible for me to not symptom spot and the chances that I have managed to get a bit of a bug off the kids is driving me crackers. I'm tired and sickly. They've been moody and off their food so I think maybe we are all just a little off colour. These summer holidays are taking it out of us all I think.

But even knowing that we're just a bit ill... there's still that little niggle that maybe... just maybe... We've caught already! (Shut up, silly girl!)

No point getting myself all stressy about it!

Tomorrow we fly to FRANCE! Just for a few days. We're going to stay with my Dad for bit. AF is due to pay a visit around Tuesday (give or take a day) and my official Testing Day isn't until a week from Saturday. I'm of two minds whether to pack a couple of my cheapo pregnancy tests as well as all my femme hygiene stuff. I probably will pack them and then not need them.

The sensible thing to do would be NOT take them!  Then I can't test too early. But I'm not always sensible when I comes to peeing on testing strips!!!

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 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

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…
