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!!!

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…
