Lac de Barterand

Easily the worth thing to happen this holiday was Jack getting over excited and giddy in the house. He ran across the run, straight across a giant floor cushion (that he'd been told not to tread on), slipped, and smacked his face off the wooden leg of a chair splitting his cheek open. That's why he has a HUGE plaster on his face for the rest of the holiday.

Still, it didn't slow him down any and he just carried on having fun!

This is another lake local to my Dad's house. It's Lac de Barterand

You pay to go on this one but it is beautifully clean and manned with a life guard. There's a cafe/bar there too. 

The kids LOVED this one because it was much shallower and had proper steps and a ladder to ease you into the water. They were sad that we didn't see any fish this time though. Ans it was scorching hot so we only stayed a couple of hour. This time Papee went in the water too (although he did have to nip home to get his swimming gear because he's forgotten it!)

The rest of the day we relaxed at Mamee & Papee's house, swimming in the pool, playing with Scraps (the new baby bunny) and just enjoying the sunshine each others company.

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…
