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.

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 on

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.
