Off an a French Adventure!

France!

Ok, not as exciting as you might imagine really, we're going to stay with my Dad and his Missus. Because of this it doesn't feel like a foreign holiday, but just feels like taking a plane to visit my Dad.

Still, the kids are excited about going on a plane again and I'm hoping that my Dad will come good on the promise of finding entertaining things for the kids to do that aren't a 3 hour drive away.

We had a bit of a flap earlier this week when Hubby twigged that Jack was 5 now, and his passport is a 5 year passport.... which we got when he was still a small baby!

A mad dash to the document wallet revealed that his passport is indeed up for renewal!

But not until next month (phew)

One serious advantage of staying with family is that we can pack light. No need to take the buggy - they have one, or tons of nappies - they've bought some in, or bags and bags of clothes - free access to a washer and drier. I can even borrow a drier and straighteners for my hair. And this is all lovely and fab and soo sooo kind! But to me and Hubby (who is feeling just the same as me and said only moments ago "Why doesn't it feel like I'm going on holiday tomorrow?") it's not a holiday. It's visiting family.

Luckily the kids take a much brighter view and are seeing it as a holiday and an adventure. Jack found a teach-your-self French game for the DS and has begged to take it with him so he can learn French on the plane ride. Tom is just giddy and fit to burst. Georgie is - again - wondering what all the fuss is about! I'm just wondering how I will cope with being near my Dad again and Hubby... He's not saying much about it at all.

So for the next few days my posts might be a bit hit-n-miss. I'll have access to his wifi but I struggle to get my iPad to do what I want with my blog sometimes.

So for now.... au revoir!

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…
