Blood test results!

I've been so crazy busy at work today, with making training videos and helping to pack for our office move next week, on top of my own jobs, that I almost forgot about ringing up for my blood test results! It's only when my friend in sales asked if I was pregnant yet (she knows we're trying, not calling me fat!) I dashed off to make the call, hastily explaining about the blood test on the way.

The system is you call and the receptionist gives you the results, but because of confidentially they don't get all the nitty gritty. This makes understanding your results a little tricky! She read them out to me: "no further action needed". And that's it, that's all she had! I quizzed her a bit, hoping she might be able to shed some light on it if she knew what the test was, but she was none the wiser. She offered to book me an appointment with the doctor, but that was all she could do. Such a silly system!     I appreciate that it's not practical to have doctors take these calls, and that appointments aren't always necessary for results, and that its not down to a receptionist to know all the medical ins and outs..... But a vague answer is just so frustrating!

I opted not to book an appointment just yet. "No further action" suggests that my blood tests came up as normal for a 21 day progesterone test. On that basis I shall assume that I have ovulated this cycle and that at some point in the next couple of weeks I'll either get a visit from Aunt Flow or (eek!) I'll get a BFP. If not..... Well I can always call up and get an appointment.

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…
