10 things to be Thankful For!

I saw this over on a bloggy friends post (check it out and link up) and thought it was a lovely idea to keep my mood up with the whole TTC thing. So here we go, in no particular order, 10 things to be thankful for:


  1. There is a good chance that we know what our Secondary Fertility is caused by, and fixing it should be simple once we get to the clinic
  2. Our doctor is very understanding and is really trying hard to help us get to the clinic
  3. According to my blood tests, my body is TRYING to do what it should
  4. Hubby's sample has come back normal!
  5. This cycle seems more normal than the previous few - still long but a more normal pattern (thanks to Angus Castus supplements?)
  6. I got Crosshairs on my Fertility Friend chart this week (suggesting I might have actually ovulated this cycle) they moved today and gave me a score of "low" instead of "good", but a score is still a score!
  7. Even after 12 years together we're still into each other enough to enjoy this whole baby making process (we both come from divorced homes, this is a big deal!)
  8. I have this blog and the lovely communities on my favourite forum and G+ group to help me work through the massive changes in moods and emotions that go along with TTC
  9. There's a chance we might not have this fourth baby.... but we have 3 brilliant sons already and I am very very thankful for them
  10. My Hubby. Who tolerates a lot. It was his idea to have 4 kids in the first place, but without him to support and love me, and make me laugh when I'm feeling at my lowest, I just couldn't cope.

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…
