Can you tell what it is yet?

 We've been busy! But it's no where near finished yet....

Breakfast


So far we have our banana, but it still needs painting. We made it from tin foil scrunched into a banana shape, and then covered in payer of papier mache.

We've also made a start on our bowl of cereal by covering a foil pie tin in papier mache then part filling it with cotton wool. We're going to paint that and then top it with cereal and fake milk (glue and paint).

Lunch


We've also started our felt sandwich with two slices of bread made out of felt stuffed with cotton wool. We're going to add felt ham slices, felt lettuces leaves and cotton wool stuffed tomato slices. I found some Velcro dots in my sewing box what we can add to help keep it all together.

Jack's isn't too hot on sewing. He gave it a try but it was too fiddly for him. He has loved stuffing the shapes though!

We're also going to add a carton of juice, and apple and some cheese, but we haven't started them yet.

Dinner


We've not started the chicken or pasta yet but I think we'll probably use the same idea, paper covered foil chicken drumstick shape, and pasta in red paint & glue mix.

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…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
