The Felt Butty!

This week we've been putting some more work into Jack's play-food lunch box!

The felt sandwich is finished! Jack found this a bit tricky, I think we aimed a little high with this idea because it took a long time and Jack lost interest quite quickly. But he gave the sewing a good try and really enjoyed stuffing the shapes with cotton wool! I think

George was most impressed with it though because he's been playing with it for ages, taking it apart, pretending to eat it, and putting it back together again. I think I might make some more of these just for him to play with!

We've made a start on the lunch box, which is a soap power box that we covered in aper and glue so we can paint it next week. It's just the right size for the sandwich and other things we want to pop in there.

The paper and glue was something of a theme this week with a chicken drumstick & apple made of foil & wrapped in papier mache, and carton of fruit juice getting washed out taped up and covered too. They are now drying out so that they can be painted! Jack's really looking forward to that!

NEXT! I think Jack needs to focus on some of the reading and writing tasks next, as well and painting our fake-food. We still have our paint/glue/food mixes to make! Gooey gooey messy fun!!!!!!

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…
