Why I'm taking part in Movember 2013!

I have joined this years Movember Campaign, and I'd like to invite you to join me!

Why? Well, I'm very lucky that I am not posting this because someone I love has suffered or been lost die to Mens Health Issues. But I do have a lot of men in my life that I love and care about ( no, not like that!!! Cheeky! ) like my 3 lovely sons, my hubby and my dad to mention just the obvious. Then there's my extended family, my step-families, and my in-laws, my friends. And when you think that 1 in 8 men with suffer prostate cancer, boys as young as 15 are being diagnosed with testicular cancer, and 1 in 4 people (men and women) are suffering with mental health issues ... Well I'm not going to wait until someone I love is ill before I start to care.

We all know men are RUBBISH when it comes to going to the doctors. My Hubby will complain for months on end before I drag him kicking and screaming in to the doctors. So far we've been very lucky. By raising awareness with Movember men will hopefully see that there are things they need to get checked out, and the sooner the better. And that going to see a doctor or other health professional isn't any kind of weakness. It is, in fact, as manly as can be!

So, what do you say? Are you in?

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…
