Going AWOL!

Christmas is so very very near! And I am no where near ready! The tree only went up last weekend, I've left Hubby to do most of the shopping for presents and the wrapping (luckily most of the people we buy for are his family so he knows better than me what to get anyway). I've not been feeling very festive. I think the hassle with the car getting smashed has affected me more than I thought to start with. I've been stressing about that instead of tinsel and gift wrap.

I am so very very tired too. The kids have had coughs and cold, I've caught it too, and so has the Hubby. They've been up and down all night every night so they are tired and cranky an so are we. We're falling out amongst ourselves already and school hasn't even finished for the holidays yet!

But the point of this post is to say that with the festive season upon us, and visits with family and friends taking up the vast majority of our time for the next week or two, I am likely not going to be blogging so much this side of Christmas! I have a few posts lined up on my main blog and I might pop on here with a weight loss post, but that's about it.

So in case I don't see you online before.... .

MERRY CHRISTMAS 

to all of you!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

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…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
