NEW CAR!

OOoooooooOoooo! I am SOOOO excited!

This is my "new" car! It's a 2008 Ford Galaxy Zetec which has been paid for with a combination of loans (hand outs) from my folks and the hard fought for (by my hubby) insurance money from the Mitsubishi. My Dad played a blinder with the negotiations and got the price down far enough for me to able to pay for the increase in my insurance, and my tax disk out of my change and STILL have a little left over to stash away for any future repairs / next years insurance.

I've done my research I think that no matter how much I love the VW Caravelle they are beyond my price range, so the Galaxy (as a close second choice) is the car for us!

It has 7 seats and still enough boot space for my pram and shopping with all the seats up, which equates to a reasonable amount of crumple-zone should anyone else run into the back of me when I have a car full of kids! The back row of seats are proper seats, not little uncomfortable flappy efforts which makes me happier too. That was my main reason for choosing this type of car.

Most of the time I wont be using the 3rd row anyway. Only once baby is here and then only if all 6 of us go somewhere which doesn't often happen. Only in the holidays and occasional weekend. From September Tom will be at school full time same as Jack so Mon-Fri I'll only have 2 kids to ferry about.  But it's great to know that when we DO all go on a day trip or holiday together then there is a PROPER SEAT for everyone, compatible with the children's car seats, AND STILL room in the boot for all the junk we cart around with us too.

I'll be picking it up tomorrow..... I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right.

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
