The Lego Movie!

Yesterday I took Jack & Tom to see the Lego Movie in 3D! 

Poor hubby was gutted to be left out of this little trip but Georgie is too young and someone had to stay home with him (sorry, Hubs, we'll get it on DVD so you can watch it too!)

To be honest I was dreading this. Jack had only been to the cinema once and that was with school. Tom has never been before. I was worried about them messing about, chattering, running around..... I had promised the boys this trip out some weeks ago but that was before I got ill and now that I am poorly I was more worried than ever about going alone with them. BUT this was the only chance I was going to have to take them so I dosed up and set off with them on the bus for a Sunday Adventure!

We made an afternoon of it, the bus meant that we were in town almost an hour before the movie started (Sunday buses are one a hour so it was over early, or miss the start), I treated the kids to a McDonald's lunch where they got a Lego Movie 3D cup as their Happy Meal toy which they were thrilled about, and I promise to fill with popcorn for them for the movie. They got Metal Beard, and some discount vouchers which we can use at Legoland Discovery in Manchester next time we go! Winner!

So piled up with sweets, popcorn, drinks and our 3D glasses we settled down to our movie.... I was mentally steeling myself for reigning in bored kids hyped up on sugar and E numbers and fully expecting to have to leave for at least one toilet break if not leave early all together........

I couldn't have been more wrong! The kids were glued to their seats and the silver screen! They loved the movie! I loved the movie! We laughed, we sang ("Everything is awesoooooooome!"), we had a flipping MARVELLOUS time!

And yes, we WILL be buying it on DVD!

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!
