All About Jack! (6th Birthday Weekend)

Wow.... Our Jack is 6 years old!

This really shouldn't come as any great surprise to us, he does have two younger brothers after all, and a new sibling on the way in anything up to 21 weeks time. But we're still in a bit of a daze.... Our Baby, our 1st baby, is 6! Where have the last 6 years gone?

I HAD to brag on Facebook! This is the picture I posted on Friday for his birthday. Such a handsome lad!

It's been a busy birthday weekend for our Big Lad. Largely filled with pizza!!! He chose what we had for dinner; take-away pizza from the family favourite pizza place (Starvin Marvin's if you want to know). 

Saturday he came shopping with me to spend some of his birthday money. He bought a DS game. Then he had the pick of what we did as a family. He chose lunch at The Station in Morecambe (he had pizza again), and a long play at their Wacky Warehouse. 

On Sunday he had his Jujitsu grading with Activ8 Self Defence - which he passed and is now the proud owner of an Orange Belt - and then I took him out for lunch at Subway. He chose the Pizziola, virtually a pizza sub! I can't help thinking that it's a good job my eldest son has so much energy and sends so much time running around, or else he would never burn off all this pizza! But he does, and after all, it's only his birthday once a year. If I can't spoil him rotten on his birthday then there's no point him having one!

He says he had a great birthday though. And that's what really matters. As I tucked him into bed one night over the weekend he said you me "You know what Mummy, I'm 6 now, and that means I'm nearly 10!" I smiled and gave him a hug. Inside a little bit of me sank and I thought "yes, and than you'll be 16, 18, 20odd, all grown up and moved out. I'll be happy for you and proud of you, love you always, and dearly miss this little boy who still calls me mummy and wraps his arms round my neck at bedtime for a cuddle and a kiss".

But for now I still have my little boy - 3 of them and a bump - I'm determined to enjoy every second of it!


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. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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!
