Cinema - Again! Lego Movie - Again! AWESOME!

We've been to see the Lego Movie for a second time...... It's Jack's (belated) birthday treat that he chose instead of having a party. But with my work hours, his jujitsu class after school, other parents schedules, going away for the wedding etc it's taken this long to get round to going.

I took Jack & Tom. Georgie and Mark once again stayed at home. We picked up Jack's friend - also called Jack - and his mum from down the hill, and met Orrin and his dad in town. Orrin's family are in the process of moving so his dad stopped for a bit then had to dash off and get stuff done. We went to McDonalds and fed their faces, then popped into the pound shop for some sweeties and fruit-shoots (sooo much better value for money that cinema pic-n-mix and cup drinks).

We had a great time in the cinema though, kids sat through the film good as gold even though they'd all but one already seen it. They were high as kites by the time we came out though (all the pound shop sweets and junk food lunch probably) so we let them run round the square for a while to burn it off before piling the lot of them into my car (so nice having a 7 seater now) and I dropped everyone home.

They all had a fab time and vowed to do it all again soon. Tom wants to go and see How To Train Your Dragon 2 for his birthday - but that's not one until 6 weeks after his birthday. BUT! We will find a movie to watch, and I might just have to arrange another mass cinema outting when Dragon 2 comes out in July!

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 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

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.
