Visit from Cousin Harry

It's back to school today for Jack. And not a moment too soon! I love that kid sooooo much, but he needs a LOT of entertaining, and I struggle to keep up with him now I'm pregnant.

I felt a little bad about him going back today though, because today is the day that my sister-in-law Amy came to visit, with my father-in-law, his missus, and little Harry!

It's a bit cramped in our house with 3 extra adults, and even though it was just 3 kids with Tom, Georgie and Harry, it felt like more because of the excitement of visitors. We took the opportunity to head up to Giggles again for the afternoon. The kids loved it! Harry is 5-6 months younger than Georgie, but bigger so they look the same sort of age. At one point Amy was in the play area with them and someone asked her if they were twins!

Tom enjoyed being the "biggest kid" for a change too, he helped George get right to the top of the play area and wave to us from a big pod with a window in it, and played so nicely with Georgie and Harry.

They had a good afternoon, and we all had a good long catch up and a nice lunch too. I admit I drank way too much coffee (baby will be kicking like a footballer all night). They waited around for Jack to get home after Jujitsu so that he didn't miss out completely on seeing his cousin.

It was a lovely day. They're hoping to come over and do it again some time soon. I hope they can get over in the summer holidays, both sides of due date, because I know they'll want to meet new baby but I also need as much help entertaining this lot before baby arrives to! Haahaa!

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…
