Wedding Suits

This weekend we were invited to a wedding. The beautiful bride is my Hubby's (sort of) step sister, so there was a big chunk of his side of the family there. Good times had by all, and a lovely bonus in my brother-in-law and missus staying in the same hotel as us. She's pregnant too, just 3 days ahead of us with their 2nd child.

We stayed at a Premier Inn this time over at Brighouse, Hudderfield (Hudddersfield North) and I think it's safe to say the kids and I are sold on them! Even if we did all wind up sharing a room. All 5 of us plus bump (the kids are no where near old enough to be in a room without us yet). Luckily the room was MASSIVE being a proper family room. And the breakfast was excellent too. There was no need to go and hunt down any lunch afterwards!

My mother-in-law had bought suits for my boys and had them sent over to us. I must get the website link to share with you. The lads looked adorable! It's such a shame they wont get another chance to wear them before they are grown out of. She ordered some similar ones for their older nephews too. Someone took a photo of them all together, and I must track a copy down!


The wedding was a lovey do, and the wedding breakfast was excellent. Most of the kiddies got to sit at their own table in the middle too (not Georgie or the 5 week old baby girl whose mum shared our table) which was fabulous! They loved the independence, and frankly we parents enjoyed the break! The evening do was fab too. My 3 boys dragged me onto the dance floor for a little while where we did a strange circular dance that made sense to them... Georgie loved it and kept shouting "Dance!" and playing in the lights. Jack, we barely saw once the music started. Tom preferred to stick to his Dad's side - but that's Tom all over!

By about 10:15pm they were ready to go so we drove back to the hotel and they passed out just before 11pm. They slept the whole way home!

Romance

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 one of thos…

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…

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
