Starting To Nest!

Vests from the set Jack chose
I went out with Jack today and he chose Bean's "coming home" outfit a gender neutral two piece set with a fluffy elephant on it. Then we found some vests and a hat to match! So that's that sorted! All I need for the hospital bag now are the nappies and something for me to wear when I come home!

I've been trying to sort the nursery a bit. We're a bit stuck now until next week when Georgie's new drawers arrive. So far his clothes are still in the nursery room drawers, which Bean will need. But once he has his own drawers I can start looking through my baby clothes and cloth nappies, give the drawers a good clean, and check over the baby toys to see if they are in need of cleaning.

I started to look at what we had for baby and there is just SO much stuff that we already have! Loads of soft toys, musical toys, a couple of play mats/gyms with interchangeable toys (about 2 bags of toys for them). I want to get a new bouncy chair. But beyond that.... Bean is pretty well set up!

I've dug out the baby car seat and taken the cover off ready to get washed - it got a bit dusty since it was used last. I'd like to get it in the car now (just to get it out of the way) but don't know how many more runs to the tip hubby wants to make between now and baby and it seems silly to put it in just to keep taking it out every other weekend for the next 10-12 weeks. For now it's sat in the baby bath next to the cot.

I'm itching to get back into my baby clothes stash. I ditched a load of stuff just before I put it away last time and only kept stuff I really really love. I'm going to get a bit teary eyed going through it all again I bet!

I want to put the crib up soon. I was hoping for this weekend. But there is still a bookcase in our room where I want the crib to go. That needs to go into the nursery, but can't move until Georgie's drawers are here and we've worked out the best way to squeeze everything in.

So...... Everything hinges on these ruddy drawers! And when there is a whole weekend just begging for stuff to fill it, Tuesday feels like a looooooong way away!

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…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
