Nesting in full swing!

We're on!

Finally got the drawers today, after waiting half the day for a text from Argos that turned out to be an email sent yesterday (not impressed Argos, you can do better than that!) We've opted to give them to Jack instead of George, and give George Jack's drawers... Which are going into the nursery. Confused? Trust me, it makes since really. The new drawers have more room in them which means Jack has a drawer especially for his school uniform. They are the same as Tom's so they can go side-by-side and the top be used as Georgie-proof storage (no more Lego tipped out all over the floor at 2 am).

Having the smaller set of drawers in the nursery for Georgie to use isn't ideal, but it is only short term really. Once the room shuffle starts it won't matter any more. Right now, making sure the boys have room to play in their room is more important than tons of free space in the nursery.

So, Hubby has built the new drawers. I have arranged Jack's clothes in them. I have moved the other drawers into the nursery, and emptied the bookcase. The kids are in bed now and Hubby is mending the bookcase - which is only a cheapie one I bought as a temporary thing 15 years ago and has taken a hammering. Poor bloke is worn out, but it needs doing tonight because all the stuff that was on it is now on our bed! If it's not mended, in place, and filled tonight we'll be sleeping in the living room! He's getting a bit grumpy. I'm staying out of his way!

Needless to say the crib will NOT be getting sorted tonight. I might have a go tomorrow after work if I have any energy left. If not... Well there's time yet. 75 days to due date!

My next job: a big clothes sort! I'm planning to start on Sunday (next day me and Hubs are both home) but with the kids home that day I doubt I'll get much done.

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…
