The "Before Baby List"

I've been whittling away at the "Before Baby List" that Hubby and I knocked up a few weeks ago. There are only 3 things left on the list now! I am very happy about this!

I managed to get the crib up a couple of weeks ago, the mattresses for that and the moses basket arrived yesterday (along with the change mat that says "Keep Calm and Change Me Bum", Yay!)

This morning I had a spurt of energy and finally got round to fitting the nicely washed and dried seat covers onto the Baby Car Seat. I've had to rearrange where all the kids will sit in the car though. I had planned for Baby to be in the middle with Tom & Georgie either side and Jack either in the 3rd row or the front seat (depending on if Hubby was with us or not). But I couldn't get the seatbelt to wrap round the back of the Baby Seat which meant that it wouldn't be safe. After 15 mins or so of playing musical chairs I managed to get it all sorted though, and honestly I think this is better and safer the way it's done now! So that's all good!

The nappy sanitizer and replacement nets have been here for a while, but I hadn't got round to reclaiming the nappy bucket from the cellar until this morning. I had visions of it being full of dead spiders and other such yuckiness after spending a year down there, but I was very pleasantly surprised! The lockable lid had stayed on and only the outside of the bucket needed a quick clean round. I will run some sanitizer through it before we start to use it but I'm thinking that's a job for the last day or two before I go in for my induction.

So now there are only 3 jobs left. One is buying the bouncy seat - and my Mum wants to do that. The other two jobs are the washing and sorting of Baby's clothes and cloth nappies. With still 5 weeks to go I don't see much of a problem with that!

Happy Mummy!

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…

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…
