Tornado over Lancaster?!

Well.... who'd have thought it? Little Old Lancaster, where nothing extraordinary ever happens (hardly ever, remember the Earthquake of 2009?), had a tornado - well, a funnel cloud - pass overhead last night.

I heard the storm. I was just putting Tom & Georgie to bed, we'd read a Peppa Pig book where there had been a thunder storm leading to many many muddy puddles, and then we heard the thunder and pouring rain for real. It was really coming down hard!

The tornado surprises me though, because (aside from not being usual up our neck of the woods) when I stuck my head out of the front door wondering where the cat was and why he wasn't begging to come in, there was barely a breath of wind. I would have assumed it would be at least a BIT windy! Fizzy (the cat) made it home shortly after when there was a break in the rain and enjoyed a good rubbing down from me and Jack.

Even without catching a glimpse of the tornado myself I can say the weather was odd. Thunder, pouring rain, and brilliant sunshine all at the same time.

Anyway, just to prove I am not making it up (because when I saw it on Facebook I thought it was a hoax), here's the link to the local paper: http://www.lancasterguardian.co.uk/news/local/tornado-hits-lancaster-1-6664125

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…
