Grandma Visited!

My Mother-in-law and her other half came to visit  today & meet baby Freddie. The plan was to take the kids to Morecambe and let them play while chat and pass Freddie round for cuddles.

Didn't happen... Flaming wrecked tire on my car! All the wall is ragged, and it's flat. Didn't know when I got in, with all the kids & hubby, ready to go out to a play zone with MIL & her HO following in their car. As I'm turning the car round he flashed his lights at me and waves out the window. He's spotted the flat.

Tried pumping it up but you could hear the air hissing out of the tire as fast as it was going in

Apparently ford galaxy's dont come with a spare tire... Just a puncture kit. Mine being 2nd hand has no such thing.

So no play zone until I can get my car to the garage in the week. I need the glow plugs looking at anyway, and the air con. But still.... Annoying as hell!

We walked to the local park instead - in the rain. But it worked out ok. The sun came out, I got to try out one of my new slings properly, and I wound up sharing a very surreal conversation with Mother-in-law, while sitting on a park bench like a pair of old biddies, about our mutual experience and dislike of cankles!

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…
