Midwife has been

Midwife has been, took note of all my symptoms and took my blood. She thinks it's still the anaemia too.
She's going to get the test results tomorrow and call me. Worst case: hospital for a transfusion. Hopefully won't come to that, but they can't increase my iron tablets. They might change them. If i do have to have blood given it should only be a few hrs max and she can't see any reason why I couldn't take Freddie & keep him fed. I'm not expressing well (lower milk supply prob due to anaemia too) or I'd leave him with his daddy & a bottle.

You know, "bed rest" (or sofa rest in my case) is great in theory, and awesome for a day or two. But I'm getting fed up now. I want to go and do stuff with the kids. I want to go and show Freddie off. And I want to be able to breathe while I'm doing it.

I'm bored of laying about, bored of watching Netflix, bored of reading my kindle, bored of my apps and Facebook... I want to go OUT! I really resent being ill. My brain is itching to do stuff and my body won't let me.

I am frustrated and tired to the point of tears. It's the summer sodding holidays! So far the kids have been to the park and played in the garden while I sat on my arse. We're supposed to be going to Blackpool Tower, Dalton Zoo, the beach, splash parks....... Not stuck at home because my blood is thin as ****

Sorry. Rant over. Just needed to get it off my chest.

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
