Morecambe with Nana

This was a lovely day! My Mum came to visit and to spoil the kids, as only a Nana knows how. We gave Hubby a day's peace and took the boys over to Morecambe to have a play at Happy Mount Park.

We headed straight for the central play area and paid them in for a play on the cars and climbing frames. I fully expected to be sat having a chat with my mum while the kids played, but instead I was sat watching my mum follow Georgie round and "help" him on the climbing frames and slides. I couldn't help chuckling to myself as I know Georgie is more than capable of doing all these things by himself. But Georgie and Mum have a lovely bond and frankly I think she enjoyed trailing around after him.

There was a certain amount of hesitation though as she was unsure if she wanted to follow Georgie or snuggle Freddie! At least while I was feeding Freddie she had that decision made for her, but as soon as he was finished feeding she was sat giving him a long cuddle while I pushed Georgie on the swings and ran around with Jack & Tom taking photos of their adventures (I get constant "Mummy! Take a picture! Put it on Facebook so people can Like it!")

The kids had their snacks and then they wanted to ride on the miniature train with Nana, and then go and play in the Pirate Park soft play area. We took the chance to go and have a coffee while they went crazy on the bouncy castle/pirate ship. We almost didn't get Georgie through the door though as he had his heart set on going on the trampolines... I'd be happier him being a little older and more steady on his feet before I let him loose on those and that resulted in a bit of a tantrum. But he soon got over it.

For the first time my lads took notice of the carousel, and begged Nana to let them go on. Naturally she paid up for them to go (see, Nana spoils them, hee hee) and they scrambled on. Tom chose a carriage, Jack & Georgie chose horses. The older lads were not impressed... Not all the horses move and by chance both lads chose static horses. Jack moaned all the way round. Tom complained that his carriage didn't do anything - what did he expect it to do? Georgie, on the other hand, thought it was the greatest thing EVER and grinned all the way round! He cried when it was time to get off..... Oh well. Can't win them all!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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.
