Old Holly Farm

It's Freddie's first trip to Old Holly Farm! Not that he will remember it of cause, but still, it's a nice memory for me of no one else, hee hee!

It's looked like rain all day but the sun managed to stay out while we were out side and that's all we needed.

We got there late in the day so I'm glad I didn't buy any animal feed this time. The calves were far from hungry when we went to see them. There was another family doing the same circuit as us and their kids were tying to feed the calves but only one was mildly interested. My lot decided to swerve the sleeping baby cows and play on the wooden play ground for a bit instead, although it's a bit high for Georgie who went shooting off the end of the slide and gave me a fright (he thought it was awesome).

I was glad to get into the soft play this time. Venturing out with all 4 boys on my own is ok, but still a little nerve wrecking at the moment. I've been carrying him in the sling which gives me free hands and keeps him happy & quiet, but after a while I need to sit down and take the weight off! So coffe (fruit shoots for the kids) and cake it was while they ran round like mental cases! Georgie made a friend! A little girl, a bit taller/older than him maybe, and they were running about together holding hands, Very sweet! He was heart broken when she left.

I made a bit of a boob with the Donkey Rides... Every time we've been to Old Holly it's been bad weather so the donkeys are inside and not giving rides. This time they were out! So I thought I would use them as my get-away bribe for when it came to leaving the soft play area. But I should have checked them times...! Donkey rides finish half an hour before Old Holly closes. And we missed it. My bad! I'll know better for next time!

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.
