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!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
