Another post men should not read (you have been warned)

I know now for a fact that we will not be planning any more kids. This is it. We have the four children we'd always said we wanted. I'm 35 now and I always said I wanted to be done having babies by the time I was 35. We cannot afford more kids, there is no more room in our house for more kids. WE. ARE. DONE.

So now I need to make sure it stays that way...

This week I underwent one of the least pleasant experiences of my adult life! I rate it as less pleasant that getting a sweep to induce labour, less comfortable that a smear test, and less dignified than just about any other medical procedure I have ever endured... I had a mirena coil fitted.

Two ladies performed the fitting (one was training), while a third "chatted" with me to help take my mind off the fact that someone had jacked open my private parts and seemed to be peering up them while supporting a head torch and wielding odd looking medical apparatus. The phrase "you might feel some slight discomfort" was used right before I almost bit through my own lip trying not to swear and threaten physical violence...! The water colour painting of a beach scene blu-taced to the ceiling tile above my head was less of a distraction that you might have imagined at that point.

Oh... and can I suggest that you DON'T Google Image Search mirena coil fitting.

Needless to say it not something I am looking to repeat any time soon. Sure, they last for 5 years, but you know, the whole experience has just convinced me further that my best option - once Freddie has stopped breastfeeding - is to go and get my tubes tided. That's something they can do while I'm knocked out!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.

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!
