Halloween 2014 at Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester

Awww! It's Freddie's first Halloween! And despite the look on his face he was ok in the Baby Bat costume! Georgie wore a Spider costume because he is currently obsessed with "Mr Skinny Legs" (thank you Peppa Pig), Tom wore the Pumpkin costume that he'd asked for last year and then refused to wear in favour of one of Jack's old Skelly costumes, and Jack was a Zombie for the second year running.

Since last years trip to Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester being such a hit with the kids we thought we'd do it again this year! It's Brick Or Treat time!

We pre-booked out tickets online and got in pretty quickly and the kids collected their limited edition Halloween 2014 Lego Brick at the end of the Factory Tour! It was great to see all the ghosties had taken over Miniland again, it's super spooky and the kids thought it was great. Perfect for Halloween! We rode the Kingdom Quest ride and got our photo put into a fridge magnet - me and the Hubby look to be taking it way too seriously! The we let the boys loose in the play area!

Jack & Tom made a bee line for the Lego Construction Site Soft Play Zone. We stayed with Georgie building things in the massive brick tubs. Then we went to watch a 4D movie! Last year we caught the Chima movie, this year we watched Spell Breaker. Jack & Tom loved it, Georgie got into it once we worked out he needed to wear the glasses (he is only 2), and Freddie just snuggled in for a cuddle!

Jack was straight back into the soft play after the movie, the rest of us went to the Lego Racers Build & Test area to make some cars! We had a bite of lunch and the kids had another play. Georgie spent some time in the Lego Duplo Farm area - perfect for the little ones - while Jack worked on his construction and design skills on the Earthquake Tables, and Tom dragged his Dad on to the Merlin's Apprentice ride. Then both the bigger boys drove round in Lego Police cars on the Forest Pursuit Driving School!

We went to look at the rest of the displays, Jack was so excited by the Lego Star Wars display they have at the moment and tried every single interactive bit he could find! It did look awesome! Me and the Hubby were very impressed too! And right before we entered the shop (where the kids and Hubby cleaned me out of my last few quid) Jack had a go at the Lego Ninjago Laser Training and went all Mission Impossible! It was fab! Had I not been baby wearing Freddie I'd have had a go myself!

So we loved it! We didn't go round everything, but we did get round some things we missed last year, and the kids have made us promise to take them again next Halloween - Brick-or-Treat is becoming a real family tradition for us!

Should I mention that they do a Christmas event too.....?

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…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
