Dear Stomach...

I am so guilty of this.

My worst time is in the evening. Once the kids are in bed, the plates and pots have been cleared away after dinner, and I find myself with idle hands.

So many times I have found myself in the kitchen for no apparent reason, and once I am there I find myself nibbling on a little something or other.

It's a really bad habit.

And it's because I am bored!

So I am finding things to amuse myself. There is a big part of me that says "This is the ideal time to get the Wii Fit out and do some exercise, kill two birds with one stone by avoiding boredom AND earning Active Points at the same time!" and yes, that is a cracking idea. But it's one that I wont follow through with... Mainly because; bored I may be, but brimming with energy I am not. I have tried to do the whole "Wii Fit once the kids are in bed" thing before and you know what? I didn't do it. I procrastinated and dodged... and wound up in the kitchen eating! And now I have the baby too so I am shattered by the evening.

Instead I am finding relaxing things to do that keep my mind exercised instead of my body. Aside from writing this blog I am also crafting and making again. I need to do stuff that doesn't involve food all the time. Something I can concentrate on, and that takes at least an hour or two to do because that takes me from finishing up after the kids bedtime through to my own bedtime!

What do you do to take your mind off dieting and food?

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 one of thos…

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…

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
