Greenlands Farm Village - Bush Trial!

My Mum came to visit today so we took the kids out (apart from Jack who stayed home with Daddy). We let them choose. Georgie shouted "Animal Farm!" and Tom followed that with "Can we go to the one with the Boo Barn?!" - That was the Halloween event at Greenlands Farm Village! So off we went.

We arrived in time for Tom & Georgie to get on the donkeys for another ride about. This time they went a different way round the farm this time too so that worked out brilliantly for them. Georgie loved getting to ride on George The Donkey again - it really tickles him that they share the same name!

Tom remembered his way round really well and lead the way so he could show Nana all the animals. He couldn't wait to show her the ducks! Then we watched the lads play in the hay barn while I fed Freddie. We took a look at the collie pups and watched as some escapee piglets got rounded up and put back in their pen with mummy pig - squealing piglets! What a noise! We made time for the petting zoo too, and one guinea pig seemed to want to climb into George's pocket and come home with us!

Tom was still chattering about the Boo Barn and I was trying to explain that Halloween was over now, we'd have to come back and see if they were doing anything for Christmas next month... when the door opened and the young lady who had been in the Boo Barn with them came out. She remembered us! And there WAS a new event... an "I'm a Celebrity" themed one! So in we went (but not Nana who is phobic about snakes!)

Inside were a row of tanks with hissing cockroaches, mealworms, snakes, "mystery items" and fake blood, all there for dipping your hands in if you dare! And at the end... the very last challenge.... EAT A MEALWORM! The lass handed out a tub of mealworms (dead ones!) and offered them to Tom & George, who both accepted and ate one! Tom pulled a face like you wouldn't believe - but it didn't come back out. Georgie took a second one!!!


They got a packet of chocolate button each for their bravery (or to take the taste away) and a great story to tell back at school & nursery on Monday!

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…
