Oooh... Sucked in by Juicing!

I said I didn't want a juicer. I was adamant about it. It would be more clutter in my kitchen, an expense I could do without, a gadget I was lose interest in, and all I could think about was the (nasty, gritty, gungy) juice my dad used to make with the juicer he bought in the early 80's. It was really grim!

But I have been LOVING the juice I have been buying from Juicafe! I am spending £10-15 a week in there though and that's not great for my bank balance. I really need to cap myself at ONE cafe trip a week - be it coffee bar or juice bar.

I have been browsing Pinterest for juice recipes and tasty fruit combinations, and I have been getting quite excited about it all. I'm not up for "Juice Fasting" or "Detox Diets" because I don't think they are any good for long term weight loss. I am not thinking about replacing my Weight Watchers with juice... I want to add to it. Most of the juices I have looked at are Zero Points so I can have them any time. Plus the kids are interested in trying it out too.


Hubby gave me £30 Amazon vouchers for Valentines (I think so I could by some of those Kindle books I have clogging up my wish list) and I have gone and spent it on this: Andrew James Power Juicer - not bad at 60% off and good reviews.



So it should be here by the end of the week. I am due to put another grocery order in today too so I think I will be adding a shed load of carrots and apples (for a base) and a lovely selection of other fruits and veggies, and give some of these Pins a try!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
