I seem to have traded George in for a Ninja Turtle!


This is the cheeky chappy I picked up from nursery today.

Just for a change I arrived bang on time to pick George up (more luck than judgement as I'd been out for a walk with Freddie and a friend of mine). As I waited for George to come out I was passed by a few kids with their faces painted - including one of Georgie's two best buddies. He was done up like a Turtle (Donatello apparently, the purple one). And I just knew that George would be a Turtle too! I turned to my friend and said "bet you anything he say's he's Michaelangelo!"

Sure enough George came bursting out of the nursery with a green face and orange eyes! (Yes I know it looks red in the photo). "Mummy! Mummy! Look! I'm Mikey! I'm a Turtle!!!!"

One seriously happy boy!

Until bed time and it had to be washed off. And it really did.... after an afternoon at home, and his tea, it was less Ninja Turtle and more Horrific Zombie! He had snook up behind his dad to show him his Turtle face as soon as daddy had come home from work. Unfortunately Hubs was on the stairs taking his boots off and in the half light saw a small, green, melted face loom up at him with biiiiig red eyes. It was not the response George was after - but he liked it anyway! Hee hee hee!

Poor George had a screaming fit at the face paint being washed off but eventually I calmed him down, reminded him we have face paints at home too (somewhere........) and we could do it again at the weekend. He didn't believe me until I pointed out that mummy paints her face every day for work, takes it off before bed, and does it all again the day after.

I think I'm going to have to dig out those face paints!

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…
