Something to aim for

We have a wedding to go to this August, and I have the hen night to look forward to as well in July - which is a spar day & night in a hotel (inc a meal we're dressing up for). And what do weddings mean? NEW FROCKS AND SHOES!

I love love LOVE Lindy Bop dresses! I bought a load last year and wear them for work, nights out, special occasions... all sorts of stuff. One of the reasons I want to get my weight down again is that half of the Lindy Bop frocks I bought last year are now too small and I want to get back in to them.

I also love Iron Fist clothes, especially the shoes. Again, I have a few pairs that I manage to team up with my Lindy's. I'm always thrilled when I find a match! Irregular Choice frequently match Lindy's but they are well out of my price range at the moment - I may treat myself to a pair of those when I get to my Goal Weight though.

So last night I ordered these; two Lindy Bops, and two pairs of Iron Fists, roses for the wedding, cherries for the hen night.

The dresses are 14s!

Currently I look best in an 18, and can wear the 16s but they look and feel a little snug. I can't zip up my 14s without fear of popping the seams! It breaks my heart to see them just hanging on the rail, unworn and unloved. I need to get back to a 14, and I need to do it before the middle of July!

Wish me luck?

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…
