Tom's first bike and first lesson (all of 10 minutes!)


There's a family bike ride coming up soon with our Scout Group, which reminded me that Jack hadn't been on his bike in AGES - not since it had needed adjusting and we hadn't got round to it (#BadParents). So I dragged it out of storage, dusted off the cob webs, and pumped up the tyres.

But Jack has out grown it!

Good news for Tom though, because it's just the right size for him and hardly used. Bad news for me because that means a new bike for Jack - and because I was daft enough to go shopping for it with George in tow - it's a small bike for George too. Kaching! Thank God Freddie is too small to want one!

Tom was delighted to have a bike of his own, even though he has never ridden a day in his life. I got the helmet fitted to his head, made sure the saddle etc was right for him, and we had a go on the street (don't worry folks, it's at the dead end of a dead end, no traffic). He wouldn't let me let go and he's shaky on peddling, but it was ok for a first go. Especially without stabilizers. I think a few weekends and evenings practice and we'll get there.

He's a nervous nelly but tried so hard! Jack and George have to wait till tomorrow for theirs.

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…
