What a weekend!

It really has been one of those weekends and very busy. Ethan had his Ju-Jitsu grading on Sunday to gain his orange belt so he had his last lesson on Saturday. It was a good session but there was a lot to remember with all the different moves. His grading on Sunday went well and the move he was most unsure about went well and he PASSED. It's now onto green belt which is quite a jump so he may not take his next grading so quickly. Here is a photo of Ethan once we got back with his new orange belt on:

Saturday morning before leaving for Ju-Jitsu my new Crumpler Ben's Pizza XL Camera bag arrived and I love it. I already have a medium Ben's Pizza which is perfect for just taking my camera and smaller lens out. When I wanted to take my bigger lens and accesories out though I needed a bigger bag and I really liked the look of this one. I thought it was going to be quite big but fortunately it isn't - it's the perfect size. It fits so much in and there is still plenty of room for more.

On Saturday evening I realised the fridge was smelling a bit and after a little investigation it became clear that it had broke, along with the freezer as it's a fridge freezer. We tried to save as much food as possible and take to my Mum and Dad's but there wasn't a lot. The rest went in the bin - what a waste. I was really worrying about Flynn's food as I make it so needs to be kept in the fridge or freezer. I kept his food at my parents and have had to nip out to get it at meal times. We went to order a new fridge freezer yesterday expecting delivery to be the end of this week but thankfully they could deliver the next day - it has just been delivered and it's fab. It's quite a bit bigger than the last one so no more carefully placing the food to fit everything in! So although it was terrible timing we were going to be getting a new one in the near future and I love it. In the future I'd love a big America fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser but that will have to wait till we extend our kitchen!

I have also been ill over the weekend, not sure what it is but have had fever, aches and pains, sore throat, ear ache etc. It doesn't seem to be what Flynn has had and still has but there is obviously something in the air. I just hope I'm better for Wednesday as I've agreed to go on Ethan's school trip which he is super excited about as I'm going.

I had hoped to get some scrapping done over the weekend but with feeling unwell resting has took priority. Hopefully I'll get done this week as there is so much i want to do. I'm also planning on buying a Bind-it-All soon after seeing it in action at the Teresa Collins class I went to. Katy has also got one and is really pleased with hers, so that will be my next purchase :)

This week I'll post some recent photos of the boys, seems ages since I've done a post just on photos of them :)

Sorry to hear you've been poorly ... I hope you are now feeling better.

What a pain that your fridge broke, but I'm glad that you managed to sort a new one and that you got it so quickly.

Well done to Ethan on his orange belt ... he seems to be flying through them!! That's a lovely photo you got of him.
