Tonight is Zumba class at the gym...feeeear. I'm kinda really looking forward to it...it is just more latin dancing after all, but it's not yanno, learning a dance it's just jumping in there and doing a load a choreographed routine that you have to pick up over time but I'm sure it will be buckets of fun. Everyone I've spoken to who has done it has said how awesome it is and that it is very addictive.
Made the mistake of wearing my new hot pink vinyl kitten heels to dancing last night, I adore those shoes and I looked really nice but I ended up with black rubber marks all over them from Gav standing on my feet or me kicking his feet when we got the right hand waltz turns wrong. Luckily the rubber marks came off with a little assistance from a pencile raser when we got home but still...won't be doing that again! Will stick with leather shoes which don't mark so well!!
Trial veggie month is going well and definitely helping us make best use of our twice monthly organic Abel & Cole fruit & veggie box. I have been making all sorts of yummy things.
At the weekend I harvested our butternut squash as it was finally ripe. OMG it is ENORMOUS! It weighs 9lb 7oz (4.3kg) and is taller than a wine bottle and about 3 times as fat! It weighs the same as a chunky newborn baby boy ffs!! Haven't eaten it yet but have tucked it away in the big cupboard to store for a bit. Might start it at the weekend. Abel & Cole sent us a butternut on Monday as well so a bit swamped with that! Used the one they sent us last night to make butternut cake which is DIVINE.
Really cold here atm, ice on the cars yesterday and today...today especially and it said -1 in Stephi's car when I got in for my lift this morning! Brrrr!
Picking Felix up tomorrow, hurrah! Totally loving seeing him every other weekend and can't wait til we move to Southampton or surrounding villages (soon! we are looking for jobs down there as we are now only on 1 months notice for house and both our jobs so we could move before the end of the year if the right jobs came up!) so I can hopefully see him every day, it will be awesome to be able to pick him up from nursery/school and look after him if M is at Uni or wants to go out or something or even just have him round for supper a few times a week or whatever and still have him stay at the weekends. Can't wait!! So excited!
Anyway, this was supposed to just be a quick squeal about dancing and it's got long! Oops!
