Welcome to my new Followers, Honey, Jackie, Kristen, Christine, Emma, Becky & Rachel, thanks for joining.
I'm not sure whether it's just me that remembers the lovely Miss Piggy, going around Karate chopping everyone, whilst shouting Hi-Yah in a most unlady like way? However, I know that this is exactly what I look like on a Friday night!!
Many months ago No. 2 Son declared that he would only continue going to his Taekwondo class, if I joined in too, rather than sitting at the side watching him. Well I knew I wanted him to continue, it's been brilliant for his co-ordination, confidence and discipline, so what's a Mommy to do, but become the class Hefalump?
So every Friday night, I provide the entertainment for all the other parents sitting at the side, as I feebly attempt to jump, kick, spar, run, punch and block with a group of mainly children, more than half my age. One of whom I might add, is the Under 16 World Champion. The sight of a very inflexible, unfit, overweight, 41 year old mother of two is probably more tragic than amusing, to be honest. Thankfully I am only a White Belt so for a lot of the time I get to stand at the back of the class and on nights like tonight, when I haven't been for two weeks, it's just aswell.

I think I might need an ice bath tonight, just to be able to move tomorrow!!!!

Partial success today with the Chocolate Chip cookies, as recommended by Scarlet, from Tales Beyond the Nook on Lucy's Blog - http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2009/02/chocolate-chip-cookies.html. Thank you Scarlet.
I didn't have the brown sugar the recipe called for, so I used Caster Sugar instead, but they weren't half bad.
Both Sons liked them, but DH, felt they hadn't set, as they were very soft in the middle. I did try and tell him they were meant to be like that, but what can I tell you, the man's a heathen, sometimes!
Whilst on mt teabreak this morning I also started Crochet Blanket Project No. 2. I'll show you a picture when there's a bit more to see, as it's just a long chain at the moment. I am in slight danger of just starting lots of different things and not finishing them. I seem to already have a lot of Cross Stitch pieces like that. Hmm, best watch out as there is no more space in my dining room for more WIP's.
