I HATE STAMP COLLECTORS!

Ok.. maybe hate is a strong word, but I am seriously unhappy with some of them. You see, working in the post office shop - and today being the day when the new collectable stamps have come out, I have been ever so slightly inundated with stamp collectors. Unfortunatly, I have never sold any of these special packs before, don't really know where they are all kept or how to key them into the till. It's not that I haven't been trained propely as such, but I haven't been told where EVERYTHING was, and some of the PLUs were missing. So it all went tits up and I had to call for help three times while I had a crowd of irate customers muttering about how think sales girls are.

I HAVE A DEGREE! I AM NOT THICK! I JUST HATE RETAIL!

But aside from that the days been ok - had a couple of upperty customers, but nothing I can't handle.

When I got home Yorkie had been to the pub with Ray (Sulk, I wanted to go too and he was home when I got back - pout). Stuart (Yorkie's mate from college) was over when I got home so we've had a night of Dragon Quest and other such RPG nattering. Although I'm not sure why we were looking at Russian Mail Order Brides for so long. Yorkie keeps blaming Ray, but I don't believe a word of it. I recon they just wanted to look at cheap totty.

I am now awaiting a reply on a possible job at Business 1st in Lancaster. I sent my CV to them the other day and got a call of them yesterday lunch time, but we didn't get the message until about 10 last night. I tried to call them back today but he was busy. I emailed him back about arranging an interview and really hoped I would have a reply when I came home from work today but I didn't. So please cross your fingers for me!

LET ME OUT OF RETAIL!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
