Men... DOH!

Ray came over this morning. He and Yorkie were supposed to be doing some DIY up at Ray and Sarahs house. Needless to say they didn't actually do any work all day, they just drove around and fecked about as lads will do on a day out with out their women.

Th best bit is when they ring me up while I'm sat at Morecambe train station waiting to come home. Would I like a lift home instead. Well, they've rung from my house so I know they aren't out and about and in the area, but it does occure to me that maybe they are off to the pub so I agree, having not bought a trin ticket yet.

Trian comes. Trian goes. No boys.

As I was about to call them (around the time I would have been half way home on the train) they arrive and pick me up. We drive back to Lancaster and the lads are chatting away. Seems that we are not going to pub or anything after all, and infact Ray has to be home very very soon to take Sarah to see her sick grandad, so would we mind being dropped in town. Sure, no problem. Drops us off.

Of course, now I'm fozen having been sat in the cold for over half an hour in coastal winds. We're at the wrong end of town, so I have to walk three times as far as I would have if I had caught the train and I'm home an hour later than I would have been if they hadn't given me a 'lift'.

Great lift lads. But next time, I'll get the trian! :0)

Work was ok... spent the whole shift piecing together a card board stand for diaries and checking the new christmas/new year diary stock. Some of which was missing, and replaced with two PRAMS... Go figure.

I think I served Sara today as well, a lass I vagely know through Yorkie and the lads, but she didn't recognise me. 95% sure it was her. I didn't say her name incase I was wrong, but was friendly enough for her to think I was sure it was her, if it was... Corse, I look a lot different when I'm at work. I look all smart and professional - perfect hair and make-up, smart dress etc - and the name badge with 'Trisha' will confuse people who don't know me all that well. Normally I'm t-shirt, jeans, no glasses, minimal make up and a pint of something alcoholic in my hand.

All being said, I did get bought saussage and chips from the chippie by Yorkie on the walk home and I feel pretty chilled and that about life in general. Plus it's only one day away from the weekend. God, I hope I get to go out this weekend. I hope I have enough cash...

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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
