Over the hump

Well, it's wednesday, so I guess that means we're half way through the week already. Only two more days at work before the weekend. But I should have my dad over this weekend so there's not much chance of relaxation. There will be LONG rant the day he visits, I can almost promise you that! Don't get me wrong, I do love him and I am grateful for the money he gives me - face it, I need it to live most of the time. But he's such hard work to be around!

I'm heavily pissed off with Helen, the woman who is acting as Post Office Manger while Mike is away. She has NO time for the staff! Three times today I asked her to change some £20s to £5s and £1s so that I could accually give my customers change... she never did it. "Oh, I'll be right on it!" Nothing. SHe told me she'd be "right there" to help a customer I wasn't trained to help. She didn't turn up at all - or even mention it to me later when the customer had given up and gone. At least the customer know and acknowlaged that I had done all I could do and that it was Helen who had let her down. She did this to me on monday too - I asked her for help on something I haven't been trained on and she just fobbed me off straight away. God, I hope Mike's only away for one week and not two!

I've just had to fork out over £60 for new ink for my printer too which I'm not happy about. But atleast I'll be able to print off that CV and hopefully get a new job away from the post office and in with the computers instead.

I am knackered today though. It was a morning shift today so I was up at 10 to 7 this morning, after being woken up at 5am by Muppet who had managed to get locked up strais and couldn't get to her litter tray. Poor furry little lass was clawing at the bedroom door with her hind legs crossed! I was so tired and achy after less than a full nights sleep, early morning, work and then town that I couldn't even act on Yorkie's 'advances' in the bathroom when we had a shower together. Not like me AT ALL!

Gonna go and call my dad... will probaly be back later to have a little rant about him :-P

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
