The new job!

Well, I would have written yesterday, but I was completly whipped out when I got home. You see, yesterday was the first day of my new job as Internet Sales Manager for Micro Markets!!!!! YAY!!!

And it was great!

But the day before I had been caught out in the freezing cold, wind, rian and sleet in Morecambe when my train was cancelled and after working two jobs yesterday all I wanted to do was go to bed. So I did!

This job is great though. I know I'm only doing the starting stuff now and I'm not really managing yet as I have no one to manage yet, but the work is good. I've been learning all about the different sales methods, doing research into the stuff we sell - comparing costs and basiclly how good the stuff is, and then making sure all the photos look really good and putting them up for auction.

Still at the post office though for the next few weeks. But everyone seems to have good things to say about me. Mike - the post office manager - was saying to me today how Micro Markets are getting such a good employee in me and that they (post office) will be sorry to see me go. And Glenn (Micro Markets boss) told me I was doing great, far better than he'd even hoped I would and predicted that by the time I go full time there I'll be on top of everything and running smoothly. YAY!

So it's all a little bit dull as far as reading goes, but I am actually having a great time. I have a job I like and that I can do, and I'm getting paid money on a regualr basis for the first time in ages and I'm working desent hours for the first time ever so it's all good!

Problem is that I'll be rushed off my feet so I'll only be writting this a couple of times a week now until I get used to working full time hours again. So, until the end of the week, so long my friends. Xx

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
