Still love that job!

It's been a good couple of days since I wrote last. Like Yorkie's birthday for a start! HAPPY 32ND BABE!

I managed to get a great deal on buying him some PS2 stuff and a copy of Silent Hill 3 - thanks to my WONDERFUL staff discount. Can't tell you how much coz I promised to keep it quiet - and it'll only make you all sick anyway! hahaha!

We weren't gonna go out friday (his birthday) even thoughI had offered a huuuuge choice of things to do - like house party/pub with his mates/meal out/cinema... well, anything he wanted really, but he maintained that he didn't want to do anything, just stay in, the two of us alone with Slint Hill.... sweet eh? Dull though. I mean, I love Silent Hill, but you should do SOMETHING for your birthday.

So HOORAY for Mark when he rang up - having sneaked out of hospital under the pretense of buying a hot choc from the machine - asking if we fancied a drink in the Ring O Bells. Well, you just cant turn down a man on the run from the doctors, so off we went, for half an hour. Which turned into an all nighter! YAY!

Staurday we went to see Fran and Simon, with Ray, to watch the England Turkey match. Another great evening of larger drinking as laughs with friends - which ended in the usual walk home spat between me and Yorks (can you beileve in his drunken state he accused me of stopping him going out on his birthday, when he had repeatedly told me he wanted nothing... and when we were infect coming home from being out... go figure. He can't even remember where he got the notion from himself now). Harmless though and we made it up when he regained conciousness at about half two the following afternoon.

Sunday was pretty quiet. When he did eventually wake up and appolgies for being a numpty we spent the rest of the day of SH3.

Back to work today, and I still love it at Micro Markets - although I still can't shift that old guy from the Post Office off my trail. He's even getting on the train with me now. Getting a little more than just creeped out by it now. Not to mention that I'm having the piss taken out of me by the girls at the Post Office! Lol.

Thats it for today. Just been chatting to Mum, and she's off to see my step sister and her family in Crete tomorrow (with John my step dad too... just incase you wondered) and have been blanked by my dad on Yahoo, and now it's time for bed... got to be up for WORK tomorrow... YAY!

(That feeling wont last...)

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
