Stunned

I am AMAZED! The money dad promised me has actaully turned up! Not just the £50.00 in my bank, but another £80.00 through the post. This is to get my car fixed by the way - it needs new shockers, a new wing mirror and the front tires need the tracking sorted out. The tracking was a problem caused by dear old dad and his ideas for cheap fixes, so i'm taking the cash. I did try to talk him out of it - I don't like him giving me hand outs purely because he then uses the fact against me in his usual emotional blackmail bouts, but I am strapped, and the jobs really need doing.... beggers and choosers and such likeI think I fianlly managed to alter the work web site enough to make it fit on older moniters (low rez pc's were having hassles viewing my stuff), but now I have days of wonderful maths to look forward too - prices and that. I hate doing this bit. I'm no good at maths, and I can just about cope when I have the formulars writeen down, I can make them work and evrything, just don't ever expect me to understand them - coz I can't!Glenn was in the office all day, so we didn't get any time for chit-chat or messing about, so there isn't really much more to say. My poor feller seems a tad wound up too - think he had a hard day, but he's not saying much about it.Weather's crap - maybe that's what's getting everyone down

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
