YAY! - Again!

Went to see Shrek 2 yesterday! What a funny film! Laughed so hard I almost CRIED! Went with Yorkie, Fran, Simon, Ray, Sarah and Jordan (frans neph). Only Jordan thought it was dull and almost fell asleep (strange child).

After the film we went back to Fran and Simons and watched the Euro Final - I was the only one supporting Greece (well, I do have step-family in Crete) so naturally I was thrilled (and very much alone in that house) when they won! HAHAHA!

Today was pretty good too. Sadly no Andrea (but she's had mum-in-law over this weekend, so I'm not suppriesed), but mystiously, no Glenn either.... maybe he did get away - somewhere.

Gemma spotted Mobsy and Fee walking across the road so we shouted them into the office for a brew and a chin wag - which was fun (and a good excuse to do very little for an hour, well, I did work through my lunch today, so I reccon I deserved a break). Nice little Slag Off of Alison since Mobsy "knows" her, lol

But best of all, when I get to my computer and sift through the people who msn'ed my while I was away - who had left me a message? None other than my long-lost best mate Jacquie!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!

Now, I am very very lucky in that I have two best mates, Angie (who has an LJ here - Hi Ang) and Jacquie who I went to Uni with and had one or two dodgy adventures with, but I haven't had a peep out of Jacs for months - not since she told me the good news of her expecting her second child. Been very worried about her, but not been able to get through on text and I've lost her home number DOOOOM! So her getting in touch again is the best thing that's happened in AGES!

She's gonna call tonight and catch up. YAY!

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
