Sick of it ALL!

Today has to be one of the worse on record for work - not the fault of the job, just of other people cocking things up, and butting in! Me and Andrea are both pissed off!

Poor Andrea has spent HOURS trawling through web sites for Glenn, looking for new disply cabinets for the new shop, following his instructions. Then he changed his mind. So she spent another few hours doing the same again. Then Glenn went back to the first people, and asked them to make them to spec. THEN Clie calls, and says that he has bought the wood to build the cabinets that Glenn asked him to build. Glenn had forgotten all about asking Clive to build them!

Much growling later, Glenn cancels the order with the web people, and Clive is (thankfully) making them - so long as he doesn't change his mind AGAIN

Meantime, "uncle Neil" comes into the office - gets in the way, stinks the place out, follows me around and perves down my shirt!

I desided that today would be a good day to find out which of the games we should have listed on eBay actually ARE on eBay. 217 games are stacked as though listed - AND AREN'T! Thank you EVER SO MUCH GEMMA! Seems the girl has been doing NOTHING the whole time she was at the office!

In fact I have come to the conclusion that - since you don't do this kind of shit to your mates - I must fall under the "not my friends, but Mark's friends" catagory for Gemma, like every one else we know! I wont be so quick to defend her to our other friends in future. They obviously knew her better! I should have paid more attention to the worried looks they all exchanged when I said I was going to get her the job.

Basically, I am TOTALLY pissed off! And because I had to spend the whole of this afternoon ctaching up with listings, and I have to spend ALL OF TOMORROW doing the same, I have got behind on the system maintanence and the building up of the web site. It's screwed up the whole of my week and most of next week too.

And what's more - I have to train a new assistant on Monday, who wont be staying anyway - so what's the point!!!!!

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

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
