*Sigh* Long time folks

Hiya again

I know I'm slack with this thing, but i never seem to have time to do anything with it any more - plus we're down to just the on PC at home and Yorkie's pinched it (grr) so I never get to do this at home any more. BUT as I'm sat here on my lunch break at work I thought I'd do a quick entery

It's been an odd old time lately. Yorkie was made redundant the first day back at work after XMas and New Year, apparently due to "company restucturing".... It seems that Craig Property don't need an admin assistant. Funny how they'd filled his job again less than two weeks later.... Oh, and Mary (who he used to work with, and who does - erm - did - the same job at the sister company across the road, MK Properties) got fired last friday. They'd advertised her job two weeks ago, and are trying to fit her up for fraude. Now, I know she not not my most favorit person in the whole world (grum grum grum) but that's still pretty shitty.

Oh... and by the way - I asked Yorkie to marry last night. I'll tell you more about that laster ;-P

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


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
