Family Fun!

You know, I used to be really good with a camera! What went wrong??? Why are the plates on the table in focus, and every thing else isn't? Weeeerrrr! At least I know I can get good photos from Tony and Dave to look at and enjoy.

Well, anyway, on Friday night me and Yorkie went down to see his folks. We stayed with Tony (his step dad) and Jenny (his sister). It was Nick's birthday this week so we went for the family party. And it was great! I love staying there, me and Tony talk for HOURS, and he always makes me feel good about my self and relaxed. He also given me some good advice on computer stuff to help with my business!

The party was great fun too, loads of food, a BBQ that set on fire, inflatable goals posts that almost killed Yorkie and Dave to inflate - and Yorkie got his inside out! Kids EVERY WHERE , Nicky, (a lass Yorkie went to school with) was there with her two little boys who are about the same age as Chris and Nick, and there are more toys than a toy shop, so you can imagin we were in our element! I lost Yorkie and Bob to a box full of Power Ranger toys for at least an hour!

As usual I was deeply touched by how nice his family are too me. Rachel even remembered my birthday is next week and along with an engagement card, gave me a birthday card and a lovely bunch of flowers too - now taking pride of place in my living room. She made the cards her self too and they are beautiful. She's thinking about starting up a small business selling them, she already sells some to people she knows. They're great (must remember to scan them later for you to see). I've swopped emails with Katie and Dave, and Dave's sent me his flickr address so I can see his shots of the kids. Tony's given us a disk full of photos of the boys too which is wonderful. We hardly had any photos of them, and now I have tons to enjoy!

The only down side of the trip was that it just asn't long enough. I didn't get chance to have a good natter with everyone, but seeing them at all was good. It's a shame that we wont get down again until Christmas.

We DID manage to get lost again on the way home. Don't we always?? Somehow the M1 turned into the A1, and we were only 48 miles of Teeside before we turned round and went back the way we came! At least it wasn't Wigon this time!

You shuld come and visit me then!:D I'm off to Teesside soon.:3 Seems like you know a lot of creative people. Making and selling cards would be a great idea for your friend. I know you can make lots of money from them. People have suggested it to me but...my work isn't really geared towards that and then there's the whole copyright stuff if you want to use a character you like over and over again. My problem if that when I draw a random character I get attachted to them and they gain a personality so it's even harder to let them go.;^; *Wibble* I haven't got you an engagement card btw, would you like one? You're present will be late, I'd prefer to give it you in person. Will have to arrange when though otherwise I'll end up leaving my trip to visit you for the weekend until the ast minuet and then it won't happen. I need you to set me a date so I don't forget...I can't remember which weekends you're away.:\

Cya!

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

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
