IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!


It's my birthday today! I'm 26!!!! And I'm not too happy about it either, lol. It seems these days that - like Christmas - birthdays are for kids. They just stop being fun when you get older! or maybe that's just me.....

But I've done rather well out of it! Dad sent me £150.00 which paid for the car CD player I bought last month, Mum gave me a cheque for £200.00, which I will no doubt spend of clothes, make up and beer, Nan sent me £20.00 of M&S vouchers - which I spent on make-up and bath stuff (very nice), John gave me a pink wire cat sculpture - now taking pride of place in the front room, and Andrea called round with a beautiful Pocket Dragon to add to my growing collection! BRILLIANT!

Poor Yorkie had no idea what to buy me so we went into town so I could choose anything I wanted. DAMED if I could find ANYTHING that I wanted! Lol, so he bought me some of my fave Thorntons Champagne Truffles (YUUUUUUUUUM!) and then went home and ordered series 3 of 24 from Amazon. We went to Blockbusters and rented out 3 DVDs and bought a TON of junk food and alcohol, and spent the night snuggled up, drinking and eating, and enjoys being together. it was VERY sweet and VERY nice!

Me and Andrea have arranged to go on a girly night out next weekend - with the wedding tomorrow, I can't really do anything much for my birthday, so it makes sence to do something next week instead. Hopefully I'll be able to convince Angie to come down the same weekend, and I'll ask the girls tomorrow if they want to / can come too.

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
