24 Hour Drinking - I told you so!

After all the fuss and hassle over the 24 hour drinking licence, look what's happened.

NOTHING!

Let me show you some quotes from the BBC:

'Business as usual' in city clubsPolice say the first Friday night of 24-hour drinking in Sussex and Surrey passed off peacefully.

Smooth start for 24-hour drinkingNew licensing laws allowing 24-hour drinking begin without the widely predicted violence and bad behaviour.

So, is all went well? Are all the people who where SO against it eating their words?

Cold night deters rowdy drinkersPolice say cold weather in Kent helped the first Friday night with longer pub opening times pass off peacefully.

Weekend 'big test for drink laws'Police say the first weekend of 24-drinking in Kent and East Sussex will be an "unknown quantity" for the force.

Mmmm, so it was just a coincidence that violence etc didn't rise, is it? Well, on the news this morning (not on the bbc site yet), guess what? The SAME APPLIES to the weekend! SHOCK HORROR! Look, we're not all screaming, murderus lunatics because we can drink when ever we want!

And, you see how it says up there "Weekend big test...." blah blah blah. Well, as we seem to have passed that test, the test is now going to be the Christmas period.

For gods sake, the majority of people are sensible, reasonable humans who know how to act socially.

GIVE IT UP! YOU'VE BEEN PROOVED WRONG! 24 HOUR AVAILABLITY OF DRINK DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE GOING TO BE SLOSHED 24 HOURS! YOU LOOSE!

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
