Feeling deflated

Shopping went ok. Got my mum, John, Bob. Jenny and Dave sorted. I've got something for Jacs and David, Yorkie's got some of what he wanted for Tony, and I have a good idea of what to get Fay. That's a big chunk of it out of the way.

The snows gone now though. Figures, it never lasts long here. Too close to the sea maybe. But my real downer is about tonight. Debs is coming over, hopefully with Marie, for some drinks and a take away. But Andrea can't make it, neither can Jill or Fran, and I can't get hold of Sarah, so it's going to be a quiet night. Still, I'm sure we'll still have fun. I don't know Deb and Marie very well, so I guess this is the time to get to know them. I get a feeling that Yorkie's going to be off and hiding first chance he gets (Even though Debs works with him, and is technically "his friend" before she's mine), and I am more than a little nervuse. Nothing to worry about though I bet.

They'll be here in a little over 2 hours. Everything's clean and tidy, I have drinks in, and some snacks and chocs to see us through till we get the food. I was going to get a DVD or something for us to watch, but like I said, I don't know them very well, and don't know what they'd want to watch. Having said that, we do have DVDs of our own, and if we want to watch a film we can choose from them, or find on one sky. But I'm hoping that we'll just get to nattering and it wont matter. Jez, I hate planning nights in when I don't know people! Nights out aren't so bad, you just get hammered, and if conversation drys up, you suggest a new bar and move on! I think I'll start off with a music channel to start with, and see how conversation goes.

*cringe*

Why am I so nervous???

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
