Gutted, Damn the Flu!


The damn flu has spread round the rest of the girls and they are all sick..... In the end only Debs and Marie could make it, and I was starting to feel more than just a bit off myself. So I had to cancel my sing star party. Soooo sad!

It's fair enought though. Poor Sarah looked so ill last weekend at Simon's 30th, and we were all very close, and sharing the dips and stuff. It makes sence that we've all caught it. I've been putting my own symptoms down to feeling depressed, getting drunk and throwing up, and being cold yesterday. I.E. bad tum, sore throat and banging head. It feels like someone driving six inch nails in the base of my skull. Guess in truth I've got a touch of this bug that they all have. Even Jill said "blame Sarah", lol. Still, the game's are going no where, and me and Yorkie troffed the snacks for tea last night! It's not like I can't do it all again in the New Year.

So instead me and Yorks spent the night cuddled up with the cat eating junk and catching up on the TV we've missed all week with us being out and social, and catching up on talking to the family on the phone and sorting out the plans for Christmas. We went up to bed early to watch Good Will Hunting on channel 4, which I've never seen, and fell asleep before it even finished! Guess I would have been no good hosting a party last night after all! Still gutted about it though.

I plan on doing as little as possible today. Apart from ferrying Yorkie to and from work, I think all I'll do today is a bit of laundry and a good few hours on the Sims. There's little point doing any work, as everything is up dated and I can't deal with any suppliers / banks on a Sunday. I have things I need to sort, but they can wait until tomorrow. Stuff um! I'm feeling stressed out by work a the moment I want to do a Glenn for the day, i.e. bury my head in the sand and hope it sorts it self out! Hee hee hee, I know it wont, but just for today I'm going to pretend!

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
