A very nice day

Drove down to mum's yesterday, after dropping Yorkie at work. It took me a lot longer than normal though, as when my new little Micra goes over 60 moph it starts to judder!!! Not happy about that. I think it's the tracking / balancing. It feels exactly the same as my Mondeo did after the wheels got fucked with so I'll have to book it into the garage before we go anywhere else.

Still, apart from that I had a really nice day. Seeing Mum's always good. I should go down more often. We had a little trip into town to do some shopping, had a "light lunch" when we go back (the kind of meal I would make me and Yorkie for tea!) and then went visiting. We called in on Colin and Joyce. Colin is my mum's cousin, and just about the only relative she has aside from me. They live near my old high school and I used to go round sometimes after school, but I haven't seen them for years. It was great to see them again. They are both in thier 70's now, but still look so young and so well. They were asking about how I'd been, didn't I look like my mum now I was all grown up, and wanted to know all about Yorkie (I told them the good bits, and missed out the peeing on the kitchen floor, lol) and when were they going to meet him.

After that we went to see mum's soliciter again, and the final stage of the house becoming mine was done. And as of 10 to 4pm on Tuesday 6th Dec 2005 I become the legal owner of my house. All very grown up!

I couldn't stay too long after we got backs to mums' I was hoping to be able to pick Yorkie up from work, and had I been able to safely drive the car at speed on the motorway, I would have made it too, but at 60 mph, it's a long journey! So I had to text him and tell him to get the bus. Had a last coffee at mums and set off. I did manage to get home about 20mins before Yorkie, but I would have been over an hour late to pick him up had he waited.

Lelly and Coops came round about 8 and we curled up to watch Sin City. They loved it and Lelly wants to go and buy it now (It is a good film, I recommend it). After the film Yorkie started to show Coops some of the hack n slash fantasy RPGs we've got on the PS2 and me and Lelly - strangley - sank into eldless stories about cats.... Dunno why. But it seems we have some common ground when it comes to cat stories! I think it had more to do with the fact that neither of us girls were drinking, and we had to talk about something, lol! And maybe the smoke had something to do with it too, who knows.

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
