Seeing people

Pretty good day all things considered. Daz came round in the morning to have a look at Yorkie's PC. He stayed for about 2 hours, had a couple of coffee's, got a LOT of attention from the cat who seems to have fallen in love with him, and D managed to do an impressive head dive off the end of the futon in the front room, having miss-judged the edge of it, and ended up in the cat bed!

He couldn't get it to work right either, so has taken it away to have a better fiddle with it. The fan's knackered we know that much, and I guess that means something will have over heated and blown somewhere. Great! Just hope D can get it working again. I realyy don't want to be forking out for another PC, I've only just finished paying for this one!

Also showed D my games workshop models that I've been working on to get his opinion on who my painting is coming on. He was realitivly impressed, considering I've not been doing it for long, and there is definatly room for improvment. He mentioned maybe sorting out some of is magic wash mix for me so I can get my colour washed down right.

Managed to get on with a bit of work in the afternoon, and finally sorted out the problem I've been having with my FTP program on our one functioning PC so I can actually update my business site.

At about 3.30 I went off to the Greaves to meet Debs for a coffee. She'd had to come into Lancaster for an "appointment" which finished about then, and wanted to have a natter and scrounge a lift back to work while I picked Yorkie up. Ever willing to have a free coffee and a gossip I agreed to the lift.

That's one girl who's been having a shit time of it! She's being going to counciling, and seems to be ashemed of that which she shouldn't. Getting yourself help means you're on the way to getting better! She's finding it so hard to still have to work with Simon and see him almost every day after they way they split up and the miscarriage, and from what she's been saying it sounds like Simon's acting very childishly. He seems to be pretending that none of the bad stuff went on, even to the point were he's blanking out the entire realtionship they had. This is all because he's got back together with his ex. It doesn't help that he told Debs afterwards that she was just a "stop-gap"
I can see things from both points of view. Debs is understandably crushed and screwed up, and I can see why Simon is running away and burying his head. But I can also see that Debs is at least trying to make things right. She can't stand him now, but she's pleasent to him in work (although she hates her self for being "two-faced" about it) and you have to be when you work together. Simon's not being quite so nice about it. Instead of being sorry for messing her about, offering her support after the miscarriage, or trying to at least be friendly, he's avoiding her and discussing the "mind games" she's allegedly playing with other people at the garden centre, telling people who's "winning" at the moment, and moving out of the house they were all but sharing and getting rid of her stuff without telling her or asking her to pick it up, silly stuff like that.
It makes me realise how lucky I am to have Yorkie.

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
