Things that make you smile


I miss having a family. Not that I knock my mum and dad, but I wish I had brothers and sisters. I wish I had a big family, even with the hassle that goes with it. That's why I'm so glad that I get on well with Yorkie's family.
Got this today from his mum:

Dave and I have just come back from the most marvellous holiday we have had in a
long time.

We've had a fantastic weekend, being wined, dined and
entertained. And the entertainment ranges from Ceilidh (can't spell it) and
disco, to pool, spa, sauna, and games room. Not to mention the
treasure hunt (which we won!).

My proposition is that I would
like to share this with you, all the people that I love.

I know
it's a bit early to start talking about Christmas 2006, but this is one of those
things that has to be sorted early.

Rather than doing the
Christmas thang, I thought we might do Hogmanay instead, which will be Saturday
30 until Tuesday 2nd.

The venue is The Angus Hotel, in
Blairgowrie, Perthshire, where it snows a bit, but not too much. About five
hours drive from Bozer.

A bit nearer for Mark and Charlie (we waved
at them as we went past!).

I would like to give this to you as your
Christmas Present for 2006.

If it's not what you want, that's
OK.

Whichever way, please let me know your feelings soon, so I know
whether I'm booking for just me and Dave, or the whole blooming tribe ;
)

I really would like to do this, for all of us.

love
to you all

And later this from Bob:

Ho do? I'm resending this cos my mail seems determined that it's not sent (and
it's not responding to the usual abuse).
Thanks to the pair of you for the
game, it's fecking awesome!
Chaar are reight hard and they are, on a regular
basis, handing it out to me something rotten.
I go by the name of Lenith
Skyrunner should either of you catch me when I'm online (that being whenever I'm
at home).
And can you explain to my bruvva that mum is a bit mental (assuming
you've read the email regarding christmas 06).
Anyhoo, i think that about
sums it up again,
Take care,
-Bob

Things like this make me happy... Really happy. Daft, isn't it! But I feel included, which is very important to me. Especially since they are going to be my in-laws.
Did I mention that his family contact me now, rather than him! Difference being I check my emails and reply to them! LOL!

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
