Flu...

I have spent the last few days feeling like utter death! It started on Sunday really, It started to cough a little bit while me and Fay were watching Dad fly. Just a small cough, a bit of a sore throat. By the time I'd got back home to Lancaster I was feeling pretty grotty and have been getting steadily worse since.

Monday night I couldn't stand to be in our bed any more. I needed space to move, I needed to be close to a constant supply of drinks and tissues so I went down stairs and fell asleep on the settee. I've been either on the settee or the futon ever since.

On wednesday I had a appointment with a chap from Computeach. Yorkie was insisting that I was "too sick" (but as he seemed to think I was perfectly well enough to ferry him about, do the shopping, keep the house spotless while he turned it into a shit tip around me, I told him to fuck off). I had the meeting and learned that I don't have 5 grand to spend on a class which will treat me like an idiot for the first 6 months while teaching me what I already know, and provide me with student edition softwear I don't need because I already have the full professional version. I also desided that I was too sick to do the usual ferrying and ass wiping I normally do for his lordship when he can't "remember" to buy my lemsips or tissues.

He went out on Wednesday night, even though it was his day off on Wednesday not Thursday, and sure enough he came home at 1.30 am fucked out of his head, argumentative, verbally abusive, and all the rest. It came as a bit of a shock to him in the morning when I refused to drive him to work and sent him off for the bus. He was home again in under 20 min unable to get his shit together. He'll get his ass kicked at work today because he didn't even tell him he wasn't coming in.

Can you believe that it's my fault he got so drunk on Wednesday? It's my fault because he didn't have anything to eat ALL DAY on wednesday. Hummmm, well, lets see, yes, we were BOTH at home ALL DAY, and we do have some food in, only because I was ASLEEP ALL DAY BECAUSE I HAVE FLU he didn't eat. Therefore MY FAULT.

You know what? I didn't eat either, because every time I tried to move I threw up all the biel that was filling up my tum while I slept. Funny how that doesn't inspire hunger or an urge to cook isn't it! Infact I haven't eaten at all between tea at Dad's on Sunday night, and last night when I "informed" Yorkie that he would be cooking.

On the up side though we do now have some central heating at long last. I think realising that I am actually ILL (and not pathetic "man sick" where fellers think they are dying because they sneezed once) and that means he has to look after himself, so he got a plummer out and paid for the pump fixing. Voila! Heat! Shame it had to wait until Thursday for him to get a guy round when he got paid on Monday. But then, I was still wiping his ass for him in Monday.

I'm a fucking soft touch though. Because I have slept now almost solidly from Sunday evening til today I am feeling much better. I've been living off lemsips (which I had to buy the first two lots of) and nothing else. I'm still sick, I can't face the idea of much food, and can't taste anything anyway. My heads still stuffy and I am a walking snot factory, but at least I am walking. So I've had a bath and got dressed. But it's snowing outside (on March 3rd! Insane) so I've got a message to my ungreatful wretch of an other half and told him I will come and pick him up so he doesn't have to get the bus home in the snow.

I should make him fucking WALK!

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
