Periods and butt-lumps!

Went to the docs this morning to get back onto the pill, and to sort out a "problem with my bum". I got there a couple of mins late because the parking in Lancaster is SO bad that I had to drive round the carparks twice before I could find a space! Once I got into the Docs there was a que at reception, so by the time I got to the desk I was about 10 mins late. As I was waiting my doc dashed past and into another docs room..... I didn't think too much about it other than "oh, I'm late, but he's clearly busy anyway so I would have been waiting regardless". I went up to the waiting room and was sat there for three quaters of an hour! Feeling a little paraonoid I thought this was unfair punishment for being a few mins late. he hadn't come past me so I knew I hadn't just been bumped down the list as he wasn't treating any of his other paitents either.

Eventully he did come darting up the stairs and into his room where he called me promptly. It seems there had been some very serious problem / difficulty with another paitent which had required most of the doctors to be present..... Worrying.... And then I felt guilt for tapping my foot in the waiting room too.

So I explained that I had been off the Depo jab for a few weeks now, and that I wanted to go onto the pill as whn we get married next year we want to start a family and blah blah blah... Which he was great about ( I would like to point out that my Doc is BRILLIANT!). He told me all about folic acid and so on, and took a (huge) sample of my blood to test my amunity to German Measels and Rubella and such.

Then I told him about my "problem with my bum", you see in the last couple of months or so I have noticed a fleshy something on the edge of my bumhole (sorry to be grim) and its been worrying me as nothing I applied to it has made it any smaller, or drop off, or ANYTHING. So I had to drop my kecks and lie on the table while he took a look. Very embarasing!

Turns out that it is a Fisher Centinal Flesh Tag (spelling?). Basically, at some point I have split the skin round my bum, and this skin tag has grown to "protect" it from happening again, which it might if I ever let myself get constipated. I could have it removed, but due to "it's location" it would only get infectd and get worse... So I have to leave it as it is! URGH!

But let's face it (or not...) who is ever going to see it? It's not a part of your body you tend to show people, right? Even Yorkie didn't know about it until I pointed it out (well, I had to know what it looked like so I could get an idea of what it was and how to treat it!!!! And if you can't ask your hubby, who can you ask?)

OK, thats it. Grim stuff over for one day. You don't really need to know about my menstral cycle and bum-tags do you?

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


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
