Wrong shade of Ivory!

Who's have thought it? How many shades of ivory are there?? My shoes and handbag are JUST a shade or two darker than the dress!!!!

Now, to be honest, I couldn't care less. I think you would have to be looking pretty damn close at my feet to notice the difference in the shades, although Fay and the dress-maker were making it out to be an utter desaster, asking if I wanted to exchange the shoes, which I don't. OK, so the handbag is more visable to the avaerage punter than the shoes under my dress, but it's not like I'm going to be carrying it every where with me. I wont be using it in the ceremony, it wont be in the wedding photos, just keeping my bits and bobs in it for the evening do.... So I don't care that when you look close you can see a difference. Shesh! I'd end up having to take a scrap of dress to all the shoe shops with me, and I really don't want to be that obsessive!

So with that sorted out we went ahead with the dress measurements and hoop sizes and all maner of other stuff i don't mind amitting I didn't understand.

I was asked what style of embroidery I wanted on the dress (shows what I know, I thought it was just what was on the dress I tried on, but it seems I can choose a different one). I showed them the photo of the celti ring that me and Yorkie like - the angula one - and asked if that could be incorperated into the embroidery and they seem to think that it should be ok. That would be great! If I manage to get the same design as the rings onto the dress.... how lovely would that be? OK, so only me and Yorkie woul really know, but I think that would be quite special!

I should get "my design" through the post in a few days, so I'll scan it in and show you all. Don't worry, Yorkie doesn't view this blog so he wont be seeing the dress! I just want to share it with you all!

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
