Days of monotany

I'm a seriously fed up wee lassie. My days are just running into one another with little to no differnce between them.

It's my own fault. I knew that starting a home business as my one and only employment would cause problems like this, although I thought I would handle it better.

My days have fallen into one single format - with the only exception being Yorkie's days off work, and Sundays when I ferry Yorkie round at different times.

  • 7am, get up have a wee and a wash.
  • 7.15am, power up the PCs and check all my emails
  • 8am, drive Yorkie to work
  • 9am, call in at post office on way home and post off orders, or get home and do quick housework jobs
  • 9.30, check emails again, reply where nessessary, send of required responces
  • 10am, start work on web sites and eBay
  • 12pm, remember that I have missed breakfast and that's why I'm starving. Have lunch at my desk (why?? I'm at HOME!).
  • 12.30, return to work - or if work is done for the day, play sims
  • 5pm, collect Yorkie from work
  • 6pm, arrive home and prepare snack and a coffee for Yorkie
  • 6.30, check emails
  • 7pm, either: do avon rounds, bake bread, or have an hour playing computer games with Yorkie
  • 8pm, cook and serve dinner, clean kitchen
  • 9pm, return to playing games with Yorkie with a glass of red wine (for my health and circulation, ahem)
  • 10pm, go to bed ("snuggle" or watch a movie or read, or combination of) and go to sleep
THAT'S MY LIFE!

Notice things that are missing? Like going to they gym, which I used to love, and the sauna, which was perfect "me time", or like chatting with friends, or shopping, or going to the salon, or countless millions of other things that 20-something girls do for fun.....

I'm not saying that I don't do ANYTHING else, because that's not true. Sometimes I have a Friday Pub Lunch with friends, sometimes we have a few people round or go to visit them.... But sometimes it feels like my life is just so monotanous. Sometimes the only way I know what day it is when I get up in the morning is by which day my Pill packet is on.

I need to get myself sorted out!

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
