Hard Graft

I've not been well. Really really not been well. I have some kindof horrible cold virus which I was dealing with well enough until Friday, when I lost the hearing in my left ear. Which still has not come back (with the exeption of about 25min yesterday morning when it came back to tease me) .

Iam full of flem and nastiness, I can't sleep in bed for coughing and have been sleeping on the settee propped up to stop myself from drowning on the green lumpy slime that seems to have built up in side me.

It's nasty.....

But I still have a living to make, and no sick pay coming, so I have had to keep on working. I took Saturday off and on sunday made the mistake of checking my emails.... SO MUCH WORK HAD BACKED UP! So I had a new reason for not being able to sleepand started slugging away in the early evening.

I finished half an hour ago (oh, and I did get a couple of hours sleep in too).

The one thing that took the most time, and which I am fairly proud of, is the "fashion show" for Leeds Bridal Village. Click here. I'm not saying it's a perfect bit of work... it's huge and takes longer to load than I would like, but right now I can't afford the software I need to convert it into a smaller file format. But I enjoy it now it's done.

I just hope my client likes it too!

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
