Jacs & Leigh

Made the mistake of not taking my camera today. Really should have done, Mia and Caitlin are getting more beautiful every time I see them!

Had a lovely day with Jacquie. I got there late, partly because after dropping Yorkie at work I had to go home again because I had forgotten Jacquie's Ann Summers order, and partly because once I got to Warrington I got lost - again. It's somethingof a tradition now, but at least I only took a wrong turn TWICE this time, I think I'll get it right next time, lol!

It started off being a beautiful day, sun shinning and all that, so we walked into town with Mia in the pram and enjoyed the sun. Naturally, I got burned. Don't I always! After a quick look round town we meet up with a work friend of Jac's called Leigh who is coming to the Bon Jovi concert with us next month. She seems really nice and we got on pretty well, even managed to avoid those awkward silences when Jacs wasn't with us.

We had lunch at a Weatherspoons (which was piss poor really, but cheap enough)... and then the thunder storm stared! With Jacquie and Leigh is summery flowing clothes, and me in a vest top. Oops! Still, despite the fact that the rain was VERY hard and VERY wet (not that missle stuff that just gets you damp, PROPER rain!) we had a laugh and managed to get round a few of the shops. I've bought some shoes that look like they've been knitted! So horrible that they were BRILLAINT and only 3 pounds too! Then we ducked into a wedding dress shop and had a look at some bridesmaid dresses for the girls and me to wear at Jacs wedding. I tried on one dress which was STUNNING, but at £220 is would have to be! We're going to keep looking!

As it was still chucking it down we got the bus back to Jacquies house and browed the web together until David came home with Caitlin, and we went out for lunch to the local brewers fair (Much better grub than the weatherspoons, lol). Caitlin came in my car with me and nattered none stop there and back, but you godda love her! She went through all the CDs I have in the car and choose one to play... she choose Sissor Sisters! Very impressed! And she sang along. Wouldn't have thought it was something a 6 year old would have been into! But there you go, it's down to the good upbringing you know, hee hee hee.

I was pretty gutted when it came to saying good bye again, but I am SO far behind with my work this week already that I just didn't dare stay the night. Plus I still need to keep an eye on my wayward feller, who seems incapable of feeding him self if I'm not there to cook for him (although that said he had actually grilled himself some basic food by the time I got in, bless!)

Probably be a bit quiet fora few days now, having work pile up, and next to no money to show for what I have done it getting me down a bit, so I'm going to get some hard work done, and get some sleep and see if I can clear my head. The excess amount of booze in my system probably isn't helpping matters either so crawling into my shell for a bit should do me good.

Laters people!

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
