Red Head!

Here's me with my new red hair!

I like being a red head and I do it from time to time. This is the fourth time I have gone ginger! And this time it's pretty much the colour I wanted!

First time was a 1 day wash in wash out effort when I was about 13 on holiday and you could hardly see it

Second time I was about 15 using a tempory wella mouse thing and while I looked brilliant while I was keeping it up, it turned my hair pink when i tried to wash it out

Third time I was 18 at Uni and I had all my lovely long hair chopped off, dyed copper with gold streaks, but it came out bright orange with yellow stripes and I looked like a fat version of the girl from Fifth Element.

This time I used the same dye kit I use for my blonde hair but in this Morello Cherry with Copper Red. I wish I had put a few more streeks in it, but i was a little shy of getting it horribly wrong. I shouldn't have worried, I have been blonding up my naturally dark blond hair with this stuff for years and I know what I'm doing, so when my grey roots show next I'll be buying it again and enjoying the highlights a bit more.

haven't had chance to show it off yet though, as we DIDN'T go to Oz's birthday curry (shock horror) but I'm off down to Jacquies for the Bon Jovi concert soon so I can show it off then can't I?

Hummmm.... Must go shopping for red-head fashions!

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
