Silent Hill Saturday

Yorkie has the weekend off, and just for once, we're DOING STUFF!

HOOOOORAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Mark called up on Friday night asking if Yorkie wanted to do anything that didn't involve a pub (this is shocking - normally they only ever see each other in the boozer!) so they made plans for the four of us (me and yorkie, mark and gemma) to go to the cinema and watch the Silent Hill movie on saturday. (this too is stunning as I have been begging yorkie to go to the cinema with me for months to not avail).

So Sat morning I drove into town on the hunt for a multi-tap for the playstation so that me, yorkie and mark could play multiplayers until gemma finished work, and i was to collect mark from sainsbury's while I was there. Foolishly I ended up buying a multi-tap that was PS2 "slimline" only.... soit didn't work. Not my fault! The box just said PS2, the"slimline only" was in small print on the back of the box, so I forfit my gameplay and baked instead like a good little housewife (grum grum grum).

About 4 or 5 ish I drove mark back into town to meet gemma, take her home and wait for her to get changed ready to come back to ours for a take-away pre movie. She whinged. We ignored her.

Back to ours for more gameplay, and takeaway curry, and then we were off!

And I have to say..... if you have every played the Silent Hill games you will LOVE this movie! If you haven't..... give it a miss. I wont make any sence.

There are bits that scared the shit out of me though, like early on in movie where the lead-lady is being chased - and caught - by zombie/daemon/lava babies, all screaming, mewling, clawing, mutant children.... a swarm of them that catch her and drag her to the ground.... weeerrrrrr! not nice!

Wonderful things though, like Konami have played a huge part in the making of the movie. The monsters are straight from the game play, the zombie nurses are there, Pyramid Head is there, it switches between generally scarry to out and out horrific at the sound of the siran.... It truely is the game brought to the screen.

If you thought Resident Evil was good, you aint seen nothing yet!

I can't wait to see it if only to see where in town they filmed. We had a few building in our city used in the film.

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
