Urghhhh! "Keeper"


Right, I just saw this advertised on TV, and I am feeling quite ill now! I guess it serves me right for having Big Brother Live on the telly while I sit here tapping away on the keys of the laptop.

The "keeper" is an environmentaly friendly alternative to sanitary towels and tampons.

It is a rubber cup you shove up yourself during your period, then wash and put away till next time.

You can keep it for upto 10 years.

Don't believe me?? Check out the site! http://www.femin.co.uk/?pageid=119&ItemCategoryID=4000

Personally I can see SERIOUS problems with this, starting with it simply being grim, and ending in the serious risk of Toxic Shock. I mean, how can you be sure it's clean? Put it in the dish washer?? I am happy in the thought that tampons are cotton and will bio-degrade!

Bring back the adverts for NADS for women!

Much more savory to think about Ingrow Cream for NADS















(sorry that should be "from NADS")

Sorry but that just seems wrong. Your body is trying to unload that stuff for a reason no?

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
