Up swing

Yesterday got better almost from the time I clicked on "publish post". Before I had even pushed my chair away from my desk my mobile was ringing. It never rings. Occasionally Dad calls me on it, but from France that tends to cost a bit, so I was a little suprised.

It wasn't dad. It was someone booking an Ann Summers party for next week! Hooray!

This gave me the kick up the backside that I needed. I had to go through my Ann Summers kit and remove the stuff from the old catalogue that has been discontinued (New nighty for me! Hooray!) and jot down all the stuff from the new catalogue that I want adding to it. Problem is though, that anything I order now wont turn up until the day AFTER the party, so I ended up having to fork out for special delivery so that I have it in time. After all, I can't hold a party with the old stock and catalogues, half the stuff that might sell will be unavailable!!! But it'll be worth it.

I did go out with the Avon books, and actually caught my only remining un-paid customer at home where she thrust the £6.00 for her order into my hand smilling broadly. And I didn't expect to catch her in until Thursday.

And I had my bath (2 hours long... bliss)

But I've had to rearrange going over to see mum - again. Because I had to get my Ann Summers stuff by courier I had to be in on Thursday to accept it. So I called mum and re-arranged going to see her, which I felt guilty about AGAIN, and told Yorkie I was staying here and that I WOULD be able to collect him from work tonght after all (so he didn't take any bus fare) and guess what turns up this morning instead..... *fume*

Still, at least I have it, and I have some extra catalogues that I can add to the hostesses party pack ready for dropping through her letter box on the way home from picking Yorkie up. I was going to give her the only one I had and take the rest round on the night, but this works out much better. Sadly it's too late now to go over to mums tonight. But I'm going over next week now instead.

I'm feeling better all in all, not brilliant, but better. I think I'm just tired today.

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
