Gutted :O(

So no more world cup for us then...

*sniff*

And what a way to go too... penalties with Beckham, Owen AND Rooney out of the game. Sad. Very very sad.

Other than that the weekends been good. I went for lunch with Jen and Lelly on Friday afternoon - followed by a trip to the park with Adam to play on the swings, and then round to Frans for the evening for a girly night. Sarah, Jill and Tara were there too, and poor Simon had been banished to the bedroom, but couldn't resist coming down to join us after a bit. On Saturday the boys congrated at Ray and Sarahs house, and the girls at Jill and Garys house (with baby Morgan) and watched the football separatly (who knows why). Fran started off with the boys but got board and came over to us.

It's boiling hot here though, over 30 degrees, and we're baking! Jen's Adam seems to be taking it in his stride now with his paddling pool and stuff, but poor Morgan is suffering for the heat. And other than dress him lightly, keep him well hydrated and cool as possible by a fan there's not much can be done for him.

Mum came over to see me yesterday too to go through some more wedding stuff with me and generally get out and about for a bit. It's not often she's had a sunday off work, and John's working long shifts on a sunday at the moment so she was a bit lonely and fed up. And I love mum coming over!

I'm feeling a little lonely myself today now though. Yorkie had Fri and Sat off work, but I've hardly seen him. I've spent the last 3 days with loads of people and seen just about everyone (Including Mark & Gemma fleetingly as they get ready to go on holiday, and even Roger from Gaia!) and now I'm sat here alone with just the cat and Big Brother to keep me company...

Maybe I'll get some work done today though! Hee hee hee!

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
