KIDS!

YAY! How much fun have I had this weekend??? And HOW MANY KIDS!

This is doing my brooding no good at all!

Jacquie and David called in for lunch on Friday on their way to a camping trip at Millom with Caitlin and Mia. Mia is coming on in leaps and bounds. It's scarry to think it's only been a few weeks since I say them all last and I swear Mia has grown several inches, and she's stringing sentaneces togther now too. Sadly, Caitlin is feeling a little left out and is kicking up a fuss, but she's still my little princess, and she knows mummy ans daddy still love her too. Ahhh!

On Saturday Jill and Tara organised a "pub lunch" up by Tara and Colin's. So the three of us girls, our fellers (Yorkie's had the weekend off too), and Jill & Gary's baby Morgan toddled up to the pub around 2.30 / 3.00 to find the pub shut until 5pm! So pub lunch became pub tea and we didn't finish getting served until closer to 9.30 (no oil in the frier, no chef, and new bar staff that didn't know what they were doing all contributed to lousy service, lol). Morgan is getting huge now too, and has started to hold his own bottle! I got to have a nice long cuddle and play before he got hungry and tired and had to be taken home (boo!)

And today Jen came over with Adam for lunch, a whole roasted chicken from Asda, loads of salad and more crisps than anyone knew what to do with - which is good as crisps are Adam's most favourite thing in the while wide world! Yorkie was feeling rough from the dodgy ham at the pub the night before, so me and Jen went to the park with Adam for a bit so he could play on the swings, and we introduced him to the roundabout... which he didn't care for much. He loves to go fast, and he's not old enough to figure out he needs to grap on tight to the roundabout before anyone can make it fun for him. So we stuck to the swings.

I'm feeling a bit low now they have all gone, and taken their children with them. *sniff*. Can't wait until me and Yorkie have some of our own. Tomorrow we'll be a step closer though, we're off to give notice on the wedding, and forking out £30.00 each for the privarlage (well, Yorkie's paying for both of us as I am brassic) so that means we're that bit closer to getting wed, and then to starting our own family.

*GRIN*

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
