Our Anniversary!!!!


Yes ladies and gents, as of today Yorkie and I have been together for 5 whole years, and have been engaged for one of them!

It seems like no time at all, and yet at the same time, like I've known him all my life. Strange, isn't it? But very very nice!!!

Yorkie's got the day off work today, so first thing this morning I gave him my gift - David Gilmore CD he's been after ever since he first heard about it months ago - and them we headed into town to do the shopping for my gift.... I lovely long pic-nic lunch in the Trough of Bowland!

I've been begging Yorkie to come and have a pic-nic with me for years! I love pic-nics but know he's not keen. He bought a cool box, some coolers to put in it, a range of sandwich fillers, snacks, dips, and fruit juices, packed up the lunch and off we went!

It's such a lovely day too, so warm and hardly any breeze at all! We found a nice spot by a stream, far enough away from the sheep to eat out sandwiches without having them pilfered by the food snaffling wooley ones, munched, sunbathed and chattered. we stayed out for a good couple of hours before it started to get too hot, and then we had a drive round and stopped at the Jubilee Tower for some photos and then came back home.

He's also bought a stack of DVDs and some PC games for us both (inc another Sims mini expansion just for me! Weee!), we had thought about going out for dinner, but with still half the pic nic stuff to wade through we thought we might as well stay in - and to be honest, we could have dinner out any time. It's not often he gets a day off work on a sunny day and actually wants to go outside for fun (he's in the elements all day every day at work) so to me the pic-nic was more important and more impressive than any restraunt meal!

We're both having a quick play with our new games, and then we're settling in for a cozy night of movies and snuggling! Bliss!

Good for you two. It's funny when you're in a good relationship. You can't really think of time before them. Good news on the pic-nic. I love them as well. I don't know what it is about eating outside, but it's spectacular. Happy 5th and enjoy many many more you two.

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
