Getting our vows!

Well, it's arrived! The book with the ceremony in it, with the choices of vows etc in it!

Actually, it arrived on Monday, but I've so ill this week that I haven't had chance to get all hyper about it just yet.

Me and Yorkie have had a flick through it, and there are some bits that we both really like, but we want to have a good long indepth look together so we're waiting till next week before we make any choices because he's got a weeks holiday starting Monday and we can give it our full undivided attention then.

There are spaces within the plan for 3 readings. Mum wants to read a sonet, which means that Dad wants to read someting (heaven forbid that he should be out shone by my mother) which leaves a potential third slot if Yorkie wants anyone to read something, maybe one of his family members, or perhaps Ozz who seems to like doing readings at peoples weddings (he was very good at Ray & Sarah's last year), or anyone else for that matter if Yorkie wants it.

It's just another step towards making this wedding real, looking at vows and mulling over in my head what I want to say. There's always the option of wrtting our OWN vows, which sounds lovely and romantic, but I'm not too sure about actually trying. How embarasing would it be if - under the pressure of the moment - I forgot the vows that I wrote myself!!!

We think we've got the entertainment half sorted, so now we need to find a photographer, and mum wants us to have a videographer too. I assume that one company will be abnle to provide both. The car people have finally got back in touch with mum so that's another thing provisionally booked too.

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
