Stuff for Tara's Hen Night

Weerrrrr the colours a bit off on that photo!

So this is part of my get-up for Saturday Night and Tara's hen night.

She's having a Titanic themed murder mystery night and we're all going dressed as flappers!

I've got myself a (rather dodgy) short black wig (which is giving me a serious headache trying to keep on over my long hair), a headband with feathers, some big red beads and matching bracelet.

I've raided my wardrobe for loose fitted long back top, and a two layered mid-calf white skirt with floral print, which togther with the beads are close enough for me! I draw the line at fringe!

Although, right now, I am stuffed full of a cold. A nasty one at that. The back of my throat is red raw, my nose it stuffed up and snotty, my sinouses are killing me and I keep sneezing. I spent all of yesterday sleeping on the settee in the frount room (with the exception of Darren calling round for a few mins to pick some stuff up for his kids, and for the Big Brother eviction / re-admission, oh, and to ferry Yorkie about as usual). I've been living off toast and soup - which is quite nice but not good for my wasit line.

But I'm a bit clearer of head today - hence to shopping trip this morning and this post now, so with a bit of luck come Saturday I'll be fit and well.

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
