UESLESS CONTRACTORS!

Really and truely!!! Useless!!!

Doesn't help that this morning Yorkie and I woke up in no fit state to go to work, although we both had too. bank holidays do not apply to gardeners or cleaners you see... Drove him to work for 8.30 and then stopped off at the local supermarket (which thanks to the bank holiday didn't open till 9) for some cheap t-shirts I wouldn't mide wrecking with bleach and other cleaning fluids, and to get some energy drinks. Needless to say I did not relish the thought of spending a hung over morning up to my elbow in someone elses toilets!

Rolled into the Club's carpark a little before 10am and started searching for my supplies. And guess what... they aren't there!

The boss was dealing with a customer, and I couldn't see the usual shop lady (I don't know anyone's names yet) so I went up to the second office to collectmy keys and speak to the secretery to see if she knew where my supplies were. Clearly only the boss was in today so I gthered my keys, double checked every where my supplies might have been stored to no avail and went to ask him if he knew anything about them.

They hadn't been delivered!

So I called the contractors and no one was in. It seems that they don't have to work bank holidays! I wonder now if I was expected to be in after all???

So I did the same as I did on Thursday, working the best I can with what I've got, and when I got home i tried calling again. A foreign girl (Polish?) informed me that no one was in on bank holidays!!!

Shall try again tomorrow! And then I'LL GO DOWN AND GET THE DAMN STUFF MYSELF!

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
