Stresses of working!

Been a wee bit busy again just of late. I am KNACKERED the WHOLE TIME!

Right now I have to submit my accounts to Companies House - No idea what I'm doing with that but hopefully Jenny will find a few minutes to run through it all with me soon. I have until Boxing Day I know, but as I have it now I want to sort it now.

I also have to somehow drag my P45 and P60 from MM, who should have issued it back in the first week of April LAST YEAR but didn't and with out it I cannot sort out the self assesment which is apparently out standing with the tax office for 2004-2005 (nice of them to let me know LAST WEEK!) Glenn didn't really want to speak to me about it and Jane is on holiday so isn't there to sort it out anyway. I'm only being fined £100.00 over this cock up!

On top of all that I am supposed to be reading up my college text books ready for the start of the class on Oct 1st.

I'm feeling the pressure, and I'm not the only one. Yorkie is going though similar stresses at his work too, again down to the serious lack of management skills that - as I have said before - seem to be rife in this area. However, for him and the others who work there, things might be looking up as they have had someone "official" come round and interview all the staff about the state of the business, the management, and all things related. Needless to say there were many grumblings about the bosses, and about the "general manager" who clearly does NOTHING at great expence to the business.

Lucky, things at home are much nicer. I am now managing to put aside all things work during non-work times - such as the rare days when neither Yorkie or I have to go out to work, which are about 4 days a month - and the evenings that I am not expected to go trapsing about the local area with my Avon orders. We are managing to spend some good "quality time" togther at last, which makes for two much happier bunnies!

When we're not working that is!

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
