The Sun's Come Out

And - suprisingly - my mood has lifted, regardles of the fact that like a muppet yesterday I clean forgot all about my docs apt and didn't go (DOH!)

Other than the glorious sunshine that has been today things have been rather good. Within 10 minutes of my starting work as the Yacht club today a lady come up to me and complimented me on my work, saying that before I started the facilities had been "a bit grotty" and that now the "posivitvly sparkle!" and then went on to say how people take cleanliness for granted, and that they should appricate the hard work we do (Insert big grin and much thanks from myself).

Shortly after, another patron called over to me: "You're doing a grand job!"

So my ego was swelled, and I felt appriciated.

It get's better...

Before I had finished even half the customer facilites my mobile rang and it was someone from head office who was bringing my supplies and out standing paper work, but who was lost! So I directed her to the club and (on the second attempt) got all my re-stocks and my file with all the stuff in I need to have (for what ever reasons they think I should have them). I showed her round the areas I work on, and explained what I did on which days and why. Then she offered me MORE HOURS!

Of cause I said yes!

There are two jobs, both on the other side of where Yorkie works (so miles away from where I am working now), but if I can work it so that I go from one job right to the next I get a fuel allowance (yay).

One of them I might not be able to do, it depends if they are willing to alter the hours to suit me (how cool is that?) and it as a charity shop just in the next town to where Yorkie works. Hopefully they will be ok with me starting in time for me to finish at 5.30 so I can pick him up right ater work. We'll have to wait and see on that one.

The other sounds good. It's at a campsite just further up the road from where Yorkie works, 2 hours a day, two days a week, Monday and Thursday. Now, on a Monday I'm working at the Yacht club, so I'll be finishing there and driving right up to the Campsite (and get my fuel allowence). Thursday's a bit of a bummer, as I have just changed working at the Club on a Thu for a Fri, BUT if that other job works out, I can go right from the campsite to the shop, and THEN go and pick Yorkie up...

You know, life would be a LOT easier if Yorkie could drive and we could afford to both have a car. But as that AINT gonna happen...

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
