In the office

So I made it in to the office today - just in time after driving down from the Marina - and was set to work on the phones and PC. I seem to have forgotten even simple phone etiquette! Like asking who is calling before I forward a call! DOH! I'm sure that's just nerves though and I'll get back into the swing of it in no time. I seem to be OK with the rest of it so far though, getting the hang of the filing systems and finding my way round the computer files too (once the server let me in, it hates me, that server!) to order stock, process forms and documents etc. I finished just after 5pm so that's a good 5 hours under my belt without upsetting anyone (I hope).

Seems to have gone well though. I have a position in the office now. Better rate of pay (just more than Yorkie actually) so I should be able to get everything else back on track, like paying mum back for the loans for the wedding and hen night, clearing my credit card, putting money back into the savings account and overdraft rather than living off them! And there is a chance of moving up again once I've proved myself and got some more experience.

It'll be nice to be in an office job again. I've missed it. But at the same time, I'm going to really miss going out on the cleans (can you imagine that?!) or at least I'll miss the people I clean for anyway. That said, there's no reason why I can't call in and see them anyway.

I've needed this little lift after the weekend. It feels strange knowing I'll never see Nan again. Mainly, I think, because I didn't see that much of her before hand. There are going to be times when it hits me badly, like her Birthday in August, and Christmas. Not to mention the wedding, even though she wouldn't have been well enough to come anyway. Dad seems to be handling him self well. He's on the phone with is sisters a lot supporting them. I asked him who was supporting him, but it's not like he's alone. He's got Fay, and they're coming over to England next week anyway. Sad thing now though, is that the crem has a backlog, and it could take up to a fortnight before the funeral can be held. Which means I may miss it as I'll be on honeymoon. I've been reassured by dad that it won't happen on the wedding day itself. The last thing Nan would want is for that day to be ruined. But I want my chance to say good bye, and I want to be there with my dad when it happens.

I hope all went well for the wedding and that you guys are having a smashing honeymoon. I'm sure your Nan was there for the wedding and smiling throughout. I'll bet that was her way of making sure she'd be there, otherwise she would have missed it.

I can't wait to see some pics and hear all about it. All the best to you and Yorkie!

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

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
