Lazy week

We've been having a very lazy time of it for the last few days. Well, we've been to town to I can do some of that name changing business, and we've done some washing and cooking and a little bit of tidying and stuff.... but really, not much else.

We thought about starting on 'doing up the house' and got as far as buying picture hooks in Wilkos, and bumping into Olly on B&Q and having a gossip with him rather than buy anything....

The theory IS that we wait for the wedding gift cheques to clear (which wont be until the end of the month, cursed non-checque-clearing-bank-building-socitiy) and then once we have all of that we can totter off to Ikea with cash and cards, find out how much we have on the gift cards (not all had the amounts displayed) and see if we can put the whole lot on a single card.

Yorkie reccons we are not likely to miss one card in many getting lost, but that we would miss a single card if it's the only one. I think he means it's easy to keep track of a single card therefore making sure it wont get lost, because the idea of losing one card with all the wedding presents on scares me to death!

Other than that we have been spending the week killing mosters and assorted bad guys on Guild Wars - which is something we haven't done for MONTHS because with sorting the wedding out we never seemed to have the time for much else, and a lot of stuff had to go on hold. And now we can have it back! Woot!

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
