Soooo tired

Being back at work has it's ups and it's downs. While I like earning money, and the job's pretty ok too what with it's balance of office work and site visits, it's very very tiring...

Monday was a nice normal office day, 8.45 till 5. Yesterday morning I was up at 5am to set off for Leeds by 6am, to be at various sites from 7.30 onwards. I got home at 8.30pm (although I did have an unpaid stop off hour at Mums on the way home). Today I was in the office again by 8.45am, finishing at 5. Tomorrow I get a lie in and don't have to be in the office until 10.30am, although I do have to be in Lytham St Anns at 5pm. Friday I'm site visiting all day (just in Lancaster though, phew).

I will also be back in Leeds every Tuesday morning for the forseeable.

I'm just not used to it!!

That said, it is fun driving about. I was using the Sat Nav for a while which was great - until the battery ran out because I have no cigar lighter in the car to power it up with! I was offered one of the company Belingos to use on Tuesday, but what it being the first time I've driven one and it being such a long day I wasn't happy about it. CHANGED MY MIND! So I've asked for one to use Thu night and Friday and with a bit of luck I'll get one. Then I can use the Sat Nav properly and not get utterly lost!

I am enjoying my new roll at LN, but I am SO tired right now that I could just go straight to bed now and not get up again until 10 tomorrow. I guess it's just a matter of getting back into the swing of things again....

*yawn*

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
