God Mother!

Last weekend was the baptism of Caitlin & Mia, and I officially became Caitlin's God Mother! It was a shame that Yorkie couldn't go, and both girls were asking for him and wanting to know where he was. Mia insisted that I make him come to her 'next christening'... How many is she planning on having? Still, with a bit of luck he'll make it to Caitlin's confirmation in May.

Both girls looked lovely though and where great during the service. Mia got a little stressed at being held like a baby so that she could have the water on her head, especially since Caitlin got to just stand on a step and lean over the font instead.

I've never been to a Catholic baptism before, and even though I was 10 at my own CofE baptism I don't really recall much about it. It was fun though, like Jacs said, you get to renounce Satan, and the girls were exorcised too! Even the priest accepted that this was something to giggle about, and has nothing to do with the girls potential for being possessed (rats).

The godparents where Daves two sisters, Jacs brother and sister, Daves bestest bud, and me as Jacs best mate. One of Dave's sisters was so late that she missed half the service and almost missed out all together, and I was maybe a liiiitle bit worried about Mia waving her baptism candle about the place before she got to blow it out. Taffeta doesn't take much to burst into flame! Still, she was good and nothing terrifying happened.

Got some nice photos of the day and when I get chance I'll post them up.

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
