Having to be grown up

*Sulk*

Some things about being a proper grown up.... I NO like!

Last night I took out my nipple bar for the last time. I've had that piercing for around 10 years and it's been one of my favs. But it is hardly suitable for someone who will be breastfeeding in the next few weeks. It's not safe or hygienic for baby, and will most likely get in Wiggles way when trying to feed anyway. Plus I doubt it would fit in the expressor when I come to going back to work - not without getting jammed and causing me to make an embarrassing trip to A&E...

So it's gone.

Sure... I could get it re-done once Wiggle is off the boob, but if we're going to have more children - and lets face it, we probably are - it's just a waist.

It's not really a big deal, it's only jewellery after all. But it's also one step away from the kid I was and one step closer to the responsible adult I'm going to have to be. It's taken me more than 2 weeks from being told I would have to remove it to actually getting round to doing it.

I wonder how fast it will heal? I have images in my mind of milk coming out of the sides of the nipple now better that the tip!

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
