Brave little man!

He's 8 weeks old today, which means a trip to the docs for some of his jabs and a once over to make sure he's ok.

He's been well behaved all morning, even letting me get washed, dressed and hair brushed without too much fuss. He went in his car seat and into the car without howling, and was wake but quiet all the way to the docs. It's cooler today so I had him dressed in his jeans and shirt, but the waiting room was a sauna so he whinged a little then until I took his shirt off. Once in with the doc he was good as she checked all his 'little boy bits' to make sure he was 'complete' (and he is).

I was so proud as I sat at the docs desk and tucked him up close to my body for a snuggle. And then it happened. Two injections! One in each leg!

My god did he scream! Cried until he was sick!

They make you hold your baby down while it's being done. He was looking me right in eyes when he was jabbed. I swear they make you hold them like that less to stop them form wriggling and more to stop you from lamping the doc for hurting your child!

Back into the waiting room from that and a well deserved comforting feed for poor little Jack - who then filled his nappy to near overflowing. His idea of revenge I'm sure because it honked! So I changed him there and then too - let the smell woft around a bit for him

He was silent all the way home.

I feel rotten.

Lots of cuddles for him when he wakes 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
