Jack's 2 months old today

And driving us bonkers.

We're all ill. What ever cold bug Jack picked up while we were away this weekend has been passed on to us all. The whole house is filled with snot. Our throats are sore, I'm loosing my hearing, and poor little Jack can't settle at all. His cries are not helping our headaches either.

Di from worked popped in today to keep me up to date with the gossip. It's all go with the call centre at the moment with people being brought in from other departments to make calls. Once they've managed to get 2 appointments in a day they can go back to their original post. I really hope I'm not expected to do that when I go back because I HATE call centre work! And I'm not very good at it either...

Today I had to let my web sites for Juvy (the lady who did my wedding dress) go. I've hardly worked on them at all since I got that promotion at work, and then with having Jack to look after I have done pretty much nothing. That's no good for Juvy since she's expanding so I've had to say good bye to that bit of business. Mind you, since I've done no work I've not been invoicing her either so it's not like I'm suddenly going to miss the income. I just feel sorry for letting her down and because I did really enjoy the work.

I think I'll head off for a sleep now. Yorkie's having his shift of looking after poorly Jack and there's a bottle in the fridge for them. It's one thing to be ill, but something else for all three of us to be sick at once!

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
