Catch up (again)

Jack's been poorly again this week. He's had a horrible snotty cold which has been keeping him from sleeping well because his nose kept on blocking up and he couldn't breathe. It's been hard, but he's coming through it now. I'm so glad I kept that little bottle of drops for his nose from his first cold because we'd have been stuffed without it.

But we've been keeping busy. Jack's slept through most of it, but busy is busy. On Monday my boss came over and took us out to lunch as Hest Bank. It was lovely weather and we sat out in the sun to have our fish n chips - which was the one time Jack perked up. He's getting very interested in food! Me and the Boss-man talked work and I have been given the OK for the days I want to work, and for time off in Oct to see Dad & Fay (just waiting for Yorkie to get the same from his boss) so that was all good - and it meant that Jack got to have a ride in the boss's nice blue jag!

On Tue the health visitor came over to see how we're doing and check on Jack's cold - the conclusion was that we're doing just fine. And then Kathy popped in with baby Katie. Mum came over on Wednesday and took me and Yorkie out for lunch. Thurs' massage class wasn't much good. Poor Jack cried and just wanted loving, but at least I got to have a cup of tea this time! Debs came over in the afternoon and Jack was introduced to the Ann Summers store on town while she picked out some new undies to impress her new feller with.

Friday was a lovely day, although Jack slept through most of it. It started off duff with us turning up to a baby session which had changed days and I hadn't noticed (it's not one I go to often and it changes each month apparently) so wasn't on, but we met up with Jen and her lad Adam (who was dressed in his Spider-man suit - I wish I had some photos!) and went to the park for a while and had a pic-nic and then back to mine for a DVD.

Today was supposed to be Fairfield Funday. We were going and meeting up with Jen & kids, Jill & Gary & Kids and Chrissy & Kids. But this morning it was raining sheet water! So we wound up cancelling, although Jill did invite us round for the afternoon (Jen & Chrissy did stuff too, we didn't just ditch them!)

Jack seems to be felling better now too. He's gone to bed without needing his drops and has been very playful all evening. Even having a damn good go at getting to his daddy! This kid REALLY wants to be walking!

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
