Jack's Days Out

I've been feeling a little out of sorts just lately. There are a few things weighing on my mind, but the jist of it is: I hate being at work all day away from my little boy, I'm stressed out with the pressure of the new roll, it's sodding winter and winter hates me!

But that doesn't mean that on the days when I'm not working myself into an early grave/nervous breakdown that I can't go out with Jack...

He loves other kiddies! Last week I met up with Jen at Jills house. Adam was at nursery but she brought Conner, and our two lads played happily with Jills two, giving us chance to have a girly natter.

This week we helped Jen move some stuff to her new place, and Jack had a great time playing with Adam and Conner, and looking at the fish in Jen's landlord/housemates fishtank!

Today we took a family trip out to the park, although I'm feeling ill and Jack's under the weather too. He had a go on the swings and slide, and was gentely rocked on one of the kiddie rockers, but he was tired and just wanted to go back to sleep in his pram. Poor kiddo!

Next is a trip over to Nanna's

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

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
