Weekend Away

It was Kate's birthday on Friday, so after my hosp apt we drove over, via my mum's and picking Jenny's feller Ash up. The traffic could not have been any worse! It took us 45 mins to drive the 20 miles between Lancaster & Preston and we wound up being rediculaaly late for poor Ash who had never laid eyes on me and Yorkie and was now going to have to spend the next couple of hours squeezed into my car with us and Jack. Still, he seems like a lovely guy.

We had a lovely weekend. It was nice meeting Ash, he and Yorkie played on the PS2 together and got some good male bonding done! Saturday we went round to Kates. Gary, Rachel and kids were there, as were Bob & Rach, Us, Jenny & Ash, and Joy (And Kate & Dave obviously!). We stuffed ourselves silly with Tacos! But it was so hot that Jack and Alex couldn't or wouldn't sleep - or eat - and we wound up with cranky babas.

On Sunday we called in on David & Dee and had some lunch. Jack was thrilled to bits with the bunnies! (Mmm.... I still have that old Hutch under the house!) And this time he fell asleep right after eating and didn't wake up again unil we were half way back to my mums!

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
