My wonderful son

So yesterday I went to this conference with Mike and Ian. And I got to take Jack with me.

What a little sweetie he was ALL DAY! Just goes to show you can take my son ANYWHERE! Over 1200 people were there, and I thought that being sat in an arena for hours on end would drive Jack potty. I had visions of him shouting an screaming, running off, refusing to eat or sleep (which he does when he's to hot or too wound up) and he wasn't any of those things.

He did play on the seats for a bit, and tried to pinch someone else's lunch, but other than that he was as good as gold. He sat on my knee, he slept, he ate all his lunch and half of mine, he didn't cry (even when he slipped between our seats and the next row and got his foot stuck) and basically had a really good time.

Although he did slap my boss once (I tried not to laugh).

Thing is now though, that I am missing him twice as much today after having him all to myself for a day. I just want to snuggle and play games with him all day again.

Being a working mum sucks.

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
