My last post as a 20-something

Woooer! Not sure how I feel about turning 30 just yet. I don't think I feel 30. Prob best not to dwell on it too much....

On the up side, I do now have my car back. It wound up with a replacement clutch as well as gear box. Still, not massively expensive, and my BOSS paid for the repairs! Whoohoo!

AND we even had a good weekend at work this weekend, practically unheard of! At least for the summer season anyway. The staff are a bit happier (or at least quieter, might not be the same thing with hidesight) and we managed to get finished on time this Saturday. The first time all summer (although first week we were only 1 minute over! That SHOULD count!)

NEXT WEEKEND I'M OFF WORK! YAY!!!! About bloomin time too!

Best of all though, (this is coded speak now to avoid TMI, the forum girlies know what I mean) tomorrow is POAS day on the forum, so I am getting involved - as it is my time to do so - and *might* get the result I want with a bit of luck. That would be the BEST present of all if it were to happen! Have been talked into using one of my CBDigi instead of ICs which have been neg all week. Didn;t need MUCH arm twisting to be honest!

And finally.... tomorrow I get to eat the chocolate cake that my dear sweet darling husband is making for me!

8 years I have been waiting for this cake. 8 YEARS! I thought it was odd when I came home from a last meeting pre-break to find that Yorkie and Jack had been to town and back in under 3 hours. Odd things were secreted about the kitchen (well, odd for us) such as whipping cream, spreadable chocolate, etc. I thought it was better I that I didn't let on I'd seen them, and not venture into the kitchen further than I had to. To the point that I ordered a take-away rather than cook and stumble upon anything. Later, not long after Jack had gone to bed, hubby offers me the computer. Unheard of! While I'm tapping away on the forum and facebook I can hear him pottering about in the kitchen. Punctuated by swearing and huffing. And questions about the scales (which are giggered). I went to fix the scales as he was asking "does this look like 4oz?" and noooo, it looked like 12oz of flour. So I fixed the scales and didn't ask any questions.....

"You weren't supposed to see any of this" he says.

Mmmm! Choc cake! Stuff for chocolate cake all over the surfaces! YUMMY!

AND HE'S MADE CHOC FUDGE FILLING/TOPPING!

AND LET ME LICK THE CAKE BOWL!

I'm being sent to bed now so he can wrap my pres *Giggle*

I think being 30 might be ok after all

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
