Waiting....

Anyone who knows me knows I HATE waiting. I'm an "I want everything yesterday" kind of person. I know it. I'm comfortable with it. it's part of who I am.

Today I am having to wait. I'm waiting for the second hand gearbox I've ordered to arrive, with a hint of trepidation: what if it doesn't come and I've been conned out of £130?

I am also in my Two Week Wait now, and feeling bloated, nauseous, irritable etc. this could be because I am so stressed (and to be fair, probably is) or it could be "signs!" I'm thinking the former. I'm itching to do a test, but that would be pointless, and I'd just get my hopes up for 5 mins while the test took, and then be gutted when it comes up negative.

I really should hold off until my birthday, at the earliest, since that's when AF is due to pay a visit, and really REALLY should wait until the 31st which is my official testing day.

But I know what I'm like, and in a couple of days time - when I am at my earliest viable testing day with an early test - I'll be peeing on that stick and winding myself up.

Question: If I KNOW I'm like this... why do I let myself get carried away? Answers on a postcard please!

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
