Jack's first trip to the dentist

I've always been a bit rubbish at going to the dentist. It must have been about 5-6 years since I last went (my old dentist gave me the push because I didn't book an apt every 6 months). Mark found us a new NHS one a while back. I was supposed to be going the day my car got trashed, and we finally got in yesterday.

It was Mark's 2nd apt and he had his broken tooth taken out. It was mine and Jack's 1st. My teeth are ok, had a bit of a scrape and the nice lady dentist said she's take out the wisdom tooth that is growing sideways into my cheek so long as I can wait until after the baby is born. She had a look at Jack's teeth and saw no problems - so it looks like we're taking good care of them! She gave the usual advice about not letting him have sweets, and not giving him milk or jucie to take to bed just water (although Jack sleeps through now and has no drinks after having his teeth brushed until morning).

Jack was a big brave boy, even if he didn't like having the mirror in his mouth, and was given a sticker to say so. I'm very proud of BOTH my fellers (esp since poor Mark had to chomp down on a bit of cotton for 2 hours after his extraction and missed the Special Treat For Being Brave McDonalds Lunch that me and Jack shared).

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
