I felt squiggle move!!!

I have been complaining that I have not felt this baby move since before Christmas. And I was starting to worry ever so slightly too. I'd planned to go to Apple Tree tomorrow and attnd the drop in centre so I could hear baby's heart beat (something the MW suggested I do) but with the snow being the way it is I doubt that the nursery will even be open. I was having to start thinking about coming to terms with waiting another week to make sure Squiggle is ok...

And then, last night, once I had climbed into bed... I felt a shuffle! I practically held my breath and waited for another one - just in case it was wind or my dinner digesting etc - and there was another, and another! Whoo!

Not enough for Mark to feel anything yet (well, there wouldn't be) but I am SO thrilled! Will not be forcing my self down the hill to Apple Tree in the snow and ice now.

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
