Sunday Roast!

So I'm getting this new years resolution off to a good start. Yesterday I bought a shoulder of pork to roast today for the "Sunday Roast"...

And it was LOVELY! I am really getting the hang of having a proper working oven again. The pork was just cooked right, not pink, not tough. The crackling was crisp and yummy. I did baby carrots, broc & coli, gravy and roast tatties. As it turns out it was only the spuds that weren't perfect... they just weren't crispy enough. They could have done with another 5 - 10 mins under a high heat to crisp them off... but they tasted fab so I'm happy enough with that for this week.

It seems that roasting meat really is the way forward with Jack! He devowered his roast pork in much the same way as he did his roast chicken on New Years Eve. And he even had some crackling. Me and Mark felt strangely proud as we heard him crunching away on it (first proper work out his grinding and chewing teeth have ever had). It must have been a good meal because he even ate his coli & broc which he normally just crumbles up and chucks on the floor.

Question is now.... next week. Lamb or Beef???

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
