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???

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
