Double figures - last post till March

This is something of a mini milestone when the countdown drops into double figures.... For some reason it just all seems that much closer and more real!

Tomorrow we'll be 26 weeks gone, so that's just 14 weeks until the due date... 12 weeks until they *might* bring Squiggle into the world early, 16 weeks until they drag Squiggle out regardless of if Squiggle want's to come! I'm hoping Squiggle will choose to come at a sensible time without any forced intervention. If we could manage something similar to Jack (are you listening Squigs?), a nice handful of days early, all by your self... that would be perfect! (wont happen like that!)

This is really a short farewell post, as tomorrow I am scooting off to mums for a bit. It'll be March next time I'm on the blog, and I might even be in my 3rd Trimester (unless I sneak on the computer on Thursday when I call up to see Mark).

I'm really looking forward to having Jack all to myself for a few days (aside from mum, but she's working for a lot of the time) and I have planned trips to the park, the kiddie library, and we might even check out the new(ish) swimming baths since I have never been to them. I think a change of scene will do us both good.

So, until March, and 3rd Tri.... TTFN!

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
