I keep doing too much!!

Urgh.... I am SO tired.

I'm wanting to do stuff. I don't know if it's nesting that's kicked in early, or if I am just going nuts because I'm not at work, or what.... but I want to DO things. And I keep forgetting that this baby doesn't like me doing much. But I feel bad lounging on the sofa while Mark does all the clearing and refurbishing of Jack's room.

On Saturday I went through a load of stuff in our bedroom and the middle room (which will become Jack's room) and made up a car load of stuff to go to the tip, only to find out the car battery is dead and I can't replace it yet.

Sunday I went a little nuts and blitz the kitchen and living room, then baked two loves of bread (properly, no bread making machines in THIS house) and cooked a full roast dinner.

Yesterday I took things a bit more gentley and had a friend round with her little girl which meant the kids could entertain each other while we put our feet up and gossiped. But clearing up the mess aftwards was a bit exhausting! Mark got us a take-away because I'd forgotten to get anything out of the freezer and was too tired to think about what to cook. I had an early night, but woke up when he came to bed and then didn't back off until ater 1am.

Today I walked Jack into the town and did some food shopping and bused back. I think it would have been easier to walk back.... There is clearly a knack to getting a tired and hungry toddler, shopping, and pram onto a mini-bus while trying to keep your bump out of everyone else's way. I don't have this knack. AT ALL! And a granny had to help me both on and off the bus (Oh the shame! I'm usually so organised at such things! But thank you granny!)

I am now so tired that I could sleep standing up. But if I do I wont sleep tonight.

NO FAIR! 
((tantrum, stamp feet)) <-- It works for Jack. He always get's to go to bed when he does that >_<;

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
