Nesting Phase 1 - New Bed!

The new bed came today. It was supposed to arrive between 10am and 2pm so Mark thought he'd get a good early start on pulling the old bed to bits ready to have it out of the way so the new bed can go in. This was around 8.30 - 9am

It's not quite worked out that way so far.... as it is now 8pm and we still don't have the new bed up, even though it arrived at an excpetionally early 8.55am.

My dear husband doesn't just chuck stuff out. I would have just skipped it or tipped it. People like me are the reason why we have landfill issues. He hasn't just separated the two halves of the divan, he has removed all the fabric, salvaged all the wood, and and spent most of the afternoon pulling the springs and other metally bits off what is left. There are neat(ish) piles of foam, boxes and bags of springs, and a stack of beams. He's still going.

I think the beams will become parts of shelving at some point. I was offered the foam if I could think of anything to do with it. I can't. The rest I think will be going to the tip and disposed of in the correct recycling area. I'm very proud of my Green husband.

But there is just one thing that's bothering me. In 2 hours time I'm really going to be wanting to go to bed. The old bed is still not fully down, or removed, and the new bed is still sat in it's boxes in the livingroom.

I think we might be sleeping on the old mattress at this rate! Either that or he'll be working through the night while I kip on the sofa!

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
