Jack's 2nd Birthday


Opening Presents with Mummy

Awwww! My wee man! He's 2 already..... can hardly believe it, it's past to quickly!

He seems to have had (or is still having as even though it's 9pm he's still up!) a lovely birthday. We've done presents in 3 stages, mainly because he got overwhelmed and needed a break!

His favorites so far seem to be the Thomas take-along toy engines and other vehicles he got, his bricks (mega bloks minis) and a toy toaster which he is currently playing with with his daddy: Daddy put the toast in and sets the timer. Jack waits, grabs the toast as it pops, pretends to eat it, and shoves it back in ready to start again. It's been 10 minutes now and he's still playing! He also loved all the Toy Story stuff he got, he's worn the clothes (demanded to have them on) eaten and drunk form the lunch set, and read the books.

He's also had over half of a 9inch pizza! (or 1/4 of mine, 1/4 of Fay's and a fair bit of my Dad's 12inch pizza too) I think in a few months time we'll be having to order him is own 9incher!

Jack's been given his New Bedroom! (pics to follow) And he LOVES IT! After lunch he was getting drowsy so I took him up for his nap saying he could go in his bedroom (rather than nursery) so he ran into the right room, and climbed up on the bed. I tucked him in, fetched his dummy (which he still has for sleep, but not any other time) and said night night. And he slept.... no hassle, no fuss. Didn't fall out or anything. I'm one very proud mummy! At one point I went up to him because he was making a bit of noise only to find he'd chucked his pillow away (doesn't like them) and crawled up to the headboard and therefore out from under his duvet so he was cold. I tucked him back in and he passed out for another HOUR!

We failed to convince him to blow out the candles on his cake, but he did like them.... True to form he hasn't touched his birthday cake (not much of a cake eater, unless it's daddy's home made fudge cake. But EVERYONE likes that!) but he has battered his 2 helium balloons into the ground (£4 very well spent, he'd have been happy with just them)

All in all I think he has had a very good birthday. It's a shame he wont remember it. But we always will.

Love you, my Little Lumpy!

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

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

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
