We're home again!

After spending almost a week away from home we're finally back! It's nice to go away.... but it's nice to come home too. We spent the weekend with Mark's folks, calling in on my mum there and back for a few nights.

It's going to be the last time before the baby comes though, driving is so hard for me now. My belly touches the steering wheel for one which means the slightest accident will have massive negative repercussions on Squiggle. Chances of a accident are hugely increased because my right buttock and leg keep ceasing up when I'm driving, which means that taking my foot off the accelerator and applying it to the brakes is difficult, agonizing... close to impossible. The whole thing wipes me out too, any more than 30 - 40 mins driving means I feel sick and can't eat afterward for hours, all I want to do is go to bed and sleep. That's pretty much how I am feeling right now, and I've only driven back from my mums. It wont be long before I'm ordering the grocery shopping on line and walking to everything else. Luckily I (should) only have 1 more trip to the hosp before baby comes and that's just a week away so I might be able to stop driving altogether after that.

Still, we had a nice time. Jack got to see his cousins and play on the slide that Auntie Rachel has in her back garden. He is besotted with Jenny's other half Ash and wants to follow him every where! He has also discovered the joy of Gym Balls (so now I have 2 reasons to buy one, 1 - for me to help get baby into position/ease labour pains and 2 - for Jack to play with when I'm not using it). He's been back to the park near my mums too, and has mastered the Big Slide (vid to follow) he also managed to blend in with the other mums kiddies and scam free snacks (not sure if I feel shame for him conning food, or proud that he should be so confident!)

Right now my precious little first born is bullying his father. He's trying to rip the skin tags from his neck, and it throwing a (mostly deflated) football in his face.... not behaviour I really want to encourage. Although because it's not happening to ME it's pretty funny! But once he's gone to bed I'll be doing the same (bed, not bullying my hubby).

Hopefully my next post will be little more positive!

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
