1 month to our due date!

Wooo!

Just one month to go - maximum. Potentially less (I hope less). There's still stuff to do, but the pressure is off now. Mark has started to put some stuff in the loft. I think if Jack hadn't been ill we'd have more stuff up there so it isn't all done yet but with very good reason. Jack seems to be well on the mend now too so hopefully we can get moving again soon. As it's polling day today me and Mark walked Jack down to the community centre (our polling station for the day) so he's had chance to go out and get some fresh air and exercise, although it's wiped him out, poor thing.

We need to do some more baby / house shopping, so that's cutting in on our remaining prego time. I get paid in a little over a week. We need to get some more storage boxes which will fit through the loft hatch. I want to buy a birthing ball before it's too late. Both Jack and I need to have our hair cut (Jack so he doesn't start to look like a girl, me so I don't end up ripping it out by the roots mid labour), and I might still buy a few bits for Squiggle too.

As Jack is having a nap at the moment I am debating wether to use this time to have a bath and pamper myself a little bit, or to go through the cloth nappies and 0-3 month baby clothes and make a list of anything we need to buy. A bath sounds great, but so does baby stuff! I know I'll feel disinclined to do either this evening once he's in bed for the night because I'll just want to go to bed myself then (Oh the joys of pregnancy, in bed by 9pm at the lastest). There's no massive urgency in either. I'm not going anywhere so don't need to have fresh radient skin (just so long as I don't pong, and I have had a wash), and I can't buy anything until the 15th so sorting through the baby stuff would just be a fun exersize with some list writting involved...

I wonder if Jack will nap long enough for me to do both???

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
