35 weeks down, 35 days to go!

Wow..... 35 days.... It's the 1st of May today which also means that Squiggle is due NEXT MONTH and could easily come THIS MONTH!

In another week I can join a different thread in my forum. There's a 36-37+ weeks signs spotting thread where imminent mums-to-be can chat about what signs of early labour they are (or are not) getting. One more weeks and I can increase the cups of raspberry leaf tea from 1 to 2, and then more as my due date gets closer (just in case they DO induce me, at least my body might be slightly better prepared).

I am proud of my weight gain still. The FF site says this:
You may have gained up to 30 pounds or more by this point.
I have actually to date gained only 17lb! And that's with Squiggle being on the bigger end of perfectly normal.So hopefully I wont be too blimpy when Squiggle gets here and I'll get a good start on my healthy weight loss / fitness plan.

Mum came over yesterday and we went baby shopping! She bought us the new mattresses we needed for the moses basket and swinging crib, and bought Squiggle's bouncing chair too (the same one we had for Jack which was brilliant!) She also treated me and Jack to a Mc Donalds, which was very welcome! Especially to a snot filled Jack who just wanted a fuss making of him (poor wee poorly boy!)

The loft is pretty much done now too, save for a bit of stapling up of membrane (???) then all that needs doing is actually getting the stuff up and out of the way. But I'm insisting that Mark has a day off from DIY today and takes Jack out instead (which actually gives me a break although I'm probably going to spend it catching up on housework) but we are only a few short days away from me being able to get back into the nursery and then I can start playing with baby things again!!!

I keep browsing the Kiddicare website for things we might need, but daren't order anything until I've found out what we have that's reusable and what we don't otherwise I'll end up ordering stuff we have tons of, and not stuff we need. Still I LOVE window shopping (or should that be MS Windows TM since it's online?)

Ahhh..... I have the house to myself for a few hours. It's bliss! Just me and the telly! I think I'll stick some washing on, give the kitchen a once over and consider mopping the downstairs, in between coffees... (domesticity, eh?)

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
