So much for swimming....

Got to the pool and was turned away! They no longer do toddler sessions in the morning. The pool is closed to the public until 12 noon because they have schools in instead. Do these school children really need to use the BABY POOL??? Most of the toddlers I know sleep in the afternoons. So is it only a matter of time before they pack in the toddler sessions all together??

I'm appalled!

Took Jack to the park instead, but couldn't stay long. It's blazing hot out there and I had dressed Jack for the chance of a breeze on damp skin coming out of the baths, no sun hat, no sun cream. So after 20 - 30 mins or so we had to come back out of the sun before he got heat or sun stroke, or sun burn.

And when I got back with him I got snapped at by Mark for coming home too early without telling him! it seems telling him I'll only be out for the morning and coming home at 12.10pm is too early. Bloody nerve! Especially when I HAD sent him a message 15 mins earlier to say we were coming back, could he put the oven on (for lunch). Clearly it's all my fault that we can't go swimming, that it's hot and sunny, and that T-Mobile can't send messages quickly enough. So I get a lecture about how he hopes the wallpaper paste will still be useable on Friday. Why?? I'm taking Jack out tomorrow morning, and most of Thu (once the health visitor has been at 10, for what will be about 20 mins if that), and he'll be in bed in the afternoons - including THIS afternoon.

GRRRRRRRRRR! Believe me, if I could have kept Jack out for the whole day I WOULD HAVE DONE!

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
