Yay for the park, Boo at Morrisons Cafe!


Happy Mount Park Slide
Originally uploaded by chiggster
So we went out, my boys and me. We went to Happy Mount Park again (coz it's nice and big) and had a lovely time. Jack played himself into the ground again running up and down and going on the slide (without a doubt the BEST thing any park could have has far as Jack is concerned). He played football with one of the other kiddies and shared his snacks with a little girl (Karma. He usually manages to scrounge off other kids!) Tom slept happily in the shade of his pram for the most part, waking up only to have a small feed.

Once Jack had worn him self out we went to Morrisons to have lunch in the cafe. Mum and John took him there a couple of weeks ago and said the burger & chips kids meal was a good deal - like a McDonalds Happy Meal - and that he'd liked it, so I thought we'd give it a go.

I wont be bothering again!

For a start we wound up waiting half an hour for his burner and chips. I was actually on my way to the counter to complain and demand my £2.49 back since he'd not had his food and instead eaten half of my lunch (a cold sandwich from the self service) when someone turned up with it. the burger was cold, and the chips chewy. There was no sign of the drink, fruit bag or choccy bar listed on my bill. So I chased them up. It took 4 attempts to get them. By this time poor Jack is crying. He's past being hungry and is just tired out now, but can't sleep on an empty belly! So I encouraged him to eat as much of his burger and humanly possible (he gagged on the last couple of bites and spat them out), and he had 2 chips before practically begging me to take him home.

Since we've been back I realised we didn't even get the colouring/activity book thingumy you get as a "toy"...

So, Morrisons, your service is RUBBISH and I'm telling EVERYONE! Happy Mount Park, however, is great and we'll be spending a lot more time there. With a pic-nic in future though.

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
