Lancaster Bomb Scares

The thing with having kids, and not being at work, is that you can start to loose touch with the outside world. I don't mean never see people or anything, we see our friends and family. But we tend not to watch the news because if the telly is on we've either got CBeebies on, or a DVD cartoon.

So I got a little curious when on my way home from taking the kids to Happy Mount Park with Kathy & Katie I saw half of Skerton cordoned off with tons of police milling about. I thought maybe someone had tried  to kill themselves, or fallen into the river or something (I am a shameless rubber necker). Then when I was sat at traffic lights round Kingsway a police van shot past followed by a van reading "Bomb Disposal Unit" ... Here. In Lancaster. Where it's quiet and nice!

SO as soon as I got home (well, ok, after I'd fed and changed Tom and asked Mark to fix some lunch for Jack) I jumped on the t'interweb and tried to find out what had happened. Only the local press was slow off the mark and I could only find some vague news on the local radio stations web site. A suspicious package seen on the back seat of a car. I'd guessed that much!

Now that I'm having a look though, it seems my nice little mini-city home isn't as safe as I thought!

This is the second bomb scare in less than a week, police called in the squad after raiding a home on Lune Road at 9am on Wednesday (September 22). WMG
 Stories are different everywhere I look. But I'm hooked now:

I think I need to work "checking on the local news" into my daily routine!

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
