Tom is 4 months old!

It's shocking how fast time passes. Tom is already 4 months old. In 4 months time I'll be back at work. It'll still feel too soon.

Still, in the meantime I am enjoying every day I spend with my boys! I love my boys! One of the best things in all the world (and forgive me if I have said it before, but it's true) is simply sitting on the sofa with Tom on my knee, and Jack snuggled up next to me with my arm round him, while we settle in to watch a DVD. It means I get to cuddle both my boys at the same time for a while.

Jack is still the doting big brother. Everything is "Tom!" all the time. "Tom's Toy" or "Tom's Tea", he laughs himself silly if Tom smiles at him, and then Tom laughs back too. It's SO sweet! He loves to play with the baby toys too - and at the same time Tom is eyeing up everything of Jacks!

Tom's getting to be so big too. He's now in 6-9 month baby clothes and has been for a couple of weeks. He's having some baby rice and some rusk with his milk. He's due for his jabs this week and I'll get him weighed. He's spinning round on the spot now when he's put on his tummy to play and is starting to look like he might roll over if he's on his back - especially on his change mat because he can dig his toes into the side from leverage!

I wonder if he'll be crawling - or more - by Christmas!

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
