Very proud of my big little man

Jack is doing so well with his potty training now. We hardly ever have any accidents - only if he is giddy like when he had a friend over and the first time he played on the Wii with daddy - and even then they are small and nothing much to wory about.

Twice now we have taken him out without a nappy. First time to the Factory shop and he did a pee on his potty in the boot of the car just before we came home. He didn't ask though, we asked him to go. Second time I took him round town and as we came out of the library he asked for his potty and did a wee.

Both trips out he came home with dry undies! I am SO impressed with him!

He seems to have got over his "thing" about pooing on his potty now too and is quite happy to do one on his potty every day.

We still need to get him out of nappy pants at nap time and bedtime, and I'd like to get him using the toilet instead of a potty, but there's plenty of time for that yet. I think from the end of next week, or the start of the week after, I might start putting the potty closer to the toilet so he can get used to going that far before it's "too late" and coax him onto his training seat a little more often. I've already started to ask him to try not to wee in his nappy at nap time, he wasn't impressed, but more often than not it's dry after his nap.

He's so grown up!

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

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
