December 1st! Whooooooooo!

Hee hee hee hee!

Christmas is getting closer! I've pretty much all of my shopping now, and most of the crafting too. Jack opened the first window on his calander this morning. Tom's still a bit little for that yet (poor mite, I do feel mean) but he is getting extra cuddle and kisses instead.

They are both down for a nap at the moment, and I am toying with the idea of getting their Christmas suits out so that when they get up I can dress them up and take some photos. I'm thinking Christmas Cards, Desktop Wallpaper, Avatars for the forum, facebook etc.... Jack is an Elf, Tom is a Christmas Pudding *dance*

The Christmas Tree is still firmly up in the loft though. I have been hinting (out right pestering actually) for a while only to have Mark say "It's only fecking November!" but he can't say that now, can he? Hee hee! He keeps going on about the "12 days of Christmas" which is all very well, but that starts on Christmas day, right? (I'm pretty certain on that fact, message me if I'm wrong) NO WAY ARE WE WAITING TILL THEN!

Today is the first day of advent.... today should be Christmas Tree day!

I'll work on him again when he gets home. I'd do it myself but he assures me I wont be able to get in the loft now that the floor's been raised, and there's no light up there, and he knows where all the Christmas stuff is and I don't.... I have to agree that me trying to get it while I am alone with the kids might not be a smart idea. (I've already nearly killed myself going down the back steps with the laundry  - Icey steps! Eek! - I'll be taking the phone with me to call 999 if I do go over and break something!)

Oh, and I've been playing Christmas songs to the kids off YouTube too!

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
