What's going on with the world?

It seems that every where I turn people I know and love are suffering.

I'm trying to get back in touch with a friend I haven't seen in ages, which is daft coz we live in the same town. We lost touch a while back when she kept pulling out of meeting up. I thought maybe I'd pissed her off or something after the 3rd or 4th time and left it to her to get in touch with me. Only now I hear that she has bipolar. I've umed and ahed about picking up the phone and chickened out. But tonight I was talking to a mutual friend who says she really needs us. So I've texted her and asked to meet up on Tue. No answer yet, and I'm away for the rest of the week, so I've also texted another mutual friend and put her on the case too. Hopefully something will come of it.

But it's everywhere I go. Another friend is an out patient at the local mental health unit. 2 people I know have had late (20 week plus) miscarriages. Things are bad every where I look.  Even we are having problems in our relationship (nothing I do is right and everything starts a row) which feel so much worse than the normal spats couples have.

And don't get me started on the stuff thats on the news - wars, natural disasters, etc.

My Witness friends tell me it's the coming to an end of this System (where it is the devil in control of the world, not god). There's a part of me that thinks they might be on to something.

One thing is for sure.... nearly everything is shit.

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
