I can finally admit.....

...that we are expecting our 3rd baby!
The very same day that Tom became a toddler, I found out I wasn't going to be with out a 'baby's for long!
We were not actively trying for this one, but we're happy and looking forward to our new addition.
I can post it officially now because we told the family this weekend. I've told a few girl friends and its slowly starting to filter into public knowledge :)
I think I'm due around 15-16th April, midwife says my due date is 2-3 April, but that's because I'm counting from my late ovulation and she's counting from my last period. I have my dating scan on 22nd Sept so we'll see then. I'm thinking my due date will be what I think, but that I'll have baby closer to the midwifes date coz it'll come early.
Can't help wondering if I'll have a girl this time. I feel much sicker this time round... A girl would be nice, a boy would be easy... I've bought a gender predictor pee stick! Just for fun really and I can't use it for another couple of weeks or so. I'll find out what I'm having again, but (again) can't tell Hubby so will have to keep it quiet on here too. Maybe publish it white text one white background so if you WANT to know you can, and if not you don't have to see.
Jacks looking forward to another baby. Tom doesn't understand yet but loves babies so I am hopeful that a 3rd will fit in as well and as easily as Tom did. My boys love each other so much. Very little jealousy ever!
I'm in bed early again today, blogging off my phone, feeling sick n sleepy, so I think I will sign off and say more when I'm feeling better. Tri 1 sucks!

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
