Jack's Nursery Visit

We had a visit from two ladies from Jack's nursery yesterday. Apparently they like to do a home visit before the kids starts (check out the home situation and that) and where pleased to see that we do not live in a crack house / brothel / squat, or have floors which are 6inches deep in fag ash, animal crap etc. (I am a little put out that they insisted on a visit when I thought I had opted out.... nothing to hide, I just don't like having strangers round to my very cluttered and untidy, although clean, house)

It went well I think. Jack was his usual over excited self when they first arrived - any visitors cause mayhem for about 10-15mins - but then settled down and was happily playing with his kitchen set bringing everyone "tea and cake" and even sharing the toys with Tom (for the most part).

The only possible problem came right at the end, just as they were about to leave, and Jack was playing with some trains. He was bashing them together and shouting "Knackered! Knackered! Knackered!" Aaaaand yes, they heard him. They might have heard him in China....

Ooooops!

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
