Smudge Scan!

Awwwwwwwwww! This is "Smudge", our 3rd wee baba, who measures 11 weeks today - officially...

I say "officially" because every measurement I saw the woman take displayed 10 weeks 5 days (I'd worked us out at 10 weeks 3-4 days) so don't know why she settled on 11 weeks 0 days. but never mind, that doesn't matter so much. What matters is little Smudge is alive and well.

Its a shame that me n Mark both felt that we hadn't had the best sonographer the RLI has to offer. First off she thought this was our 2nd scan (no... that'll be the other couple we were just talking to outside) and then she wasn't chatty like they usually are. I was worried to start with coz Smudge wasn't moving, and I couldn't see a heart beat. And she said NOTHING for ages.... Then finally she went through head, bum, arms, legs and heartbeat (which I STILL couldn't see). Then Smudge moved.... phew! Think baby was trying to sleep and did not like being prodded. She missed out on the best photo ops and we wound up with this shot of the back of Smudges head (on the right there) and has us whisked out in under 5mins :o(

Never mind though, we'll no doubt get a better one at 20 weeks, and if I get checked for GD again then there will be plenty more scans.

I'm just happy to see our baby alive and well :0)

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
