And it went ok to be fair. I was in and out under an hour today but I think that's only because I'd brought Tom with me. Mark was going to look after both boys, but Jack had his pre-school booster jabs today - right in the middle of my clinic - and Mark didn't fancy his chances of keeping a good watch on Tom while Jack was getting needled! So he took Jack and Tom came with me. No one in clinic liked the idea of having a board and stroppy toddler hanging around so we were rushed through (even though Tom was as good as gold). We were even in town in time for me to take Jack for his jabs!!! Brave little feller didn't even flinch. *pride*
But I'm getting off the subject.
My blood sugars are fine. Smudges growth is fine. Everyone is happy. Even Ms Chari was civil - almost polite! And they don't want to see me again until I'm at my 3rd tri for a growth scan and follow up GD clinic - unless my BGL's start to go up (so I do need to check them) in which case I am to call up and book myself in.
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
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
