Progress :D (Jack in TOP BUNK!)

Well I can check a few more jobs off the list!

Mark finally managed to fix the bunks and Jack is in the top one now, been almost an hour and no screaming or tumbling from great heights as of yet so I'm feeling hopeful (there's even a thunderstorm rolling about but not a muff from the kids). Jack was asking for me to bring Tom in to share his room as I said night night to him :oD Think it'll be a few nights yet before I stick um both in there!



I've managed to sort the cloth nappies and vac-pac the larger ones for later. The smaller ones are in the Tidy ready to be washed closer to my due date. Really wish we could sort the big dresser in the boys room (it's musty, don't know how to shift the smell) then I could move Tom's clothes out of the nursery and in to there, but it will have to wait until the better weather I think :o( This thread gave me a few ideas to try (and a chuckle): http://do-it-yourself.tribe.net/thread/50626ea9-08e2-4016-bc76-602cb4b4f4c5

So..... The "To Do Before Smudge Arrives" List now looks like this:

Buy mattresses for crib & basket
Get Tom into Big Boys Room
Finish repair/refresh on dresser in boys room
Fix the kitchen (biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig job!)
Baby Laundry

Should be ok at that..................................................

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
