Nasty ear infection :(


I had my midwife appointment yesterday. I also had a doctors appointment. Because I'm ill. Again.
This time I have a nasty ear infection, and a clogged sinus. This has meant that my face felt like it was being ripped open with jagged glass for the last 3-4 days, while also feeling like someone was hammering a blunt pencil into my ear. I was actually reduced to tears by the pain on 3 occasions. I haven't been able to sleep and I have taken way more paracetamol than I should have. All this just as I came out of yet another lot of D&V (3rd this preg).
Anyway.... it's all good news now. I have antibiotics for my ear, and my latest water infection, and I am starting to feel better (if still deaf and dizzy). Smudge is doing fine - I got to hear baby's heart beat again - and today is only 9 weeks to my due date :o)
My only real concern today is trying to occupy Jack & Tom who seem to be suffering from cabin fever but it's seriously icy out there and I have no sence of balance right now. There is no way I can handle two crazy boys, out on the ice, while unsteady on my on my feet, AND pregnant..... Gonna be a hard day!

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
