Easter!

No way I was going to just sit at home all day today... Not with the induction looming and the kids full of chocolate and sweets. So we went to Happy Mount Park.
It's not been the warmest or driest of days, but we've had luck on our side. We got good free parking, avoided the rain save for a little drizzle, and since the big easter 'do' was yesterday it wasn't over crowded either! Playland opened again this weekend so the boys got to play on the cars and bikes again too, as well.as have a ride on the train and a mad half hour in the Pirates In The Park indoor play.
We had a small picnic while we were there and the kids had a good 3+ hours running about like loons before heading home so Tom could have a nap and Jack got a couple of.hours on the Wii with Mark. I did the roast! Mmmm... Lamb! And it was good too. Even the kids scoffed the lot (although they were on the promise of more easter eggs if they ate up).
Now we're settled in watching the end of Toy Story before bed :)
Nice Easter <3

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
