Back to work tomorrow

Seems like no time since I packed up my desk to start maternity leave. I'm back to work tomorrow. Got my box of stuff packed (including photo of kids, kidston mug & tea pot, and my breast pump!) Just have to add my lunch in the morning.

I've spent the day cleaning up. Kitchen & bathroom are fit (enough) for my mum coming over to childmind. Hubby & eldests uniforms are washed. Since its Twelth Night hubby has taken the tree and decs down. It's all very sobering.

While in looking forward to being around adults again I am going to miss my kids terribly. I've never been apart from George for more than 3hrs and its going to be hard leaving with Jack - who I am dropping off at school - in the morning. Mascara might be a bad idea...

But its not like I haven't done this 'first day back' thing before. It's no easier 3rd time round, but I do know everything will be ok. It still makes me sad though. I was fine until today and now it seems real I'm a little less than fine.

Oh hum.

I'll be home before 6pm. I get an hour with them all before bed.

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
