First day back at work

It wasn't as bad as it could have been. Work it self is fine.

I hated leaving the kids though. Esp little Georgie. I knew Jack & Tom would be fine, they are both used to mummy working, but it was all new for Georgie. I held off the tears though. It's a big help that we are all used to my going out in the morning to take Jack to school, so I avoided having a crying baby as mummy walked out of the house. I just didn't come back till gone 5pm!

I only called once to check if everything was ok. And it was.

Funniest thing about the day was the look on Georgies face when he first saw me with my make up on, hair done, and glasses on... Took him a while to be convinced that this woman was still his mummy. He was all wide eyes and intrigue. He gave me the same look when I got home, until I leaned over to give him a kiss and then he KNEW I was mummy and just had to be picked up for a snuggle and cuddle. I wasn't allowed to put him own again for an hour, and even when I did get to put him down with his toys he only played for a couple of minutes before grinning at me, crawling across the room as fast as we've ever seen him move, and pull himself up on my chair for another cuddle. Then he spent the last bit of his day trying to chew my face off in that way I try to convince myself is him kissing me.

So it wasn't too bad. And I don't have to do it again till Friday.

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
