Our Christmas 2012 - Georgie's 1st

It's been a lovely Christmas (apart from Jack & George both being sick on Christmas Eve, and my total sleep deprivation over the festive period which is starting to catch up with me now), the kids seem to have everything they wanted - and then some :)

We did the usual Christmas Eve and Morning at Nana's, Christmas Dinner at Aunty Jenny's, Christmas Night at D-Dads, and Boxing Day at Grandmas. We also managed to see all the other aunts, uncles, and cousins, had all of the 2012 babies ( our George, and Harry & Amelia ) play together, squeeze in Uncle Lee's 18th, and make it home for New Year. I didn't get any where near as many photos as I wanted to get but we do have enough chocolate to open our own tuck shop!

I don't think Georgie had the first clue what was going on most of the time, but he did enjoy the pretty lights, the chocolate ( which might have a lot to do with the sicky bouts and broken sleep ), and the massive amount of snuggles and cuddles and loves he got from everyone. His 'big' pres from us was a Bumbo so he can sit with his brothers when they are on their stools, have a safe place to play when I need to do other things ( like cook ) and such like, but he also got a ton of soft toys, games, chocolate and clothes. Think he did well for his first Christmas!

And for New Year.... My baby finally learned to crawl, and had a cruise round an arm chair too! I'm sure you're supposed to do one then the other, not both at the same time, but hey ho. We've also finally got the nursery ready for him to move into. He's in there tonight. He's had his nap in there this afternoon and seemed to like it. He's been down an hour now tonight with no fuss. I'll still be bringing him in with us for his feeds for now, but its progress. I go back to work on
Monday so I need to get the new routine established.

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
