The New Routine

It seems to be taking the family a while to settle in to my return to work.

The family. Not me.

Georgie is suddenly unsettled at bed time. He's crying every time he's put down in is bed, crying in the night, and will only be settled by me. Tom has started wanting more and more snuggles too, I think he got used to me being home again. And Jack is pushing and pushing his boundaries (although that's his age, not me being back at work).

But some else who "should" be ok but isn't is my dear dear hubby!

3 days I've been at work. 1 of those days my mum had the kids. So he's had the kids for two days, one Friday and one Monday. He has panicked, fretted, tantrumed, and not got a fraction of the daily housework done. The place is a bigger mess than usual and I think he's planning on selling the kids in to slavery - along with the cat - if they upset him any more. Safe to say he's not cut out to be a stay at home dad now we have 3 to worry about! He was late for the school run too, poor Jack.

It makes me laugh. It's the stuff that I've been doing all day every day for the last 9 months, and he can't cope with two days, two days there weren't even back to back!

But I wish Georgie wasn't so unsettled.

Making kids settle in bed itself a big challenge.. :-)

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
