Work stuff

I've been busy since I went back to work 2 months ago. And I am actually really enjoying myself! My new roles include the redesign of the website (Yay!!!) and Credit Control. I've never really fancied credit control. I'm not one for being on the phone if I can help it, and I'm not good at confrontation (unless I'm drunk or seriously peeved). Last time I was put in credit control I was expecting Jack so I was a lot younger, softer, hormonal, and just plain scared.

Now.... now I have 3 kids I need to be strict with and take no bull from. Now I understand the importance of getting the money owed back to the company. And I accept that if I am not proving myself to be an asset to the company I'm likely to find my hours reduced or cut altogether! ("current economic climate" and all that)

So! Credit Control it is! And I'm enjoying it. I'm actually getting results too. Debts going back almost 2yrs are being sorted and paid. I feel like I am making significant progress on some of the suborn clients (and ex-clients) who have been holding off paying. I've researched my CCJs and stuff too and although I have not yet threatened anyone with court action I am confident that if/when I do I'll know exactly what I'm talking about... and we'll win if it does actually go to court.

I have my first Debtors Report to write on Mon morning ready for the directors meeting. Hope they are happy with the progress that I've made!

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
