Haunted by underpants!

They are everywhere I turn!

Undies. Kecks. Gruds. Tiny little boxer shorts and briefs.....!

I go to the loo, there's a pair on the bathroom floor. Multiple pairs on the boys bedroom floor, some used, some clean, but discarded for daring not to support the days chosen cartoon character. I'm not sniffing them to check which is which... They all go in the wash basket!

Pants in the livingroom! Haphazardly kicked off by a potty training toddler, kicked under the sofa, stuffed between the cushions, hanging off the door handles, and even a pair lounging on top of the telly! 

Scrunched up pants in the kitchen, having made a bid for freedom from the laundry basket on the way to the washer. Very hygienic! 

And just when I think it's safe and my day is done, I pull back my bedclothes to find ANOTHER PAIR that missed the return to the kiddies drawers during the fold and stack run!


And don't get me started on odd socks :0$

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


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
