Big Steps for Small Boys (esp Georgies)

It's been a busy old day here! Our Big Lad Jack was off to a friends house after school, not the first time by a long shot, but this time he was staying out for his dinner. That's a first! I'm perfectly happy with him going out after school and the family he went with are smashing. My only worry was that today I had no mobile phone signal! (I've had an upgrade at it taken ALL DAY to get switched over, Grrr) so I felt cut off from him! But he was fine and behaved himself well enough. 

The friends dad, however, did mention that Big Lad was now wearing a pair of his mates underpants..... It's been a scorching hot day and they were playing in the back garden with some water. Jack felt the need to strip out of his uniform and splash about in his boxers...


At least he had the sense not to wreck his school clothes!

Blondie Tom has had a bit of a day of it too. As well as 4 days in a row being Clean & Dry (whoo potty training) he's had a MASSIVE hair cut! Can you believe these photos are only 5 days apart?

I have to admit I felt like crying as the lady took clippers to my Angels beautiful golden locks... but it's not the first hair cut he's had, and with it being so hot lately the poor boy has really suffered with the heat. His head has been sweating and his hair was getting matted. Plus there's been a threat of head lice in nursery so better safe than sorry. At least we'll be able to SEE if he gets them.

But the biggest and best news is for our Georgie Boo!

He took his first proper steps today! At 1yr, 2m, 1w and 2days old he took 5 wobbly steps from me to his dad totally unaided! We're SOOOOO proud! I wish I could have caught it on camera, but when I think about it, it's much more important to have been able to witness it first hand. There will be plenty of time to capture him running around. Only one time to smoother him in kisses and cuddles for doing it the first time!

I love these mile stones. I love seeing my babies grow into young boys. They mean the whole world to me!

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
