Count down to trying for baby 4: Clutter!

Eeeeek! Only 5 weeks if the pill left!

You know, as I'm sat here near the end if the day (as far as the kids are concerned), looking at the crazy mess they have made and the tiny amount of space we have, I find my self thinking about chucking a lot of stuff out! And getting better storage for the stuff we have. Not more storage because I've run out of room to PUT more storage. Better stuff. No idea what though.

And what exactly to I get rid off? With plans for another baby next year there's no point getting rid of baby stuff we will only wind up buying again! And everything the boys have comes in handy for the younger boys. They all play with everything...! Cars, trains, super heros, knights, building blocks, books, colouring and crafting stuff.... There's tons of it but it all gets used!

I feel like I am drowning in toys and books and kids clothes. There is barely a surface in the house which isn't cluttered, or a floor that's free of debris, or a door handle that isn't being used as a handing rail. Every chair has stuff piled on the back of it.

I feel a bit like Waynetta Slob by the end of the day, with my hair and clothes a mess and my energy at minus five. At least I can say there isn't a thick fog of cig smoke or mountains of discarded beer cans. That's one thing in our favour.


(not actually me or the hubby!)
It's not put me off having another baby, but I do find myself looking forward to the day we CAN start ditching stuff we won't use again. Although there will be tears shed when it comes to things we've had since Jack was a baby and they've all used them.

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
