He's at that bloomin bathroom again!

This months progress has been.... well, it LOOKS like he's not done very much, but he has. Honest!

Those pipes in the picture? They're for the new shower. He's run pipes the length of the bath and up through the new wall, and there they are, WORKING and NOT LEAKING! That took him a fair while to do as he had about 6 inches of working space.

And the wall. Why am I showing you the wall?

It's because you can't see though it any more! You can now pee in peace in this house without kids hanging about on the stairs, peeping though the huge gap in the wall chanting "I can seeeeee yoooooooou!"

And there is board going up around the new window too, almost all the way round now.

I'm not kidding myself that this means we're any where near tiling yet. There's still more board to go up and we've run out, so that means I trip to Wickes on my own one day and getting one of the lovely staff there to help me out to the car with those huge sheets of Auqapanel (since he can't drive, and us both going means the kids go too, and then there's not room for the board!) Even when the board is up he still needs to plaster the other walls and what ever else before tiles can go up.

Still. Progress is progress..............

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
