2 Week Count Down

I couldn't resist taking a photo of this packet last night, but then realised there was very little "nice" or "arty" I could do with it. This was about as good as it got!

But anyway, the point is I am now only 2 weeks away from finishing this packet and then I'm just waiting for everything to sort it self out and get back to normal.

Suddenly two weeks doesn't sound very long at all.

I keep finding my eyes wondering over to the box where I keep my IC (internet cheapies) ovulation tests and pregnancy tests. The ones I bought months ago knowing I'd "need them soon". But I'm not touching them yet! I'm as bad in supermarkets... My eyes seek out the tests and I make a mental note of prices without even meaning to! I think it's safe to say I am OBSESSED!

I've had to force myself away from the Preg Forums for the last week. I've been wanting to camp out on there all day and half the night but I know if I do then I'll chuck away all my plans for a July/Aug 2014 baby out of the window and "accidentally" get up the duff asap!

You do know that by this time next week I'm going to be climbing the walls with excitement!!!

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
