Lac de Barterand

Easily the worth thing to happen this holiday was Jack getting over excited and giddy in the house. He ran across the run, straight across a giant floor cushion (that he'd been told not to tread on), slipped, and smacked his face off the wooden leg of a chair splitting his cheek open. That's why he has a HUGE plaster on his face for the rest of the holiday.

Still, it didn't slow him down any and he just carried on having fun!

This is another lake local to my Dad's house. It's Lac de Barterand

You pay to go on this one but it is beautifully clean and manned with a life guard. There's a cafe/bar there too. 

The kids LOVED this one because it was much shallower and had proper steps and a ladder to ease you into the water. They were sad that we didn't see any fish this time though. Ans it was scorching hot so we only stayed a couple of hour. This time Papee went in the water too (although he did have to nip home to get his swimming gear because he's forgotten it!)

The rest of the day we relaxed at Mamee & Papee's house, swimming in the pool, playing with Scraps (the new baby bunny) and just enjoying the sunshine each others company.

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
