I would do anything for love..... but.......

I've had a busy couple of week, not least being the wedding of my hubby's little brother, that we damn near missed (none baby post, very funny).

But the real reason I haven't been posting much is because not much has been happening on the baby front. My AF came and went with very little drama, and I've been sat around waiting for a temp change to say that I've ovulated. I'm on cycle day 15 and still waiting.

I suppose that could be a good thing.... if I had ovulated on cd14 I might well have missed my chance because we'd spent the 3 nights over the weekend sharing our bedroom with the kids (family room booked at the hotel while we were down for the wedding) and as much as I want another baby, there are limits to what I am willing to do to get one! Baby dancing with my hubby while anywhere between 1 and all of our kids are in the same room is one of those limits!

.... I wont do that!

But my temps did not go up. So we're still in with a chance.

Only now I'm not very well. Its only a cold, but it's a nasty one and it's put a dampener on my mood,  not to mention draining me of my energy. I'm not really up to hour long sessions with the hubby because I'm knackered! So what am I doing about it? Well........ I'm "entertaining" my hubby as much as possible without pushing him too far and then making sure I am deeply involved in the "finale" if you get my meaning.

..... I guess I did do that..... *blush*

He's happy, I'm happy, I'm getting the results I want. Don't judge me for my choice of methods :-P

I've got my blood test next week. Tuesday feels like a million years away at the moment. And every morning I wake up and my temp hasn't gone up I'm just that tad more frustrated!

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
