(Not so) Wordless Wednesday - Tom's 1st day at Nursery!


I can't leave this wordless.... It's too special a day!

Today is Tom's first day at "big" nursery! He spent a few months doing one day a week at Applebossom in the last school year, but now he's moved up to Appletree which is the proper 16hrs per week nursery. 

He was a little nervous, but his key worker came to visit yesterday. He has the same lady that Jack had when he was there so that's nice already. She had a lovely chat with him, and he showed her his Squishy toy, his pony collection, and the games he likes to play on my iPad. When she said she had some ponies he could play with today he warmed up no end!

Today me and Jack walked him to his class, put his stuff away, and and Jack talked to him about the class - which made him feel very special and grown up too. Luckily when he was at Appleblossom he got to have his lunch in the Appletree room so he knew the place well enough, knew where the toilet was, where the toys are and so on. That made him feel at home straight away.

I expected him to have a bit of a meltdown when we left, but he didn't. He was on the hunt for some of the bead toys he'd seen in reception and when there were none in the class his key worked offered to go and get the one he'd seen on his way in. He followed her out and carried it back to class himself. At this point I said bye bye and he cheerily called "Byeee" back. He's such a different child to who he was a year ago, or even just 6 months ago!

Wednesday is his short day. He'll be having lunch about now, and in 15mins or so I'll get Georgie ready to go out and we'll go and fetch him. I think he's going to have had a lovely time! I hope he brings some nice things home with him. He loves to draw and paint!

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
