10 things to be Thankful For!

I saw this over on a bloggy friends post (check it out and link up) and thought it was a lovely idea to keep my mood up with the whole TTC thing. So here we go, in no particular order, 10 things to be thankful for:


  1. There is a good chance that we know what our Secondary Fertility is caused by, and fixing it should be simple once we get to the clinic
  2. Our doctor is very understanding and is really trying hard to help us get to the clinic
  3. According to my blood tests, my body is TRYING to do what it should
  4. Hubby's sample has come back normal!
  5. This cycle seems more normal than the previous few - still long but a more normal pattern (thanks to Angus Castus supplements?)
  6. I got Crosshairs on my Fertility Friend chart this week (suggesting I might have actually ovulated this cycle) they moved today and gave me a score of "low" instead of "good", but a score is still a score!
  7. Even after 12 years together we're still into each other enough to enjoy this whole baby making process (we both come from divorced homes, this is a big deal!)
  8. I have this blog and the lovely communities on my favourite forum and G+ group to help me work through the massive changes in moods and emotions that go along with TTC
  9. There's a chance we might not have this fourth baby.... but we have 3 brilliant sons already and I am very very thankful for them
  10. My Hubby. Who tolerates a lot. It was his idea to have 4 kids in the first place, but without him to support and love me, and make me laugh when I'm feeling at my lowest, I just couldn't cope.

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
