I got the call!
Just as I was leaving work today my mobile went: an unrecognised local number. I hesitated before answering it - normally I only bother answering the phone to people I know (I can be a bit anti-social like that) - but my eldest was going to the school disco with friends and there was a chance it was one of the other parents home numbers (if I only have their mobile number stored) so just in case.... I answered it.

It wasn't one of the mums. It was Healthub aka the Fertility Clinic! Had I got the letter they sent? I hadn't....! The lady went on to explain that they had offered me and hubby an appointment for the 26th Nov, but that they actually had a cancellation for Tue NEXT WEEK if I wanted it!

Now I really really wanted to say yes, but Hubby will be working and unable to get time off, and we'd have no one to mind the kids at such short notice. It would seem a little off being my children to the fertility clinic! But I took her up on the original appointment for the 26th. Me and Hubby are both off work that day and it gives me time to find someone to watch Tom & George for a couple of hours while we go.

I am so very very excited!

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
