Why I'm taking part in Movember 2013!

I have joined this years Movember Campaign, and I'd like to invite you to join me!

Why? Well, I'm very lucky that I am not posting this because someone I love has suffered or been lost die to Mens Health Issues. But I do have a lot of men in my life that I love and care about ( no, not like that!!! Cheeky! ) like my 3 lovely sons, my hubby and my dad to mention just the obvious. Then there's my extended family, my step-families, and my in-laws, my friends. And when you think that 1 in 8 men with suffer prostate cancer, boys as young as 15 are being diagnosed with testicular cancer, and 1 in 4 people (men and women) are suffering with mental health issues ... Well I'm not going to wait until someone I love is ill before I start to care.

We all know men are RUBBISH when it comes to going to the doctors. My Hubby will complain for months on end before I drag him kicking and screaming in to the doctors. So far we've been very lucky. By raising awareness with Movember men will hopefully see that there are things they need to get checked out, and the sooner the better. And that going to see a doctor or other health professional isn't any kind of weakness. It is, in fact, as manly as can be!

So, what do you say? Are you in?

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
