Jack's Christmas Show 2013

We were late, which is never a good thing. Tom has refused to put his boots on, or even look for them, so by the time we had wrestled him into them there was no way round it, we were going to be late! 

Almost 10 mins late!

We were allowed to sneak in though, although there were only two seats so I bagged them for me and the kiddies and Mark wound up at the back, standing up. We were about as far away from Jack as we could be! But at least we hadn't missed his part.

The kids were all great, but I was itching to see my boy in action. Eventually the Sugar Plum Fairy was shown the Toy Robots and it was Jack's turn - along with his friends - to parade up and down for her. Have a look - it's only short. Spot the one rocking it out and moshing away? That's my boy!



I think it's safe to say he enjoyed being a Toy Robot! And I am so proud of him because he really got into it and enjoyed himself! (and I will enjoy reminding him about wearing tights when he's older!)


Oh, and he lost one of his top front teeth this morning too! But he refused to sing "All I want fer Christmas is mi two front teef!" and positively sulked at me when I suggested it, hee hee! I held off from asking which girls he'd been kissing under the mistletoe!

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
