NEW CAR!

OOoooooooOoooo! I am SOOOO excited!

This is my "new" car! It's a 2008 Ford Galaxy Zetec which has been paid for with a combination of loans (hand outs) from my folks and the hard fought for (by my hubby) insurance money from the Mitsubishi. My Dad played a blinder with the negotiations and got the price down far enough for me to able to pay for the increase in my insurance, and my tax disk out of my change and STILL have a little left over to stash away for any future repairs / next years insurance.

I've done my research I think that no matter how much I love the VW Caravelle they are beyond my price range, so the Galaxy (as a close second choice) is the car for us!

It has 7 seats and still enough boot space for my pram and shopping with all the seats up, which equates to a reasonable amount of crumple-zone should anyone else run into the back of me when I have a car full of kids! The back row of seats are proper seats, not little uncomfortable flappy efforts which makes me happier too. That was my main reason for choosing this type of car.

Most of the time I wont be using the 3rd row anyway. Only once baby is here and then only if all 6 of us go somewhere which doesn't often happen. Only in the holidays and occasional weekend. From September Tom will be at school full time same as Jack so Mon-Fri I'll only have 2 kids to ferry about.  But it's great to know that when we DO all go on a day trip or holiday together then there is a PROPER SEAT for everyone, compatible with the children's car seats, AND STILL room in the boot for all the junk we cart around with us too.

I'll be picking it up tomorrow..... I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!

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
