The Lego Movie!

Yesterday I took Jack & Tom to see the Lego Movie in 3D! 

Poor hubby was gutted to be left out of this little trip but Georgie is too young and someone had to stay home with him (sorry, Hubs, we'll get it on DVD so you can watch it too!)

To be honest I was dreading this. Jack had only been to the cinema once and that was with school. Tom has never been before. I was worried about them messing about, chattering, running around..... I had promised the boys this trip out some weeks ago but that was before I got ill and now that I am poorly I was more worried than ever about going alone with them. BUT this was the only chance I was going to have to take them so I dosed up and set off with them on the bus for a Sunday Adventure!

We made an afternoon of it, the bus meant that we were in town almost an hour before the movie started (Sunday buses are one a hour so it was over early, or miss the start), I treated the kids to a McDonald's lunch where they got a Lego Movie 3D cup as their Happy Meal toy which they were thrilled about, and I promise to fill with popcorn for them for the movie. They got Metal Beard, and some discount vouchers which we can use at Legoland Discovery in Manchester next time we go! Winner!

So piled up with sweets, popcorn, drinks and our 3D glasses we settled down to our movie.... I was mentally steeling myself for reigning in bored kids hyped up on sugar and E numbers and fully expecting to have to leave for at least one toilet break if not leave early all together........

I couldn't have been more wrong! The kids were glued to their seats and the silver screen! They loved the movie! I loved the movie! We laughed, we sang ("Everything is awesoooooooome!"), we had a flipping MARVELLOUS time!

And yes, we WILL be buying it on DVD!

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
