First Kicks

I've been feeling Baby Bean kicking now for the last week. It's such a lovely lovely feeling (at this stage, I'll be less impressed towards the end when every boot hurts!) I usually feel Baby of an evening, once the kiddos are in bed and I'm finally relaxing with my feet up. Then the little thing goes mental! I've likened it to star jumps rather than butterfly flutterings!

It's very reassuring though. I've been in danger of forgetting I'm pregnant this time round.With three kids to deal with and entertain already, plus Hubby trying to sort the bathroom out (such a loooong project!), and I'm still working too, it seems that I just need to blink and a whole week has gone by!

And because we already have almost all the required baby stuff in place there's not a whole lot to do in the way of preparation for baby! A bit of room shuffling to make sure we can get the crib up by my side of the bed but that's all. Without having things to "stress" about and fuss over, it's like it's not happening.

It's nice not to feel stressed and panicked at the thought of a new baby coming, but I do feel like I'm missing out on some of the excitement of being pregnant. I'm very much looking forward to the scan on April 1st so that I can go and buy some little blue or little pink things for baby... mainly so that I CAN go and do SOMETHING for the baby.

The down side to being to distracted is missing out on bonding with my bump. I don't want to feel like I've not bonded. This is my LAST pregnancy, I want to make the most of it..

Hopefully, once I've had my scan and I know if I've carrying a Freddie or a Rosie, and I can go on a little shopping trip (even if I only spend £10!) I'll feel more excited, and more bonded.

But for now, I shall sit back and enjoy these little kicks from my Bean reminding me "hey Mummy, I'm in here!"

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
