Visit from Cousin Harry

It's back to school today for Jack. And not a moment too soon! I love that kid sooooo much, but he needs a LOT of entertaining, and I struggle to keep up with him now I'm pregnant.

I felt a little bad about him going back today though, because today is the day that my sister-in-law Amy came to visit, with my father-in-law, his missus, and little Harry!

It's a bit cramped in our house with 3 extra adults, and even though it was just 3 kids with Tom, Georgie and Harry, it felt like more because of the excitement of visitors. We took the opportunity to head up to Giggles again for the afternoon. The kids loved it! Harry is 5-6 months younger than Georgie, but bigger so they look the same sort of age. At one point Amy was in the play area with them and someone asked her if they were twins!

Tom enjoyed being the "biggest kid" for a change too, he helped George get right to the top of the play area and wave to us from a big pod with a window in it, and played so nicely with Georgie and Harry.

They had a good afternoon, and we all had a good long catch up and a nice lunch too. I admit I drank way too much coffee (baby will be kicking like a footballer all night). They waited around for Jack to get home after Jujitsu so that he didn't miss out completely on seeing his cousin.

It was a lovely day. They're hoping to come over and do it again some time soon. I hope they can get over in the summer holidays, both sides of due date, because I know they'll want to meet new baby but I also need as much help entertaining this lot before baby arrives to! Haahaa!

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
