Wedding Suits

This weekend we were invited to a wedding. The beautiful bride is my Hubby's (sort of) step sister, so there was a big chunk of his side of the family there. Good times had by all, and a lovely bonus in my brother-in-law and missus staying in the same hotel as us. She's pregnant too, just 3 days ahead of us with their 2nd child.

We stayed at a Premier Inn this time over at Brighouse, Hudderfield (Hudddersfield North) and I think it's safe to say the kids and I are sold on them! Even if we did all wind up sharing a room. All 5 of us plus bump (the kids are no where near old enough to be in a room without us yet). Luckily the room was MASSIVE being a proper family room. And the breakfast was excellent too. There was no need to go and hunt down any lunch afterwards!

My mother-in-law had bought suits for my boys and had them sent over to us. I must get the website link to share with you. The lads looked adorable! It's such a shame they wont get another chance to wear them before they are grown out of. She ordered some similar ones for their older nephews too. Someone took a photo of them all together, and I must track a copy down!


The wedding was a lovey do, and the wedding breakfast was excellent. Most of the kiddies got to sit at their own table in the middle too (not Georgie or the 5 week old baby girl whose mum shared our table) which was fabulous! They loved the independence, and frankly we parents enjoyed the break! The evening do was fab too. My 3 boys dragged me onto the dance floor for a little while where we did a strange circular dance that made sense to them... Georgie loved it and kept shouting "Dance!" and playing in the lights. Jack, we barely saw once the music started. Tom preferred to stick to his Dad's side - but that's Tom all over!

By about 10:15pm they were ready to go so we drove back to the hotel and they passed out just before 11pm. They slept the whole way home!

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

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
