Starting To Nest!

Vests from the set Jack chose
I went out with Jack today and he chose Bean's "coming home" outfit a gender neutral two piece set with a fluffy elephant on it. Then we found some vests and a hat to match! So that's that sorted! All I need for the hospital bag now are the nappies and something for me to wear when I come home!

I've been trying to sort the nursery a bit. We're a bit stuck now until next week when Georgie's new drawers arrive. So far his clothes are still in the nursery room drawers, which Bean will need. But once he has his own drawers I can start looking through my baby clothes and cloth nappies, give the drawers a good clean, and check over the baby toys to see if they are in need of cleaning.

I started to look at what we had for baby and there is just SO much stuff that we already have! Loads of soft toys, musical toys, a couple of play mats/gyms with interchangeable toys (about 2 bags of toys for them). I want to get a new bouncy chair. But beyond that.... Bean is pretty well set up!

I've dug out the baby car seat and taken the cover off ready to get washed - it got a bit dusty since it was used last. I'd like to get it in the car now (just to get it out of the way) but don't know how many more runs to the tip hubby wants to make between now and baby and it seems silly to put it in just to keep taking it out every other weekend for the next 10-12 weeks. For now it's sat in the baby bath next to the cot.

I'm itching to get back into my baby clothes stash. I ditched a load of stuff just before I put it away last time and only kept stuff I really really love. I'm going to get a bit teary eyed going through it all again I bet!

I want to put the crib up soon. I was hoping for this weekend. But there is still a bookcase in our room where I want the crib to go. That needs to go into the nursery, but can't move until Georgie's drawers are here and we've worked out the best way to squeeze everything in.

So...... Everything hinges on these ruddy drawers! And when there is a whole weekend just begging for stuff to fill it, Tuesday feels like a looooooong way away!

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
