Nesting in full swing!

We're on!

Finally got the drawers today, after waiting half the day for a text from Argos that turned out to be an email sent yesterday (not impressed Argos, you can do better than that!) We've opted to give them to Jack instead of George, and give George Jack's drawers... Which are going into the nursery. Confused? Trust me, it makes since really. The new drawers have more room in them which means Jack has a drawer especially for his school uniform. They are the same as Tom's so they can go side-by-side and the top be used as Georgie-proof storage (no more Lego tipped out all over the floor at 2 am).

Having the smaller set of drawers in the nursery for Georgie to use isn't ideal, but it is only short term really. Once the room shuffle starts it won't matter any more. Right now, making sure the boys have room to play in their room is more important than tons of free space in the nursery.

So, Hubby has built the new drawers. I have arranged Jack's clothes in them. I have moved the other drawers into the nursery, and emptied the bookcase. The kids are in bed now and Hubby is mending the bookcase - which is only a cheapie one I bought as a temporary thing 15 years ago and has taken a hammering. Poor bloke is worn out, but it needs doing tonight because all the stuff that was on it is now on our bed! If it's not mended, in place, and filled tonight we'll be sleeping in the living room! He's getting a bit grumpy. I'm staying out of his way!

Needless to say the crib will NOT be getting sorted tonight. I might have a go tomorrow after work if I have any energy left. If not... Well there's time yet. 75 days to due date!

My next job: a big clothes sort! I'm planning to start on Sunday (next day me and Hubs are both home) but with the kids home that day I doubt I'll get much done.

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
