Tom's 4th Birthday!

Awww! My second baby has hit 4 years old!

He's actually very lucky to be having a "birthday" as he's been a little horror of late. We had warned him that all celebrations and presents would be cancelled if he didn't start to behaving him self better.... he worked his way back though. Just in time!

This year the theme has been largely Playmobil and Play-Doh! Oh, and he got a Lexibook Junior same has his brothers. Just like Jack he has chosen NOT to have a party this year and go to the cinema instead, only he wants to go and see How To Train Your Dragon 2 which isn't out yet. Not sure what to do about that.... Go and see something else AND that later in the Summer, or just hang on? I guess we'll see. Other than that it's take away pizza for dinner and an Angry Birds cake for afters!

Just to show how grown up he is Tom has also declared that he will no longer be wearing nappy pants at bedtime! He want to try being dry at night as well as through the day! Well, I'm all for that. I was planning on suggesting as much soon anyway. I'm taking it as a good sign that he want to do it all by him self. And since I'm up 2-3 times a night to go for a wee myself it's no great difficulty remembering to "lift" him for a night-time pee too.

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
