Tornado over Lancaster?!

Well.... who'd have thought it? Little Old Lancaster, where nothing extraordinary ever happens (hardly ever, remember the Earthquake of 2009?), had a tornado - well, a funnel cloud - pass overhead last night.

I heard the storm. I was just putting Tom & Georgie to bed, we'd read a Peppa Pig book where there had been a thunder storm leading to many many muddy puddles, and then we heard the thunder and pouring rain for real. It was really coming down hard!

The tornado surprises me though, because (aside from not being usual up our neck of the woods) when I stuck my head out of the front door wondering where the cat was and why he wasn't begging to come in, there was barely a breath of wind. I would have assumed it would be at least a BIT windy! Fizzy (the cat) made it home shortly after when there was a break in the rain and enjoyed a good rubbing down from me and Jack.

Even without catching a glimpse of the tornado myself I can say the weather was odd. Thunder, pouring rain, and brilliant sunshine all at the same time.

Anyway, just to prove I am not making it up (because when I saw it on Facebook I thought it was a hoax), here's the link to the local paper: http://www.lancasterguardian.co.uk/news/local/tornado-hits-lancaster-1-6664125

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
