Midwife has been

Midwife has been, took note of all my symptoms and took my blood. She thinks it's still the anaemia too.
She's going to get the test results tomorrow and call me. Worst case: hospital for a transfusion. Hopefully won't come to that, but they can't increase my iron tablets. They might change them. If i do have to have blood given it should only be a few hrs max and she can't see any reason why I couldn't take Freddie & keep him fed. I'm not expressing well (lower milk supply prob due to anaemia too) or I'd leave him with his daddy & a bottle.

You know, "bed rest" (or sofa rest in my case) is great in theory, and awesome for a day or two. But I'm getting fed up now. I want to go and do stuff with the kids. I want to go and show Freddie off. And I want to be able to breathe while I'm doing it.

I'm bored of laying about, bored of watching Netflix, bored of reading my kindle, bored of my apps and Facebook... I want to go OUT! I really resent being ill. My brain is itching to do stuff and my body won't let me.

I am frustrated and tired to the point of tears. It's the summer sodding holidays! So far the kids have been to the park and played in the garden while I sat on my arse. We're supposed to be going to Blackpool Tower, Dalton Zoo, the beach, splash parks....... Not stuck at home because my blood is thin as ****

Sorry. Rant over. Just needed to get it off my chest.

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
