Another post men should not read (you have been warned)

I know now for a fact that we will not be planning any more kids. This is it. We have the four children we'd always said we wanted. I'm 35 now and I always said I wanted to be done having babies by the time I was 35. We cannot afford more kids, there is no more room in our house for more kids. WE. ARE. DONE.

So now I need to make sure it stays that way...

This week I underwent one of the least pleasant experiences of my adult life! I rate it as less pleasant that getting a sweep to induce labour, less comfortable that a smear test, and less dignified than just about any other medical procedure I have ever endured... I had a mirena coil fitted.

Two ladies performed the fitting (one was training), while a third "chatted" with me to help take my mind off the fact that someone had jacked open my private parts and seemed to be peering up them while supporting a head torch and wielding odd looking medical apparatus. The phrase "you might feel some slight discomfort" was used right before I almost bit through my own lip trying not to swear and threaten physical violence...! The water colour painting of a beach scene blu-taced to the ceiling tile above my head was less of a distraction that you might have imagined at that point.

Oh... and can I suggest that you DON'T Google Image Search mirena coil fitting.

Needless to say it not something I am looking to repeat any time soon. Sure, they last for 5 years, but you know, the whole experience has just convinced me further that my best option - once Freddie has stopped breastfeeding - is to go and get my tubes tided. That's something they can do while I'm knocked out!

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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
