Docker Park Farm during October Half Term

We went to Docker Park Farm this Summer and the kids had an awesome time, so I had promised them a return trip at Half Term.

This time Nana came with us, and because it's Autumn now - and dark and damp - the prices are slashed. Adults go free, and kids aged 2+ are only £5!

The paddocks are closed at this time of year, but the play areas are still open and you can still visit the pigs, goats, and petting zoo animals. These are my boys favourite parts so it's perfect for us.

We were lucky to have a bright and sunny, if cool day. But it wouldn't have mattered if it had been pouring with rain because pretty much everything is under cover.

The boys had a brilliant time playing in the barns and riding about on the tractors. Me and Mum managed to sit back and relax with a couple of extremely nice coffees and catch up on all the gossip confident that the boys were adventuring in safety.

We did also treat them to lunch in the cafe - the food is lovely - and they had a play with some of the toys in there and did word searches and puzzles in the warm. Jack even managed to lean a new word: chitting (we had to Google that). Mum and I spoiled our selves with a slice of home made pumpkin pie, which was just delicious!

It's a brilliant day out. And if you managed to get there on Halloween this year they are having a Halloween Crafts day - at no extra cost.

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
