Hubby's Birthday aka Skylanders Trap Team Day!

Skylanders Trap Team! *Homer Simpson style drooooooool*

We have all - me, Hubby, and the kids - been jumping up and down impatiently for Trap Team for MONTHS! The kids, especially Tom, have been watching tons of promo stuff on YouTube, and we adults (I use the term loosely) have been counting down the days since before the Summer.

Luckily for us, Trap Team Day also happens to be Hubby's birthday! So I had a good excuse a perfectly valid reason to spend an obscene amount of money on Skylanders merchandise.

For months we have been scouring the interweb looking for exclusives, best deals, "delivery on the day of release", and so on. We also bagged a wee discount from our local Game store in exchange for some Twitter promotion - social media truly is a wonderful thing and our local Game store staff are genuinely FAB.

By the end of the day we had accumulated Wii U and Wii Dark Edition games, all the available trap masters and minis, all the available new standard characters, a good collection of traps, and put our names down for the adventure packs. Please don't tot that up....

Most of this has been stashed for Christmas, a good chunk is Hubby's for his birthday (the game itself for example) and we all have a new character or two to play with right now. Hubby took the day off so he could collect our Game store order, I stayed home to receive the online orders, and we spend the day getting well stuck in to the game before Jack & Tom came home from school. At this point I lost my controller to Jack!

It's likely to be Monday (school!) before I get another chance to play because boys will be boys and they want to play together (that includes the Husband btw) but that's ok because I have my own save game on medium while there's is on easy. And no one will complain that I keep pausing it to "mum stuff" like cook, change nappies, feed the baby etc...

WE LOVE SKYLANDERS!

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
