Greenlands Farm Village - Bush Trial!

My Mum came to visit today so we took the kids out (apart from Jack who stayed home with Daddy). We let them choose. Georgie shouted "Animal Farm!" and Tom followed that with "Can we go to the one with the Boo Barn?!" - That was the Halloween event at Greenlands Farm Village! So off we went.

We arrived in time for Tom & Georgie to get on the donkeys for another ride about. This time they went a different way round the farm this time too so that worked out brilliantly for them. Georgie loved getting to ride on George The Donkey again - it really tickles him that they share the same name!

Tom remembered his way round really well and lead the way so he could show Nana all the animals. He couldn't wait to show her the ducks! Then we watched the lads play in the hay barn while I fed Freddie. We took a look at the collie pups and watched as some escapee piglets got rounded up and put back in their pen with mummy pig - squealing piglets! What a noise! We made time for the petting zoo too, and one guinea pig seemed to want to climb into George's pocket and come home with us!

Tom was still chattering about the Boo Barn and I was trying to explain that Halloween was over now, we'd have to come back and see if they were doing anything for Christmas next month... when the door opened and the young lady who had been in the Boo Barn with them came out. She remembered us! And there WAS a new event... an "I'm a Celebrity" themed one! So in we went (but not Nana who is phobic about snakes!)

Inside were a row of tanks with hissing cockroaches, mealworms, snakes, "mystery items" and fake blood, all there for dipping your hands in if you dare! And at the end... the very last challenge.... EAT A MEALWORM! The lass handed out a tub of mealworms (dead ones!) and offered them to Tom & George, who both accepted and ate one! Tom pulled a face like you wouldn't believe - but it didn't come back out. Georgie took a second one!!!


They got a packet of chocolate button each for their bravery (or to take the taste away) and a great story to tell back at school & nursery on Monday!

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

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
