Review: I Am Lost - Wrist bands and lables

I think most parents have a "lost toy" story to share. I know I have! And I also know that the more kids you have the more stuff you have to lose. My lot seem to be especially good at losing things. Only a few weeks ago Jack went on a camp with Beavers and managed to lose an entire days worth of clothes without having even worn them! With my boys taking up so many clubs and activities that require changing clothes and carrying various things around with them the probability of losing things is ramped up almost daily!

It doesn't help that my kids have all wound up with names that are very common popular at the moment. So simply scrawling their names on labels is rarely enough, even our surname is pretty commonplace!

So what can be done? 

The creators of "I Am Lost" seem to have hit the nail on the head here. Their system allows people who find a lost item to key in a number on the "I A Lost" app or directly on their website. You are given a number when you sign up and there are a range of ways to label your things from stamps to sewn on labels to detachable tags. From there they can send a message to the owner to let them know it's been found. Both parties can then message each other through "I Am Lost" (so no one has anyone else's personal details) and arrange to get the lost property back to it's owner!

There are a nice selection of packages available to buy so you can label up what ever you need.

There's also a brilliant "I Am Lost" Child package, which works in a similar way for for LOST CHILDREN! Again, all you would need to do if you found a child with the special "I Am Lost" bracelet is key in the number (in the plastic strip inside the bracelet) and the app or website will give you the contact numbers of the parents/guardians of the child. It even allows you to call them directly from your PC!

It's a brilliant idea. Our older two children know my mobile number now, and our littlest man is generally fastened to me in his sling, so if any of our kids were likely to get lost and not be able to find his way back to me it would be Georgie - at 2 years old he's too young to remember my number and too old to be tied to me like Baby Freddie - so he wears the "I Am Lost" bracelet when we go some where he's not familiar with. And we're busy stamping, sewing, and labelling toys, school uniforms, sports kits, and scouting gear pretty much all the time!

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
