That Pinterest Wardrobe! #Motivation

Admit it, you all have one, right? A Pinterest Board with all the clothes you'd love to wear if you could just drop those last few pounds? It's there... next to the dream house and all the things you promise yourself you'll make one day.

I certainly have one! It's full of all the things I want to wear to the Office when I go back in May. When I'm at home with the kids I am always going to be a jeans & t-shirt mum. I have four boys. Boys are messy. Being glamorous is not something I want to be bothered with then. And I rarely hit the pubs and bars any more - again with a nursling and 3 older kids, finding the time, opportunity, energy, and money all at the same time is a truly rare thing! So my best chance to look dressed up is at work. I have a nice little office job, it's clean, tidy, with little walking involved (part of why I'm over weight I guess) so I can get away with FAB clothes! And shoes!

I am LOVING looking at clothes that will suit a slimmer me. I am pinning away at bright colours and bold patterns that I've not felt comfortable in since I gained weight. I'm finding outfits that shout LOOK AT ME instead of ones that help be fade into the back ground. I honestly had no idea I was swerving so many things I liked because of my size until I stopped doing it!

There are soooo many gorgeous things out there that will look awesome on the hourglass figure that is emerging from under all this excess!

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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


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
