My "Work" Look

This is very different to my "home" look - which is (usually grubby) jeans, t-shirt or vest, and a fleece or hoody. And NO make up.

I've been in meetings most of today - and not all of them nice ones. Dressing up a bit and applying the War Paint helps me feel able to face the day!!

This is "Working Charlie" instead of "Mumma Walker", my kids always know if Mummy is working today (which sadly usually sparks crying in my youngest). And I must look totally different because when I nipped into the local supermarket for some stationary on the way to my first meeting today I bumped into someone I have known for over 15 years and she didn't recognise me for about 5 minutes! She is used to seeing me with no makeup, hair all over, in those grubby jeans, and with at least one of the kids in tow. And a good deal heavier too!

Sadly my suit, designer specs, killer heals, and hot red lips didn't stop me from getting a parking ticket when the meeting over ran considerably.....

For anyone who is interested, my new lippy is a Rimmel Provocalips which really does last all flipping day with one application, even when I kiss ta-ta to Hubby, 4 kids, and then drink multiple cups of coffee. In fact I had to use baby oil to shift it after a full day in the office. This is one awesome lippy! I bought mine from Sainsburys but you can also get it online here.



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

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
