Got my babies back


2pm I rolled up at the camp site and was met my a host of leaders from different Beaver groups. I was asked which child was mine and got shocked looks when I said I was picking up SIX! But one of our leaders spotted me and all my charges were found and bundled into the car. He also told me that my cakes were the first to get scoffed (which always pleases me to hear, especially when other parents are having cakes shoved back at them to take home - really can do without the temptation).

Somehow we crammed all the stuff back into the car. Jack called some of the mums to let them know we were on our way back to the scout hut, and with the only exception of one Beaver feeling a bit ill as we came round the town centre, it was a thankfully uneventful drive back. I did at one point ask if they'd had fun, and who had earned a new badge, and was almost deafened by the reply!

They had fun!

Very quiet for the rest of the day. I chucked my boys in the shower when they got home and they spent the rest of the day in their PJs playing on their tech while I washed all the gear and started a "lost and found" post on our scout groups Facebook page. Then it was pizza and bed....

It's Beavers again tomorrow, and Cubs too for Jack. Our first session without a hut of our own to go to. Going to be interesting getting everyone where they need to go, and in time!

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
