I seem to have traded George in for a Ninja Turtle!


This is the cheeky chappy I picked up from nursery today.

Just for a change I arrived bang on time to pick George up (more luck than judgement as I'd been out for a walk with Freddie and a friend of mine). As I waited for George to come out I was passed by a few kids with their faces painted - including one of Georgie's two best buddies. He was done up like a Turtle (Donatello apparently, the purple one). And I just knew that George would be a Turtle too! I turned to my friend and said "bet you anything he say's he's Michaelangelo!"

Sure enough George came bursting out of the nursery with a green face and orange eyes! (Yes I know it looks red in the photo). "Mummy! Mummy! Look! I'm Mikey! I'm a Turtle!!!!"

One seriously happy boy!

Until bed time and it had to be washed off. And it really did.... after an afternoon at home, and his tea, it was less Ninja Turtle and more Horrific Zombie! He had snook up behind his dad to show him his Turtle face as soon as daddy had come home from work. Unfortunately Hubs was on the stairs taking his boots off and in the half light saw a small, green, melted face loom up at him with biiiiig red eyes. It was not the response George was after - but he liked it anyway! Hee hee hee!

Poor George had a screaming fit at the face paint being washed off but eventually I calmed him down, reminded him we have face paints at home too (somewhere........) and we could do it again at the weekend. He didn't believe me until I pointed out that mummy paints her face every day for work, takes it off before bed, and does it all again the day after.

I think I'm going to have to dig out those face paints!

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
