Tom turns 7!

This was hard for me. I had to leave the house just after 5am today to get to work. It meant I could finish be half 2 and be home before 4pm, but it's the first time I haven't been there to wish one of my babies a happy birthday when they've woken up. The first time I haven't been there while they opened their presents. And it's left a horrible feeling in my gut.

But I think he's had a nice day - after all it wasn't cancelled following a threat to that manner yesterday from Daddy when he found out Tom had written a very naughty word on one of my degree canvases so he should be grateful for that if nothing else.

We went to the cinema tonight, myself, the birthday boy, Jack and George. Fred is still too small for anything that isn't a cartoon and Daddy stayed home with him. Despite the photo of Minions it was actually the last (allegedly) instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise (and not Wonder Woman either, boo!) which is what Tom had chosen.

We ate the Death Star Cake - without tears and with added ice-cream - and the take away tea has been put on hold for tomorrow so that we could actually get to the cinema and back before Mummy fell asleep.

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. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
