Meal Planning Monday 17/06/19

I need this month to slow down as we have still got loads to do in preparation for our son’s 2nd birthday at the start of July.

The weekend we decided to head to Wales as it was our Nephews birthday last week, we headed over Saturday afternoon once the husband was home from work, it was lovely to see everyone again as we haven’t seen them since Christmas as they were down last month but we were on holiday.

The weather has been pretty rubbish here all of last week so i’m hoping to see it improve soon.

Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019 (Ad-Gifted)

It’s that time of the year where I have to start thinking about Fathers Day, and what to buy all the father figures in my life. I have my dad, a father-in-law and my husband – who is, an amazing dad to our little boy to buy for and i can’t be the only one that struggles to find things.  Take a look at the items below which may help you decide.

The RTC1000 Tyre Inflator – £49.99

Powered from the in-car 12V socket, it has a long 3.5m cable to help reach tyres all around the vehicle, comes with storage case and three-piece adapter kit, and includes spare valve caps and latex gloves.

Father’s Day Hamper – £28.99

Treat your Dad this Father’s Day with this gift which is guaranteed to make him feel special.

We have included everything needed for the perfect gentleman’s afternoon tea including the all-important mug as well as tea, chocolate, biscuits and cake – what more could he possibly ask for?

This wonderful hamper from Bunches combines all of the favourite things together.

Black Leopard

How about self care products, yes even men have to look after themselves too. These products from black leopard would be perfect for any men for a bit of self care.  I haven’t heard of this brand before either.

Moisturizer $55.00 for 100ml

Eye Cream $29.00

Snowdonia Cheese – £8.50

Who doesn’t like cheese? This duo pack makes the perfect gift.  A delightfully grown up pairing of our flagship Black Bomber extra mature Cheddar and vintage Red Leicester Red Storm , which compliments with a sweet and surprisingly complex flavour and a crystalline nutty texture throughout.

Love Layla Cards

Not forgetting cards, these funny cards are from Love Layla and you can choose from a large selection

Pull out Game Weak, £3.75

If I got Kidnapped, £3.75

Bulldog Energising Sheet Mask – £12.00

Take 10 minutes to relax and brighten tired, dull looking skin.

Our non-bleached sheet mask is made from bamboo and has been designed to instantly energise and revitalise tired skin. Containing rice, algae and maize, the pack contains 8x compressed masks and 100ml of sheet mask “essence” liquid.  Specially designed for men’s skin, there’s even a perforation to remove the bottom of the mask for beard wearers.

*We were sent these items free of charge for inclusion in this gift guide. However all thoughts and opinions are my own.

First full week back at work last week and it was hard, after a week of doing nothing.  I finally went food shopping mid week and I struggled to work out meals we were going to eat that were different.  I have done 5 loads of washing, deep cleaned the fridge and our suitcase was finally returned Tuesday evening to  my parents.

Me & My Boy #MySundaySnapshot

Apologises I didn’t post a picture last week, but our journey home from Spain was delayed for 2 hours and just didn’t have time to get it scheduled.

There aren’t many photo’s of just me and Freddie so I made sure I tried to get a few of us over the holiday and I love this one so much, think it is my favourite especially as we are both smiling.

Meal Planning Monday 03/06/19

Back to reality with a huge bump this week after eating and drink the all inclusive food and drinks for a whole 7 days, it’s been amazing and pure heaven.  Not having to get up for work or rush about (other than after a toddler).  A week of pure sun, sea, sand and a cocktail in my hand.

I think we will be living out the freezer and pantry foods this week as i’m been lazy and can’t be bothered to go shopping

This week I will be making:

Potato gnocchi with bacon and creamy cheese sauce and vegetables

Lamb shanks in red wine sauce with vegetables and creamy mash potato

Shepherds pie, veg and gravy

Jacket Potatoes, tune/mayo or cheese and beans with salad

Cheese and bacon quiche with salad

Chicken tikka with vegetable rice and jacket potatoes

Roast dinner with all the trimmings

What are you cooking this week?
