Happy 1st July!!
This week is going to be super busy as it is our son’s 2nd Birthday party BBQ on Saturday and we still have so much to get achieved between now and then. I have booked Friday and the following Monday off work as his actually birthday is Monday so we can go out as a family and celebrate.

Hope you all have a great week
How are we even at the end of June? This month has just gone in a blink of an eye. Two weeks today and my little boy will be turning 2. Where has my baby gone?
Glad last week is out the way as we had a lot of rain but did managed to get in my garden a couple of times in the week and put some plants in that my mum treated me too.
This weeks Meal Planning Monday consists of:
Sausage, creamy mash, onion gravy and vegetables
Chicken in white wine sauce and basmati rice
Burritos and salad

Beef Stir Fry
Chicken goujons baguettes with salad and chips

I missed last weeks #Mysundaysnapshot as we were away in Wales visiting my sister in law.
It is very rare to get all 4 of us in one photo so it’s nice when we do. This was snapped by my father in law whilst on the beach and I love it, even if Carly isn’t looking at the camera.
It wasn’t the warmest day but was nice to visit the beach & sea again.
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.

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.

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.
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?
I don’t talk about our dog much and I don’t know why really as she’s the perfect dog. She’s loyal, loving and great with our little boy.
This is Carly our 7 year old Rottweiler we re homed her from a friend’s a few years ago now.
This is my last meal planning for a whole week as this Saturday we are flying off to Spain with my parents and nephew for the week and we can’t bloody wait. It’s the first holiday abroad we’ve had in over 3 years plus the first one with a Toddler so my anxiety is a bit all over the place too. Watch out for the holiday spam.
Sausage casserole bake
Chicken katsu, basmatic rice and salad
Lasagna with garlic bread
Pizza & Chips
Apologises I have failed at doing this the last two weeks, it’s been a bit crazy and completely forgot.
The other night Freddie was playing in the garden and spotted a worm he sat and watched it for ages then daddy had to look too. Once the worm had gone he kept saying “bye bye worm”. I think he is going to love nature.
