The start of December is nearly here and the count down to Christmas day is fast approaching.  Last week we stuck to our meal plan pretty well considering we have all been struggling with colds and coughs.  The nice thing now is the husband broke up from work on Wednesday last week till December so we can spend some quality family time together before the mad christmas rush.

This weeks meal plan consists of:

Creamy Cheese Chicken with Mash potato and vegetables

Spaghetti Bolognese & Garlic Bread

Hot Dogs, Chips and onions

Tuna Pasta Bake

Chicken, Bacon & Spinach Tagliatelle with cheese sauce

Pan Fried Pork

Roast Lamb Dinner with all the trimmings

The nights are getting shorter not to mention colder so hearty winter food is required.

It is getting harder to think of meals to cook which don’t take much time especially with a baby.

Well what a week! After finally tying the knot last week, we’ve been settling into life as husband and wife.  The husband had to return to work on Wednesday after two and half weeks off which is why I didn’t do a meal plan.

This month has been a crazy whirlwind one, starting off with me turning the big 30, more birthdays and our Wedding Day which we had been planning for the last 24 months.

Last week was a different sort of week as the Fiance had booked us 4 days away in a log cabin in the heart of the Stoke country side in a place called Cheadle for my 30th so couldn’t plan meals untill we got there.

This week is going to be another very busy and it’s the week of OUR WEDDING so will have to be quick and easy meals.  Friday I will be at my mums, Saturday will be our wedding menu food and Sunday is my nephews birthday so will be party style tea.

Injections, Doctor Foster & Hitting The Big 30 #LittleLoves

This week has just flown by in a blur, Monday I spent at my parents tying up lose ends for the wedding, Tuesday we went to Gymboree at Notcutts Garden Centre and confirmed final details for our wedding cake, Wednesday we had Freddie’s 2nd lot of Injections, Thursday was my 30th Birthday and Friday was spent getting organised for my birthday gathering on Saturday.


Still nothing sadly.  I have a book one of my best friends gave me for a baby shower gift which I am still yet to open the front cover.  She has it too and said it is brilliant.


We have started watching Doctor Foster, we were both a bit unsure whether to start watching it but now we just can’t stop now.  We watch atleast one or two episodes each night.  We have almost finished the series now.


Nothing but the other week I made some cakes, A Chocolate orange cake and Rolo cupcakes.  They were pretty good for a first attempt.


Starting to have to dig out my winter wardrobe clothes as the weather is on a very slow decline, with it becoming very windy and cold.  Think my Uggs are going to have to come out soon too.


The very upsetting news of yet another mass shooting in Las Vegas. My thoughts go out to all the families that may of lost a special someone in this devasting circumstances.

And Lastly

Its now 3 weeks till our BIG day and i’m getting very slightly nervous now about the whole thing but also very excited and can’t wait to become MRS COOPER!

Bathtime #My Sunday Photo

Our little Monkey Freddie hates baths but doesn’t mind showers so much, we try and shower him at least a couple times a week.  He is getting better slowly and not screaming the house down every time.

My favourite part is when I get to wrap him up in his cute animal Towels.

Today he will be my little elephant.
