Parklife #MySundaySnapshot

Happy 1st September, we are off on our holidays this week so I won’t be joining in with this for a couple of weeks.  As soon as I return normal schedules will resume.

We took a trip to the park round the corner from us as the weather was decent, little man was loving life going up and down, round and round.  We spent a good hour there and he cried when we had to go home.

Do your kids love the park?

Happy Sunday!

Meal Planning Monday 26/08/19

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!

This time next week I will on a plane flying off on my holidays for 10 days.  Can’t wait.  I will try and not make you jealous by posting to many photos on Instagram and Facebook.

Last weeks meal plan was a bit hit and miss and I still never went food shopping and we had takeaway pizza from dominoes on Wednesday night.

We had a lovely but busy weekend as the husband was working then out at a friends birthday, I had my hair done so sent Freddie to my  parents.  Then Sunday I went for afternoon tea with my mum, my best friend and her mum.  Perfect bank holiday.

This week we are having:

Fake away Chinese food

Garlic & lemon salmon with salad (me) & burgers (husband)

Chicken curry, rice/chips, naan and poppodums

Meatballs & spaghetti

Beef stir fry with egg noodles and vegetables

Tuna pasta bake

Takeaway

I won’t be posting a meal plan for two weeks after this week and I will be back on the 16th September.

Hope you all have a great bank holiday whatever your up to.  

Cosy Bedtime #MySundaySnapshot

Freddie turned 2 in July and his room can get quite cold but was nervous about getting him a quilt and pillow because he’s such a fidget bum.

So last weekend we finally brought Freddie a quilt and pillow set from Mothercare.

Just look how cute he looks cuddled up to his teddy.

What age did you give your little one a quilt and pillow set?

The weather was also hit and miss last week, just want us to have a proper summer now.

This week I must go shopping as we don’t really have much in to cook.

Well, Hello August, Nice to see you.

I really don’t know where this year has gone, it’s crazy.  Last weeks meal plan was inspired by my husband for a change and he choose the meals we had.  He loved the southern fried chicken wraps so I think that is going to be a new favourite go to meal for us.

Spaghetti bologenese with spiralized courgette

Slow cooked chicken curry and basmatic rice

Bacon & cheese quiche with Savory beef rice & salad

Roast dinner with all the trimmings

What are you cooking this week?

Pretty Flowers #MySundaySnapshot

I love flowers even if my husband thinks and calls them dead plants.  they just brighten up the house no matter the weather. I will try and pick a few bunches up every time I go shopping.

They are placed in several places around the house like in the kitchen, lounge, hall and even the bathroom.  I find carnation last much longer than other flowers normally too.

Do you have a favourite type of flower?

Meal Planning Monday 29/07/19

How are we at the end of July already? This week has been crazy and has flown by.

Last weeks meal plan went good again, I finally went food shopping after not going properly for a few weeks due to various things.  We had a bit of a heatwave and a huge thunderstorm last Tuesday so we didn’t get much sleep.

The last few meals I have made the husband has moaned he is going off part or all of it so I have been struggling for meals to do, so this week I asked him to write down what he wanted so I could shop accordingly and the below is what he has chosen.  Do you ask your partner what they want to eat?

Lasagna (His favourite all time meal)

Tuna Pasta Bake

Enchiladas

Shepherds Pie

Southern Fried Chicken wraps & Salad

Meatballs

Burgers (No chips)

Does your partner decided on meals or do you decide all?

Have a great week all

Mum’s 65th Birthday Party #MySundaySnapshot

I’ve been so rubbish keeping up to date with doing this linky.  I try and do it the same time as I do my meal planning Mondays for the week but seem to be failing miserable.

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago it was my mum’s 65th Birthday, she didn’t want to do anything but we weren’t going to let it pass without.  Me & dad arranged a surprise gathering at their house with her closest family & friends.  Dad took her out for a late lunch and when they arrived home we were all in the garden.
