Monday is the day I dig out the house after the weekend…collecting stray cups and hoovering up the dust bunnies.
Some times I shop, but generally we eat up what we have. We converted to wholemeal bread over the weekend, so the feedback from packed lunches and dinner will be interesting…
Tonight shall be eggy bread, bacon and beans,(even I shall miss the white bread on this one 😦 Mushrooms for me too (the children wont even try them. grrr).
I shall light the wood burner and put clean sheets on the beds. There is something homely about the start of the week, when we return tired from school and work.
If I get my butt in gear there may be flapjack or cherry buns for supper (and packed lunches), but more likely bananas and custard for them…crisps for me. (hey I am not perfect and need some Mummy time..I might even have a glass of vino when they finally sleep.)
I must make sure I don’t sit down too soon and lose my momentum…
Happy Monday 🙂

41…where did the time go???
Arrghh..it is so long since I have blogged I am now another year older. Time is flying faster than ever, but cooking is still a priority.
I love quiet parties..so it was just the 6 of us. Myself and my 5 favourite loved ones.
It is easy to overcomplicate celebration, so I was gentle with myself..(sort of.)
There was wine..obviously…and beef, which I never thought I could cook well. But I liked the idea of hot sandwiches and cold sides and plenty of chips 🙂 (all hail the Actifry.)
It must of being a birthday blessing, I managed to cook 3 pieces to cater for all, one well done, one medium, one rare. More luck than practice, but easy and care free….the cake was provided by my Love and I think we all ate well. We took photos..Never let teenage boys be incharge of a camera lol.) and made more memories.
Simple things make me smile.
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy day..it was.
And now well pjs, a beef salad, the last glass of wine and an early night….I am getting old after all 🙂
love and hugs
