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 🙂

My Monday happy meal
Happy Monday…gosh another day nearly gone..Another dinner to make.
I find Mondays tough…I love relaxed weekends, where we go at our own leisurely pace…we never plan much as its our down time. But all too soon we return to Monday, the day of hustle and bustle. Clearing up the general trail of toys and discarded mugs..Back to shipshape and the weekly shop.
Today I bought some lovely mince at the butchers and some freshly baked bread cakes …so tonight it will be Happy Meal night. Not much cooking, a homemade burger containing only real food. And some tasty chips, made from nothing but potatoes, a splash of oil and a sprinkle of salt. Our free toy is a spanking brand new book each, to read at bedtime. After that all we need is a bath and PJs, a mug of hot chocolate and a square of home baked shortbread.
Thanks for reading
