It has been a while since I did one of these posts, I love my meal planning, it keeps me sane most of the time, the no stressing about what to have for dinner each night is just fab!
So here is our meal plan for this week -
Monday – Chicken Curry (using up leftovers from yesterday’s roast chicken)
Home Made Pizza – I thought this would be a great thing to do together after school, Molly has ballet on Tuesdays so something quick and simple is always on the menu.
Wednesday – Fish Pie
Thursday – Lentil Bolognese – you can see the recipe for this here
Friday – Bacon egg and chips (just because you can be naughty on a Friday night – right? yum yum yum!)
Saturday – Spicy Nachos
Sunday – Roast dinner of some sort (probably beef!)
So that is us for the week, I feel like I have started the week quite organised so far, back to school tomorrow for us, so lets see how long I feel organised for once we get to the end of the week!!

Before I write this post, I do feel I need to let you know that I don’t usually do pets, and I especially don’t like dogs.
So I am really happy to introduce to you the latest addition to our beautiful little family.
Our little Buster
So I suppose Buster is technically a dog – but he was too damn cute to resist! After a teeny tiny amount of persuasion, I managed to convince The Husband that we needed Buster in our lives, and eventually he agreed! It did take me a few months though, but I got there in the end.
Now my dislike of pets in general is based around the fact that generally they are hard work, really hard work and I don’t need anymore of that in my life, however Buster is totally adorable in every way so he doesn’t actually count. Having said that, it has been a big change for us all having him around.
Molly is just like me in that she is not that keen on Dogs, but having one of her own has really built her confidence a lot and she is not so nervous now as she was before around other Dogs. Alfie is totally in love and him and Buster have been firm friends since before he even arrived to live with us.
He has settled into the family like he has always been here and we are all totally in love, we are all looking forward to lots of adventures with Buster for many years to come.
It has been a whole 2 months since my last post! 2 MONTHS! Shocking really, my blog used to be something I wrote on daily, I loved it, I looked forward to creating posts and working on new ideas, I loved writing about life in general, celebrating when the kids did something amazing and moaning when they were a compete pain in the backside and everything in-between.
But life has simply just gotten in my way to be honest. For the last 9 months, I have been more or less on my own during the week with a toddler and a 4 year old (I am not sure what to call her anymore, doesn’t seem right to call her a toddler, but I am not able to bring myself to class her as a child – she is of course still a baby after all and never allowed to grow up!). My husband has been working his socks off on the most annoying shift known to man and I have been working 2 jobs – as you do. So, my blog you see, along with anything else I used to enjoy doing like seeing friends and having a nice time, has become somewhat neglected.
I have had lots to say, and lots and lots to blog about, but no time to actually come out and say it. I am sure lots of you will have been glad of the break from my ramblings, but I am going to try to be better from now on. You see, as of this week we are once again back to some sort of a normal routine (whatever normal happens to be!). The Husband has very cleverly gone and got himself a DAY JOB – yes you read it right, a job working days, not nights, not weekends, not stupid o’clock shifts, just days – it’s amazing isn’t it?! So I am one very happy Singing Mummy (very exhausted too if I am totally honest today), but very happy!
In my mind this should theoretically give me a little bit more time to hide away from everyone and blog every now and again, but I am not going to make any promises, but I am going to live in hope and try my very, very hardest, because I have really missed my teeny tiny corner of cyber space. So WATCH THIS SPACE and you never know, another post might just appear sooner than you expect it too!
