What We Are Eating W/C 22nd July


So the Summer holidays have officially started here at A Mother's Ramblings and we could not be happier. Six weeks (it is six weeks right?) of not much going on, of the children eating me out of house and home and hopefully, six weeks of us enjoying time together!

With that in mind, other than the weekend meals the rest aren't planned... just sort of in the back of our mind so we can have a week of using up the odds and ends we have here!

Dan Jon Funnies - Giants

Over the last few weeks, Dan Jon has been cracking us up with his jokes and misheard moments, so here is one of these that we hope you'd like to read and enjoy giggling at with us!

When we had decorated Dan Jon's bedroom, we had a few days gap between dismantling his old bed, painting the bedroom, having his new carpet laid and of course finally having his bed delivered and put together.

This meant, much to Dan Jon's delight that he was sleeping on a mattress on the floor of his bedroom. It was to his delight because Dan Jon hated the cabin bed he had been sleeping on and much preferred the bed on the ground thing.

Wonderland #Review

Top Ender and I joked a little in a live Facebook video that we were thinking of skipping going to the Theatre and instead going out to eat. We, of course wouldn't have done that because we love the Theatre and we love seeing new shows and we'd already eaten... not that that would have stopped us, we're both foodies.

Anyway. We had heard a little about Wonderland from my friends in the Theatre world and from the blogs and forums I follow that talk about the Theatre. From what I could tell, it was a good show one that was suitable for children aged six and older and this adaptation, set in the modern world and given a contemporary update worked well for both the audience members who knew the story of Alice and for those who were totally new to it.

So we went off to the theatre, was totally recognised and found our seats and waited for the show to begin.

What We Are Eating W/C 15th July 2017

The last few weeks have gone so fast, I can't believe how quickly they have passed! I think that's the thing about having all the works going on in my house, it's really helped the time to pass! With that in mind, this is what is happening this week in our house and what we're eating.

What We Are Eating W/C 8th July 2017

This morning, whilst you are waking up in your nice warm beds, I'm waking up (if I ever went to bed that is) in a cold tent. So whilst you are enjoying your warm, comfortable bed just take a moment to think of me okay?
