What We Are Eating W/C 31st March 2018

I can't believe that it is almost April already! It means it is nearly my birthday! It means it is a little over 50 days until the children have half term! It means a little over 100 days until the Summer Holidays starts!

What We Are Eating W/C 24th March 2018

Waking up Friday morning, I half-remembered a conversation I'd been having with Flyfour the night before about what meals he would like this week, the only thing I remember him asking for was Nachos for Saturday night and the rest was up to me. Which is fine, because I had a few ideas based on things we've loved or fancied recently!

So here is what we are eating this week!

Taco's and Burrito's everyone loves them right?

What We Are Eating W/C 17th March 2018

I know, you've all thought that I've starved the family over the last few weeks. Not only have no meal plans been published, but I havent posted a single cup of Hot Chocolate to Instagram nor any Salads. It's not true though! Really I've just cut back on the Hot Chocolate, I've forgotten to hit publish on the meal plans and it really isn't the weather for Salads in my humble opinion.

No, this is the weather for comfort food!


Piles of Steamed Veg, Casseroles and very yummy things that probably make our insides all happy with love added to every bite!

The February Family Resolution

On the surface, the February Family Resolution was a bit.. boring. It was, however, probably the most successful Family Resolution I could have imagined!

The idea for February was that we be well rested, this involved working out how much sleep we each needed, what we needed in order to go to sleep, and looking to see what helped motivate us to get up and going in the morning.

The Problem with being Smiley

The problems with being smiley aren't really that many. People may think you are more outgoing than you are, People may think you are crazy (try walking down a London street smiling at strangers, you'll see what I mean), People may... well, people may think you're me.

And then there is the real problem. Well, the real problem for me. You see, every morning when I walk Dan Jon Jr to School, we pass several people. Some are walking children to School, some parents are walking home from dropping their children at School, some are walking to other Schools, some are walking their dogs, some are just out for a morning constitutional and some are just neighbours who wave from their windows at the various families who walk past.

Dan Jon and I discuss various things that are of interest to us, we practice spellings and answer random math questions. We discuss what is happening after School, what we're having for our evening meal, what we are reading, what we thought of breakfast or a million other things, which on a five-minute journey is seriously impressive.
