As its Monday its also time for Mrs M's mealplan - hmmm this week its a bit fly by the seat of your pants - money is a bit tight - so trying to use stuff up in the cupboards/freezer: Monday: Chicken Tikka and rice (all for tea) Tuesday: Beef Casserole (all for tea) Wednesday: Soup & Pizza (me & kids) Thursday: Minty lamb burgers (me & kids) Friday: not sure - hubby going to sort out as its only for me & him. Saturday: Quiche, salad & new pots Sunday: Dinner at mums again - light tea (sandwiches or toasties)
Monday: All for tea - Sausage Casserole with the recipe from Freycobs food blog. As a nice surprise my hubby had done it and it was in the oven as I walked in from work - and it smells delish!!
Tuesday: There is only me needing something, as kids at Nannas, Ian at work - so probably a bowl of soup.
Wednesday: Only me & the kids for tea - sweet & sour chicken and rice
Thursday: All for tea Sweet & spicy Bellypork and veg/jkt potatoes (not had this before I have taken advantage of the £5 voucher in The Mail for M&S and this was on a meat deal) - love M&S food but dont buy it very often unless there is money off of the meal deal lol
Friday: Kids possibly at Nannas - Ian at work - I could be out for my mums birthday - wont know for definate until later in the week.
Saturday: Possibly only me & Ian for tea Plaice fillets (part of the M&S offer) and chips.
Sunday: Mothers Day - probably at my mums for lunch :-)
Right hope we've got some crusty bread to have with the casserole yum!!
First I just want to blog this card I have made for Ians son:
He plays guitar and sings in a local rock?? band - not sure what genre they are loud screamy stuff - lol - how old does that make me sound!! So I thought this Stamping Boutique image was very suitable.
The paper is from my stash and then embossed some mirricard the image was coloured with pro-markers and glossy accents added to the guitar the little stars came from Debbie.
Postie came a knockin' today so that cheered up a grey day The Travelling Craft Box that LaaLaa arranged - I received the box from Heather at Pink Milk - I cant reveal what was in the box but can show a piccie of what I received from Heather:
The cutest mouse which matches the colour scheme in my living room so he has taken up residence on the mantlepiece, choccie (yum), cross stitch fabric/chart and love which I might have a go at painting. Huge thanks xxx
'cor I cant believe how quickly time is passing - hopefully I'll be back to working my normal hours soon and will hopefully feel I am back on top of things, so before Jack comes in from school I'd quickly do this post.
As I mentioned before March is a bit mad for birthdays and it is my mums next week, so here is her card - be prepared theres lots of pink!!
The image is a cute lotv freebie that was with a magazine - coloured with promarkers, the paper, flowers and doily from my stash the sentiment is a craftwork cards one. With her birthday so near to Mothers Day sometimes its on the same day - its tricky trying to come up with two different styles - lol.
I am also late posting my meal plan monday with At Home with Mrs M - oops - sorry, a bit late but here it is: Monday: Just me & the boys for tea(Ian at work until after 8) - Jacket potato and cheesy beans ( and chicken griddlers for the boys) Tuesday: bit of a nightmare running around - Tom at his nannas, Jack at Rugby until 6.30, me at work until 6 Ian at work until 8 - so Tom had is tea with his nanna and then when we finally got in me & Jack went to the chip shop. Wednesday: Beef & ale casserole (cooking at this moment and smelling delish) - a Jamie Oliver recipe so fingers crossed its ok. (all for tea) Thursday: All for tea - will put a chicken curry in the slow cooker. Friday: Boys could be at their nannas - not sure yet. Me & Ian out for tea for a retirement do - havent been out in a group for ages feeling a bit apprehensive I dont really like going out with his work colleagues - if any of you read this - no offence!! lol Saturday: not sure who's here for tea so will say a salad and adapt accordingly Sunday: Roast dinner and soup & sandwiches for tea.
Finally we had a locum in at work who told me about a Zumba class she goes to on a Wed Morning, as I wasnt meeting my mum this week I thought I'd give it a go as I am a total wimp where anything sporty is involved lol - well I went this morning for my first ever Zumba class - well what a hoot I loved it - so if anybody is thinking of trying it - DO - its so much fun really looking forward to next week - and I've never felt like that about any other type of fitness - my mum (who is in here 70's loves her class too!!)
Hi, I am a 40 year old mum to two gorgeous boys, and wife to the lovely patient Ian. I work part-time to fund my new card making hobby - which I have become totally addicted to - thanks to all the lovely ladies on MSE.
