Where does the time go???

'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 would like to enter this into:

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!!)

Thanks for looking and reading my waffling
