Why I meal plan and how?

Standard

Planning meals is very important to me, I don’t bother with breakfast or lunch, but focus on dinner time, as that what works for me.

Meal planning for me is essential, as we do end up splurging on food that didn’t get used, and that ends up in the bin. So meal planning to me is very important.

I go by first of all what we already have, so that food gets used up and then go on what else we need for the week ahead. I will do a grocery haul soon.

I have created a meal planning printables so go and check them out below.

Meal Planner Dinners for the week in blue

I always meal plan from Saturday onwards, as that’s when we do our shopping, but you can create a meal planner of your own and arrange the days that work for you, these are just some ideas and tools if you too wish to meal plan.

I hope you find this useful and helps you with saving money on food.

Celebrating the Easter Holidays

Standard

It was a good two weeks off, I was working through part of it, but still got to enjoy the holiday.

My son got to do lots of adventurous things, like riding on a bus and train which he loves. He was taken on a Thomas The Tank Engine Train, and didn’t want to get off.

We took him to a funfair in Wimbledon Park, which is on a lot during the Easter Holidays, only once a year, but my son and my nieces loved it.

Then my mum put together an Easter Egg hunt, for my son and my nieces and put around the gardens in the school where my mum lives.

Putting together an Easter Egg hunt is fun to do, and you can make your own, check out my blog I wrote on The Parenting Adventures tips and tricks, called

What to do with your kids during the Easter Holidays

All you need is to hide a load of eggs and my mum used Easter Chocolate coins aswell, write some clues or for smaller children, get them to see how many eggs they can find, and a different section, put their names by them so they know which ones to look for.

So what did you do over the Easter holidays I would love to hear from you?

A Great Weekend

Standard

Last weekend was brilliant celebrating my friends 40th birthday last Saturday.

We had a little hiccup, where by our hotel accommodation was moved, and we ended up staying instead of So Arch Hotel, stayed at the So Kings Cross hotel.

Would not recommend the room was very basic, at a cost of £107.40 and the breakfast the next morning was great either.

We decided to have a bite to eat and found a Italian Restaurant, which I could imagine being in Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares. There appeared to be a lot of arguing among the staff, and not a lot of serving going on.

Then we went for a coffee in Costa near the train station, which was a much better atmosphere, and good service.

We then sat outside of a bit as it was a nice afternoon, and sat and watched these people doing the Salsa in the middle of the square there.

We went onto the N19 in Archway, to celebrate my friends birthday, and got there for 6pm and watched the rest of the football. Then they had a band on, which were good and very entertaining.

The next day I was feeling a bit rough, but was well worth it as it was a great weekend.
