I have had quite a busy week again this week but it has been enjoyable....
My two younger children went back to school on Monday but my eldest was off so she stayed with Nanna and Grandad, she went to town and had her hair cut in a "Jessie J" style bob and she looks absolutely gorgeous but about 3 years older than she is ;oO. It is amazing how a cut and blow dry can give someone a bit of confidence, so it was worth the money just for that.
Tuesday was St David's Day so my two younger children went to school in their welsh costumes and I did a Wales inspired singalong in work...so I had a wonderful day...once that was out the way it was time to think of what to wear for World Book Day!!! To add to it the primary school wanted it to be a character from a book that they had read in school...easy you might think but my children go to a Welsh Medium School!!! Luckily they have read Harry Potter in Welsh so that was my son sorted and to my delight my youngest daughter wanted to go as a character I cant spell but it turned out they were a black cat!! Marvellous!!! Ears on a headband, eyeliner on the face and a tail made out of strips of leather I had-Phew!!
In between all of this I had volunteered to deliver "Yes for Wales" leaflets before the referendum(500 to be exact) that kept me fit!! Thursday was the actual referendum day and Friday the count...I was asked to be a counting agent by one of the councillors in the area I live...I didn't know what to expect and it was very interesting....the Yes vote went through at about 65-35% in favour ...only time will tell what difference it will make to my life...I don't pay for prescriptions which is marvellous and as I type University and college fees will remain cheaper for students studying here or in England because they will be subsidised.
And today I went to a creative writing workshop with my father and my daughter. It was amazing and I feel like it was the little shove I needed to start getting into writing poetry on a regular basis! I feel like I have my creative writing "Mojo" back...there are another 3 workshops so I will keep you posted!
I didn't stick rigidly to my meal plan last week as the children wanted chicken curry instead of fajitas and pasta yesterday instead of pizza. I was fine with this as I had things in the cupboards so didn;t have to shell out for more food.
Anyhow here is this weeks menu:-
MONDAY: BEEFBURGERS AND CHIPS(ALL OVEN COOKED)
TUESDAY: TURKEY MINCE AND SWEET POTATO SHEPHERDS PIE AND PANCAKES
WEDNESDAY: MOTHER IN LAWS FOR TEA(YAY!!)
THURSDAY: BEEF CASSEROLE, POTATOES AND VEGETABLES
FRIDAY; CHICKEN FAJITAS
SUNDAY: LAMB ROAST DINNER
All I should need to get for next week is the lamb and some chicken for the end of the week...so it's all good!!
I am hoping to be doing some planting next week too!
I start Lent on Wednesday which entails me giving up cakes, crisps, sweets, etc as well as not going on FACEBOOK.. I am also going to be limiting my time on here to 30 mins a day!!! Talk about cold(ish) turkey!!! :o)))))
I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
