Excited as I was to have a meal plan for last week, we didn’t really stick to it. We got some exciting news in the form of a start date for our building work on the house, and its a lot sooner than we expected so we’ve been having a mad rush to get prep

When Piglet was born the one thing I felt totally indifferent about was weaning. I was never particularly excited about getting him started on “real” food. Quite happily plodding along with milk I just assumed we would start weaning at 6 months. The guidelines these days state you should start weaning at 6 months, and

Amy from The Smallest Of Things tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood tag. I like the idea of it, as the general idea is you list 10 ways in which you are rocking motherhood. In a world full of criticism and doubt it is meant to be a pat on the back. Sounds great right? In

New year – new meal plan! Over the festive period I didn’t do any meal planning and I hated it. Food shopping was a nightmare because I didn’t know what we’d need and when. Our diet definitely suffered for it as did our bank balance. Part of me is keen for a fresh start and

Back when I was working full time we would start each year by setting targets and action plans for the following 12 months. Although I found it a real bugbear at the time, it really is a good way to acknowledge progress. In August last year I shared my blogging goals for 2016, so it

Christmas and New Year is the ultimate party food time. All I want to do is ditch proper meals and over indulge on tasty treats, little nibbles and cheese! Most of the time I manage to reign myself in (apart from with the cheese….. I’ve no control when it comes to cheese) but if there

Things are winding down around here for Christmas. I don’t intend to blog over the festive period, I want to spend the time with my family. Eating my weight in junk food, visiting relatives and encouraging Piglet to crawl! I’ve seen a few people do the Christmas Tag, so I thought I would jump on

I know I said last week that I wasn’t gong to do a meal plan this week – but I lied! I’ve decided I’ll do one more week this year. I’m not going to stress too much about sticking rigidly to it for JHogg and I, but having a basic plan will help me out
