I am always saying that meal planning keeps me sane. It means that I stick within our food budget for the week, and takes away the unknown when it comes to dinner time. We don’t reach for the takeaway menus because we can’t be bothered to think of something to cook – the ingredients are

Every 6 months or so I head back to the hospital for a check-up, a bit like a diabetes MOT. When I was first diagnosed they were a bit daunting. I didn’t know what to expect, where to go, what to do and what was in it for me. It used to feel like I

It’s been a while since I wrote one of these. While we have been staying with my parents they have taken control of most of the meals, which has been a welcome break for me! My mum doesn’t meal plan in quite the same way that I do, but she generally has a good idea

Well I’ll be honest – we didn’t stick to the meal plan for last week, never mind knowing how much we spent on the food. It was an major fail, but with the work we have been doing in the house I think we can be forgiven! With Piglet’s birthday this coming Sunday we are
