I had one of those moments on the weekend that challenged me as a mother. My 11 year old son was invited over to a good friend’s house for his birthday. He wasn’t having a ‘party’ as such, he just wanted to ‘hang out’ with his mates. Fair enough. We shuffled around a few things so that my boy could go along.

Today, I have some great recipes for you! These are perfect for last minute lunchbox additions or birthday party favourites. Continue reading
I love me a free printable! So, today I am sharing my own menu plan.
Cool things about my menu plan:
- It’s pretty and colourful (very important!)
- It has space to list breakfast, lunch and dinner on each day if you wish.
- There is space to write a shopping list for the meal
- Space to add appointments to that day, so you know if you have time limitations put on your cooking time
- It’s FREE!
Download it and print it out each week, or download it once and laminate it. Whatever works for you 🙂
Get it HERE: ***** Menu Plan *****
It has been a busy week here, with kids starting a new year at school. It hasn’t taken long to get back into the old routine of menu planning and lunch box prepping.
I feel like this year will be different though. I am allowing myself a little bit of time just for me. The family schedule is filling up fast, but I am making sure that in there, there is some time for me to get back a little bit of sanity, to exercise a little bit and just take some deep breaths.
I have set myself a challenge, to exercise every day in February for 30 minutes. It may be a walk, or weights or pilates
or a run . So far, so good. Ok, so it’s only day 1, but whatever, as far as I’m concerned, I’m 100% on target! I’ll keep you posted how I am going!
