Well, we have another birthday here this week. Belle will be 6 on Friday. The party is on Saturday, so I’ll be busy baking and getting on top of the housework. I’m having the carpets cleaned that morning, the plumber is calling on Wednesday to take a look at the shower to see where the problem is and the plasterer will be here on Friday. I’ve ordered a new extractor for the oven which my brother-in-law will fit. So things are moving. The children also break up for the Summer holidays (Ugh! Help!) So busy busy week for me.
Off to do some ironing. See you tomorrow for a tough Tackle it Tuesday…
My blog that is! And by sheer coincidence, my hay fever has kicked in, too! That’s what reminded me about my first post. I was looking back at some of my early posts and thought a few of them were boring or corny. Hope that’s improved!
Anyway, here is my Menu Plan for this week. I was thinking of putting an American influence on this weeks grub, but will save that one for another time. I kept it simple instead for an easy time in the kitchen till we all get back to normal!
Tuesday~ Scrambled eggs, beans and potato waffles

While I was in America, I noticed several cars with stickers of children on the rear window, obviously notifying other drivers that there are children on board. I thought how cute they looked and wonder if any of you American viewers could tell me where I could buy one for my own car. Please leave a comment if you can help. Thanks.
Fathers Day here in Ireland and another coincidence….DADDY WASN’T WORKING!!! We all slept in late, still jet-lagged I think, then let Hubs lay on a little longer. I made him two toasted fried egg sandwiches (sloppy) with strong treacle-like coffee, then he retreated to the garden with Spud…
I’m concentrating more on the childrens meals this week. I’m on my diet and Hubs is happy with curries, Enchiladas, Chilli-con-carne etc. (lucky him) I’ve been thinking they haven’t been eating a great deal of fruit of late, so I’ll be giving them some after each meal as well as in their packed lunches. Also replacing fruit squash with water…
Homemade rice pudding (my first attempt)
Chinese omelette rolls
Savoury Pancakes, sweetcorn and potato waffles
The Chip Shop!
Skip the fruit!
