Well, That was the week that was!


Monday

Saw Master Ll and Master E going off on a 5 day PGL trip to Boreatton Park !



Tuesday

Dh went back to work after a week off and in the evening we took Master A to the cinema to watch How to train your Dragon! and all I can say is I WANT A DRAGON! yes, I know I am Welsh and it is within me to like Dragons! I throughly recommend it as a film!

Wednesday

Normal day of pottering around the house catching up on the washing making the most of two boys not being here! Also trying to get a bit of reading in! Then Master A had a friend to tea and they had homemade pizza which they put the toppings on!

Thursday

Discovering that there is a wonderful Charity in Gloucester called Little Bundles a pefect place to de-clutter all the baby thigns I no longer need/want and pass them into the hands of people who really need them! Also de-cluttering the loft and taking things to the tip/recycling centre and loading the car for Teifi Day ( a fundraising day for an old teacher of mine who died of Motor Neruone Diease)

Friday

That brings us to today Little fishes at church this am home lunch start new cross stich project for a leaving present! Then two boys back from PGL with very dirty clothes, virtually no voices and having had a great time!

And we still have two days to go till Monday again and I am already exhausted!

Desk De-cluttering

Well the desk was clear!

I worked really hard at clearing my desk so that I start work on my course when it arrived and indeed later that day it did arrive!

Now I have tidyied up downtairs and all the stuff which was down stairs is now on my desk ARGH!!!!!!!!

On the reusable Nappy front! We are doing quite well I have cracked during the day still working on night time Master A sleeps for about 12 hours some nights so I think I just need to put some more booster pads in the nappies!

When the Children are back at school I will have a go at doing some mini reviews so let you all know which ones I personally think are the best!

5 Things must go!

Right the sun is shinning and I need to start the de-cluttering process around my desk again so that I can have room to work when my Course material comes so I can start working!

1) Reusable Nappies which I orginally got from freecycle which weren't much good are going to be passed on ( already posted on freegle)

2) Have decided to sell some of my Cross stich books as I no longer use them very much

3), 4), 5) I am still to find these but with the amout of junk on my desk this will not be hard!

Photos of scrummy's

Well as promised before they were all eaten I managed to take some photos of the goodies I made for Easter.


The first Pic is of the yummy gorgeous choc Orange Cake which is suitable for people who are Coeliac and dairy intolerant! I will post the recipe if anybody wants it!





These are the rice krispy cakes that Master A helped me make.





I had bought some rather cheap rice krispy type cereal that the children decided tasted like cardboard so add chocolate, some Golden Syrup and mini eggs to finish and rather than have food end up in the food waste container! We had Easter Egg cakes to be given as small after lunch presents
