I realise I've been a bit neglectful of this space recently. For those of you who still check in here thank you!
I'm going to blame it on these three above. Shameless I know.
We've been busy on trips to London, the Zoo and just generally hanging out on 'Club Penguin'. Totally obsessed, all three of them.
Next week is a big step for the two boys, both start new schools and I am feeling so nervous for them. Yoyo takes things like this in her stride, but for my boys this is an enormous deal. I am trying to distract myself by labelling uniform and sourcing the perfect packed lunch box.
Will be back to regular posting soon, promise!

I think The Queen of Clean dreads me going to a local dump as I am known to bring back these little projects for him to transform.
How could I resist those barley twist table legs though? And just imagine the books stacking opportunities on the little shelf below.
And all for the princely sum of £0
It shall (eventually) be painted cream and take pride of place next to my fireplace. Perhaps by Christmas.

1. The excitement brewing here today around making these cakes.
2. Littlest one's new strategy to beat the ever closing pages of the colouring book. Do you remember that?.......so frustrating. He just steps right on the spine.
3. Yoyo feeds her teddy ice cream on a trip out. I remember this is the sort of thing I would have done and I am taken back to being 6 again.

Meal planning - well I've just never 'got it'. Until I found the free printable pdf above available here.
Of course, this is my first week so still in the honeymoon period. And loving the clipboard my husband has made me (even spray painted the bulldog clip white). Do note this is my real life menu plan so no pretending on there - that is the full horror of our diet this week, pizza, burgers, spag bol et al. Should probably have done a blog version to impress, but I just wanted to show off the clipboard.
Can you tell we're on annual leave and have too much time on our hands?!??
Just off to polish the cat..........
