Meal Plan Monday 20th July 2015

I am having to get a tad more organised  as it's the summer holidays and I am going back to online shopping, taking those two boys to do a weekly shop would not be fun in the slightest.

Monday - Cabbage, potato and chorizo  bake from the lovely Rachel Allen's Easy meals - I always pre  cook my potatoes so they go fluffy when roasting and cook this in the oven for time and allowing me to finish other jobs. The boys will have mini roast potatoes with a tomato sauce.

Tuesday -    From my slow cooker cookbook a Caribbean style chicken dish

Wednesday - I am going to do a quorn  Chinese meal I will be honest the sauce will brought in for this one as we need quick simple meals some days. However if healthier I may try this one as it does not take too long. The boys love noodles so I will do this for them as well.l

Feeding a Bee with sugar water

Have you ever been in the garden and seen a sad looking bee on the ground not really moving? You watch it for a while realising the poor little chap is really struggling. I have found several bees like this and tried to feed them sugar water. But my attempts to rescue them mainly ended with me trying to drown them, I was really not aiding them during their time of need. But I have finally developed a method that works so I thought I would share.

Mix together white sugar with a little water so that it completely dissolves, RSPB suggests 2 tablespoons of sugar with one tablespoon of water. I used desert spoons but the same ratio. The advice is never to use honey or brown sugar. 

This is what worked for me, move the bee to a paving stone, I used a strong leaf they tend to walk onto it, if not you can easily slide it under them, then drip a small amount of the sugar water in front of the bee. The bee will start to drink the sugar water and you will see it begin to get stronger. It is truly …

Planting LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei

I can not believe the day had finally arrived, the trees we had put so much thought into were going to be planted.

We had the conifer and last shrubs removed and the whole area dug over and ready for the arrival of the LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei.

Finding Elaeagnus Ebbingei

I was on the school run when they arrived. I walked round into the back garden to see five of the most beautiful trees in huge pots ready to be planted.

Mr MC&W had chatted to the team that the trees need to be the same height despite there being a slight slope.

It was great to see the tape measure out checking the spacing between each one, as this was such a crucial part of the design.

I can not believe how fast they got the first tree in and how polite they were when we suddenly realised it was overhanging the neighbours' boundary. They brought it forward no questions.


All five went in under 4 hours, I honestly do not think we would have one hole dug in that time.
Then they were planted and we could…
