Meal Plan Friday 27th February 2016

The Chicken Pox came to visit us this last week, it has been really rather hectic and yet dull at the same time. I needed a quick meal plan in between applying cream to spots (a life saver from a totally awesome mum at school), making drinks and trying to stop the toddler opening every cupboard in the kitchen.

Friday - I love the Busy Mums Cookbook and she have a wonderful Cheesy Tomato Puff Jacket. Even easier with ready made jackets.

Saturday- Lasagna with garlic bread and salad. The boys will have homemade pizza.

Sunday - Roast Chicken from our local farm shop. Can you beat roast chicken?

Monday - Madhouse cookbook by Jo Pratt - Carbonara

Tuesday- Cottage Pie

Wednesday- Corned Beef Hash for Mr MC&W and myself. The boys will be having mini roast potatoes with a tomato sauce and veggies.

Thursday- Oven Baked Fish, Rice and Roasted Veggies with a homemade tomato sauce.

Pruning a Standard Rose by a total gardening novice

The weather has suddenly started to feel like winter. Today was cold but at least it was sunny, much easier to wrap up warm and get outside. My problem is my toes, they do hate the cold and despite two pairs of socks I still only managed around half an hour.

Today was the day I pruned (it felt more like attacked) the standard rose, we brought this about two years ago. Mr MC&W fell for bits big pink flowers and it came home with us. Then it was a lovely compact rose full of beautiful flowers.

Last year I did not prune it and to be honest it looked a mess, the branches had grown long and were trailing. When it was windy the whole plant nearly fell over.





This year I was determined to do something about it, I did a few google searches and I watched an excellent video from the Garden Ninja on YouTube. He made it all sound very simple so off I went with my secateurs and enthusiasm.

All I had in my mind was cut to outward facing buds and remove dead wood. So I looked carefully and chopped do…

Childrens Swing set to Border Edging

The children's slide and swing set was beginning to make some rather dodgy creaking noises, as they spend most of their time on the trampoline we decided to take it down.




Our first thoughts were, we would chop it down to manageable sizes and take it to the tip, then Mr MC&W had a rather good idea. The wood was not too bad, could we use it to make better edges to the garden borders? As you can see on the photo below, we had a sleeper that marked the border with the patio, we never really liked it as it was too big and there was nothing else between the border and the grass.




We managed to remove the sleeper and save some of the pegs then used 4 posts to edge the whole new border, Mr MC&W cut them to angles so they join well. We are really happy with the end result. We even had enough wood to make a border by the shed that needs a lot of work but at least it has a nice edge.








We also have this small patch under the clematis but it is really shallow so using a couple of the steps …
