Meal Plan Friday 10th February 2017

This week has not been the most fun. All three children have had chicken pox and ZAP had it very badly. Then we had the worry of OB having a sick bug, with his type 1 normally means a stay in hospital. The meal plan has been a bit of a struggle.

Friday - Pizza and they are brought in this week not homemade.

Saturday - Gammon, Eggs and Chips

Sunday - Roast Beef with all the trimmings 

Monday - Boys will have mini tuna fishcakes. Mr MC&W and I will have fish with Mediterranean rice and spinach

Tuesday - Valentine's Day - no going out but a Charlie Bingham ready meal for us and jacket potato for the boys.

Wednesday- Chicken Burgers (cheating by using spicy chicken from Birds Eye) on ciabatta with salad 

Thursday - Spaghetti in a homemade tomato sauce with ham and peas. Have to thank my lovely sister for helping me with that idea.

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…

The meal plan for the last couple of weeks has been a bit of a chore. For some reason I am finding it hard to decide what to eat and nothing is appealing.

Sunday - Roast Chicken, the boys just love this meal and normally clear their whole plates.
Monday - Sausage Casserole with Jacket  Potatoes
Tuesday - Chicken Curry
Wednesday - Tuna Pasta Bake
Thursday - Fish Pie
Friday - Homemade pizza
