Meal Plan Friday 22nd September 2017

I am not sure where this week has gone. It has been dominated by Type 1, we are having to change all the insulin levels as our eldest has been having hypos every night. Thank goodness we have a dexcom that alerts us to these. We are shattered from the broken sleep and constant worry. 

The meals other than Sunday are pretty budget friendly as we are a watching the pennies and as you can see we are having a lot of veggie meals which we love.

Friday - Sausages with caramelised onions served in brioche buns with coleslaw. The boys have school meals on Friday so will have picnic dinner.

Saturday - Chicken Kiev (shop brought) roasted new potatoes and a huge green salad. The boys will have pizza (not homemade)

Sunday - Slow cooked topside of beef with roast potatoes, Carrots, greens, yorkshires and lots of gravy

Monday - Bhaji Frittata

Tuesday - Lentil Ragu with garlic bread

Wednesday - Jackets with Tuna or beans and cheese

Thursday - Beef Cannelloni

Viburnum Tinus for a border

As you are aware last year I posted about the garden fence being replaced and the fact we lost some privacy. We found part of the solution with the amazing LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei. Planting lollipop trees elaeagnus   However, we still have a fence that is a little bit see through. So we are now on the next stage of planting up the new border. We decided to visit Architectural Plants again, knowing what we needed was established plants. Our main problem was that we had no idea what plants would work. We did not want to loose the stunning appearance of the lollipop trees, they look so regal and I was concerned they would get lost in a massive shrub. The regal trees and the fence up close We asked for help as soon as we arrived, being organised we had to hand measurements and photos of the border and fence. She looked at them, listened to us and straight away came up with the most beautiful idea. Viburnum Tinus but in two different forms, one as a small lollipop

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 Area cleared and ready for the trees 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. Elaeagnus ebbingei all ready to be planted 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.
