Meal Plan Friday 5th October 2018

We mainly stuck to the meal plan but we did treat ourselves to a curry midweek as the beef curry was quorn and mainly in tins or veggies could be used in other meals we did not waste any food.

We have birthdays and play dates this week so it all seems a little crazy...

Friday - We have a play date for the eldest so its spag bol for all the boys and Mr MC&W and I are having scampi, Chips and Peas

Saturday - Its a birthday treat lunch and then nachos for Mr MC&W and I whilst watching strictly. The boys will have picnic dinner.

Sunday - Honey and Mustard Chicken for Mr MC&W and I, the boys have requested sausages, beans and mash

Slow cooker honey mustard chicken thighs

Monday - Leek, mushroom and goats cheese tart for the adults and a tuna tart for the boys. It will be based on the below but with puff pastry

A honest look at our garden August 2018

I love my garden but sometimes I look and sigh, today is one of those days.

We have had a tough time gardening, late frosts followed by constant rain then came the long hot and dry summer, all this combined with three kids including a toddler has led to what follows.

This is the view from the climbers on the far fence at the moment.

We have leaves fallen from the lollipop trees due to the heat and lack of rain, the climbers are very slow in growing and we have quite a few dead branches, however the bindweed is growing very well among the climbers and loving the location.

This is the border just in front of the lollipop trees, we planted what I mistakenly though was winter flowing bedding, in fact, they have been flowering since late spring but are now starting to go over, adding to the beauty of half dead flowers is the grass doing very well at the bottom of the sleeper.

The next area of mess is the new border we created when a new fence was put up. We brought some plants, despite watering…

Planting Hanging Baskets Summer 2018

It felt a little like supermarket sweep, I was on count down to get back for him to play golf. But I am thrilled with the choices and the colours we have this year. 

I went shopping earlier than last year and choice of plants was so much better and lots of new and interesting colours to choose from.

Petunia, I have to have a big basket of Petunias and this year they were selling black ones, I have always wanted to do a basket that had these balck petunia, I mixed them with Blue vein to create the most dramatic basket I have ever done. I adore this one as it is so bold and so hope it works out well.

I am a little obsessed with Nemesia they are just stunning flowers and they have this beautiful variety called Rhubarb and Custard I decided to get two and then surrounded with Calibrachoa Cabaret in Light pink and Lemon to make a s…
