A tale of a Christmas Tree Rescue

Once upon a time a few days before Christmas....


A stressed mother was dragging three children to the garden centre to buying kindling so they would stay warm over the cold winter week. When she happened to see a poor Christmas tree all alone when all others had been sold. The kind mother walked over to the tree and up bounded the salesman its yours for 10.00

The mother could not leave the tree there all alone so had to buy it, in her carriage it went. On getting home she noticed it had soaked her carriage boot where it had been sitting. She quickly removed the cable tie and red plastic packaging. The Little Christmas tree was drowning in thick, waterlogged mud, no wonder her boot was soaked.






The mother ran to her shed full of bikes and scooters, after rummaging around for what felt like a year, she found a largish pot and found some compost, it was all the poor mother could find so had to do. 

The sad little Christmas tree was re potted. 




We are not sure the little Christmas tree will sur…

Wednesday - Left overs I have got in baking potatoes…

Meal Plan 7th December 2018

What a week, we had all three children doing a play last week and each one was on a different day. I am shattered but they were all amazing (proud Mummy alert).

The weather has been plain miserable so it is a week of pure comfort food this week. 

Friday - Smoked Mackerel Salad for Mr MC&W and I. The boys will have MacDonald's as they all did so well this week and deserved a treat. I will write this one up on the blog as it has evolved from a few ideas into one big salad.

Saturday - Burger night for us. The boys will have quorn burgers the chicken style one with a choice of lettuce and tomatoes to go with it. We will have southern fried chicken (thanks Birds Eye) with avocado and a yogurt dressing served with salad and wedges

Sunday - Sausage Casserole with jackets

Monday - Tuna Pasta bake - we add peppers, mushrooms and onions. The boys have sweetcorn and peas.
