On The Breakfast Plate This Morning…

A cup of instant coffee and a slice of toast.

Right Now I Am…

Supervising my son as he finishes off an assessment for History.

On My Bedside Table…

My mobile. Toddler fingerprints.

On My Reading Pile…

So many wonderful books. I am afraid that reading has taken a backseat recently, to Christmas craft projects and mummying.

Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend…

My son and I watched Season 3 of “The Toys That Made Us”, which he really enjoys.

My son and I also watched “Brittany Runs A Marathon” together, which we both enjoyed as we really like true stories.

On My TV This Week…

“The Knight Before Christmas” on Thursday when it is released on Netflix.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday: KFC to celebrate my sons (14) first day of work! Gosh I am so proud of him!! It was his first job interview and he was successful in securing the position of trainee library assistant. His first day of work was today and he came home so happy and excited, he absolutely loved it!

Tuesday: My son has band practise tonight, so something easy, spaghetti bolognaise.

Wednesday: My son has work tonight so we will have something easy, grilled sausages and steamed vegetables.

Thursday: Grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

Friday: My son has band practice, work, and youth group tonight, so again something easy, Rice a Riso.

Saturday: Shepherd’s pie with steamed vegetables.

Sunday: If Its (if it is there you can eat it).

On My To Do List…

Write up some blog posts.

Go shopping.

Post my mail.

Make or find a fitness tracker/log to use.

In The Craft Basket…

A lot of props to finish making for this years Elf on the Shelf.

Birthday invitations for me for next year (I need to send them out with enough time to allow people to travel).

All other craft projects are on a short hiatus while I get Christmas ready.

Looking Forward To…

Getting my parcels. I am expecting a package from Big W, with Christmas items in there, including a trike for Timmy’s birthday in early December. I am also expecting a Christmas themed mystery craft box, which will be fun.

Looking Around My House…

I need to dust my study and bedroom, as well as the boys bedrooms.

I want to put up my Christmas trees.

I want to start hanging up my Christmas decorations.

I need to fix the fan light in the kitchen.

From My Camera…

carrots (1)

My little one helping to pick a couple of carrots for dinner. He really likes to help in the garden, and I encourage that, I think it is important for him to know where food really comes from.

New Recipe To Try…


My Simple Pleasure…

Spending time with my kids.

    So happy your son loves his first job 🙂 That bread looks yummy. Probably with grated instead of shredded cheese? We usually use the shredded, but that wouldn’t make much of a paste 😉 Thanks!

    I’ve been watching The Toys That Made Us and loving it! I hope they keep adding seasons to it, so interesting. And that sizzler bread looks amazing…seems like a perfect side to spaghetti. Hope you are in the middle of a great week!
