Meal Planning

After having a wonderful holiday in Queensland with my family I have found it hard to find the time to write on our blog.

It seemed that in the few days of coming back, life through us right back into it. My little one had minor surgery and appointments following this and then somehow we have kinder and afternoon sleeps  in between (not for me). When did we get so busy? Being at home with the kids is definitely not all about socialising and going out for coffees. But I wouldn't have it any other way. 

One thing I knew I needed to get on top of was my meal planning. I usually  flick through recipe books and pick out some new recipes to try and always plan for some of the usual quick meals that are great for swimming lesson nights. I have found planning on a meal planner pad with a magnetic back is quite easy and visual

 When we were away I did not cook one meal. Lucky me, but now I have it difficult to get back into it after being so spoilt.  I find myself looking into the freezer for inspiration or end up at the supermarket buying everything  I really didn't need. 

I came across this super blog created by organised mums called 'The Creative Mama' . These fabulous mums share their great ideas on how they organise their households from meal planning to creating a guest basket. I love this  Meal Planning board, great idea, this one will certainly be on my to do list.

Sprucing Up

The boys are in desperate need of new decorating in their bedrooms. I am trying to find a nice bedspread for Tylers room with stars and stripes in blues, whites and reds and this is proving harder than I thought. Even though he won't give up his current bed spread which is quite daggy and doesn't fit the doona properly. Tyler has a queen size bed, yes I know only aged 5 with a queen bed. We had to give up the guest bedroom but kept the bed and Tyler was very happy to score this one. The down side to this is when people stay Tyler has to give up his bed. So finding a children queen size doona isn't the easiest. I was wondering that if I got myself into order I may have to sew up one with patchwork pieces. As much as I love sewing I don't quite have to room to execute this. If it were for a girls room, there would be no dilemma.

I found a picture of these stunning floor pillows that would look gorgeous as opposed to a beanbag. Then it's the lampshade, bunting, floor rug. Where does it end? Needing ideas, I guess it's another excuse for me to buy a heap of house magazines (any excuse really).  What sorts of boys bedroom themes other than cars, dinosaurs and animals are there?

Lego Party

I have finally gotten around to sharing Tyler's 5th Birthday Party with you. His theme was 'Lego' which was well chosen. We decorated our newly rented house as best as we could, with lego colours, we even found a tent in the shed to fill up with lego for the children to build their towers. A great way to keep Lego contained and children thought it was a little hide out. 

I planned at least 10 party games for the children, typical teacher planned way too many activities. The children really just enjoyed playing in the sandpit, building with lego, riding bikes, drawing chalk on the concrete and  totem tennis. I couldn't believe it. Yes the children entertained themselves!!They didn't need jumping castles, farm animals, face painters and all of the other entertainment activities that we seem to think they many need. We didn't get through all of our activities because they were busy having fun. 

We did include the typical typical party games with Pin the smile on the 'Lego Man', that was a hit, pass the parcel and this was wrapped with a little lolly watch in every wrap so everyone got a prize (didn't want to upset anyone). I found that wrapping each layer in a different paper certainly helped distinguish layers when unwrapping. 

We brought out our bubble machine and the children loved to dance to this and a scavenger hunt at the end, with children finding a small parcel, bringing it back to me and I gave them their take home party bag. The party bag was a red noodle box with a lego sticker on the front and filled with bubbles, balloons and lollies. I forgot to take a photo of these, the day went so fast, that is the one thing I regret not taking enough photos.

 I was asked if I could make the Lego cake again, even though I tried to talk Tyler into different coloured cupcakes with a Lego topper but his mind was made up and now I think he definitely made the right choice. The lego cake was made up of 4 layers, each a different colour and marshmallow for the lego bumps on top. I put this cake on a lego board to stick with the theme. We had layered coloured jelly, fruit platters, cake pops, rocky road, golf balls and coloured lollies (lego colours). Our food was simple but popular with the children. As it was a late afternoon tea party we didn't have any hot food and it was such a hot day, the rocky road was lucky to have survived the afternoon. 

The children had a ball which is the most important thing, it makes the bags under the eyes and messy kitchen worth it.

I have been reading this poster everyday this week. It hangs 4 metres tall on the wall of my gym. Yes, I am back into it, finally. I know there are so many bus scrolls out there now but I think this one is different from the rest. This one really makes you want to take life by the horns. Well it works while I am in the gym thats for sure. I find myself coming back! 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Summer Read

We are off to the beach pretty soon so I thought I had better get some 'summer books' if I get time to read them. I am a huge fan of Jane Green. Her books are easy to read, no thinking involved which is perfect when all I want to do is chill out. 

I grabbed 'The Beach House' and of course couldn't help myself, I started to read the first page just to make sure this is the perfect book to take away. Then the first page became the second then the third and before I knew it I was 100 pages in and hooked.

After 4 nights this book has been read and thoroughly enjoyed. So 'The Beach House' didn't quite make it to the beach.  I was disappointed the book came to end so now I am on the hunt for a new book. Might have to pack the next one away, out of sight.
