Alphabet Project - W

Wow, I cannot believe that we are nearly at the end of this fantastic project. I have really enjoyed the challenges each week finding a photograph that fits the corresponding letter.

This week is the letter W. This week I have chosen...

Wellies
I honestly never thought I'd love a pair of wellies like I do my lilac Hunter boots. As we live in the countryside, during the wet weather, they are always on my feet. As you can see I wear them with anything. When I go to tend to the chickens, at this time of year, they are essential as it gets so muddy. I have got to admit they do add a touch of glamour to the most mucky, muddy jobs!

That is why my W is for Wellies!

As always I am sharing with the lovely Podcast - Alphabet Project.

Weekly Meal Plan - Week Commencing 20th October 2014

That time of the week is back again! It is time for my weekly meal plan.

This week is a short week as we go away on Friday. Therefore I am only planning for four meals. Next week I will be sharing some of my favourite recipes which should, hopefully, inspire you for some lovely home cooked meals.

Last weeks meal plan didn't go to plan as I did receive a lovely Gousto box, which I will be writing about this week. I cooked two of the three meals last week and will be cooking the third this week.

This is what I will be serving this week...

Week Commencing 20th October 2014

Stir Fry with Ginger and Lemongrass Chicken Skewers

When we popped into Tesco on Sunday afternoon I found that they had got some lovely stir fry reduced down to 17p! This was an offer to good to miss so we will be having that for dinner on Monday with chicken skewers marinaded in ginger and lemongrass.

Tuna Pasta Bake

This is a meal that Joseph has been asking for for weeks and I haven't got round to it so this week I will.

Chorizo Couscous

This is the final Gousto meal that we have to try. This is one that I am particularly looking forward to. I love chorizo and Spanish flavours and cannot wait to cook this meal.

Pork with Mango Chutney

I have got some pork steaks which I will be grilling with a topping of mango chutney, onions and grated cheese.

As I said before I will be here next week but instead of sharing my weekly meal plan I will be sharing some of my favourite recipes.

Have a lovely week x

13th October - 19th October 2014 - One Picture Everyday For One Week

This has been another busy week. I cannot believe that Joseph breaks up from school next Thursday and we are on holiday on Friday. This first half term of school has flown by!

Here is our week in pictures...


Monday 13th October 2014


Monday really was an exciting day! I spent the day at Unilever in Leatherhead with some lovely foodie bloggers and Marco Pierre White! I didn't get home until 9 o'clock and was exhausted but it was a fantastic day and certainly worth it!

Tuesday 14th October 2014


After my exciting start to the week it was back to reality on Tuesday. After all of the rain it was a boggy mess in the chicken run!

Wednesday 15th October 2014


Wednesday the twins had so much fun trying out a new toy to review. The Thomas and Friends Motion Control Thomas has been a huge success in our house. You can read my review here.

Thursday 16th October 2014



Thursday was all about baking. The twins loved making and eating the banana cupcakes!

Friday 17th October 2014


On Friday I decided to have a move around in the lounge and created a little reading corner for the twins. I have doubled up their old bumpers and tied the straps together to create little seats for them. They love their new little area and I hope they get a lot of enjoyment from it.

Saturday 18th October 2014


I love this picture of Isabella discovering autumn. The twins managed to get outside in the garden on Saturday afternoon and they spent the majority of the time examining the fallen leaves.

Sunday 19th October 2014


My Silent Sunday is a picture from Kings Cross station London.

As always I am sharing our week in pictures with:
