We are now in the penultimate month of this year – this decade, in fact! It’s quite scary how quickly this year has gone, and it’s only going to go faster!
Last week was half term and I didn’t get the chance to do a meal plan. We had quite a quiet week – it was Alex’s birthday on Tuesday, and he had three friends around on Saturday night for pizza and a sleepover but that was the extent of our half term plans. Our days and weekends are always so busy that it is sometimes nice to have a bit of downtime.
This week is also a relatively quiet one. I’m having lunch at Harrison’s school today – each class invited the parents in once a year to have a cooked meal. I’ve never had the chance to go before because it clashed with the nursery runs, but this year I don’t have that excuse. I went to Ben’s a few weeks ago and it was lovely, so I’m looking forward to it. School lunches have definitely improved since I was at school!
