Our Weekly Meal Plan!! - #mealplanningmonday


Woop! Woop! Last weeks meal plan actually all went to plan!! Well the chicken nuggets actually turned out the be chicken dippers but I will count last week as a win!! It was an easy week as the kids had planned it and were quick to remind me what we were having....

This week we are back into the school routine....Ellie goes back Wednesday and Becky goes back Thursday.....The are very excited for the start of school....I am not looking forward to it.....I am dreading the early mornings!! Eek! 

This week on the Menu we have:

Monday - Bubble & Squeak....
Tuesday - McDonalds....A last treat before school begins again....
Wednesday - Turkey Meatballs with Spaghetti....
Friday - Pizza....
Saturday - Burgers in buns with curly fries....
Sunday - Toad in the Hole....

As always I've joined in with the wonderful Mrs M's #mealplanningmonday linky.... 
 

Ellie's best birthday yet.....

On Saturday it was Ellie's birthday.....She had an amazing day! Ellie had all of her day planned and it went exactly how she wanted it too.....Hooray!

She got up and opened her presents....Then had her breakfast....Croissants and milkshake!

 
Then we headed off to soft play! My idea of hell....There was no Wi-Fi, far too many screaming kids and my girls jumping and diving off things making me a nervous wreck but they had a fantastic time, especially Ellie! Lunch was a meal of hot dogs and chips which cost a small fortune but it was a special treat and my girls are worth it....

Then we went home to Ellie's special surprise! The Doc McStuffins Get Better Talking Doc - Mobile Clinic She didn't have a clue and as soon as she ripped the wrapping paper the squealing an screeching began! She was so happy and so excited.....Of course she loves it and the best mam of the year award goes to me! Hooray!!


 Ellie requested a Chinese takeaway for tea and that is what she got.....We got enough to feed a small army and stuffed ourselves....Then there was cake! I bought some relightable candles which were a little too good....I ended up having to run them under the cold tap to put them out....lol


Ellie finished her perfect birthday in her new Frozen ready bed watching X-Factor.....That is where she fell asleep! Extremely happy and another year older.....

Project 365 - Week 35

240/365. 28th August 2015

I finished wrapping Ellie's birthday presents yesterday....It is her birthday today.....My baby is eight! 


My baby is eight!

Today is my baby girl's 8th Birthday! How an earth did that happen....It's a cliche but it doesn't seem that long since she was born.....

This post is quite photo heavy but it's my girls birthday and I don't care I wanted to share her through the years of her life...


 Ellie was a lovely baby and toddler.....I know all babies are lovely but she was a pleasure to parent.....She did have her troubles. If I had a pound for every hospital appointment we had with her I would be rich.....If it wasn't her ears it was her heart or her dodgy eye.....She has her imperfections but to me she is perfect! She wouldn't be the Ellie I know and love without her problems....


Just after her third birthday Ellie started nursery.....She wasn't ready & struggled with the toilet and being tired....She was often found asleep in the reading area but I thought it might be good for her and I was right.....Yeah she may have been a year younger than some children in her class....She still is now but she never let it put her off anything....She does her best to keep up and tries her hardest that's all I can ask of her! 


I can't express how funny Ellie is....She is so cheeky and has an answer for everything....She has everyone wrapped around her little fingers especially her dad.....She can be naughty....So very naughty but there are times when I try to tell her off and can't for laughing because the things she has done are so ridiculous! i.e Using all of my make up!


She has had her day planned for months....We are going to throw in an extra surprise for her....hehehe I can't wait to see her face!

Happy 8th Birthday to my beautiful, crazy, kind, funny girl!
