Well, it's Monday evening again!
I have supported our (fulltime) post office, pub (for lunch), mobile library and church coffee shop today, but although this is good for the local community, it means I haven't been home for most of the day!
Last week did almost go to plan, apart from Thursday. I had offered to help at Messy Church, which runs from 3pm to 5.30pm, and my husband discovered that it was one of his days at the heritage railway, but he also had a meeting at 7pm. No problem, I thought - I can make a meatloaf, put it into the fridge and the boy can take it out and put it into the oven when he gets in from school to ensure a quick turnaround. Then it turns out he needs to stay at school until 5pm to complete his practical project for Resistance Materials (Design & Technology - what use to be called woodwork and metalwork) - and then needed to collected. At that point, we decided that frozen burgers were a better option. He phoned at 1pm, to say that there were no teachers to supervise and he would get the school bus home! Arrgggh!
This week seems to be getting busier as I watch, and the slow cooker meals are going to be needed at the weekend.
Monday - Tuna
Tuesday - Citrus pork chops
Wednesday - Coconut turkey stew
Thursday - Shepherd's pie
Friday - Curried coconut pollack
