Good afternoon, I hope you are having a nice Sunday.
Mine is a mixed afternoon, sweet man feels very sorry for himself and has taken himself off for an afternoon sleep (yeah I know chance would be a fine thing wouldn't it!). He has cut the top of his finger on his mandolin whilst cutting some lettuce, has banged his stomach on the door handle and has a bite on his leg that is a bit infected.
I'm not really the sympathetic type, probably, because as most of us do I have to get on with it if I'm feeling rough, which might I just say my joints are starting to feel much better. Yay!
Anyway, back to my afternoon I have been trying to organise ready for school tomorrow. I don't think we are going to be hit with so much snow that it will be called off ha ha.
All the school uniforms are washed and on the radiators drying. I have lunches to pack but I have done the lunch shopping today. As we will be eating out of the freezer for dinners this week I have not done a big shop.
I still have all the kids shoes to clean and baths and hair washes to organise. What age did you allow your children to wash their own hair?
Yesterday I told you that I had put week 1's shopping list into My Supermarket and the list had come up at £103.23 but I have now looked at the items that are cheaper in each supermarket and I have managed to get the list down to £89.13 without any coupons of offers so hopefully I may be able to bring this even lower.
My weekly budget is £100 for food but ideally I would like it to be £80.00 per week.
I have been looking back at my January aims and I don't seem to be achieving very much apart from organising the food shopping but a few small things at a time hopefully will result in better organisation all round.
I haven't started to sort out my youngest two's bedroom yet so I have decided to change my plan and organise the kitchen first. It seems to make sense as I am trying to get to grips with our shopping.
Please excuse the mess in my kitchen we have just had dinner and I have done the washing up and got some lunch stuff out for tomorrow.
But this gives you an idea of the room that I want to sort out. There are a couple of things that I need to buy for this room.
1. A new calendar (I'm waiting for them to be reduced)
2. A bin - I have not had one since my eight year old was two and we had a touch bin. He used to try and play with it and one day cut his finger on a baked bean can. So goodbye bin and hello plastic bags that get used after dinner and taken out to the big outside bin. But now my youngest is seven I think I can have a bin again. (I will look in the charity shop for one)
I plan to do a bit of the kitchen every day except Monday and Wednesday as these are long days at work. I normally get home just after five and start preparing dinner straight away. No time for cleaning and organising.
Well I am off now to wash my eight year olds hair.
Take care xx
