Happy Homemaker Monday – 18/7/16
Hello! How was your weekend?
I’ve decided to take part in the happy homemaker Monday link up again. I used to join in regularly but that was almost 2 years ago now! Vince has just finished two weeks off work, my house is a shambles, my housework routine and organisation is lacking, and my blogging is sporadic. So I thought this might just be a great way to kickstart a few things!
Our weekend was a mixed bag, highlights including an excellent birthday tea party for a friends 30th (if you have instagram check out #greatbeckiebakeoff), lowlights being my poor teething, snotty, unhappy baby and his over tired big sister struggling to keep it together.
Well, onwards with HHM!
Today is beautiful! It feels like summer has finally arrived! The sunshine always motivates me to get on with chores too.😊
On my reading pile:::
My reading pile is woefully non-existent right now. I am terrible at finding the time for reading these days even though I do love to read. I’m hoping to make a better point of reading in the summer holidays.
On my tv:::
Gilmore Girls boxset. Thankyou Netflix! It’s been years since I watched this show and I do love it, I’ve even got the Mr hooked! 🙂
On the menu this week:::
We are currently on day 17 of our first Whole 30! It’s been an interesting and sometimes torturous experience so far!
This weeks dinners:
Monday – Prawn Cocktail and salad
Tuesday – Baked Potato, Tuna Salad
Wednesday – Pulled Pork Carnitas
Thursday – Leftovers!
Friday – Chicken Cacciatore

On my to do list:::
Weekly food shop

Organise kids clothes
Never-ending mountain of laundry!!!
What I am sewing, crocheting, or creating:::
I am currently crocheting a smaller version of my Springtime Bolero for a little person and I am crocheting a cardigan for myself but I’m making it up as I go and it is going slowly! I also have a little teacher present in the works.
Looking around the house:::
It is just after lunch, Matthew is napping, Emma is home from nursery and currently playing pirates with daddy before he goes to work shortly. The front room is rough around the edges, the kitchen is clean except for lunch plates and the rest of the house needs dealing with.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
Health, strength and wisdom for various friends and family without broadcasting details.
For our upcoming summer holidays, getting ready for Emma to start school.
That I would spend more time reading the bible each day.
Something that inspires or brings a smile:::
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
