Welcome To My Internal Dialogue

Welcome To My Internal Dialogue

As I predicted when I set my goals for this year “Nothing New” has been a challenge, and not one I am particularly happy with my progress on. Early in the new year I was out shopping, as one does, and was accosted with a mountain of marked down Christmas decorations, and I mean seriously

We Keep On Eating – Meal Plan 29th January – 11th February

Meal planning is still progressing relatively well.  We had a few unplanned/leftover meals mostly due to celebrating Miss Squid’s Birthday and not having the energy to cook properly. We also had an unplanned “take away (out)” meal for Miss Squid’s actual Birthday – is anyone surprised that when you ask a 3 year old what

A few refinements have been made to the project.  I’ve decided that even if

What a Start!

What a Start!

The blog was officially launched today, and I have been overwhelmed with the support, thank you. I’m here to do another meal planner post so here goes… Last fortnight’s planning went well, we made a few adjustments but did not have to have to go back to the supermarket after the big shop which is
