Yesterday's Menu Post: Week Beginning 21 June

I began putting this post together last night....and then had to go out so forgot to come back to it. LOL

Wow! I've reached a milestone. Thirty-five followers. The numbers fluctuate a little here and there, but I'm feeling just a little bit chuffed. Silly, in the grand scheme of what's important in life but it's a nice little surprise when I finally find two seconds to check out comments and other favourite blogs!

We're in our last week of school, with all the flurry and excitement that goes along with the anticipation of a three week mid-year break. The kids are all pretty tired, mind you, as are the staff. But still. Three blissful weeks of sleeping in and relaxing. YES! There are some beautiful blessings to working in education!

This week's menu is a little short. We've lots of plans over the weekend and so have the amazing blessing of not having to plan for those three days. I'm telling you, I'm very easily pleased!

Monday: Chicken casserole, potato & mushroom gratin
Tuesday: Oven fried chicken, vegies
Wednesday: Baked potatoes, coleslaw, cheese, bacon
Thursday: Pasta bolognaise

There you have it...four very boring days of meals!

I was very proud of myself yesterday. I managed to cook myself something to take for lunch, have breakfast, make the kid's lunches and then put dinner in the crockpot in preparation for staying late at school for our fortnightly staff meeting. Then whadayaknow? No staff meeting!!!!!!! We still ended up getting home late, by the time I'd finished typing up psychology flash cards and chatting to the Library Teacher about the upcoming school holidays. So my crockpot efficiency and organisation was not totally in vain.

Tracy, personal question nothing to do with blogging: do you know when Helen's birhday is?? Want to do something for her when it is. Love and blessings for lovely holidays, Jodie.

No crockpotting is ever in vain!

It's so lovely to sleep in, isn't it? I keep trying to get up early to enjoy the cool of the morning, but sleeping in has a greater pull on me, I fear!

Hope you have a wonderful break!

Sometime in August, Jodie. I don't know the exact date either.

Frances, I've done the unimaginable and impossible. I slept in until 9.30am two days in a row. Not really sure how that happened!
