Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 16 May

Monday.  It comes around so fast sometimes.  My day began with being hit, kicked and bitten by a child (not mine!).  How about you?  Bet you can't top that!  I went from that behaviour, to another child who was in refusal mode.  Let's face it, the day can only get better from there!  And so it did.  The Prep's got to spend some time on the jumping castle leftover from our Mayfest celebration on Saturday.  Mr Busy made me laugh when he sat at his desk with his homework pouch thing on his head...listening intently.  He's one funny boy.  Miss Sunshine's interschool soccer day went brilliantly as far as she was concerned.

I have this week and next remaining of my Uni semester, with one assignment to finish and one that just needs a polish.  I can't tell you how I'm looking forward to slowing down for a bit!

Of course, the children continue to want to eat.  It's a strange phenomenon really.  So this is what they'll be having put before them.  Or creating for themselves, as the case may be:

Monday:  Chicken & vegetable curry, rice (Me)
Tuesday:  Redcurrant lamb chops, vegies (Miss Sunshine)
Wednesday:  Honey soy chicken, stir fried vegies, rice (Miss Sunshine/Mischief)
Thursday:  Tomato and bacon pasta (Me)
Friday:  Spanish chicken, potato & chorizo, vegies (Miss Sunshine)
Saturday:  Tomato soup, bread & butter (Miss Mischief)
Sunday: Roast chicken, vegies (whoever wants to do it!)

I'd better go and find some milk.  I never did manage to get to grocery shopping last week...and the signs are now beginning to show.

Oh, those children and their appetites! You're kind to continue catering to them.

I woke up this morning sneezing--it's allergy time here--and now I'm sniffing and snorting. Very attractive! I guess it beats getting bit ...

Perhaps. But I'm thinking a bit through a long woolly sleeve is probably preferable! It doesn't last that long and the sleeve protected me. Allergies are YUCK! I hope you have good medication.
