We are all back at school and work now. I was really pleased to have been able to take a bit of time off over half term – in fact I only ended up working for one day of it! I’m feeling a bit anxious about how I will juggle childcare and work over the Summer though. I am running out of holiday days and fast and 6 weeks is a long time..
Col (the eldest) is back at home with us for a little while. It’s awesome having him at home but my word the cost of food has just soared. It’s not like he is Pac-Manning his way through the fridge.. Simply put, things come in 4’s, not 5’s!
Because of this more than slight leap in the cost of the groceries I am having to be a bit careful so we are back to planning. On the upside, Col is pretty good in the kitchen so he will be cooking once or twice a week which will be a nice break for me.
I have tried to plan meals which can be padded out with vegetables or which don’t really come in packs so we are at least eating pretty healthily I think!
