Thank you so much for all your kind and thoughtful comments (and messages) on the loss of my Dad, every one of them has helped a great deal. x

Menu Planning.

Onto my menu for the week. I started out this morning with a quick fridge and freezer inventory. The freezer in particular is not that full. We have a lot of frozen veggies, but very little in the way of meat & fish – one chicken breast, one salmon fillet and 500g of minced beef – and so I need to do a little grocery shopping tomorrow. Today’s dinner (Leek & Potato Soup) is taken care off by the remaining contents of my vegetable drawer!

Menu Planning

On our menu:

– Slow cooker Potato & Leek Soup
– Stir Fry Veggies with Noodles & Salmon
Slow Cooker Mexican Lasagna
– Leftover Lasagna
– Out for dinner
– BBQ Pork Chops w/ veggies
– Chicken Curry w/Rice and Naan

Lunches for me will be either eggs or tuna with salad. M eats lunch at work.

What’s on your menu this week?

Hello. Just a little note to explain my temporary absence from this space.

Last Sunday evening my Dad passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was 84 and after the last few years of deteriorating health, it is a blessing that he went this way. The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity and sadness, and of course blogging has been the last thing on my mind, but I will be back very soon. I hope you are all keeping well ♥

My one financial goal for October is to track my spending!

Monday
– £42.48 Grocery (Sainsbury’s)
– £14.39 Grocery (Lidl)

Tuesday
– No spend day

Wednesday
– £7.49 Storage
– £52.91 Shelving + Fixings

Thursday
– £5.80 Eating Out

Friday
– £5.85 Grocery

Saturday
– No spend day

Sunday
– No spend day

A little freezer replenishing on Monday – which reminds me I need to do an inventory – followed by a no spend day on Tuesday. Wednesday I bought (and then installed) shelving in our laundry cupboard. It’s not Pinterest worthy, but it is functional – the main thing!

Tracking my spending has resulted in three no spend days – woo!!
