Meal Plan Monday
A bit late but better than never! I had a wonderful weekend in Northumberland. The exhibition at The Bowes Museum was small but really effective and the Wives and Witches talk about tea was fantastic. We even got to sample a few cakes from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Most of which were too hard to eat until you dunked them in a cup of tea!
This week things are thankfully slowing down a bit. I finished off my Christmas shopping this morning, although I still have my Christmas cards to do and from here on out the weekends are busy until Christmas. But work is not quite so hectic, which has taken a bit of the pressure off. I have also started doing the fun bits for my bedroom and someone is coming out to measure for a carpet in a couple of weeks and I am going to have a first look at wardrobes and chest of drawers next weekend.
Next weekend is chock-a-block. My parents are coming down for the weekend and on Saturday morning My Mum and I are off to Borough Market, then to Central London in the afternoon and a party in the evening. On Sunday we are off to IKEA, then Zumba for me and then making the vegetable stew for Sunday dinner and baking for the week ahead, I really want to try making beetroot brownies, and as I scored 4 beetroot for 35p, I have them ready to go. Busy busy!
