Its party time and I have jumped on a couple of bandwagons!!

It is a week long party here with the HOTH working away all week.  I 100% do not mind when he works away as it means easy dinners, on time bedtimes and I get to watch heaps of cool tv rather than mega bridge demolition or whatever the hell mega is on!!

Around the house I will be finally getting the toy room/music room/book room finished!!  But more exciting than that I have decided to make a little garden in a space we have which is a bit of a nothing space.   I really should be doing the inside but I for some reason really want to do this!!
Hmmmmmm the possibilities are endless!!
Also this week I have relented and given up on pretending that the "c" word is not 11 weeks away!!  Last year I saw people doing "Elf on a shelf" and I loved the idea but forgot about it until I saw on facebook a status from Two Point Five Kids asking about the elf and some kind person included in the comments a link to http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Elf and I got one!!  Along with a Fireman Sam "c" book and a bookaboo book!!  Whoops bloody internet!!  Looks like a lot of fun and another way to make "c" magical for the kids and get myself into the "c" spirit without resorting to spirits!!  http://www.elfontheshelf.com/ looks like fun!!

There is a lot of weekly meal planning posts floating around today so here is mine
  • Monday- Kids have a premade spag and meatballs from Woolies.  I am having weight watchers beef cannelloni!!
  • Tuesday- Baked beans on toast for all!!
  • Wednesday- pasta bake and garlic bread.  IF MY BRAND NEW OVEN IS WORKING!!  NOT HAPPY WESTINGHOUSE!!
  • Thursday- Meatloaf and veg bake.  AGAIN IF THE FREAKING OVEN IS FIXED.
  • Friday-  Leftover meatloaf and veg bake.
  • Saturday and Sunday are unknown at the moment!!  I will see how much sanity I have and if the HOTH is back!!
Linking up with One Mother Hen for some open slather!!

Also I am still on the lookout for a crafty person who makes bed linen, quilt covers etc!!  PLEASE if you know anyone and can point me in the right direction I would be so grateful!!
