Whilst I almost relish the fact that normal service will resume and we will get back to some kind of normality I have to admit I am not looking forward to the amount of organisation that goes into just one weekday.
With study books at the ready, new uniforms all ironed hanging in the wardrobes, the term time diary completed with all dates noted the only thing left for me to do is wait for 5th September.
Even though I may seem quite organised I am always trying to think of things that is going to make back to school just that bit easier, especially as this September brings the eldest off to high school and the youngest starting full time 'big boy' school!
One thing that I believe will help keep us on track is a weekly meal planner/ We have tried many a time to get one organised but it has never happened but this time I am determined to make it work.
Every Sunday I will post our weekly meal planner, with links to some of the recipes and tutorials. So whether your after some midweek meal inspiration or just want to try something different then feel free to have a go at some of the meals.
