I have found that one of the problems with my weight is due to bad meal planning, so I have decided to do the Menu Plan Monday on my blog. It originated and is hosted by Organizing Junkie, and it seems a brilliant way of staying organised and also helps with the budget, so I won’t overspend on unnecessary groceries. Here is my Menu for this week. Just note – Christopher doesn’t really eat breakfast, so those are really just for me.

Monday

Lunch: Pita Pizza (pita topped with cheese, tomato and oreganum)
Dinner: Chicken and Vegetable Casserole

Lunch: Left over casserole or Soup with Provitas

My plan for this week, as I am on leave, is to get O R G A N I S E D… Scary stuff 🙂 I am currently living in chaos, and I don’t know where half my stuff is, so I am going to try to simplify, declutter, unchaos, spring clean (in winter) and generally do all those good wholesome wifely things that I would love to be able to do all year around. I just read this post by Laura at Organising Junkie and I think its a great plan – throw out fifty things… I will take photo’s of the chaos, and then show you how/if I manage to sort it out.
