What I'm Up to This Week

May 23rd, 2016 at 07:03 pm

Eating:
M - hamburgers and coleslaw
T - something from the freezer and salad
W - tuna melts and broccoli
T - mexican eggs and crash potatoes
F - penne and red sauce and courgettes

Spending:
- too much on treats for F's birthday at school! It's not her birthday yet, but the summer birthdays all go the last week of school. She wanted ice cream sandwiches, and it's in the budget.

Watching:
Kirsty and Phil's Love it or List It on Channel 4's iplayer. Have you seen it? One of my favorite shows, partly because of the way Kirsty transforms people's homes on a budget. I read that the American version of this show didn't do such a good job and the renovation work was shoddy, but I think Kirsty does a great job.

Waiting:
- for school to get out for the summer! Tomorrow is select soccer tryouts, Thursday evening I meet with the Board of my new client and Friday is a half day.

Wondering:
- what frugal thing we can do on Memorial Day. Most of our friends are going away for the weekend. I guess we could have a barbeque potluck with anyone is left.

Organizing:
- summer and winter clothing. F has grown like crazy! She's 11 and she's up to the middle of my forehead now. There are a lot of clothes to donate to goodwill or maybe sell (several things are probably better to sell on Craigslist or our local facebook buy/sell group). I need to reorganize the soccer clothes, too. Although the season is over, F has two soccer camps this summer, and our team may play La Liga in the summer. I need to figure out a slightly better system. I will share a photo when I'm done! Something where socks are separated from jerseys, and jerseys are separated from shorts.

    What are crash potatoes? I haven't seen that program I'll need to look out for it.

    Your week sounds like my week. The past couple of years our Dd seems to go through clothes--especially pants, shorts, and shoes, like crazy. There's lots of "this doesn't fit!" and it gets tossed around the room.

I enjoy Love It or Leave It too and agree Kirsty and Phil are better than the others, They had a different couple on last year in the UK though. I also like Sarah B(eany?)'s house show.

    Hi everyone! Glad I'm not the only one going through this clothing thing - all of these things fit less than a year ago!

    ScottishGirl - here is the link to where I got the crash potatoes recipe - so yummy!!! http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/crash-hot-potatoes/

    English Castle - Oh! I remember Sarah Beany! She used to do Property Ladder, too!

    Now... off to the yard to get rid of all the pine needles stuck alongside the driveway... I promised myself I'd do 10 minutes at a time, then do a "work thing" then another ten minutes of pine needles.
