Living Arrows 17/52 [2019]

Happy Monday! What a week it has been! Daisy moved up from 12 to 24 hours at Nursery. This seemed to go well, although she got a little sad about 30 minutes before the end of the evening, as other parents arrived to collect their children. Because of this, we have decided we will try and collect her at 6:30 where possible, instead of waiting until 7pm. I have been making the most of the extra hours already to work, complete chores and errands and just get ready for more days off together. This weeks living arrows 17/52 post is now live!

Living Arrows 17/52

This weeks photo was taken by Thomas when I was having a nap. Daisy and I have had a bit of a tummy bug the last few days so we have been napping lots and taking it easy. Daisy absolutely loves playing with Duplo, as you can see, and has quite the collection now. We love toys that encourage Daisy to use her imagination and I know that Duplo is one of Tom’s favourite toys to play with too!

Slow cooker chicken and prawn paella recipe

Getting up in the morning and planning dinner is a part of our normal family routine now. It is SO convenient to place a dish in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. Sometimes we don’t have time in the morning so I’ve been testing a range of quicker slow cooker dinners, that only take 2-3 hours. This slow cooker chicken and prawn paella is one such dish. It is ready in around 2.5 hours and tastes almost as good as a paella that has been slaved over for hours!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #69 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! I hope the week has been a good one for you so far. This week I turned 31! We’ve had a nice meal out with family, and a few different things going on. Despite this, we have stuck to our meal plan and not resorted to a takeaway. I personally love meal planning and look forward to planning new meals and shopping for ingredients online each week. I love seeing what everyone is linking up and getting inspiration for my own meal plan. I’m running this weekly meal planning linky, that allows other bloggers to share their meal plans too. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving.

Prepare for Winter with Boost and the Winter Wallet (AD)

AD. The weather has been all over the place for the last few weeks hasn’t it?! We’ve been home a lot, between chicken pox and other illnesses, and I’ve been surprised by just how warm it has been in my home some days. We’re lucky to live in an energy efficient flat, at the moment, which means our home is pretty warm all year round. Despite this, and as I love a bit of financial planning, I am already thinking about saving money for our Winter energy bills. I’m someone who thinks if you’re cold then you should pop the heating on, especially if you have elderly relatives or little children at home like we do. I feel really grateful to be able to just switch the heating on anytime. Today I want to help you be able to do the same this coming Winter! Prepare for Winter with Boost and the Winter Wallet!
