Mother’s Day Gifts from Etsy

It’s Mother’s Day in the UK on 22nd March this year. I am going to put together a few lists of things that may help you decided on what gifts you’d like to buy or receive this year. I’m starting with Etsy as it’s my favourite place for special and unusual gifts.

Prints from Etsy

Violet Grace makes some lovely prints, mostly word based.

I love this print which you can download or order pre-printed and have it personalised to suite you, including colours and words. Prices start from £6. Violet Grace’s prints would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift from Etsy.

I really love this Mother an Daughter print though, this would certainly make me smile.

Jewellery Mother’s Day Gifts from Etsy

What about a beautiful necklace set from Dear Ava. I think it’s so pretty and has the perfect sentiment for a Mother’s Day Gift.

Necklaces £28.03

Or how about a personalised disc necklace with up to five names.

Mother’s Day Keepsake Gifts from Etsy

I love this beautiful tree block, you can also change the word Family to Mother (or even Grandmother.)

Or maybe your Mother would like a cushion. This one comes as a cover or with the cushion pad and you can choose white or hession. The personalisation is completely up to you.

Mother Cushion £10- £15

Mother’s Day Candles.

I love my candles and I’d be happy to receive something special. In fact, I’ll probably be doing a whole post on candles in the near future. For now, here are my favourites from Etsy.

This lovely scented soy wax candle comes in an apothecary jar. You can choose from six different scents and an amber or clear glass jar. You can choose what you want on the label.

Meal Planning – Another Birthday

This week we are on to the second birthday of the year, Graham, my husband. We won’t be going out anywhere so we’ll probably have a take out on Wednesday.

Last weeks meal plan went okay. We didn’t have a Brinner (fry up) we just had battered chicken we found in the freezer with chips. The pizza was replaced with my home made puff pastry pizza. The Chorizo and Mozzarella gnocchi bake was really delicious. Well definitely have it again sometime. Although the recipe said it was for 6 and it was barely enough for three of us (the others had pasta bake as they were not keen to try gnocchi.)

The Planner

The planner has taken it’s place on the fridge and it’s being used well. I’m getting more suggestions off family members for what they fancy, or if they wish to change something. It’s also good for remembering what we have planned for each day so we can make sure we have all the ingredients. I filled it in this week and then did the shopping. Then I remembered it was Graham’s birthday! So we will have to bake him a cake and swap Wednesdays meal for a take out of his choice (I bet it’s Indian curry!)

This weeks Menu + Birthday Meal

  • Monday – pizza
  • Tuesday – Fry up (Brinner)
  • Wednesday – Birthday Take Out
  • Thursday – spaghetti bolognese (or lasagne)
  • Friday – Fish and chips
  • Saturday – chicken pasta bake
  • Sunday – pie and mash

I will have to get the kids in the kitchen to make our favourite chocolate Cake for their Dad’s birthday…no idea what we’ll decorate it with yet though. Maybe my little chefs can come up with something.

Getting back on track with a new planner

Avon meal planner

I bought a planner…bit of a plug as I’m an Avon Rep and I got this lovely magnet planner from my Avon Store. It was just what we needed and it also comes with a magnetic pull off shopping list book.

We argue a lot about food in our house, it’s one of our biggest problems. It’s difficult finding food for four adults and three children. Life used to be so much simpler.

Anyway, now I can jot down the meals on this planner and if anyone has an issue they can rub it out and replace it. I don’t mind so long as everyone is happy.

Breakfast is pretty much the same every day, a choice of toast, crumpets, croissants or cereal. Whatever they fancy, they generally get it themselves. The lunch section on the planner will probably only be used when the kids are off school.

Then there is a snack section on the planner, which will be handy to keep a track of the goodies that can be all eaten in one day if I’m not careful. Seriously, I can have doughnuts, cakes, biscuits, crisps etc and they’ll all be eaten within a day, or maybe two.

Anyway, let’s get on to this weeks meal Plan.

Weekly Meal Plan

  • Saturday – Curry (usually from a jar!)
  • Sunday – Lamb roast dinner
  • Monday – pies and mash (or roasters)
  • Tuesday – chorizo and Mozzarella Gnocchi Bake
  • Wednesday – fajitas
  • Thursday – Brinner (fry up)
  • Friday – Something light as we are going out (pizza maybe?)

With the option of wiping off and swapping around on the planner I’m sure this will be happening a lot. I always have a back up food in the freezer for those days. It’s generally chicken or fish and chips!

Book Worms Monthly – February

Finally, January is over!

Hello, Welcome to Book Worms Monthly February. Last month seemed to go on forever, it didn’t help that I was stuck with one book that I’d started in December. I did read through a couple of kid’s books for reviews, but reading 1Q84 by Haruki Mirakami had me both equally enthralled and exasperated. Have you ever read a book that made you feel like that? Anyway, on to this months linky.

Reading is my passion and I love to write about what I’ve read. I’m a real book worm and I have been since the day I could read. I decided to start this linky so that other book worms could Share. I’m starting monthly for now, so you have a whole month to link up your posts. You can link up to four posts, so that’s one a week. Or if you like you can link up some of your older posts.

Let’s share what we read and give other’s ideas what to read next. Tell me your reviews, you book reading lists, your author interviews, kids book favourites, Young Adult books, and even posts about your favourite authors. Anything book related is allowed and I can’t wait to read them all. I want to find all the book worms out there.

Here is last months linky to give you some idea of what book worms monthly is about. I’m trying to reach out to all the book worms out there to come and join me with their posts monthly.

Join Us for Book Worms Monthly January!

Book worms Monthly will be posted every four weeks, and you can join in at any time. I will share anyone who links over on my Social Media sites, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Mix (formerly Stumbleupon.) I’ll also come along and read and comment on your post. Please do share this link up with your friends.

Link up your Book Worm Monthly January book posts below.

Here’s a badge to share. No code, just copy and paste it on your blog and link the photo back to mine if you wish. Or please mention my blog
