It’s been a long week

Busy, busy at work all week, so I am feeling quite tired. Last weekend was quite full so I didn’t manage a really good house clean, and the untidiest of my three daughters is currently home from university, so the house is a tip!! This weekend is also looking busy, but I will have to fit in some housework or I will get really twitchy. I can only deal with so much chaos!

 Despite her sloppy habits, DD2 did cook the dinner last night. I was very grateful for this, although the kitchen looked as if there had been a minor vandalism incident afterwards. She made sausage and beer casserole from the A Girl Called Jack cookbook. It was OK, but not the best recipe we have tried. Again, there was a lot of liquid. Jack likes runny food! If I make it again I will put in less beer and more seasonings as it was lacking a certain depth of flavour.

 So this weekend will be a sprint to clean the house, sort some paperwork, do the laundry, prepare for DD3’s birthday on Monday and bake a cake. I am out for dinner Saturday evening and my parents are popping in for a visit too, then we have a takeaway planned for Sunday as a birthday treat. I won’t have to do lots of cooking anyway.

 Do you have anything good planned this weekend?
