    Morning Everyone
    It is cold and breezy here in Wirral this morning - No plans to go out!!!:p
    Strating off with a lovely brunch-
    Eggy bread, Mushrooms, Baked Beans and Tinned Tomatoes. This should take me through to tonights meal.:D which is Pasta, Bean and Vegetable bake - a WW recipe and I have even planned tomorrows meals.
    After my brunch I am going to 'blitz' the house (downstairs) will do upstairs on Wednesday!!!!! Going to hoover, wash paintwork, change the lounge furniture around - hope to have a good 'workout' Must not forget to do 6 minutes on the Ab Trainer.:p
    I am off work now for 2 weeks and a good spring clean is in order.:eek:
    What about you?

    Hiya Irene hope you enjoy your day. I am going to stick a chicken in the oven in a min for later. Got loads of tidying to do but I don't know why I am bothering because the kids are off school and the house looks like a hurricane has took up camp in it. Apart from that not much really oh I gotta make rice crispy cakes with the kids later.

    Have a nice day all...

    Hi Irene

    Your brunch sounds lush! It is really chilly in Essex today. Spending a good amount of the day studying and trying to find my bored hubby something to do! Golf course is closed! LOL Getting laundry done and that is about it as I have to work tomorrow :-(

    I wish I was off for the next 2 weeks, these last 4 days off have been lovely!!!

    Have a good day!

    Hi
    Rainbow - Yes I work as a receptionist in a High School. What about you? Nothing seems to get done in the house these days properly with working FT and then weekends are shopping, washing, ironing etc..... Don't think I could work FT if it wasn't for the holidays.:p
    Tomorrow my best friend is coming for lunch - she started SW 3 weeks ago and is raving about it - I have always said how good it is and she decided to give it a go.
    You could always do the 3rd floor on Friday.:eek: LOL
    My brunch was delicious....... Changed the EM to a stir fry, trying to cut down on my pasta - but as a veggie I find it hard any ideas anyone?
    Hubby and youngest son have just gone out to look at buying more fish for the garden pond - told them to take as long as they want and eldest son is out all day with his mates so must get started with the HW
    Speak later

    Morning,
    I too am cleaning (dinner party on saturday night turned into more of a house party!!). My lovely Mum is cooking roast lamb, so I will venture round the farm to see them later. Apart from that.... it's just going to be getting ready for work again. Ohh, depending what time it is when I get home I may make a big batch of free spicy parsnip soup and bung it in the freezer.

    I had to work today but came home to an Easter egg! Very naughty, I know, but it's the only one I had so I'm not going to beat myself up over it!

    Happy easter everyone x x

    Irene - I teach at an infant school - and like you don't think I could work full time and run a house without the ample school hols that we get! Do feel sorry for people who have jobs with non school holiday allowances (like nearly everyone!) I stole a bit of easter egg from my mums house before - and had to get my b.f to take it away as I could see temptation calling me!! Just been shopping to buy a baby gate (to stop puppy getting up stairs) its heaving at the shopping outlet - think people had gone cos they were bored!! Hope the tidying/cleanings gone well XXX

    Hi
    I admire anyone who teaches - mind you at infant school it can be very rewrding? By the time they get to High School - ahhhhhhh:eek:
    I did really well with my cleaning after a slow start - did all downstairs, then did our bedroom and the bathroom (a job I hate - well with 3 males in the house)!!!!!!! Just my sons bedrooms to do on Wednesday - that will probably take longer to do thane everything today!!!!!!
    Sitting at the PC with my Easter Egg - which was a bottle of wine (2 glass ones), going to do my stir fry shortly - don't know whether I will do my exercise tonight may do double tomorrow.
    Feel really good tonight - weigh in tomorrow????

    Hi Rainbow
    Hope you are enjoying your holiday. I certainly am. Met up with a friend yesterday and had a good chat, she started SW a few weeks ago and is raving about it. As all my days are green it certainly made me think how more difficult it would be for me if I had red and green days to sort out.:p
    Well aftert a brilliant day doing HW or Monday - didn't stop until 7ish, been to Asda this morning, washer on quite a few times (why do I 'find' washing when the weather is sunny?):eek: I have not yet started 'spring cleaning' upstairs.:sigh: Going to make a start shortly - must get off the PC!!!!!
    Tomorrow off to Chester to look at summer clothes - won't buy much as I want to save that for when I get to target weight.:p
