Word of the Week 12/09/14

This week can only be described in one way:

word of the week frantic

With a new role to learn, an office and storage cupboard full of files and documents to get familiar with, and a constant stream of people to my office with enquiries and requests, I literally haven’t stopped at work. And working longer hours has meant getting home too late to start cooking dinner. Rather that give in to fast food temptations, I’ve been trying to utilise the many kitchen gadgets I own to take the pressure off with slow cooked meals and timer cooked doughs prepped while I eat breakfast (and I always welcome new ideas for cook while I’m working recipes if you have some).

Where to start?!

With Bunny back at swim club and about to start Rainbows tonight, and dinner starting later we’ve had a few evenings off-routine and even a couple with Bear who’s taken to napping in the day time this week. Meaning that by the time I’ve sat down in the evening, all I’ve wanted to do is go to bed. But with my first sponsored post in a while to write I’ve had to prioritise that. And while it may sound as though I’m complaining, it was a post I really wanted to write anyway and I actually enjoyed it even though it took longer to finish than normal!

But seriously, I could sleep for a week right now if I could!

    Hope it sorts into shape for you, having lost over two days to sleep so far this week I wouldn’t recommend it. My MS has made me feel really rubbish this week but hey ho it’s not all bad. You sound like your secretly enjoying it. Have a good weekend I know I am going to. Don

  4. Ooh, sounds very full on. I can recommend bolognese in the slow cooker-and if you make enough you can turn it into lasagne the following night. And pulled pork, with apple chunks and cinnamon-150 mls of water, stock cube, teaspoon of cinnamon and a couple of apples into chunks and cook for 7 hours on low.
    Hope you get some rest soon x

    Those shelves look like they need a lot of TLC and a good sort out! Good luck with it all. Make sure you post the ‘after’ photo, once you have managed to get it all under control. #WotW
