Creating Varied Packed Lunches For Children

I remember the days of having pack ups for school. Soggy sandwiches, crisps and an apple. Not varied at all and after a while, it became very boring to eat every day. 

So when it came to the time that my sons started school, I initially wanted them to go on to school dinners but that didn't happen. The fussy little buggers decided that they wanted packed lunches like their friends and the visions of the soggy ham sandwiches cam flooding back like a nightmare. 

I said there and then that I would make sure that the boys packed lunches would be better than mine were. That they'd get a varied diet and would love checking their lunch boxes each day to see what they had this time.

Dressing For My Shape After Having Children

Dressing For Your Shape, Simply Be, Fashion, Fitness, Skater Dress, Shoes, Women's Shoes, Pumps, Prom Dress, Floral Dress, Thinking Slimmer, Slimpod,

Since having children, I have noticed that my body has changed shape and sometimes it does get me down. From a size 10 before having children and going up to a 14, well nearly pushing a 16, which I knew was so bad for my health. 

Around 6 months ago I made a conscious decision to try and get in shape and embarked on a more healthier lifestyle. Over the past couple of months my shape has changed again, but this time for the better.

Growing Apples with Dobies of Devon

Now our garden is sorted and secure, we are in the process of sprucing it up so it looks lovely when we are sitting outside. For this, we have looked in to plants and flowers that will give us a year-round look. 

Over the next few months we'll slowly be planting in the flowers and plants so that every day of the year, there will be suitable flowers in bloom to make our garden attractive.
