Menu plan Monday 11 Feb 2008 & organising our trip to the UK



I'm sure you guys are sick of reading about my woes with cleaning ladies. I am with you on that one! Our new cleaning lady came on Wed and worked nicely.

However, we've decided that for our lifestyle, we really need someone on a Monday. So hopefully she can adjust otherwise it's back to the drawing board!

In other news, Suzanne introduced me to a really cool application on Facebook called on Track which has forced me to make a detailed action list to plan our next holiday. Dion and I are going to the UK in May and Suzanne and I will be meeting up in Scotland. I honestly can't wait.

We are going to England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland so if you know of any must-do things or must-see places, please let me know. Thanks in advance. And if you want to meet up, great - let's try and make it happen. Who knows? Maybe we can have ourselves an organising fest!

If you're on Facebook, invite me to be your friend and just say something like "read your blog" so I know you're not a weirdo :) By the way, I got some photos done on Saturday --->> there's one on this blog, another on my facebook profile and yet another
here.

Valentine's is on Thursday but since we don't do the actual day celebrating in restaurants, we're doing our dinner on Friday. Here is this week's menu:

Monday
Stirfried chicken, vegetables and rice (carried over from last week)

Tuesday
Spaghetti bolognaise, salad and cheese bread (we're having friends over for supper)

Wednesday
Chicken a la King, rice and carrots

Thursday
Nandos, also carried over from last week

Friday
Out for our Valentine's dinner to the Thai place at Montecasino

BTW, have you gone to get your free book yet?

Enjoy your Valentine's Dinner. I haven't done the Facebook thing yet. Figure that I spend enough time in blog land and don't need another distraction!! Have a great week.

How are YOU?
I love your new profile pic.
I was thinking of you this morning, seems like I haven't "talked" to you in a while.
blessings!

England, Scotland, Wales AND Ireland...how wonderful. Of all my 24 years in the UK, I never went to Scotland - tragic I know! My only suggestion would be, only spend a few days in the city, the countryside you cannot miss, although coming from SA I hear the countryside is beautiful there too. Ireland is my favorite, my Father is Irish and I spent many summer holidays there at my relatives when I was a child. Be sure to visit Killarney, Ring of Kerry, Tipparery...so many beautiful places, oh and don't forget to kiss the Blarney Stone!

Happy planning and I'm sure you'll have a blast with Suzanne!!
