The long-awaited meet and have your photo taken with Hello Kitty was not quite what we had been expecting. The "official" polaroid photo is probably no better than my snap and everything went extremely quickly.
Charlotte enjoyed herself though. She was really well-behaved, held my hand all the time and was fascinated by the city centre. She loves the goody bag which I was impressed by as well. Its contents were much better than I had feared - cute pencil, stickers and a lovely keyring.
Here's my menu for this week
MONDAY Tofu sausages with boiled potatoes, carrots, broccoli and tomato salad
TUESDAY Savoury waffles (we had guests last Fri so they didn't get made)
WEDNESDAY Vegetable stew (to use up the celeriac P. bought by mistake!)
THURSDAY Lentil curry and rice
FRIDAY Homemade pizza with mushrooms, peppers, sweetcorn, olives and cheese.
SATURDAY Nut roast (if we manage to find celery!) with red cabbage and lots of veggies
SUNDAY Fridge surprise - to eat up all our left-overs (with microwave baked potatoes)
We had some changes to last week's menu but all in all I was really satisfied about how well my plan worked. Putting it up here gave me great motivation to stick to it.
The monkeys also ate pretty well. Yann was not 100% fit so he didn't eat as much as I expected but both of them tried a lot. I was proud of them.
