Halloween meal plan and a few snaps from our weekend!

This week has been crazy!  We have been living without a kitchen during the week and our new kitchen is finally going in as I type!  It has meant our house in chaos, lots of quick microwave and slow cooker meals and spending as much time out of the house as possible!

Happy Halloween

I will write a proper post about the new kitchen plans when it is complete but for now here are a few pictures of our kitchen so far…

The units from diy-kitchens are very sturdy and of good quality. There’s a long way to go but it’s so exciting to see everything start to take shape!  I’m also ridiculously excited about the fact that my dishwasher has been fitted!! I have a dishwasher!!! Eek!

We have been spending a lot of time at my parent’s house this weekend as our house has been taken over by kitchen units and boxes! Harry has had a great time chasing the dog around, enjoying the Autumn leaves and dressing up for Halloween.

He also really enjoyed trick or treating his Auntie Lucy and Uncle Phil and playing with their musical instruments!

We had a lovely day today with my mum.  We went for a walk, played with Poppy (Harry’s best friend, my parent’s dog) and took Harry for a ride on the miniature train at Brookside Garden Centre.  He sulked until Nanna got on the train too but once we were moving he loved it!  He was so curious, pointing out all the things that he wanted me to name for him.
