I can’t believe that I am back at work tomorrow…. I am gutted as I have loved spending time with the kids. I thought that they were back at school but they don’t go back until Wednesday so I am trying to make a Dad survival kit as Mr Frugal is at home with them tomorrow and Tuesday and I don’t want them sat in front of the TV all day.
My first idea was baking and decorating fairy cakes as the kids love this but Mr Frugal is not so good with cooking so I have weighed out all of the ingredients and written out some super basic instructions so hopefully everything will go well.
I spent the last day of my fortnight off doing all the jobs that I wanted to do over the two weeks but never really got around to doing and to be honest, there are loads that I still haven’t done but Mr Frugal is now off for two weeks and I plan on keeping him busy 😉 Although I haven’t shared that fact with him just yet.
We all went swimming this morning and I am so proud of Miss Frugal as she managed to do a full breadth of the pool without armands on and is seems a lot more confident in the water which is brilliant as I hate swimming. Its not the swimming part I hate its the getting my face wet that I hate and I will not go under water! My mam was the same so I am so pleased that she is doing so well with her swimming. The pool was really cold though and was a nightmare when we got out as both kids were shivering while we were trying to get them dried as quick as possible.
I have decided to go back to Slimming World this week as well so I am now not only trying to be frugal but am trying to be frugal on a diet. I have been on Slimming world earlier in the year and I lost about a stone and a half… Got way more to lose though and I gave up the diet as I mistakenly thought I could motivate myself and not bother going to the weekly class. I am going back though as I need the motivation that you get from going to the class.
I will let you know how I get on….
