Tis raining in Cornwall this morning so the kids and I have spent the morning baking some fairy cakes and oaty ginger cookies. Here's hoping the weather improves, although I've said that every week of the summer holidays so far I think! It's a busy week with friends over, a trip to Trethorne Farm, a wedding and Bude Carnival on Saturday. We usually get a Chinese takeaway after the Carnival but my maternity pay isn't leaving us with very much spare, so I'm going to try and recreate something myself - maybe a chow mein. I really need to reign in the money spent on groceries (I've been told) so I'm looking for top tips. My aim is to get our weekly shopping bill down to £40 for 5 of us - not sure of that's possible, but I'll give it a good go.....
