Cooking for Immie

This is a pic of the big vat of bolognese I have just made for Immie. I have put it in to the freezer in individual portions so she can have it with pasta, tatties or  mash. It has swede, carrots and sweetcorn in. I added peas after this pic too. I don't cook for Immie as much as I should/would like. She eats a lot of ready made stuff. Some people will turn their nose up at that but she eats fresh all week at nursery and if you buy sensibly checking the salt, sugar and fat content of anything processed isn't too high then it isn't a problem.

And before anyone bangs on about additives, additives are in the majority of food anyway, seemingly fresh stuff will have additives to colour it, make it last longer and make it taste better.

Imogen loves fish fingers and chips.  Also, shock horror we *whispers* sometimes take her to McDonalds!!!!

 I don't think that makes me a bad mummy, Immie gets a balance and that is what life is about.

Posh Box

On Friday we took delivery of Imogen's beautiful new toy box. It was made by Jeremy at He made it, then drove all the way to Barnsley from Cambridgeshire. It is stunning and we love it. If you're in the market for a toy box I'd definitely recommend him.

Lost & Found

Immie's shoes have been missing for a few days. We finally found them in an old jiffy envelope under our bed. Wonder who put them there then ;)

Immie's favourite bedtime book

Immie is now asking for abedtime story. This is her current favourite. It's all about a daddy bear who has to babysit for grizzle bears. At first he struggles. Then he gets the hang of it and goes home to help his wife with their own baby. He's a SNAB. (Sensitive New Age Bear!)

Rescue cat

Last night Cat got left at nursery! I prepared myself for an hour of tears from Immie but fortunately managed to distract her. I rescued cat this morning as I couldn't face potentially a whole weekend of tears. Just need to remember to pick up Panda tonight :-/ Mama x - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
