That was my approach in my flower purchasing today when I did the weekly shop!
I do buy flowers most weeks but as I shop in Lidl I am able to do this without spending a fortune and I only get one or two bunches each week, £4-5 covers it (sometimes less if I still have plenty from the week before) and I get a good couple of weeks out of each bunch of flowers I buy as I change the water regularly and cut them down to extend their life.
That said I bought chrysanthemums today which I rarely buy as they are not my favourite flower but I still had daffs in the bathroom from last week, the one bunch of roses I bought last week (split in to two vases and padded out with greenery from the garden) were going to be cut down and would last another week so I decided on the neglected chrysanthemum today.
Purple ones, white ones, yellow ones (and the roses cut down)
So quantity rather than quality this week but I think that’s okay once in a while!
Menu plan for the week was decided this morning before I went to Lidl:
Today: Vegetarian mousssaka, red cabbage and red onion coleslaw, potato wedges
Sunday: Roast pork and all the usual
Monday: Chick pea burgers, rice and salad
Tuesday: Scone based pizza
Wednesday: Caramelised onion and goats cheese flan
Thursday: Tuna pasta salad (Flo’s favourite which we have once a week and is the deal for her eating meals on other evenings which are not her favourite food!)
Friday: Home made chip supper night.
Other than that I am spending the weekend doing my OU marking as I am out at a school all next week. I will try and get some sewing done tonight though.
I hope you are all having a good weekend.
