I guess it was inevitable that after going back to work last week while not 100% meant I crashed and burned. Yep, I have a secondary chest infection (history repeating itself) and I'm off work. And I have a feeling I'll not be back. It seems that my work besties and my family have all been concerned about me for a while. I'm burnt out and exhausted. They're all advising me to get signed off long term and just retire at the Summer as planned. It's tempting. I laughed (hollowly) yesterday when I found out it took 2 experienced teachers to team teach my class. And they had my SLA most of the day too. 3 adults for 15 kids. That sums it up nicely I think.
Anyone been watching Jamie's £1 Wonders? It seems people love him or hate him and he gets a lot of unnecessary (in my opinion) abuse. From what I've read the criticism comes from folk who don't understand that it's under £1 per portion by clever buying and cooking in bulk. Of course we frugallers already know how to make meals on a low budget but I'm always open to new ideas. On Sunday I made his savoury pancake bake which is layers of crepe style pancakes with a cheesy sauce with frozen spinach through it. His version had cooked ham as well but I made it veggie/dairy and gluten free and served it with chorizo on the side as that's what I had in the freezer. It was absolutely delicious and the leftovers reheated nicely for lunch next day. I can't find a link to the recipe but you can sign up for all his recipes (free) HERE 😋
