Friday Club Meets The Chase!

 
 
Starting with last night, hubby came home with some Slovenian treats from a work colleague...and very yummy it was too!
 
 
After  an early start this morning and spending a couple of hours doing housework, I arranged to meet a friend in The Range to see if there were any bargains, then a quick trip to Lidls.
We both did well in The Range, having chosen several things with 25% off labels...when we went to pay, they were down 75%! I think I will nip back tomorrow for another look!
Lidl's also had some bargains....cherry plum tomatoes for 29p...
 
 
 
...large red peppers 29p...
 
 
...large ready to eat mangoes 29p
 
The tomatoes made tasty mini kebabs to go with our lasagne,
the red peppers I roasted whilst the lasagne was cooking and will be turned into soup with some lentils tomorrow, and the mangoes will be a juicy treat for Teen One and I over the weekend.
 
 
 
Our Bible story at Friday Club tonight was Balaam's ass...which of course spoke to Balaam after receiving an undeserved beating.
For the craft we  made  "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" using some print offs of Eeyore and Donkey (from Shrek)
It wasn't until we had printed them off that Teen One said "oh that's funny....they are talking donkey's too!"
The kids really enjoyed this simple craft. We cut out tails from card and added some blue tack on the back...the kids played it over and over and were eager to get home and see how well their mums and dads did!
I guess the old games are the best!
When we get home...our usual routine is to have a cuppa...share some choccie (Friday night is chocolate night in our house!) and then watch "The Chase" on catch up.
Tonight was no exception, but imagine my surprise when Bradley said "In the Bible, what animal spoke to Balaam?!"

  1. We were looking at Moses as a baby and I managed to get one girl in tears when we played a game called killing babies!
