Homemade lasagne tonight with salad, as our food consumption in the past few days hasn't consisted of much that is green, or isn't snack type foods. Tomorrow the children wanted homemade pizzas for new years eve, so will put some veg on those too. We don't normally celebrate new year, but after such a year (covid and divorce) I feel we should do something. Maybe a game night of family film night (as kids have spent most of their time off working on individual things). We have everything in the house so no need to venture out at all - just how we like it.
Great plans for celebrating New Year!
I've also been onto a friend / councilor i know about the proposed building at the back of the house. He is willing to meet with me socially distanced to look at the proposed site and happy to fight in our corner when it comes to planning - fingers crossed

Amazing you've got a local Councillor to help with the stupid planning permission submission. Right of access and right to light whatever it is that'll get them to back off.
Your new years sounds good. We had a disco in the kitchen. We have a little disco light from amazon and a Spotify playlist and we were away.
My kids don't want to do anything and they haven't been with their dad so it's too much of a fight to get them to do it for me now. I'll try and summon some can be bothered tomorrow.
I'm really hoping your home sells this time xxx

More competitions entered today. Still need to meal plan and then do food order before tonight so I don't miss my slot. As i used to work at the town council i still know quite a few of the councillors on the planning board and as i had quite a lot to do with them, they all know me fairly well (and like me). Unfortunately although the town council can suggest the new builds are not suitable it is not their decision to make. The councillor coming to see me however will make a good case for it if he believes he needs to. We shall see. The proposed builder has a lot of influence around here too and has built the other side of the road in previous years on a small scrap of land, which had similar issues so I'm not too hopeful to be honest, but you never know. I guess even if it makes the builder sit up and realise we are not just going to let him get away with things it will be worth it maybe. I looked online at houses and one of the previously sold houses in the village that i like is back on the market. It would appear that although many houses flew off the website several of them have returned. I am sure it is on for 20k less too. Its just a shame i am at least 3 months away from getting mine on the market and who knows how long before it sells. I can dream and keep fingers crossed lol
