Meat Free Mondays - 22 May 2017


Happy Monday my friends.

I usually give you a wee snapshot into my week on a Monday before I share the Meat Free Mondays recipes with you, but this week I thought I'd show you where I work. Doesn't it look lovely and colourful?

I work in a children's library. I've worked here for 20 years now and I can't tell you how much fun it is spending time with all the kids from babies to teenagers. I have a blast all week helping kids find just the right book, singing songs at Bookbug (rhyme time), telling stories to toddlers and doing crafts and activities with the kids in the holidays. I also have a knitting club for kids each week and a code club, where kids can learning computer coding.

All that and I get to decorate the library and paint murals on the windows. Yes, they pay me for this! I used to work full-time, but I cut my hours when I had Cooper and then again when I got so busy with my blog, but I'm still there a few days a week having fun.

So now I've told you a bit about my week, it's time to share some recipes with you. As usual they are awesome and a big thank you goes out to all the bloggers who contribute each week. I hope you leave inspired and go veggie at least one day this week.

    1. Yes it's a great place to work. There are even more clouds than you can see. Our local Theatre gave them to us at the close of a Roald Dahl play. We love them.

  2. your work space looks so colourful and welcoming - and such a nice place to spend your day - I am sure you are great with the kids and making the space look fun. And I really need to get some more meals on my blog to share here (the nights are so dark and busy that it is a bit of a challenge right now)

    1. Yes it really is good and the kids love coming in and spending time with us. There is a reading challenge during the summer holidays for primary aged children. You should check in your local library. That might encourage them.

    I agree with Kate yours is such a cool job. Painting wall murals, teaching kids to knit and singing songs in that colorful atmosphere is so much fun.

    Smashing roundup this week - I feel like a dog with the proverbial four lamp-posts! Ha ha!
