Project 365: Days 54 - 60

It's our half term this week - a week later than most other areas.  It's been a week of guitar practise, lost teeth, Minecraft (that game seems to be taking over our lives) and indoor picnics due to the bad weather.  We've also had the obligatory half term project which involves designing a poster for St Davids Day.


Day 54: Another tooth has come out!
Day 55: The books on my bedside table
Day 56: Guitar lesson
Day 57: Playing Minecraft
Day 58: Indoor picnic
Day 59: This dinosaur seems to be following me today
Day 60: The school project is half done! Happy St Davids Day.

Project 365: Days 111 - 117




Day 111: New bed - my little one is asleep in his new bed but it hasn't been easy.  He keeps going back into my bed any chance he gets.  I'm sure we'll get there but it could be a difficult week.  Wish me luck.

Day 112: Spring cleaning - I've been sent a steam cleaner to review and I'm strangely excited at the prospect.  Is that wrong?

Day 113: Having fun - I got up to find my three boys playing and looking at books in our new mini library (how posh am I?)  It was a lovely sight to see them all smiling and laughing,

Day 114: For sale - I'm trying to make a bit of extra cash by eBaying anything I can.  The only downside is having a bedroom full of bags of items for sale.

Day 115: Colouring - my middle and youngest boys decided to do a bit of colouring today.  The only problem was that my youngest decided to colour himself in too.  

Day 116: Smiles - but unfortunately this was quickly followed by tears as my little one developed a really bad cough which I think is croup.  He was really poorly and I was up with him for most of the night.  I hope he gets well soon.

Day 117: Gardening - we did some planting today; the boys planted sunflower, pumpkin and sweetcorn seeds that we were sent to review.  They really enjoyed themselves and can't wait to do some more.

Project 365: Days 104 - 110




Day 104: Lunch time - my little one making a good effort with his Sunday lunch. He always insists on using full size cutlery even though he struggles to use them.

Day 105: Sleeping boy - after such a busy day he couldn't manage to stay awake for the day and fell asleep on the floor.

Day 106: Balloons - my oldest boy is 7 tomorrow and we've prepared the house ready for him.  It only feels like yesterday that he was born.

Day 107: Birthday Boy - he has had am amazing day which ended with a family party and homemade chocolate cake.  Where have the last 7 years gone?

Day 108: Kickboxing - the boys practice their kickboxing nearly every night and it's paid off as they're really good at it.  My oldest boy does some fantastic kicks.

Day 109: Converse - he had his first pair of Converse for his birthday. He is such a cool dude.

Day 110: Books - we have had a really busy day moving my middle and youngest boys into a new bedroom and converting the old nursery to a mini library.  The boys love it as all their books are in there mow.  My youngest wasn't too impressed when I took his cot apart and I'm wondering how he's going to settle in his big boys bed tonight.

Project 365: Days 48 - 54



Day 48: Science day - we went to Techniquest in Cardiff Bay and had an amazing time.  The boys were completely engrossed in all the experiments and this photo is of my 5 year old putting the organs back into the human body.  He then went on to put the human skeleton together.  A future doctor maybe??  We all had a great time and will be going back there very soon.

Day 49: Reading -   I spent the whole day interviewing for new staff at work so was completely exhausted,  It was so nice to go home and see my boys.  I'm currently reading this Famous Five book to my oldest two and I love it.  I adored anything by Enid Blyton when I was young and I love being able to pass this on to my own children.

Day 50: Colouring - Another day spent at work but I had parents evening for my 5 year old after work.  It was so lovely to hear how great he is getting on in school and how much his fine motor skills have progressed since he started in Reception class.  His teacher raved about his reading and learning skills and I was an even prouder mummy than normal.  This photo is of a piece of work that he brought home.

Day 51: Sleepy boy - we had a bit of a bad day today.  We went to a friends for lunch where my 2 year old proceeded to cry, and cry, and cry.  I started to feel ill and ended up leaving before bursting into tears.  By the end of the evening I couldn't talk or swallow and felt very sorry for myself.  I spent the evening in bed before waking up and realising that I hadn't taken a photo that day.  I managed to get this one of my now calm child sleeping sideways in his cot.

Day 52: Family matters - it was the day of my uncles funeral which, as you can imagine was very emotional and tiring.  It was hard to see my mother so upset  and I felt helpless as there was nothing I could do or say to make it better.  I think that times like these do make you realise what's important in life, so this is me and one of my very important things.  My children and my family are what matters more than anything.

Day 53: After effects - I spent the day with my parents, reading sympathy cards and chatting about life in general.  My mother had a vase full of these beautiful lilies.

Day 54: Messy play - Ollie and I had a play date at a friends house to do messy play.  It was amazing and he loved playing in the dirt and with the water.  He wasn't so keen on all the food items and just pointed at them saying yuck.  We'll have to work on that one.
