Project 365: Days 90 - 96




Day 90: Chocolate! - I never usually get an Easter egg all to myself but hubby surprised me with this massive Dairy Milk one.  Happy Easter to me.

Day 91: My boys - We went to my in-laws for lunch and an Easter egg hunt which the boys thoroughly enjoyed.  This is after they'd found (and eaten) their chocolate.

Day 92: More chocolate - there's just too much of it in the house.  I finished off this bag of mini eggs as I figured that the sooner it was eaten the better.  The problem is there's still lots more to eat.  Well, if I must.....

Day 93: LEGO - my oldest son has started following the instructions to build LEGO vehicles.  He's really good at it and follows the instructions perfectly.  He obviously takes after me.

Day 94: Shower - almost a year after ripping our old shower out we finally have a brand new one.  It's amazing.  

Day 95: Painting rocks - we had a bit of a craft day today.  The older boys did their homework ready to go back to school next week and then we painted some rocks and anything else the boys could get their hands on.  It was great fun.

Day 96: Pampering - I went on a spa day to my local hotel and had an eye treatment and a manicure.  It was bliss to sit there in peace, have a lovely lunch with a glass or two of wine, and a chat.  I feel very chilled out now.  Maybe I should do it more often.

Project 365: Days 69 - 75




Day 69: A family get together - As it was mother's Day we all went to my sisters for food.  The boys had great fun playing with their cousins and I enjoyed a good chat with my mother and sisters.  O decided that he wanted to try on some 3D glasses and was delighted when everyone laughed at him.  He is quite the little joker.

Day 70: Jigsaw marathon - I got home from work to find that the boys had filled the floor with jigsaws. They had a lovely time putting together as many jigsaws as they could find, but what I loved was that they worked together really well.  Hardly any fighting, crying or screaming for once.

Day 71: Hungry Hippos - I've been to work today but managed to catch this photo of the three boys playing Hungry Hippos.  I love it when they play games together.

Day 72: Flower - My Mothers Day flowers are still going well.  I'm going to try to learn how to take the perfect shot of a flower.  That's my mission for the next few weeks.

Day 73: Swings - O managed to talk me into taking him to the park after the school run even though it was freezing.  It was great to see him running around and getting some fresh air, and he particularly loved the swing.  

Day 74: Finger painting - O asked to do some painting this morning so we got the finger paints out and covered the floor.  I enjoyed getting mucky and dabbing paint everywhere; including all over himself.  We now have a series of dots over numerous pieces of paper :-)

Day 75: Snow! - It wasn't forecast but we've just had a really heavy downfall of snow.  It's all white outside.  It looks very pretty but I'm starting to get desperate for some warmer weather.  Will I ever be able to get my sandals out from the back of the wardrobe?

It's time for week two of Project 365 over on The Boy and Me.  It's been a bit of a strange week with poorly children so we haven't been out much.  We still managed to have some fun indoors though.

Day 7: Playing catch indoors
Day 8:  Play fight with daddy before bedtime
Day 9: Doing the obstacle course on Wii Fit
Day 10: Poorly boy
Day 11: No school for ill children so we did some painting instead
Day 12: Playing hide and seek (hiding in the cupboard)
