Project 365: Days 153 - 159


Day 153: Guilty! - I caught my little one playing in the dirt.  He looked very guilty when he saw me but I was quite impressed that he'd stayed away from my plants.

Day 154: Little house - O decided that he wanted his cereal in his playhouse.  I suppose we all need some time on our own sometimes,

Day 155: Grow it - I am really pleased with how well my plants are growing. These re my tomato plants and they're looking great.

Day 156: Getting up close - I get photo envy when I look through all the amazing photos in Project 365 so I've been practising my close ups.  I have to admit that it's been taken on my phone because I can't use my camera.  I suppose that's the next thing to master.

Day 157: Train track - O will use absolutely anything as a train track and today it was his seesaw.  He spent ages running his trains up and down it.

Day 158: Say cheese! - It was a beautiful day today so O and I spent most of it in the garden.  He decided to put some sun tan lotion on himself, but most of it ended up on his nose. I wasn't allowed to wipe it off.

Day 159: Another hot and sunny day but the boys were in and out.  On one of their cooling down periods in the house they decided to build some LEGO robots.  This is the police version.

Project 365: Days 132 - 138



Day 132: Biscuits at bedtime - my boys love to have a treat at bedtime and he's sat like Lord Muck in my bed eating biscuits and drinking milk.  I'll regret that when I get into bed later.

Day 133: Jigsaws - it's E's favourite thing to do.  He did about five after school today and they covered my sitting room floor. He won't let us break them up straight away so they had to stay there for a while.

Day 134: Drying dishes - my dishwasher has broken and we have to wait a week for a part to be delivered but it's given Z the chance to help with some chores and he's discovered that he loves drying the dishes.  I wonder how long that will last!

Day 135: Firemen - Dress up time and O has decided to be a fireman.  He'll only wear the hat though.

Day 136: Jumping in puddles - O is doing what he loves best and that's finding as many puddles as he can and jumping in them.

Day 137: Trampoline fun - O is enjoying himself on the trampoline.  It's so nice to have some decent weather so the boys can play in the garden.
Day 138: Gardening (again) - it's the boys weekly gardening time and this week we planted some strawberries.  They ha great fun filling the hanging baskets with compost.

Project 365: Days 125 - 131



Day 125: Gardening - it was a beautiful day so we decided to do some gardening.  The boys planted tomato, broccoli, chilli and salad leaf seeds.  They love doing the gardening and get so excited at the thought of growing their own fruit and veg.

Day 126: A day at a castle - today was a bank holiday so we spent the day exploring Cardiff Castle.  The grounds are beautiful so we took a picnic and sat on the grass.  The boys enjoyed running around playing in the sun.  We did go through the wartime tunnels (which are amazing and ever so slightly frightening) but my youngest got a bit scared of all the noises.  

Day 127: Mealtime - my youngest waiting very impatiently for his food.

Day 128: they're growing! - we were very excited today to see that the pumpkin seeds are growing.  It's such a lovely feeling to see something that you've planted, grow.  

Day 129: windy - we went down to Cardiff Bay for a walk and it was so windy that O wouldn't let go of his hood.  I don't blame him as he had worn his Thomas cap but that blew off his head (a kind workman rescued it for me) so he wasn't taking any chances.  We spent a lovely hour running around and looking at the ducks before going for coffee and cake.

Day 130: a visitor - this was my sight when I went to bed tonight.  I hadn't even heard him go into my bed.  He was so comfortable that I almost left him there.  Almost, but not quite.  I did put him back into his own bed.

Day 131: haircut - he wasn't very happy when we took him for a haircut, but after a bit of bribery from the hairdresser (armed with a bag of Haribo) he finally gave in.  He actually looks like he's enjoying himself in that photo.

Project 365: Days 118 - 124




Day 118: Spring clean - I spent most of today cleaning and I can honestly say that the novelty of having a steam cleaner hasn't worn off yet.  If it stood still for long enough, it got cleaned.

Day 119: Swing - I love these nice days when the boys get to go out to play after school.  Here my oldest boy is enjoying himself on the swing.

Day 120: Bubble wrap - Is there anything better than bubble wrap?  I had a delivery of cleaning products today and there was loads of bubble wrap in the box.  The boys spent ages popping it before my middle boy decided to wrap himself up in it.

Day 121: Bouncing - another lovely day so another day on the garden after school.  The boys love the trampoline and spend hours bouncing on it.

Day 122: Tractor ride - we had to go shopping today and I let my little one nag talk me into letting him go on  the little tractor ride.  He did enjoy it but I know that next time we go shopping he'll be expecting to go on it again.

Day 123: Gardening - my little one planted some sunflower seeds today.  He had great fun digging in the compost and loved getting dirty.  

Day 124: Daddy's shoes - he was very sweet stomping around wearing daddy's shoes today.  It reminds me of a picture that my parents had when I was small called 'Mummy's Shoes'.  Everyone thought I looked like the little girl in the picture.

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.
