Project 365: Days 139 - 145



Day 139: Playing catch - we spent the day in the Country Park and had a fantastic day.  The boys paddled in the stream with their trainers on so we decided to let them dry out a bit while the boys played a game of catch.

Day 140: Sleepy boy - I worked today so only got a chance to take a photo of my sleeping boy.  What the photo doesn't show is all the trains that he's lined up on his pillow so that he has to sleep halfway down the bed.

Day 141: Cake - I finished work early today so decided to make a lemon drizzle cake.  I probably shouldn't have as I'm trying to cut down on all the junk food and this really isn't the way to go about it.

Day 142: Baby's day out - back to the Country Park for me and O.  It was a beautiful day and he loved playing in the sand pit with his friends.  We all had great fun.

Day 143: Toys - we got the Happlyland toys out today as the weather wasn't so good.  My favourite is the funfair.

Day 144: Bunny - my parents went on holiday so I got a little visitor for the weekend.  This is Sonic the Rabbit.  He is so cute!

Day 145: Climbing trees - there was a festival at our local park so we went down for the day.  It was fantastic.  There was live music and a funfair.  I went on one of the rides with the oldest two and it was great.  They sat on the grass and ate candy floss before going to look for squirrels and climb trees.  We even got to watch Ragsy )from The Voice) sing live.

Project 365: Days 41 - 47

I am struggling to blog at the moment but will be continuing with Project 365.  Here goes week 7.


Day 41: Pancakes! - The children were going to spend a few days at their grandparents so I decided to do Pancake Day early.  My eldest helped to make the batter and then it was my middle boy's responsibility to spread the nutella on. My youngest just helped to eat them.  They were delicious.

Day 42: A quiet meal in - the children are spending the night at their grandparents so hubby and I got to sit down to a nice meal and glass of wine without any interruptions.  It was very strange.

Day 43: A sad day - I received a telephone call from my sister late on Monday night letting me know that our uncle had passed away.  He had fought a very long and brave battle with cancer and my mother had been with him every step of the way.  My mother is the most amazing woman I know. I am sad for the loss of my uncle, and sad for my mother who has lost her little brother.  (I know this is cheating as it's a screen shot rather than a photo but it's the best I could do for today.)

Day 44: A touch of snow - my boys are home from their grandparents and were very excited to see some snow.  We only had a bot of a dusting though, and the rain washed it all away later in the day.  They still managed an hour outside.

Day 45: Happy Valentines Day - hubby gave me this single red rose.  We had decided not to do anything for Valentines Day but he came home from work with this rose the day before.  I think it was more to do with what has been happening this week and how sad I've been rather than a romantic gesture, but it was still lovely.

Day 46: Arts and crafts - our local Council had an open day at the sports centre so I took the boys down for a few hours.  Here they are enjoying painting Spongebob Squarepants onto a bag.  I think they've done a really good job.  Unfortunately, this deteriorated a little while later and my youngest ended up with lots of glue and glitter in his hair.  That was fun to get out.

Day 47: Sleepy time - I have spent the day shopping, cleaning and ironing and will admit to almost forgetting to take a photo.  I managed this one just twenty minutes before midnight.  It may be last minute but I do love photos of them sleeping.

My favourite photo this week is the photo of the rose.  It reminds me that there is beauty in life even when I feel like everything around me is falling apart.  I feel so sad.
