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 62 - 68




Day 62: Seaside fun - well, at least it was supposed to be.  We decided to drive down to the Gower in Swansea and stopped at Oxwich Bay.  The sun was (almost) shining so we got a ball from the car and headed down the beach.  It was so cold and windy that the little one refused to walk and the older two complained bitterly.  We lasted about 15 minutes before heading back to the car.  Hubby was told in work the next day that Oxwich is renowned for being windy, hence all the surfing action there.  Hmm, I never knew that....

Day 63: Toddler tantrums - I worked today so not much opportunity to take photos, but I took this one of the toddler after he threw his duvet out of the cot, no doubt complaining about going to bed.

Day 64: Fast asleep -  Again, another day in work so another bedtime photo.  This is my middle boy surrounded by his toys.  He loves all his cuddly toys and can't sleep unless he has them all in bed with him.  One of his favourites at the moment is Luigi (because he's green).

Day 65: Show me the rabbit -  The little one and I spent the afternoon at my mum's and my sister took O out to show him the bunny rabbit.  He enjoyed stroking him for all of 30 seconds before a football caught his attention.  I think the rabbit was quite pleased though as the poor thing was petrified.

Day 66: Poorly boy - O has come down with a cough and cold so asked to sleep in my bed.  I do love having cuddles with him and could spend hours just watching him sleep. 

Day 67: Train-time - Oliver insists on having a train track built for him every day.  He loves nothing more than attaching all the trains together and running them around the track.

Day 68: School work - I had parents evening for my oldest son this week and I was so proud to be told how well he is doing in school.  He really enjoys learning and does a bit of work every day at home.  He's got this book where he writes stories and draws pictures to go with them.  He's my little budding author.
