It’s week 7 of Project 365, and I have to admit I’ve been very slack on taking photos. We’ve not been up to much in the evenings, but N’s had a sleepy week, flaking out on the sofa quite a lot.
Sunday, N spent a bit of time reading his personalised book from Penwizard that we reviewed. We’ve had many a discussion this week, about N having different colour hair to his 2 friends who feature in the book with him…and yet all 3 have blond hair in the book (they only had a dark brown, so blond was closer to N’s mousy!).
Monday, and I was really pleased with how my Sophie’s Universe crochet-a-long was going. I’m following along quite well until I realised I’d gone wrong somewhere and had one side a lot longer than the other 3. Damn, I had to frog (rip-it) it back so far, I ended up starting from scratch. Annoying, but now I’ve definitely got my colours sorted out because I’ve cut out a couple.
Tuesday I walked back into the living room to find N, and found him asleep on the sofa with his Jesse bear. So cute. He has been really tired this week, so hopefully some lie ins this weekend might help (fat chance!).
Wednesday, N came back from nursery with a valentine’s card he made. In it was a heart balloon, so of course we had to blog it up. Ever since then he’s been having to hold it and hug it all the time.
N’s been getting into YouTube recently, and as well as radio controlled tractor videos, he’s also been watching Thomas the tank engine videos – made up stories and watching the trains go round a track (boring in my opinion). On Thursday his day showed him some music videos, and The Wurzels turned up. So that was 10 minutes of amusing songs to listen to and watch (and the replied to my tweet mentioning the episode!).
After a twitter conversation about food, Monika from Mum on the Brink, mentioned a local food challenge, trying to reduce food miles. I decided to try it with our meal today. While some were from supermarkets, most were British, if not local, and I even managed most of our dessert to be local too.
Saturday had N spending most of the day outside playing or ‘working’. We didn’t have a swimming lesson thanks to half term and being inbetween classes, so I took him fun swimming at the leisure centre in the morning. After lunch he wanted to play outside, then did a bit of metal detecting with my brother, before more playing outside. He’s wanted to get on his bike, but decided that riding it on the mud was a good idea so it’s now filthy. Using his gator was his method of moving it, although I wasn’t sure where he was taking it.
What’s your week been like?
