Happy new year, and welcoming to the new year of Project 365. If you’re new it, it’s a photo a day for a year (or 4 years in my case). I can’t believe I’ve managed it all that time, but I love to see what we get up to over the weeks, and it’s a great chance to take different photos and share them. You can join in on your blog or if you don’t have one via instagram using and link up your weekly round up on there or a favourite from the week, There’s also a Facebook group if you search for it.
So onto week 1 of project 365 for 2017.
New Year’s Day saw us at our friends’ house again – with another 25 people. It’s always a great day, a chance for lots of our farming friends and their children to get together. N was pleased that the old farming toys got brought out for the three five year olds to play with, while the older boys spent most of the afternoon out in the pouring rain.
On Monday, I caught N sitting on the radiator in the back room. It’s meant to be dining room but has never been used as one because we use the kitchen. It means it’s full of N’s toys hence the mess.
On Tuesday I nipped out to the village shop and spotted a few of the houses still had wreaths up. This house is gorgeous so I couldn’t resist snapping a photo.
On Wednesday this was the only photo I took. He’d not crept into bed with me for a month, but was there when I went to bed. Thankfully it was a one night only thing.
On Thursday I bought a new bag. I’d spotted it in Matalan a few weeks ago, and when I popped in I spotted it was in the sale for only £7. I was going to cut off the front 2 tassels, but it’s fine when using it. The strap’s a bit short for my liking, but for that price, I can replace my old gorgeous tan bag which is now navy on the back from rubbing against my jeans for 2 years!
On Friday the rain started. I’d gone out at lunchtime to pick up some tickets I’d ordered at the local arts centre for the OH’s birthday on Saturday, but the theatre was shut for the week after new year. Very annoying, I had to write a note/cut out a picture of the show for the OH’s card in the interim. I wore my new boots for the first time. I spotted them still in M&S in my size (I’ve already got a black pair), but my tan boots have given up the ghost so it was perfect timing.
On Saturday, I had my first Cadbury Mini Eggs of the year. I know it’s only just the new year, but I do like them, and it’s my last chance before my diet starts again on Monday.
