Project 365 2017 week 24

ready to go on the quadbike

We’re rapidly approaching midsummer and halfway through this year’s Project 365. And unbelievably only a few weeks left of year 1 at school.  Here’s this week’s photos. On Sunday, N was out on the farm as usual, but came back in the afternoon to have a ride on his quad bike, along with his cousin. I’m pleased to see the helmet’s making more of an appearance. On Monday N came back from tennis (hence the oversized school PE shorts), and… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 24”

Project 365 2017 week 23

Lego card sorting out

It’s week 23 of Project 365.  Despite it being summer the weather has been so up and down, I’ve not been out much during the week to take photos.  Apart from flowers, I’m not finding much inspiration. The whole instagram engagement thing has put me off a bit – just not feeling like taking photos, and then not having any I want to share. Plus of course, when engagement drops to half, it feels like there’s no point sharing them.… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 23”

Project 365 2017 week 22

It’s been a lovely half term week.  I’ve had to work 2 days of it, but the rest of the week we’ve tried to make the most of the wonderful weather.  Here’s this week’s Project 365, wek 23. On Sunday, we drove up to Chester. My plan was to get up there early and look round. We stayed in a hotel, then the next day was planning to go to Manchester to see my best-friend. I’ve not been to Chester… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 22”

Project 365 2017 week 21

summer birkenstocks and picnic blankets

It’s week 21 of Project 365, and it’s been wonderful weather all week.  Unfortunately work got in the way of enjoying it, but we have been making the most of it in the evenings. Here’s this week’s photos: On Sunday, despite the warm weather N insisted on wearing his jumper.  His favourite activity this week has been weeding each evening. Our garden does need a lot of weeding, but we weren’t making a dent in it. It was lovely to… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 21”

Project 365 2017 week 20

peach gerbera

Week 20 of project 365, and I’ve been taking really random shots this week, mainly because I’ve known that I’ve not got interesting things happening to take photos of. On Sunday we went to St Nicholas Park in Warwick and had a great time exploring and playing. This was N on the net swing thing – although as soon as he got on it, other kids turned up to climb on and push him which he didn’t like so he… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 20”

Project 365 2017 week 19 – Strictly Banbury

vintage cars in town

We’re onto week 19 of Project 365, and I’ve taken hardly any photos of N this week. Oops. Thankfully weird single photo choice of food and flowers have come to the rescue.  I’ve not been taking my millions of photos, but on quiet days have chosen to take specific photos for Project 365. On Sunday I sat down with this little chocolate crunch ‘donut’ from Costa I’d grabbed as a treat. It was time to read my National Trust booklet… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 19 – Strictly Banbury”

Project 365 2017 week 18

cousins on swings

We’re onto week 18 of Project 365, a photo a day for a year.  I did have a couple of days where I snapped only 1 random photo that day, because on work days I’m just not feeling very inspired at the moment. Work was manic this week – trying to get a report signed off when you’ve lots of different people inputting late on, isn’t really happening smoothly.  Plus frantically trying to organise training sessions when my trainer is… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 18”

Project 365 2017 week 17

pulling faces

I thought this week’s Project 365 would be lacking photo options because several days I didn’t recall taking any. I’m finding it seems to be same old, same old things I’m seeing, so I’m not feeling that inspired.  But I managed the week, so on to next weeks. I did get my camera back from its repairs, and all is sorted.  I’m happy to have it back, although it does feel weird having a big camera back in my hands… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 17”

Project 365 2017 week 16 – Easter break

on the promenade at Cromer

It’s week 16 of 2017’s Project 365, photo a day for a year.  This week included our Easter break – I was off work this week too.  So I took N away for a few days. We had a nice break, although he wasn’t well – hot and cold, and had a headache, which keeps coming back.  So it’s certainly dragging on.  I’m just hoping after a relaxing weekend he’ll be ok to go back to school. He’s still not read… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 16 – Easter break”

Project 365 2017 week 15 – eggs and horses

jumping logs on the woodland walk at Upton House

It’s onto week 15 of project 365 and the final run up to Easter.  We’ve only had 1 week of holidays this week so I’m hoping that lots of children are back to school next week and we’ll have some quiet-ish time away without insane traffic on the roads. On Sunday I finally got round to making my mediterranean courgettes side – I’ve had the post written for ages, but whenever I’ve made it before I’ve never managed to get… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 15 – eggs and horses”
