Project 365 2017 week 11

We’re into week 11 of Project 365, and it’s gone from lovely warm weather to freezing.  A mixed March.  Here’s our week. On Sunday it was raining in the morning. N asked to go to soft play. On a Sunday in the rain.  Thankfully we got there early when it opened and he enjoyed an hour of play before he was bored and wanted to go home.  An expensive hour, but he enjoyed it and doesn’t go very often, so… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 11”

Project 365 2017 week 10

pretty tulips

We’re on to week 10 of Project 365, a photo a day for a year, and this week I’ve been surprised at how many photos I’ve chosen of N. And how many fewer other photos I’ve taken.  What I find is that I take loads on one day, and then very few on other days. On Sunday, N dragged his sleeping bag downstairs to build a den.  I love this photo – I think he was trying to avoid having… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 10”

Project 365 2017 week 9 – It’s springtime

lemon and sugar pancakes

It’s week 9 of Project 365, and it’s been a bit easier taking photos again.  Helped of course, by springtime making itself heard with flowers coming into bloom.  I’m hoping March will be out like a lamb seeing yet more windy, stormy and rainy weather is interspersed with the sunny spells at the start of the month. On Sunday, N had the craft supplies out again. There was glitter everywhere, so I decided to see if I could get any… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 9 – It’s springtime”

Project 365 2017 week 8 – driving and tango

6yo backing in and reversing the quad bike into the garage

This week I wasn’t really feeling the photos for my Project 365.  The weather was mostly rubbish – I’m so pleased our half term was last week and not this week), and we didn’t really do much. Now the mornings and evenings are lighter, I’m hoping I’ll feel  a bit more inspired over the next  couple of weeks. On Sunday I watched N reverse his quad bike into the garage.  I couldn’t believe how much control he had given he’s… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 8 – driving and tango”

Project 365 2017 week 7 – half term fun

It’s onto week 7 of this year’s Project 365 and half term for us. N and I went away for a few days, so there were plentiful photos to choose from. I may have taken 600+ photos across my phone and camera. Oh and not forgetting my GoPro videos (and accidental photos on there!).  They’re all downloaded to my laptop, organised and sorted out, weeding out the rubbish shots, and now just to tag them as I edit for blog… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 7 – half term fun”

Project 365 2017 week 6 – raindrops and blankets

checking out the fish and chip shop

It’s week 6 of Project 365, and things are looking up for photography taking. Yes, leaving work at 5 now sees it still light.  Added to that, N actually let me take some photos so I’ve had quite a lot of him to choose from this week. On Sunday it was a wet day, and I spent a bit of time taking water droplets photos on weeds and the car. I love the car’s reflection in these ones. On Monday… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 6 – raindrops and blankets”

Project 365 2017 week 5 – illness and cats

playing with homemade fans

It’s week 5 of project 365 and I’ve been really rubbish with the camera.  We’ve not been anywhere for weeks (no day trips or venturing out to even the park), since just after Christmas. I’d been hoping to this weekend but even that’s not happened.  Now N’s swimming is just 30 minutes later, it eats into any time we might have for going out for the morning or even the day. I hate arriving places later than opening, having to… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 5 – illness and cats”

Project 365 2017 week 4 – cinema and cats

It’s week 4 of Project 365, and has been a mixed one. From good spirits at turning 6 last weekend, to being sick this weekend and missing his own joint party. Missing it doesn’t seem to be worrying N too much, although at least 1 person isn’t going because they were N’s invite and don’t know anyone else. So hope they still have fun without him. On Sunday, N was out in the garden with his cousin. The 2 of… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 4 – cinema and cats”

Project 365 2017 week 3 sunrises and hygge

Hygge - slippers and blanket

Week 3 and it’s been a big one. It’s been a birthday week for N. Along with about 20 million other people we know it seems, as there’s been parties galore, presents flying around and chocolates being handed out at school. On Sunday we didn’t do much. The weather wasn’t great and N didn’t want to do much, so I vegetated keeping warm under my cosy blanket. Monday was school, and once back home, N wanted a hot chocolate with… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 3 sunrises and hygge”

Project 365 2017 week 2 hot chocolate and reading books

unusual orange flowers

This year feels like it’s been going on a while now, but we’re only in week 2.  The weather’s been miserable and I’ve been relying on my phone camera. That’s if I even remember to take photos.  I was struggling this week to remember which is ridiculous given this is my 4th year! On Sunday, we had to do N’s reading. He only had 1 book thankfully, but had put it off until Sunday which meant he had to read… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 2 hot chocolate and reading books”
