We’re up to week 14 of Project 366 and I’ve been close to missing my photo on a couple of days. I find if there’s nothing at lunchtime spotted, then quite often I’ll forget after work as well. So it’s great we’ve got longer days to be able to get out and have some more light for those last minute photos.
Onto the week in photos:
N has 10 sheep, and most have now had their lambs. On Sunday the first ewe and lamb were put in the paddock behind our garden, so each evening N will be going out to check they’re ok. Annoyingly they’ve stuck just down the hill slope as far from the house as possible so I’ve not been out to take photos, but I did get this one of N going out to feed them with his dad that first misty morning they were out there.
N loves our piano and really has a good think and listen before he decides to play certain notes. He won’t entertain the thought of having me teach him anything. As with most things he enjoys doing it but isn’t keen on lessons. On Monday I found him ‘playing’ the piano by reading one of his school books. He told me ‘I’m getting the music from my book’. Sweet, but a little loopy.
Tuesday was one of my last minute photos. Taken en route to dancing, the sunset was really pretty. Not swamping the sky but just a few beautiful clouds and the wonderful twilight blue colour of the sky.
On Wednesday I was stumped for photos but then on the way home from work, got stuck in traffic just outside the library. I looked up and noticed the pretty mosaic style windows.
I have to go and have a prick blood test regularly, and on Thursday it was my latest one and I took N along having just picked him up from holiday club. N does eat a lot but he’s just not stopped eating the last few days including just after he’d had his tea like Thursday. He was trying out some new Pulsin’ snack bars we’ve been sent to review. Afterwards I then measured him…he’s grown 5cm since January so I’m not surprised he’s been hungry. Maybe a growth spurt explains the tired legs he’s been moaning about a lot recently too.
On Friday I picked N up at normal school pick up time from holiday club and we bumped into his uncle and cousins letting another sheep and lamb into the paddock. Of course N wanted his cousin to play at home with him, so they spent a couple of hours trying to work out which activities or toys they both wanted to play with. Playdoh went down well and I managed to grab this shot of them both concentration on making ‘snakes’.
The last weekend of the Easter holidays, and I wanted us to do something interesting. We ended up going to Twycross Zoo, somewhere I’d not been before. N spent most of the time asking to go in soft play which I refused him, but we did see these cute monkeys have a monkey hug. It was like one was comforting the other or protecting it from us all watching.
