It’s a double week this time for my Project 365, into week 12 and 13.
On Sunday, we went for a spring walk in the park so N could scoot. I was disappointed to only see one tree with blossom. Instead there was a lot more graffiti. It’s a shame our town don’t have more talented graffiti artists, because it just looks scruffy rather than artistic.
On Monday, N brought another reading book series home. They do like to swap around a lot at school. I’m getting confused now because I’m not sure how they teach some of the sounds that are in these books, plus I’m not sure if he’s even learnt them yet.
N has got into smoothies again so Tuesday I agreed he could have one to use up the milk and raspberries. This one was banana, raspberries, blackberries and milk.
On Wednesday I spotted this rainbow.
On Thursday it was time to finally throw out the tulips I’d bought the week before. The still made for some beautiful photos.
On Friday it was tennis again and they had a different coach. Their usual one is a little old for a sports coach, and had been ill for a while. The different coach turned out to be he coach who’d taught me squash back nearly 30 years ago! This view of them lined up doing volleys makes me laugh.
On Saturday it was a lovely day and we spend some time out in the garden. N decided to make a nest. A week later and it’ still there.
On Sunday it was mother’s day. N and I went out for the morning and lunch to Stratford. I was given 3 homemade cards, and a body and hand lotion which N keeps insisting I keep in the bathroom to use…I don’t use body lotion and am fussy about hand lotion which I rarely use either. Oops. These were the mother-in-law’s flowers.
On Monday, N was back to smoothies again. Or milkshakes. This one was kiwi and banana and was surprisingly delicious.
I obviously didn’t take many photos this week (not helped by my camera being sent off to hopefully fix the connection between the shutter dial and screen) because on Tuesday, I found this one of N making a milkshake.
On Wednesday I flunked my diet (and the rest of the week). I had breakfast tortilla ‘baskets’for tea – scrambled egg, hams, spring onion and peppers, plus some cheese. It was really tasty.
On Thursday it was time for a quick play in the garden. Or really, I asked N to clear up the swingball poles which had been used for football goalposts. His version of clearing them up was to throw them…they didn’t make it anywhere near the storage box of course.
On Friday it was the school Easter service at the church. I was working so couldn’t make it, but arrived to pick N up from the church to heart that his class were going to repeat their performance of ‘I’m a spring chicken’. It was very sweet, but mostly because the whole school including the year 5s and 6s were joining in with the chorus and the actions. It was so funny to see.
On Saturday it was a day of chores. Annoyingly N wanted to go out on the farm after swimming, but apart from a bit in the morning when I went food shopping, he stayed in. He wasn’t happy, but he gets bored on the tractor and the job for today was ploughing. This is great for me, because I can presume in future that we’ll be going out somewhere for the day. Plans needed for tomorrow immediately. We did get outside in the garden for a bit. N decided to retrieve this feathers which had been left the other night. The feather clump explains the late night shrieks and fight between a couple of the cats the other night.
