We’re onto week 39 of Project 365. The nights are drawing in – dark by 7ish, and I’ve hardly taken any photos of N this week thanks to 2 weekends of blog conferences.
On Sunday, I was at Blog On Xmas in Manchester. I went up on the Saturday afternoon for the launch party, the conference was the Sunday and back in the evening. Thankfully the 2.5 hour journey wasn’t too bad. It made me laugh seeing my car information. My car is all wheel drive and has worse fuel economy than they claim by a long way disappointingly. I’d reset the meter by accident, filled the tank with diesel before going, then thanks to 50 mph up most of the M6 and it was telling me I would be able to get over 800 miles in the tank. At one point it had said 1000! I think going back to the normal 580-600 is more realistic. It was nice to dream though.
On Monday there wasn’t much going on. Just a last few shots at the roses over at the farm.
On Tuesday it was more chilling out in the evenings. I try and get N to do his homework as soon as he gets home but he’s usually over at the farm and I have to drag him away moaning.
On Wednesday I went dancing to the monthly Oxford freestyle in the town hall. Just like the old days before I had N, my friend and I decided to head to the pub for a brief drink afterwards with the others. It was lovely to be back there socialising outside of dancing, however brief. Although a midnight home arrival on a work night wasn’t the best.
On Thursday I grabbed this photo. N was showing me his conkers he’d collected from school. I think it makes him look so little again.
On Friday I took the afternoon off work and headed into London for BML17 blogging conference. I went on my first proper instawalk, and we ended with a sunset over South Bank.
On Saturday it was the actual conference. It was very different to previous years, and while I went to 1 excellent session on SEO, and an interesting one on Pinterest, we walked out of one, and the rest of the day was spent chatting and painting pretty birds as the rest was just not relevant.
