Only a few weeks of 2017 left for Project 365. This is my 4th year of doing it, and while I love it, I feel like I’m getting a bit bored. It’s also a rush getting it done at weekends, when for the past 2 years I’ve been saying I’ll cut down on blog posts each week. So I’ll have to see how I feel into next year.
Here’s week 48.
On Sunday, we went to Waddesdon Manor to check out the Christmas displays. We had a lovely day, although we still didn’t make it to stay until the huge light display. N did enjoy running round the gardens taking photos. I’ve not had a look at his camera yet to see what the photos came out like.
On Monday, it was a work day and I was parked in the car park round the corner from the office. I have a real irritation with car wash people. The ones who left this leaflet obviously had much longer arms than me. They put it right in the middle of the windscreen under the wipers (which I struggled to lean over and lift without getting muddy from my car (my car’s always dirty leaving in th emiddle of nowhere), and because it was damp it had stuck to the windscreen and I couldn’t get it off. I wish they wouldn’t flyer people’s cars, and as for the ones in our Sainsbury’s approaching people as they get out of cars. I hate it.
On Tuesday, it was hama beads time. Since Christmas last year, N’s got through nearly 3000 beads plus some extras. We permanently seem to have a creation on the side waiting to be ironed.
This week we’ve had proper wintry days, great sunrises and beautiful blue skies. This was Wednesday before work.
On Thursday I had to nip back to the village to have my INR test done. It was a beautiful day again, and the houses looked so pretty against it.
On Friday, it was another tennis lesson. N goes through phases of enjoying it and this week was a good one. I thought he looked really sporty here complete with his wristband! He never stays still as soon as he walks through the sports hall door, hence the bad photo.
On Saturday it was a weird day. N’s swimming class was combined with the one below his because there was a teacher shortage, so his group got to show how to do it to the level 2 children. The OH had a migraine all day so we were relegated to the back room and kitchen for most of the day. We played games, did puzzles, N took the pup for a walk with my brother, and we just mooched all day. N spent most of the day in his new santa and elf hats, and his new pair of boots we got him that morning.
