Onto week 17 of Project 365, and it’s been a sporadic photo week. I seemed to take a lot of photos of traffic jams…being irate at temporary traffic lights near work, when for the 2 weeks there were none working the traffic flowed the best ever.
On Sunday, I dragged N off down a public footpath alongside a field so I could take some photos of the rape seed crops. It was a great chance to play with my camera settings, as well as a nice walk and exploration of somewhere new.
Monday was a normal working day, but afterwards we headed out to play in the garden. We got out the boomerang we’d been sent and had a good go and trying to get it to return to us. The information said it had a 15-20 foot range, but it didn’t take much to get it further than that.
Tuesday we had to do a practice run using the Trunki Boostapak we’ve been sent for review. The next day my brother was going to pick N up from nursery because I had a rare meal out, so he would be using the Boostapak. All I can say is the 2 of us couldn’t work out how to get the shoulder strap bit right, so I ended up having to YouTube it! Oops. N loved it though.
Wednesday was one of those days where the pre-nursery and work time was manic. I was running round trying to tidy up, organise everything and make sure N was being looked after nursery, and N wasn’t helping at all. He just decided to stand there and tell me everything that he could spot on his old Gruffalo trail booklet.
Thursday excitement was the arrival of the tent I’d bought from Outdoor Gear in readiness of our summer camping break. He’s already run off with the mallet. My next concern is to track down where my sleeping bag is…under stairs cupboard I’m hoping, because it’s not in the boot of my car.
Friday after nursery N didn’t want to come and see the nurse with me for my INR test so he stayed with Granny. By the time I came back, he was out on the farm with his Gramps and waiting to go on the tractor with his dad. He didn’t want to come back in with me. I love how little he looks in this photo, even though he usually looks like he’s really growing up lots.
Saturday I was gutted to be missing Blogcamp. I’d put my name on the wait list very late (ie this week) after FunFest had been postponed, was lucky enough to get offered a space the day before. Annoyingly we had to go and sort out my Nan’s banks now that my brother and I are now her deputies. Even worse was that the one we’d struggled to get the appointment for, didn’t even book us in with the right person we needed to see, so we’ll have to wait another 2 weeks for them to be available. If they’d got that right I’d have been able to go. Never mind. Instead I got to sit and wait in 2 different banks, and N (and his uncle) got to play with the toys.
