The year’s moving on frantically and we’re in week 35 of Project 365, a photo every day. This week’s been busy, being only a part week in work thanks to holiday time.
On Sunday, we went to meet up with a couple of my old school friends. One brought along her kids and husband too, and we had a lovely walk round and explore at Butterfly World Project near St Albans. This was one of the butterflies in the tropical house. Beautiful colours, but a dull brown when its wings were closed. This one did look a bit ratty on the wings though!
Monday I spent some time outside with my new macro lens. It’s taking some time to get used to (especially when you’ve got a phone that takes great shots anyway), but I’m loving some of the photos I’m getting
Tuesday I tried to get N to draw a thank you card for nursery for his last day. Let’s just say, he’s not good at or keen to do as requested if it doesn’t fit with his own expectations of timings. He did one card – just about with his name in, and a picture of a dress. No, I don’t know why either.
Wednesday was N’s last day at nursery. He wasn’t impressed that I wanted a photo of him, but he played ball…just about. He does make me laugh though. Any day he has to wear trousers, he’s started moaning ‘they’re too long for me’. Of course they’re not. Most of his trousers are now more short than the right length. I think it’s because he’s had shorts on most of the time, but doesn’t bode well for his school trousers which I’ve not taken up.
Thursday we went to London for the day to see The Gruffalo show. Beforehand we went up to see Buckingham Palace, and walk through St James’ Park. This was the view across the lake of the London Eye.
On Friday we went out for the day. On coming home N decided that he needed to clean and ‘fix’ his tractor. With his top off, obviously.
On Saturday, a local tennis club held a kids open afternoon. I can’t say it was a particular success…not helped by N spotting the playground as we drove in. Of course I couldn’t make him stay and try and play tennis, so the park it was.
