We’re now on week 48 and racing towards the finish line of Project 365 for 2015. N’s on countdown to Christmas and his birthday, so it’s hard not to notice time racing by. It’s been a fairly quiet week although I’m not thinking a bit more about getting organised for Christmas.
On Sunday, N spent some time out metal detecting with his uncle. He loves getting the spade out and the mini detector, but he does get a bit bored after about 30 minutes.
On Monday, I snapped this sunrise outside the bedroom window. I have to stick my hand out the window with my phone because the chest of drawers is in the way. It’s worth it though – the other rooms don’t have as good a direction or view from them.
On Tuesday I went for a lunchtime walk round town. I like to get out from work for a bit, otherwise I tend to get an afternoon headache. The decorations in the shopping centre were up, although the outdoor town lights won’t go on until the last Sunday in November.
On Wednesday it was back to bad traffic near work. Before half term, the traffic hadn’t been anything like this, but since then, it’s been horrific with no explanation why. Although it’s not helping with the weather, the new retail park, and soon to be built additional houses.
On Thursday it was my nan’s funeral. My brother and I headed down there for the service. Considering we had no idea of her favourite hymns, people to invite or prayer choices, I think we managed to put together a reasonable service, and several people mentioned it was a nice service. Afterwards, I didn’t have enough time to go back to work, so I went to the new retail park to quickly check out the new Primark, and grab a hot chocolate in Starbucks. It’s nice to have a different coffee shop there vs the other brands in town.
On Friday, N decided he was going to test me on his phonics. So far he’s learn 14, so still some way to go. He’s ok at the sounds, but not too good on knowing the letters to write down.
Saturday was a day of stuff. Swimming lesson, then a playdate with his best friend while we discussed their joint birthday party. Followed by a frantic rush into town to pick up some material and a mask for a work photo shoot. It was all a bit rushed, but lovely to sit down and have a chat with a friend. N’s been making the most of having out his old tractors, and was building a road with a jenga type game pieces.
My photos this week have been severely lacking so hopefully next week they will be better and more frequent.
