It’s week 50 of Project 365, and my photos this week are a game of two halves. The first half of the week is random photos, with the last few being N. It really shows the split of most weeks, where the first half he’s in morning and afterschool club, while at the end of the week he’s at home for longer before and after school.
On Sunday I went to National Trust’s Upton House for a wander round, and on returning bumped into N on the way back from a walk with his Gran and our dog. We spotted this final beautiful rose left in the garden hanging on for dear life.
On Monday it was our reception mums meal out at a local pub. The menu hadn’t been my favourite choices by any means, but it was all delicious, and the soup just looked so pretty.
Wednesday saw yet another gorgeous sunrise. I even managed to catch the crescent moon in the sky at the same time.
On Wednesday I was on a mission to do jobs in town at lunch time, and thought the town hall clock looked really striking against the grey sky.
On Thursday I picked N up from after school club. He was fairly quiet there, but I get him home and he turns into a bit of a loony. He likes to shut himself in the kitchen corner cupboard – it’s so noticeable to see how much he’s grown since he started doing it.
It’s definitely getting to the end of the full term at school. N’s fallen asleep 3 times on the sofa this week before bedtime, and it’s not helping with the early mornings. I think we’ve had 4.20 (OH heard him going downstairs and getting his advent chocolate), and 5am several times. He really needs to sleep in til normal time, but he just ignores the gro clock. This time was on Friday. We were going out, and he took himself to bed even before 7pm when his uncle was coming to babysit. Note how he didn’t let go of his fan he’d made.
On Saturday it was the last swimming session of the year. They always have a fun swim session with lots of floats, body boards, woggles and balls but because it was Christmas they had the Christmas lights on and Christmas music. N spends most of his time on a frog float, but he and his friend P do enjoy repeatedly jumping in as well. He always moans that he hates swimming lessons. That doesn’t ring true when I see him grinning away in lessons and doing exactly what the teacher says. But I think it’s that he doesn’t like having teachers tell him what he should be doing. He prefers to do things when he wants too. Luckily he’s obedient too and understands that he’ll have lessons until he’s a strong enough swimming not to need to.
