Only one week to go until the end of Project 365, a photo a day for a year.
On Sunday, we put up the tree. We had the Christmas music playing, the lights twinkling and this Glade Christmas candle going. I don’t often use candles but I couldn’t resist the smell of this one. N’s interest does mean I need to put it well up out of the way.
On Monday I did a quick nip to the shops at lunchtime, and spotted these cool bauble sticks at the florist’s stand. I’m not sure what you’d use them for, but they looked great in the bucket.
N’s been waking up earlier than ever. 4.20 one morning, around 5am the rest of the time. Argghhh. On Tuesday though I woke up to see N in bed with me. He then slept in until 7.20. I couldn’t believe it. Shame he couldn’t do 7 every day.
On Wednesday it was our team’s Christmas lunch. 16 of us went to the Thai Orchid restaurant for their lunchtime buffet. I do enjoy thai food and that restaurant is brilliant. I’m not sure that I’m good with buffets on the whole. I prefer chicken or beef, but many of the dishes I love were duck or fish which I’m not keen on or dislike. There were so many desserts though. I had to try a bit of each, but the rest of the day I was so stuffed, I could hardly move. It wasn’t a diet day!
On Thursday I stuck my head in N’s room to check what state it was in, to find this scene set up. Every single teddy set up either tucked up under a duvet or on the blanket.
There’ve been some great sunrises this week again, and on Friday I looked out to get some photos and spotted one of the farm cats walking the fences. It didn’t stay long, escaping into next door’s garden when he heard me open the window.
I’d order a couple of pairs of trainers online in the sale for N to try. He’s weird with trainers and always says they’re too tight. So on Saturday we had to return the ones I’d ordered and find some that he was happy with. Of course, the shops didn’t have much in his size, so a choice of 3 and the ones that fit best (and that I agreed to – no dinosaur pictures all over) were the ones not in the sale. Grr, I do begrudge paying full price for a pair of trainers that will get wrecked really quickly.
As soon as the shop worker left the room, N was off sprawling all over the seats, trying to escape into the middle of them. Typical boy destroying the place.
