We’re onto week 19 of Project 365, and I’ve taken hardly any photos of N this week. Oops. Thankfully weird single photo choice of food and flowers have come to the rescue. I’ve not been taking my millions of photos, but on quiet days have chosen to take specific photos for Project 365.
On Sunday I sat down with this little chocolate crunch ‘donut’ from Costa I’d grabbed as a treat. It was time to read my National Trust booklet they’d sent. I’ve already booked for Feast again – hopefully this year N will decide to actually come with me because it was really good last time.
On Monday, I only took a couple of flower photos. I’m on a mission o find some peonies but our flower stand doesn’t sell them, and the only ones I’ve spotted so far is in an expensive bouquet from M&S. I did spot these strange ‘maze’ like flowers though.
On Tuesday I noticed quite a few of my calendulas had come up. Not in the wall, but next to it in the patio slabs. I always find this colour particularly beautiful.
On Wednesday, I actually had a lunch break at work and nipped into town. This vehicle was parked alongside the motor bike parking.
On Thursday, N had his first bit of homework other than reading, for ages. They’ve been doing fractions – 1/2s and 1/4s. He whizzed through it, but I wasn’t sure he was really understanding a written fraction. But it turns out he did as we had a bit of a test the next day through general conversation. His maths continues to be his strong point.
On Friday, N’s laces were too long and I realised he’d managed to break through one of the eyelets. His trainers were only 4 days old so I wasn’t impressed, especially not as they were Skechers, so not a cheapo pair. We’ve had to readjust them and use the top holes, although the one set of laces is still a bit long when tied.
On Saturday, I went to the local theatre to watch Strictly Banbury. It’s done for charity and 2 of my friends were taking part as the ‘celebs’. It was a lovely thing to watch, although it did drag on half hour longer than they stated for the matinee performance (glad N didn’t come in the end because he wouldn’t have sat through 2 hours of dancing). Neither of my friends made the ‘final’ round but I expect they get their turn on either the Saturday or Sunday evening. This photo was the demo from a previous contestant and her ‘pro’ (now partner) doing the jive.
