It’s week 23 of Project 365. Despite it being summer the weather has been so up and down, I’ve not been out much during the week to take photos. Apart from flowers, I’m not finding much inspiration.
The whole instagram engagement thing has put me off a bit – just not feeling like taking photos, and then not having any I want to share. Plus of course, when engagement drops to half, it feels like there’s no point sharing them. My followers have been going up and down like a yoyo, and I’ve been around the same number for the last 4 weeks which is unheard of.
But I’ve managed to cobble together photos for each day this week – just about.
On Sunday I pottered around at home. N and his cousin spent some time outside on his quad bike. Finally the helmet has been located and is being worn when riding it. This was taken through the (obviously needing a clean) patio doors!
On Monday, it was more Horrible Histories. N does watch too much tv for my liking mainly because he wakes so early in the morning before I’m up so I can’t stop him. He’s obsessed with Horrible Histories, so at least it’s educational.
On Tuesday N actually started putting his cards into his Lego album. We’ve now only got 15 to get, so we’re on a mission. I put out a call at work, and people have been giving us some of their cards, plus we’ve been doing some swaps. It seems 6 year olds don’t grasp the swapping thing when they take them into school. One boy has completed his album but won’t give away any of the duplicates he’s been flashing around at school.
On Wednesday I was back at dancing again. Mostly I’m now doing west coast swing on a Tuesday night, but will swap to Ceroc for the monthly freestyles. They’re always good because the best dancers in the area make the effort to go, and the venue is amazing.
On Thursday it was cake heaven at work. One of my good friends brought in cakes for her birthday and someone else made one for her too.
On Friday, I didn’t take many photos, but when I took N over to the farm to find his dad, I noticed the yellow roses were out against the barn and had to take a photo. Shame they mostly looked like they were over – already. It feels like they’ve only really just started blooming.
On Saturday it was the normal stuff that had to get done. For N’s swimming lesson they had a different teacher because theirs was off doing an outdoor competition swim somewhere. The replacement was very good as well, but it was a lot more chattier than normal. It’s amazing how N’s coming on with his front crawl given he’s only lost his swim belt a few weeks ago. This was breakfast – one of the tastiest is Kelloggs Cornflakes, with berries and really cold milk.
