We’re definitely now into the final stretch of Project 365, and we’ve passed week 49.  I’ve been trying out my new camera, although I’m still waiting on a bag (on my Christmas list), so I’m only really using it at home at the moment.  It means N is probably getting a bit bored of having his photo taken.

But onto this week of photos

Sunday, N and I went to National Trust’s Canons Ashby.  It was a fleeting visit, but I love N in a beanie hat, so I’m pleased that it’s winter again and he’ll be looking cute in them.  He did have a bit of a bruise that day from crashing heads with a friend at nursery a couple of days before.

Monday I struggled a bit with taking photos (or a lack of them), but this was another camera practice one. I love how the new camera is so much better in low light, a saviour in the winter months.  It was a normal evening, N having got back from nursery but still wanting more food!

N’s just as big a fan of my nutribullet as I am, and on Tuesday he already had it out of the cupboard before I had chance to get it out.  I can’t eat many greens due to my warfarin, but thought I’d try carrot instead.  I think I’ve found a drink that N won’t drink but he gave it a good attempt.

Wednesday, my brother popped over to sort out some legal forms.  I think over the last year we’ve become pros at completing HMRC forms – want to know about probate, power of attorney or court of protection forms, we’re your people! Hopefully next year will be a lot less stressful than the last 2.  Now it’s winter, N has been getting out his toys again, so uncle and nephew had to build a suitable track.

Thursday N’s nursery school had their annual early closing due to the village OAPs having their Christmas lunch.  I took the afternoon off work, and arranged for us to pop over and see a uni friend. We’ve not seen them for a while, but the boys did what young children do, and just got on with playing after they’d got over their initial nerves.  Nothing like sitting down for a nice genteel snack.

Friday I’d booked a day off work.  I got a bit confused because initially I had planned to do some Christmas shopping, but then realised I’d booked N off nursery and had told him we’d go ice skating.  So we had a morning at Millets Farm checking out their Christmas decorations, doing some ice skating and then catching up on some Christmas card writing. N came and sat with me while I wrote them and practised his letters and colouring for ages. He’s still a long way off, not helped by him thinking he can’t do it, so I’m pleased that he chooses to pick up a pen and try to write of his own accord.

N loves juice although he’s obviously not that keen on it being watered down because he usually leaves that.  But I turn my back, and he’s snaffled some of mine.  Saturday, I was really lazy about getting up out of bed…nothing like lazy reading while N is off downstairs entertaining himself. By the time I had been down and upstairs like a yoyo getting things he wanted, and then him helping himself to snacks and leftover lunch from our lunch the day before, he must have eaten lots for ‘breakfast’. However I came downstairs, got my own breakfast, and next thing he was getting a whole pepper out of the fridge to have more food.  Needless to say he didn’t have more than a few strips but the photo made me chuckle.  We did jobs in town in the morning, then he had the first of the NCT 4th birthday parties.

So it’s another week over and out and onto week 50.  That means I need to get a bit more organised about Christmas!

    • Err, yes it has. Nothing like making it over to one side. A few days later and it’s still out – we’ve used the box to put burning scraps and paper in for the wood burner, so I think it’ll be out for a while.
