The first week of the Easter holidays for us and I had a few days off to spend with N. We did have a last minute short break to Eastbourne after the bank holiday. It was lovely to get away although the OH was still working so it was just N and myself.
Here’s our week 13 for Project 366, photo a day for a year.
On Easter Sunday, N spent a lot of time playing with his wooden farm set. He set it up exactly like the picture on the box, added his Britains farm vehicles and has dipped in and out over the week. It’s lovely to see him playing with toys rather than wanting to watch TV or YouTube all the time.
On Monday we didn’t do much. I booked our holiday very late on Sunday evening, and spent Monday packing and planning for holiday, while N went out on the farm with his dad. In the evening I went dancing to a different venue in Leamington Spa – a freestyle modern jive event held in the Pump Rooms. A lovely venue, but very hot with a slippy floor. It didn’t set my world on fire as an event but it was nice to dance with different people.
On Tuesday we headed off to Eastbourne for our couple of days break. We stayed in a hotel but ate out each night…the jacket and ties must be worn by men dinner dress code wasn’t my thing especially as I only took jeans with me. So we ended up in an Italian restaurant and of course my diet went out of the window. I had this delicious starter of mozzarella, tomato and basil salad. Yum.
On Wednesday we had a busy day. I always think it’s the norm to cram in lots, but never really remember that N’s only young and that really he’s like his dad and just wants a sleep in the afternoons when he’s on holiday (waste of time in my eyes!). This photo was taken at Michelham Priory where N was moaning and going on about sore throat, sore ears, and how he wanted to go home (back to the hotel). He was really whiny that day even though he spent the morning at an adventura park with another 5 year old.
On Thursday we were back home again after our fleeting trip. Arriving home and then getting a sunset like this was pleasing to the eye. I feel like I’ve missed all the sunsets and sunrises now the clocks have changed so I’ll be keeping a watch out for more.
On Friday I was back at work while N spent the day on the farm with his dad. He mainly just potters around with him, and helps him out with ‘work’. For tea N wanted to help make the salad so he did all the chopping of the peppers and cucumber (the size and shape of the latter’s slices left a lot to be desired).
On Saturday, I’d agreed that I would take N swimming at the leisure centre in town. His normal swimming lessons are off for nearly 4 weeks, so it’s hard to keep it going while we’re off. We don’t travel light while swimming, taking a float and swimming woggle with us, although he could have made done just with the float.
