It’s week 2 of Project 366, ans already I’m back into the looking out for photography opportunities, although it is hard work when the weather’s rubbish. Here’s this week’s photos.
On Sunday we went to a different part in town. N had a great time cycling round it. He loved the swings and is getting a bit more daring nowadays wanting to go higher. I think his legs look really long here, but on measuring he doesn’t seem to have grown any. Just slimmed down ready for the next spurt I suppose.
On Monday after school, N was straight in to the kitchen, grabbing some paper and my very old nature books so he could copy some of the words. He didn’t get much further than one letter, but I love how he’s not bothered that these books really are old fashioned and how keen he is to carry on doing writing after school. Shame he’s not as enthusiastic about reading the reading books!
My brother only lives a couple of miles away, so he often pops in. On Tuesday it was to show the OH his new wellies. A very important topic of conversation when you’re a farmer or metal detectorist who ends up with split boots. Of course N had to try them on although no brilliant photos because he wouldn’t stand still enough.
This week like the whole of the autumn and winter we’ve had lovely sunrises (and I’m sure sunsets, although I don’t see a lot of those while in work), and I had to take some photos on the commute to work on Tuesday. It really looked like there was a massive fire on the horizon.
To get out and make some effort at exercise I try and go out at lunchtimes for a quick walk round town. On Thursday the market was in town, and I couldn’t resist a picture of all the fruit laid out in their bowls.
On Fridays, N tends to be exhausted. He’s pretty much falling asleep on the sofa anytime after 6pm, although he’d deny it. He’s also taken to snuggling up with his taggy blanket again. Not too bad, but having the blanket is pretty much his trigger for sucking his thumb so I’m going to have to tell him it’s falling apart too badly (it is!) and that it needs to be thrown out.
Usually in January we have a mammoth round of NCT birthdays, but this year people have either not had parties or have just invited school friends. On Saturday was the first and probably the last this year apart from N’s own. It was a little girl’s birthday with a Frozen theme. It was touch and go whether N would be there as he really hates Frozen for some reason. I don’t think he’s even seen the film but maybe he’s just sick of the music after it was played a lot at his nurseries last year. He was happy enough that his best friend was there and that the food was good. By the end he was hovering around things and joining in with the usual play. The cakes were amazing – the kids all had a cupcake in, there was an amazing Frozen castle cake…although N was most put out that the cake in the party bag wasn’t the castle, but was a totally different cupcake.
