Project 366 2016 week 39 – cakes and christmassy treats

This week’s Project 366 is onto week 39.  And there’s not long to go before the end of the year – arrgghhh.  Here’s this week’s photos.

On Sunday, N offered to ‘cut’ his dad’s hair.  N was happy role playing, and the OH was pleased because he had a head massage. Shudder, I can’t think of anything worse.

On Monday I found this happening.  A teddy bear blanket roll.  N had laid out his blanket, put all his soft toys on it and made a roll of them before dragging it around the house.  I’ve no idea what the reason was for doing so.

On Tuesday, I noticed N’s dwarf runner beans had some flowers on.  I’ve done nothing with it since it was put outside, and it’s been chomped away and there’s no beans on it. Not a very good end considering it grew so well from beans, but I’m impressed it grew so well.

On Wednesday, we checked the horse chestnut tree in the garden for conkers.  There were none on the ground, and don’t look like there’s many in the tree  But there were plenty of apples, so N chose some for snacks for himself.

On Thursday I had a flexi afternoon off work. I spent a couple of hours nipping to the shops and then doing some blogging in a coffee shop before getting to pick N up from school for the first time on a Thursday. We then spent the afternoon making cupcakes for the school’s Macmillan coffee morning on Friday.

On Friday N had tennis club again.  I’ve been astonished that so far the weather’s been dry for it 3 out of 3 times.  It’s weird because they’re teaching the kids double handed forehand but N seems to be doing ok with it.  He was one of 2 stars of the week and I caught this picture of him. It’s really hard to get photos because parents are outside the courts and I didn’t want to be too obvious with the camera out.

On Saturday we went out for lunch to the Maytime Inn for a review meal. The food was delicious and the restaurant was lovely, but I still couldn’t resist trying one of the new Christmassy M&S gingerbread teacakes. Yum.

  1. I love a good head massage. Even better if it’s shoulders too!
    Gingerbread teacakes …I’ll have to seek those out!

  2. Hope the coffee morning went well.
    It can be difficult to discretely take pictures when other parents and children are around.
    We have had plenty of flowers on veg this year but little to show for it apart from green tomatoes.
