Project 366 2016 week 43

This week’s Project 366 is one short as I’m away at the weekend.  Although it’s been half term, I was working so N’s largely been out on the farm from about 7 in the morning until 5 in the evening, hence a serious lack of photos of N.

On Sunday, N came home from being on the farm, with the youngest nephew in tow.  Of course that meant playing on the swings and monkey bars.  I think it’s nice for N to be able to do the monkey bars, because his cousin can’t, and the nephew is always really impressed that he can.

On Monday, I ambled out in the garden because I’d spotted this rosebud above next door’s fence.  So beautiful and a perfect colour for autumn.

On Tuesday, it was another mooch out in the garden.  The colours are really amazing at the moment, although there’s not going to be many leaves on the trees soon.

On Wednesday it was dance night in Oxford.  We’re so lucky to get to dance in the town hall there, and it’s quite something, especially with the lights.

On Thursday we eventually got round to carving the pumpkin.  It only took nearly 2 weeks!  I usually wat to do a fancy design, but N wanted to do a classic face.  So he drew….Bart Simpson.  Well, that’s who it looked like to me, even though he has no idea who Bart Simpson is.  N was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t add the ‘hat’ to our pumpkin.  And I’m annoyed because I can’t find my LED tea lights, so it’s currently unlit

On Friday I had a day off work, so it was a chance to spend the day out.  I wanted to go to one place, N wanted to go to Living Rainforest near Newbury  After visiting, I think we’d definitely have been better off going elsewhere for the day, but N had a great time in the play area.  And we saw some beautiful creatures.

  1. Nice to get out on the farm, but sounds like a long day and an early start for him, but then that is farm life for you.
    I agree there are some beautiful colours of plants and trees round at the moment.
