This week’s been better for taking photos, helped by the lighter evenings. Although it does mean that I see fewer sunrises, but get the sunsets instead. Swings and roundabouts then. It’s week 6 of Project 366, and onto the photos.
On Sunday it was just about dry, so I went for a walk around the reservoir in town. N wanted to go out with his dad on the farm, so I ended up going on my own. Typically when I started out it was sunny with blue skies, by the time I was out of the car, it was cloudy and grey. Oh, and extremely cold and windy. The sailing club were still out on the water, although I’m not sure most of my photos were that great. I couldn’t resist a few water droplet/rain photos on the grass though.
Monday was back to school, but by the end of the day, N had decided to tip all the DVDs on the floor, and start opening all of his unopened birthday presents from his school friends.
Tuesday was pancake day, and I had to send N into school with a frying pan and pancake. I knew I wasn’t going to make 1 pancake in the morning, so bought ready made ones for him to have one. That meant he ended up eating ready made pancakes for breakfast, had them for pudding at school lunch, then at after school club for tea, and had one at home that his dad made. I had my New You plan* maple syrup pancakes…they’re looking a bit strange in the pan because I made them with less water than normal so I thinned them out in the pan hence the weird circles and different colours! Still tasted good though.
On Wednesday I didn’t take many photos, but N did another thank you card. It’s taking a long time because he’ll only do 1 or 2 a day. I need to start filling in the rest and sending otherwise some people are going to be a bit peeved!
After a beautiful sunset on Wednesday evening, this was the sight I got up to on Thursday morning. Beautiful sunrise, and the contrails from the planes looks great across the sky too.
On Friday evening I went to Oxford with some other bloggers for a styling event at Olivia May clothing boutique organised as an Oxfordshire Bloggers event. It was lovely to catch up with existing blogging friends, and nice to meet some new ones. As well as speaking to one girl who I recognised and worked out that we’d worked together way back nearly 20 years ago!
On Saturday, N and I went to Oxford to review afternoon tea at Boswells and co department store tea rooms. Beforehand we went to explore the Ashmolean museum which was new to both of us. Luckily they have children’s trails which are always a good way of getting children to look at more around them.
