This week I was surprised to realise that we’ve only got 2 weeks left of the holidays. It really has whizzed by and after last week’s 1 day off and trip to London, we’ve got a week and a half of me being off work, so I’m getting planning for all those days. Holiday here we come for a few days – and N will be going on his first flight. That was his one request for holiday.
Here’s week 33 of Project 366.
On Sunday I took N to Cotswold Wildlife Park. We’ve been a couple of times before, but this time did manage to see most of it. The penguins are some of our favourites, but there wasn’t much action because the keeper was in the water ‘hoovering’ up the poo off the bottom of the pool. Turns out they’re scared of the hose. This photo was just before they were ready to dive.
On Monday it was back to work, but in the evening the sun was streaming into the living room and I managed to get some lovely photos of N concentrating on playing tractors.
On Tuesday, we finished off the scones I made at the weekend. They don’t last long in our house, but I was gutted we had no strawberry jam. Raspberry just doesn’t taste as good.
All of this holiday that N’s been at holiday club, although I’d booked N in for 8-8.30 to 5.30, N’s been picked up by 3pm by his dad or various other family members. Of course I checked with the OH before paying my invoice but he didn’t say it’d be all the time. Not using those 2 hours is costing me a lot of money which could have been spent on holidays, meals out or school uniform. Of course, the OH didn’t think about that before I paid my bill. It also means that my mother-in-law is having to feed N each day before I get home, but the bonus is he gets to go out and do some farming each day. On Wednesday I went to collect him from the farm only to see him having an amusing face off with our dog.
On Thursday I looked out of the window and spotted the sun-setting. The sky was really pink, it was beautiful.
Early on Friday morning just before I went to bed (yes, I do stay up way too late), I spotted the moon looking pink and got this photo. I do need some practice ( and ideally a longer lens than my 300mm equivalent to avoid needing to crop so much) at doing night photography, but I was pleased with how this turned out.
On Saturday, it was an odd job type of day and pottering. N had to come into town with me for my hair appointment and insisted on taking his teddy bear with him. I love the outfit he was in as well. His shorts are actually chinos but look more casual because they’re quite long, and the stripy top goes so well with it.
