Week 40 of Project 366 coincides with my 40th birthday. Whoop. Exciting times (or not if you’re one of those people who are worried about their age). I can’t say my photos this week have been great. I’ve struggled to remember to take any so it’s been a scramble this week.
Autumn means lots of cooking apples and every weekend making apple based puddings. On Sunday it was a rustic apple ‘pie’.
On Monday I took one group of photos only, and this was at bedtime. I can’t even remember what N was doing, but he had a couple of days when he wanted to use his sleeping bag instead of a duvet. Sometimes he sleeps better in a sleeping back, but this time the duvet was better.
This week we’ve been having proper autumn mornings, all misty and pastel sunrise. Tuesday’s was beautiful with the view out of the window.
On Wednesday, again my photo was a quick snap at the end of the day. N loves taking photos, and he’d grabbed his dad’ phone and managed to get in and take photos of random carpet, toys and fireplace.
On Thursday it was a striking sunset. No amazing coloured skies, but the sun’s rays were pretty spectacular.
On Friday N managed to fill his reward chart with stickers. He gets stickers everything time he does reading, does writing, achieves a reward at school or tennis, does tidying or helps out. But he also gets it for completing the morning routine….teeth brushing, putting his pyjamas under his pillow and making his bed. He’s so keen at the moment that he’s even been putting all his teddies in order, setting them straight. Everytime he gets the routine or task down perfectly, I’ll be adding to it or changing what the stickers get given for. So far it seems to be going well, and he’s not moaned about the changing goal posts. I’m not sure what he was doing with my tablet in the bathroom!
On Saturday I opened my birthday presents. This was one of the gifts from my best friend. I’ve seen the books in stores, and had some earmarked for gifts for others. We obviously think in the same way.
