It’s week 1 of Project 52 for 2020. A photo to represent something in the week just gone. This week includes part of last year as well as the first few days of this new year. Here’s our week 1.
On Sunday, it was dry and we meet with friends to play tennis. N and his friend played while us mums had a chat, before we all got on court. Tennis does make me laugh. Everyone thinks I must be amazing because I’m so interested in it, and played a bit at school. However, I’ve played a lot of squash in between over the last 20+ years, so my tennis is terrible. In comparison I see other parents get on court who claim to not play and know nothing, and they’re really good players. Certainly a lot better than I am (and ever was). I need a lot of practice and probably some coaching! It was lovely and sociable to play. How tennis should be.
On Monday, we didn’t do much. I supervised N doing some archery in the garden, and finally put some bird seed out.

Tuesday was new year’s eve, but we didn’t do anything to celebrate it. I took the Christmas tree down. Most of the day was spent with N and his cousin making Gravitrax* runs. We had more internet issues again. Not good given we’re still having Freeview signal issues too. High pressure has not been welcome.
On New Year’s day it was a normal day at home. A day of puzzles for me as I finished a Christmas puzzle, and then built a 3D Buckingham Palace puzzle. I’ve not started any more puzzles, so I expect that might be me done for the winter. I only seem to do them in winter.
On Thursday I gave N a choice of where we could go. It was time to actually do something this whole holiday, other than put yet another dishwasher load on, go food shopping or relax at home. He decided on Blists Hill Victorian Town and Enginuity, rather than National Trust. Of course he moaned about Blists Hill, but loved Enginuity – I think it’s somewhere we might revisit and make use of the annual passport to visit some of the other museums in the Ironbridge area.
Friday we headed to Cheltenham to meet up with a uni friend of mine and her 2 boys. There’s only a month in age between her eldest and N, although we’ve not seen them since they were about 4 at Treefest. We went to Airborne trampoline park and they had an hour of jumping before we caught up properly over lunch. Then a trip to Sports Direct as all 3 boys were keen to check out what was there.
On Saturday, N woke with a wobbly tooth. His 9th. Spooky as we were only discussing teeth falling out the day before and were saying he’d probably have to wait a while longer before the next one would be loose. He’s moaned all day about it, because it’s half out and sitting awkwardly. Hopefully it won’t be long before it comes out.
