Today’s photo for Project 365 week 38 (and My Sunday Photo) was taken at Blog On Toys conference – strictly speaking taken on the Saturday night but near enough to this week. We were at the ‘Christmas’ Party before the conference in Hotel Football looking out over Salford Quays. I love a city skyline especially at night, and was pleased to get this photo out of my phone…with just a small edit to bring out the lights a bit more.
After the conference on Sunday, it was back into work on Monday after a frantic getting all N’s stuff ready for school. Because obviously when I arrived back at 9pm, the OH hadn’t emptied the dishwasher, or got any of N’s uniform, PE kit or school books out ready. At least N did manage to get his own uniform out in the morning.
The week’s weather was straight into Autumn wind and rain most of the week. I’ve had to get the slippers out and the cardigan has gone on in the evenings at home. Hopefully the OH will now leave the Aga on as we really need it to warm the house up and dry clothes.
Work was busy as usual, and school was more of the same – lots of homework, but N’s also enjoying lots of sport and loving having moved up to the top group in swimming, having jumped a whole group. Helped of course but only half of the year 4s going swimming this term, but still shows how well he’s progressed. He’s also loving being used as a demo lots in his normal swimming lessons. They now have a real mixed class as 7 children moved up leaving only N and another girl who moved to this class at Easter. When they moved up, the class was all fairly similar in level, but now they’ve moved up another 7, most of them are so far behind the 2 originals. I forget that we get this massive gap each new term. N likes being at the top of the group though, it does bring out some competitive spirit in him.
We’ve no plans this weekend. Saturday’s been full of normal end of week things like food shopping, swimming, washing clothes and dishes, and cooking. It’s surprising how fast the day goes and depressing when you realise you’ve done not much fun or enjoyable…only to have the OH come in and state I’ve done nothing today. Maybe he should actually rethink that given he’s worked and turned up to find 2 courses waiting for him, clean clothes, clean plates to eat off and food in the house.
Hopefully we’ll get some better weather next week and be able to go out and actually do something next weekend.
