Week 45 of Project 52 and I wasn’t sure if I’d get a photo up. I had plans for this photo, but the weekend has been so busy (and not with much other than the usual chores) that I debaed just doing 2 weeks next time. But here I am.

N’s has a busy week. He was singing in the Children singing for children concert in th big church in town on Monday. A lovely chance to see and hear them sing and take me back to my youth singing in the school choir. He does love singing and he’s already moved on to Christmas songs – Gaudete being the first, so he’s now obsessed with finding every version of it online.
On Friday N had a school trip to Oxford’s Natural History Museum. He’s been there before but some time ago, it reminds me there’s lots of places we need to return to. He had a great time.
The rest of the week was quite normal for us. It finished with a meal at my brother in law’s for his birthday. We couldn’t get a baby sitter for the first time, but was able to take N with us. He was happy to spend time with his cousin – they spent a couple of hours watching Strictly (something he won’t do at home) and chatting away before going to bed around 9pm. I had to wake N after 11 so we could go home. Poor thing, I felt bad having to wake him up, but luckily he’s good when he wakes up and has no problems going off to sleep again once in his own bed. He still woke at 6.15ish, and was bright and breezy right up til bedtime. Let’s hope it doesn’t catch up with him when back at school.
This week’s photo was taken in a small town near us. We turned the corner to notice this beautiful display for Remembrance Day and the 100 years since the end of World War I. The displays in villages and towns have been quite moving to see. They’ve definitely encouraged N to ask more questions, although over the last couple of months he has said he’s having nightmares about the wars. Hopefully he’s got through that now.
