Monkey did really well again at his swimming lesson, no fuss when it was time for his to go with teacher.  I think we really have turned a corner.  He struggles a bit with swimming on his back.  Doesn’t like getting his ears in the water, I know that feeling!

Tuesday 29th April – Day 119

Project 365 Week 18

 

Time to get out in the garden and get planting!  Our seedlings were ready for planting out and Monkey was definitely in charge.  It was a pleasure watching him take control.  His grandparents will be impressed.

Wednesday 30th April – Day 120

Project 365 Week 18

I’ve not been feeling great for a while, went to the Doctors last week, thinking I was starting the menopause.  She’s not convinced so off for a load of blood tests.

Thursday 1st May – Day 121

Project 365 Week 18

Monkey’s Auntie and Uncle are currently cruising on the Queen Mary.  I’m a strong believer in the written word and have always loved postcards, especially as a child.  I’d asked them before they went if they would send Monkey a postcard on their travels.  It’s something I always did with my brothers children.  He got his first postcard from Sri Lanka earlier in the week and then this one arrived from Singapore.  He has been so excited about them.  Even more so as they both have a S – slither down the snake Mummy!!!  My boy is starting to recognise his letters!!

Friday 2nd May – Day 122

Project 365 Week 18

Monkey makes me laugh, he will only drink milk through a straw.  The colour of the straw should be red, but this photo took me back to my childhood. Watch out! Watch out! Humphrey’s about!  You need to be of a certain age to know what on earth I’m talking about.  Brownie points if you do!  My swimming lesson went well, getting to grips with Front Crawl and breathing, enjoyed it.  Made up for the day from hell with the blog, Jetpack no longer working, lots of functionality gone, widgets disappeared and on and on 🙁

Saturday 3rd May – Day 123

Project 365 Week 18

I didn’t get to bed until 1.30am trying to catch up on some blog commenting, then Monkey decided to get into my bed to wake me up at 5.50am.  He’s never awake that early!! Yawn. We spent a lovely, relaxing day with Auntie Sheba.  Monkey made a story book from stickers and kept us both entertained.  Early night needed!

 

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Lovely photos, I especially like Monkey with his postcard 🙂 Hope your test results are OK.

  2. I can just imagine Monkey being super excited about the postcards, it’s always so great to receive them. Well done Monkey with his swimming, sounds like he’s doing well even with water in the ears – glad yours is too! Hopefully you’ll get some answers from your blood tests and you’re not feeling too bad x

  3. aaa kids always know when we’ll be tired 😉 hope you get some answers asap from your blood tests #project365

  4. So lovely to see a good old fashioned postcard causing excitement, and the gardening picture is great – he is putting those gloves on with determination!

  5. what a nice thing to collect – postcards from their ports of call, great to keep and look back on. Well done for recognising the letters. Hope the blood tests come back ok for you. I dont like water in my ears or up my nose either so dont blame him.

  6. Postcards and letters through the post are great for kids.

    Great about the swimming corner he’s turned. Happens so often, and then the next minute, it’s unrecognisable that they ever had a moan about something. Good luck with the bloods.

  7. It makes me sad that people don’t really send postcards anymore. Yay for starting to recognise letters too 🙂

    Hope your test results don’t take long and give you some answers x

  8. I love postcards. I love getting some for a photo album or scrap book of any holiday we’ve been on. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  9. Love this. My daughter only wants to drink through a straw too! Monkey is getting so big now…. looks grown up! Hope you feel better soon and it’s nothing to worry about…. And I too been having blog tech problems (as you know) silly stupid wordpress lol

  10. Hope your tests find nothing untoward.
    Love that MOnkey has to drink milk through a straw. Our grandson won’t drink anything unless it’s warm!

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
