Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 – Week 24 Days 159-165.
Sunday 8th June – Day 159
I’d won tickets to the Tractor Ted Farm Show (we were going anyway so this was a bonus!). The weather wonderful, we met up with Monkey’s godmum and her family. Also got to see Emma from Bubbablueandme and her son which was lovely. We had a quick catch up with Fiona from Mummy’s Little Stars too – a blog fest, before BritMums! We had a great day, just as we did last year. It’s now an annual fixture on our calendar.
Monday 9th June – Day 160
When Monkey got home from Nursery School there was just time for some train track construction – one of his favourite things. We’d been sent a new track to review, my little engineer was thrilled. He did really well with his swimming, I could see real progress today.
Tuesday 10th June – Day 161
Monkey is 4 and half today. It’s also Mum and Dad’s wedding anniversary, so always a little bit special. He had a good full day at Nursery School and we had a quiet time watching his new Tractor Ted DVD when he got back from school. I went out for the evening for a curry with my NCT friends. Nice to have a change of scenery in the evening!
Wednesday 11th June – Day 162
We’re big bug hunting fans here as regular readers will know. We’d been sent a bug safari kit to review and Monkey was anxious to get started. We found all sorts of mini beasts in his sandpit. He was in his element. It’s on days like this that I wish Dad aka Guru Gramps, lived here to see his grandson’s enthusiasm – it’s in the genes!
Thursday 12th June – Day 163
Monkey’s third full day at Nursery School, no accident, a few tears and wanting Mummy at lunchtime but otherwise all ok. It was a beautiful day, so I’d got the paddling pool out all ready for his return. I even remembered his bubble machine. One very happy Monkey.
Friday 13th June – Day 164
Today the Dad’s were asked to go into school for an hour with their children for Fathers Day. Monkey was so excited to have his Daddy with him. In the afternoon it was time to introduce Monkey to his bit of digging ground in the garden. I’d cleared an old shrub away, and given him his own building site. It wasn’t long until Monkey Construction was in business. Back to swimming for me after missing 2 lessons. Managed some breast stroke, front crawl and back stroke. Still having lots of breathing issues and can’t go a full length, but I felt happy tonight.
Saturday 14th June – Day 165
A day with our Special Sheba, celebrating her birthday. The day started badly when I thought I’d lost my credit card. It wasn’t in my purse when we went to buy some flowers. Luckily I was near home, after a few panicky minutes I remembered I’d had to pay for my swimming lessons the night before and card was in a smaller purse – sighs! After a lovely day it was time for home and a mega meltdown over a peanut butter sandwich. Don’t ask. Then cheeky chappy was back.
