Sunday 14th September – Day 257

Project 365 - Week 38

I had a lovely girls day out with Iona from Redpeffer while Monkey and Daddy P went to the Bedfordshire Steam Fair.  We all had a great day and Monkey was full of beans when he got home.  We spent some time sorting out his soft toys – apparently even a nearly 5-year-old Monkey can’t have enough of them!

Monday 15th September – Day 258

Project 365 - Week 38

Monkey had a good day at school but is still really tired by the time he gets home from school. I made potato and bean soup for my lunch – scrummy.  My day was going well until I tripped down the last three steps of our stairs and hit my head against the door frame. Cue blood and a rather large bump.  Daddy P had to come to my rescue, luckily the blood looked worse than the actual cut and I was just left with a bad headache.

Tuesday 16th September – Day 259

Project 365 - Week 38

Another good day at school for Monkey, he now seems to have accepted his new routine.  I went to donate blood for the first time with a friend.  I didn’t have any issues, but my friend was stopped as she was feeling really faint. Picked Monkey up from school and then a bit of a rush to get to swimming, but he did well and managed to swim a bit unaided too. This is the sight that greeted me when I went to check on him before going to bed.  He was absolutely sparko.  See what I mean about the soft toys.  Just as well he has a single bed coming next week.

Wednesday 17th September – Day 260

Project 365 - Week 38

The day went horribly wrong as I was getting breakfast ready.  Felt terribly faint and had to call Daddy P to take over.  I’m guessing it was a reaction to giving blood yesterday, but i felt dreadful all day.  I was either asleep or unable to move due to feeling faint.  All my plans for the day went out the window.  Monkey was a little star.  He went to school with Daddy P and was really happy when he picked him up too.  When he got home he went into Doctor mode and looked after poorly Mummy.

Thursday 18th September – Day 261

Project 365 - Week 38

Thankfully I was feeling much better than Wednesday, so I dropped Monkey off at school, before a mad day catching up on all of yesterdays chores.  Ended up in Banbury and met Emma from Bubbablueandme for lunch.  Nice to have a catch up, but so sad to see so many empty shops.  Monkey was full of information about school when I picked him up!! He liked his school dinner and smiled when he had his school photo taken – I do hope he really did!

Friday 19th September – Day 262

Project 365 - Week 38

I found Monkey in the Living Room with a book before school. He was looking for letters that he knew – love that boy.  He had another good day at school and we actually played a few games in the afternoon before he crashed on the sofa.  Took it easy at swimming tonight, jut a few lengths done and concentrated on trying to overcome fear of going under the water.

Saturday 20th September – Day 263

Project 365 - Week 38Monkey and I had a lazy morning, watching CBeebies in bed – treat! Then we popped over to see my youngest niece with her pressie, can’t believe she will be 16 tomorrow – eek. We then went in search of some Lego thanks to the Daily Mail, had lunch out before Monkey got to work when we got home.

 

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. he has a cuddly toy collection to rival mine at his age!

    And I’m glad Artie isn’t the only one who sleeps the wrong way up 😉

  2. Love the photo of Monkey with his cuddly toys. Sorry to hear about your bumped head and feeling ill, not the best week for you!

  3. Totally forgot this morning about the daily mail thing. Very annoying as I was in town. Must remember during the week.

    Hope the school photo turns out ok. always a worrying time when you wonder what it’s going to turn out like.

  4. Ouch to your fall. I hope your ok now?
    I also feel faint when giving blood, infact I now can’t as I past out the last 2 times 🙁

  5. hope his first school pictures turn out ok and that he did smile nicely. Oh dear at the bump on your head, you probably should have had it checked in case that was what was making you feel rough, giving blood really should not do that, but if you are ok now then no harm done.
    Its lovely how they start to read, and a great first stage, well done on his enthusiasm

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