Sunday 23rd November – Day 327

Project 365 Week 48

We met up with Redpeffer and her family for the day at Evesham Country Park.  Our husbands got to meet for the first time.  We couldn’t miss the opportunity to go on the steam train could we!  Afterwards we went for a walk in the park – lots of muddy puddles. Little did we know that Monkey had rather large muddy puddles in his wellies until we went back to the car!  Something went amiss with our waterproofing so he had to sit in his pants wrapped in a fleece on the journey home.  He didn’t care, he’d had a lovely time!

Monday 24th November – Day 328

Project 365 Week 48

Monkey had a busy day at school.  I went to my sewing machine class and a piece of plush fleece type fabric gave myself and my teacher a few grey hairs!  We conquered it in the end and project B is well under way.  After school Monkey decided it was time for some serious Trackmaster building.

Tuesday 25th November – Day 329

Project 365 Week 48

Monkey did well in his swimming lesson and came home to work on some Christmas art whilst I cooked dinner.

Wednesday 26th November – Day 330

Project 365 Week 48

Really enjoyed my Jado Chi session and came home determined to finish all the outlining on my cross stitch project.  Now to make it into a stocking so it can actually be filled with presents for Monkey this Christmas.

Thursday 27th November – Day 331

Project 365 Week 48

A busy day Christmas and Birthday shopping whilst Monkey was at school!  After school Monkey and I were invited round to one of his classmate’s houses to celebrate Thanksgiving with them.  We had a delicious meal and I got to eat pumpkin pie for the first time – yummy!  It was so nice to be invited to spend time with friends and we thoroughly enjoyed our first Thanksgiving celebrations.  It meant a late night for Monkey and a few cuddles with a new friend at bedtime.

Friday 28th November – Day 332

Project 365 Week 48

I left my brain in bed and went out for the morning, totally forgetting I was supposed to met up with an old friend – aargh! We had a special and rather exciting delivery – our very own #TowerPoppy.  It might crack in frost so we think we will plant it in the garden next year when the weather is better.  Think the flower itself might live in my display case until then.  Monkey enjoyed a dress down day at school and came home to play knights with his castle and new siege tower.  One happy boy.

Saturday 29th November – Day 333

Project 365 Week 48

Monkey had an unsettled night, which meant I did too, we have breakfast in bed this morning.  Luckily I had no plans for the day, so we crafted, played games, had small world play time and I baked another Maple Syrup and Banana Loaf.  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. Wow well done on your cross stitch, I’m not sure I would have the patience for that. That looks like a cute new addition there, think a very similar one has come to visit us.

  2. Crikey that cross stitch must have taken ages. I did a random felt stocking for N – complete with a bit of stitching and applique. About my limit, but all hand stitched and it’s lasted well so far.

  3. that cross stitch looks amazing, well done you, I use to enjoy it and made the older 2 very nice quilts for when they were born, sadly eyesight not good enough any more and the hands get sore as well ( yes yes I know I am getting old)
    Glad you mastered the material, look forward to seeing what you are making.
    He colours very well for his age, Bob’s colouring has improved since he got his glasses.

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