Project 365 2015 Week 1

Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project  A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year!  Project 365 2015 Week 1 Days 1-3.

Thursday 1st January – Day 1

Project 365 2015 Week 1

Monkey had slept through all the fireworks thankfully.  I’d drunk a little too much red wine so wasn’t in any great rush to see what 2015 had in store for us!  We had a lazy morning and then I prepared Roast Duck for our New Years Day meal.  It was lush and a personal favourite.  We Skyped Granny and Gramps to welcome them into the New Year and had fun making things with copious amounts of Lego.

Friday 2nd January – Day 2

Project 365 2015 Week 1

We went for a nice walk to our local post office so I could post a few packages and went lorry spotting along the way as you do.  Finally persuaded Monkey to write his name in birthdays cards for two friends whose party we are going to tomorrow.  Then it was play time and a bit of cross stitching for Mummy.  A tea time ice cream treat as Mummy had forgotten to replenish the yogurt stocks!

Saturday 3rd January – Day 3

Project 365 2015 Week 1

So an invitation to a Pirates, Superheroes and Princesses party for Monkey’s NCT buddies Miss B and Master S obviously meant that Monkey would only wear his new digger top!  I was really anxious about how he would cope, lots of kids he wouldn’t know in a strange place with disco and entertainment – not an ideal mix for my reserved little boy.  Yes, he was a limpet for most of the time.  But he loved helping me tidy up for our friends and had a great time playing balloon football with me.  I’d love him to be a party animal, but it doesn’t look like happening any time soon.  But he said he had a lovely time.

Home for the afternoon and snack time apparently means eating a whole carrot, not peeled and eaten in the same way most of us would eat corn on the cob.  Got to love him.

Think getting up for school on Tuesday is going to be a big challenge in this house.  Just noticed 3 days of red tops!

 

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. Happy new year 🙂 not sure I could eat ice cream in all this cold weather although all the sprinkles do look appealing!! x

  2. Ooh nice ice cream treat.

    Parties are so hard. You just never know what they’re going to be like. Sometimes N gets involved and other times he doesn’t until right near the end. I don’t think he’s keen on discos though – loves dancing usually, but dislikes the loud noise, especially with a whole load of excited screaming children!

  3. Impressed with the way he eats carrots! I can’t get my kids to eat carrots full stop. Both my eldest and my daughter used to be clingy and shy at parties, but they grew out of it, hopefully Monkey will too.

  4. Lovely cheerful photos! I wish we had duck for new year’s eve. I cooked a 3-bird roast from Lidl, and it wasn’t special at all, never again. Might do the duck for Russian Christmas on the 7th. Happy new year to you and Monkey, Mary!

  5. we cant all be party animals, one day he may surprise you. The ice cream looks very colourful with the decorations on. When my kids were wee and we went for their weekly treat the girls picked a 10p mix up ans son picked a carrot every time – and would eat it unpeeled on the way home. ( that and bonio dog biscuits)

  6. Funnily enough, H was quite clingy at parties for a while, then suddenly something seemed to click and she started to forget I was there! Next weekend is the second one where I leave her. LEAVE. Erk! x

  7. Nothing wrong with an ice-cream treat!!
    Glad he enjoyed the party. I always found it the ‘party animals’ that were the trouble makers and the quieter ones were the ones that got re-invited. 🙂

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