Sunday 1st February – Day 32

Project 365 2015 Week 6

Monkey and I spent the morning on a couple of craft projects and then he decided he wanted to make the lunch – a first.  He did really well with it.

Monday 2nd February – Day 33

Project 365 2015 Week 6

Whilst Monkey was at school I went to my sewing class and we tried to sort out the dressing gown I’m making for him.  The pattern sizes are way too big, and it’s caused a few issues but all a learning process.  A quiet afternoon at home with Monkey and then I spotted this sight as I went to bed.  Would we be making a snowman before school in the morning?

Tuesday 3rd February – Day 34

Project 365 2015 Week 6

No snowman building – it had all disappeared by lunchtime 🙁

I was just about to leave home for a lunch date with a friend when I got a call from the school.  Monkey had had an accident and wasn’t feeling well.  Bless him, he’d fallen over and landed on his nose, had a huge nose bleed and just wanted his Mummy.  This picture doesn’t really show it but by bedtime all the left side of his nose had swollen up and the bruising was coming out.  No swimming lesson and lots of cuddles required.

Wednesday 4th February – Day 35

Project 365 2015 Week 6

The boy has no luck!  today he came out of school with an accident form – one of his class mates had accidentally dropped a toy on his head – big bruise to add to his sore nose.  We got home and were playing upstairs when the door went.  I’d totally forgot he was having his hair cut.

Thursday 5th February – Day 36

Project 365 2015 Week 6

After dropping Monkey at school I drove up to the NEC for the last day of Spring Fair.  Met Iona from Redpeffer and we had a number of really constructive meetings, well worth the drive.  Home to pick up Monkey from school and then he was sat happily drawing and writing!!!  I think the tide may be turning.

Friday 6th February – Day 37

Project 365 2015 Week 6

Mummy come and listen to me and Daddy singing the Mister Maker song!  This is what awaited me this morning.  Hysterical, note Daddy P with Monkey’s handmade ‘guitar’! Love that boy.  I popped over to Banbury as I wanted to have a look around a fabric store for my next sewing project – it was a bit of a disappointment compared to years ago.  But I found something, so I’m already to start again on Monday.

Saturday 7th February – Day 38
Project 365 2015 Week 6

Monkey and I went used the Park and Ride service to get into Oxford this morning.  We met up with Galina from Chez Maximka and her son and we all got to meet the Honey Monster.  Afterwards we took the boys for lunch at Giraffe – a new experience for all of us. Galina was the first blogger I met, back in 2013 and we haven’t had the chance to get together since, so it was great to rectify that.

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. Poor Monkey, so many accidents in one week. It was great fun to meet you two today, we should do it more often, and not wait for another two years. Lovely photos of your young man.

  2. Aw poor boy with the bumps and bruises – hope he’s okay now. The writing and drawing will just happen – he seems similar to my boy who wasn’t interested in picking up a pencil at all during his Reception year. It’s so nice to meet up with other bloggers isn’t it? 🙂

  3. Oh dear, poor Monkey! Two accidents in one week is a bit much. Sound like you’ve had a good week, apart from that though!

  4. Hope he’s recovered from his bumps. In the nosebleed day photo, he does look a bit pale.

    I didn’t know there was a Giraffe in Oxford. Whereabouts is that? Good to know.

  5. Aww what a shame that the snow didn’t stick. I hope some more arrives for him so he can build a snowman. Hope he is feeling better soon too, we’ve also been ill for the past two weeks.

  6. What a bumpy week! How great though to meet up with some other bloggers. How’s the sewing going? (Long ago I was rather good at it)

  7. Lots of bumps in a week. My daughter is the same, bruised legs all the time!
    We had fingers crossed for snow but none where we live. Had to travel to Brecon to get lots of lovely snow.

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