365 Project Days 1 to 4

I’m always taking photographs, always have done since I was given Mum’s old Brownie camera as a little girl.  So it’s about time I joined in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project “A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year!”  So here I am on the start of this daily journey, which I will be taking week by week, 365 Project Days 1 to 4.

Day 1 Wednesday

365 Project Days 1 to 4A day spent in bed recovering from some sort of virus. I felt awful and was treated to a cup of tea in bed and some peace and quiet to start a new book.

Day 2 Thursday

365 Project Days 1 to 4Monkey enjoying the last few moments before Daddy P disappears back into his ‘black hole’ AKA work.  Daddy time is so rare in this house, that even an extra full day makes so much difference.  Monkey loves it, but then there are tears when Daddy is not home again – hard sometimes for my little man.

Day 3 Friday

365 Project Days 1 to 4A rainy day spent at home – painting, drawing and playing with trains.  Some of Monkey’s favourite activities.

Day 4 – Saturday

365 Project Days 1 to 4A rare treat, lying in Mummy’s bed watching Cbeebies before breakfast.  We deserved a lie in and I learnt that Justin Fletcher was once a Tweenie! Needless to say Monkey comes complete with his little entourage – Teddy, Joseph the Andrex Puppy, Mini Brewster, Furby and Gaston the Ladybird to name but a few.  Just as well I have a kingsize bed!


About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 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 days out, 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. I think we’re all in the same boat as far as the mornings go-we start back on Tues sigh. I’ve been thinking about project 365 now all week-The Boy and Me has a great idea there. I might just take the plunge and go for it. It looks fun 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better xx

  2. Lol my wee man is the same with his collection of toys in bed! I understand about the Daddy time. My hubby works away usually monday to wednesday and the wee man finds it difficult and clings to him when he comes back!

  3. I had no idea Justin was a tweenie, you learn something new every day 🙂 Love the painting photo, such concentration x

  4. Fabulous photos Mary – sounds like you’ve had a good week. Sorry bit late commenting, been bonkers these past days! I’ve joined 365 too – so looking forward to it. Challenging now back at work 🙂

  5. There is nothing better than a new book and a day in bed when you are feeling rotten. Hope you have felt better on the 2nd week of the year 🙂

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