Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 – Week 25-26 Days 166-179.
Sunday 15th June – Day 166 It was Father’s Day and I’d ordered tickets for Cadbury World with Tesco reward vouchers. Daddy P and Monkey are both chocoholics so they had a great time. In the afternoon we explored Bourneville and found the park. I just love their expressions in this photo – Father and son having fun. Monday 16th June – Day 167 Monkey still loves the camera he got last year for the Kids Capture the Colour competition. He takes photos every day, copying Mummy. Some are quite good, some are awful. It doesn’t matter, I love watching his concentration. Tuesday 17th June – Day 168 Monkey had a full day at Nursery School and then straight out into the garden for some stencil fun in the sunshine. Wednesday 18th June – Day 169 We’d had a delivery from Postman Pat and this photo just makes me laugh. I don’t think Brewster knew what to make of Jess, especially when he started to meow! Thursday 19th June – Day 170 Pirate Day at school – Monkey really wanted to dress up, first time he’s shown genuine excitement about that. But he certainly didn’t want his photo taken – can you tell?? I made his buckles and I was really pleased with the result. Friday 20th June – Day 171 Hair straightened, nails polished, make up applied and I was on my way to BritMums Live. Scared, nervous and excited. Daddy P was in charge of picking Monkey up from school in the afternoon. I thought he’d overslept when the school rang me at 4pm; thankfully he hadn’t! I properly got to meet The Boy and Me 🙂 Saturday 21st June – Day 172 Me and my roomies at BritMums Live – Fiona from Mummy’s Little Stars and Tina from The Soup Dragon Says. Two lovely ladies, who have become great friends over the last 18 months. The day went so fast, my brain was frazzled and I was glad we decided to spend the extra night at the hotel. We met up with the rest of our hotel buddies and had a lovely meal out and Fiona and I treated ourselves to a well deserved bottle of wine. Sunday 22nd June – Day 173 I’d planned on spending most of the day in London, enjoying the sunshine and having a wander around the sights. But then I got a text, please come home, Monkey doesn’t want to see the Steam Trains, he just wants to pick Mummy up from the station! How could I do anything other than get the train home. Bless him, he was so excited when he spotted me on the train from the platform – it was good to be back with my boy. He’s only ever had one night without Mummy before, so he did well. Monday 23rd June – Day 174 Mummy, are you staying home now? Yes Monkey. He did really well in his swimming lesson today, made me so proud. I had a Dentist appointment in the morning, got to go back in a couple of weeks to have some work on one of my wisdom teeth – joy! Tuesday 24th June – Day 175 Monkey woke me up at 5am and got in to bed with me, within minutes he was fast asleep and he slept through my alarm too. I love watching him sleeping, but very rarely ever take a photo. His beloved teddy is never far away. Wednesday 25th June – Day 176 Monkey and a tube full of dinosaurs. We’d been sent some cute little dinosaurs to review and Monkey decided to have a play before breakfast – roar! Thursday 26th June – Day 177 Cheeky Monkey in the kitchen. He’d had a full day at school, and I’d spent most of that time sorting out things for the blog. I’d promised him pizzas, didn’t quite have the time to do it from scratch so we settled for doing our own toppings on ready-made bases. He loved helping. Friday 27th June – Day 178 We’d been sent some crafting goodies from Baker Ross, so we decided to take some on our play date. Monkey and a couple of his friends made some Stained Glass window effect butterflies. I returned to my swimming lessons after missing last Friday night, got on really well with backstroke, and came home feeling really chuffed. Saturday 28th June – 179 We met up with Iona from Redpeffer and her family for some fun at Charlecote Park. It was Monkey’s first time trying to master croquet! We had a lovely time, even with intermittent rain.
