Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 – Week 29 Days 194-200.
Sunday 13th July – Day 194
Kate over at Darktea had recommended the Woodcote Traction Steam Rally to us, and as the tickets were considerably cheaper than going to Fairford again, off we went. Monkey was in his element. We found an old steam-powered hay baler and that was his entertainment sorted for a good hour. He was totally fascinated.
Monday 14th July – Day 195
We’ve moved swimming lessons to Tuesdays from this week. The Monday class timings won’t work when he starts school, so better to get it sorted beforehand. So we had an uninterrupted afternoon at home. Monkey decided that he wanted to make a collage with some leaves we’d pressed recently.
Tuesday 15th July – Day 196
Monkey had his settling in day in his Reception Class. I think it went well, Monkey is certainly not telling me! He came home filthy, so it was a quick change then off to his new swimming lesson. He was less than impressed, big meltdown. He was tired, it wasn’t the best timing, but never mind. He actually did ok in his lesson, it’s the same teacher, and he coped well with meeting a group of new children. When we got home he wanted to have a cuddle on his bed and be friends again. So hence the silly selfie to get him smiling again.
Wednesday 16th July – Day 197
While Monkey was at Nursery School I spent the morning using the Rug Doctor we’d been sent to review, cleaning the carpets upstairs. It gave me the opportunity to sort Monkey’s room out a bit. We are definitely suffering from too many toys/not enough storage. After school he came to inspect my work and played happily with his Lego Hero Factory toys and dinosaurs. I love seeing him sat like this – a proper little school boy now!
Thursday 17th July – Day 198
I’ve totally forgotten to take a photo of Monkey today, but I did take this rose photo earlier today. My neighbours are on holiday this week and I’m in charge of not killing the plants in their garden – no pressure there then with this weather! I adore their roses, this one is just stunning in my opinion.
Friday 18th July – Day 199
Today was Super Heroes day at school. We don’t have any clothing to suit this theme and it was hot, Monkey didn’t want to dress up … blah, blah, blah. He eventually agreed to wear his Super Mario t-shirt as a compromise and off he went. It was also the last full day for him at Nursery School, only half days now until he finishes on Tuesday – eek! He is getting so tired now, he needs the summer holidays. The afternoon was spent mainly on the sofa, reading books and chilling out.
I had a new instructor for swimming, our normal one had a little girl on Thursday, a few weeks early. The evening went well, I think I might be getting over my issues with front crawl. Fingers crossed.
Saturday 19th July – Day 200
We had another thunderstorm in the early hours. Monkey slept through the one on Thursday night, but not last night. We’ve both been awake since 4am, not good. I cancelled today’s meet up with a few friends as we are both so tired and I can see meltdown city approaching. Monkey is insistent on a PJ day with his construction toys. I think we’ll both be in bed early tonight!
