Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 – Week 30 Days 201-207.
Sunday 20th July – Day 201
After a busy week we were all in need of a quiet day. Monkey loves his new Aquabeads set and enjoyed making some new suncatchers. We’d been for a disastrous meal at our local Brewers Fayre recently; I’d complained and we’d been given a £40 voucher to spend. So as it was rather hot, I decided we’d eat there for dinner. The service was considerably better and the Sticky Toffee Pudding was rather nice!
Monday 21st July – Day 202
After school we needed to make some goodbye cards for Monkey’s teacher and key workers. Monkey was making hand print cards, when he’d finished it was time to make some hand print pictures for home. He loved it. We then made cakes for the end of term party. I was so impressed with him. He was so exact with his sprinkles, no more manic coverings. We obviously had to conduct a taste test just to make sure they were ok.
Tuesday 22nd July – Day 203
End of an era as Monkey left Nursery School today. He had an end of term party and apparently a digger top is the correct party wear these days. He was rather happy with his bundle of goodies when he came home. It did make me laugh when he found a packet of Haribo’s and put them straight in the bin – trained him well!
Wednesday 23rd July – Day 204
We’ve got a really busy few days away coming up so I made sure we had a day at home today. Time for Monkey to chill after a busy term, time for me to enjoy his company. We had a Teddy Bear’s Picnic in the garden, played Pumpaloons and generally enjoyed the sunshine.
Thursday 24th July – Day 205
We drove down to Sussex and went to an event at Butlins with Tina from The Soup Dragon Says and her son. We were having a sleepover at her house, after dinner we spent an hour on the beach – Monkey loved it.
Friday 25th July – Day 206
We spent the day with Tina and her son enjoying the wonderful Jousting at Arundel Castle. It really was fabulous. Even getting caught in a thunderstorm in the afternoon didn’t dampen our spirits, even if we were drenched. We headed home, my Sat Nav sent us on a magical mystery tour, so I stopped at the services for dinner as we were going to be home so late. Went back to the car and it wouldn’t start – aargh. Called the AA out and an hour later it was decided my starter motor is knackered. Managed to get home at 9.00pm – so straight to bed for a worn out Monkey and no swimming lesson for me.
Saturday 26th July – Day 207
After a long lie in this morning Monkey tried out his new Dobble Kids game. We’ve had some excitement here today! We’ve had a photographer and make up artist from the Daily Mail visit us for a photo shoot for a feature on Sorgenfresser Worry Eaters. Monkey did really well considering earlier this morning he told me he would not have his photo taken at all.
