Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 – Week 38 Days 257-263.
Sunday 14th September – Day 257
I had a lovely girls day out with Iona from Redpeffer while Monkey and Daddy P went to the Bedfordshire Steam Fair. We all had a great day and Monkey was full of beans when he got home. We spent some time sorting out his soft toys – apparently even a nearly 5-year-old Monkey can’t have enough of them!
Monday 15th September – Day 258
Monkey had a good day at school but is still really tired by the time he gets home from school. I made potato and bean soup for my lunch – scrummy. My day was going well until I tripped down the last three steps of our stairs and hit my head against the door frame. Cue blood and a rather large bump. Daddy P had to come to my rescue, luckily the blood looked worse than the actual cut and I was just left with a bad headache.
Tuesday 16th September – Day 259
Another good day at school for Monkey, he now seems to have accepted his new routine. I went to donate blood for the first time with a friend. I didn’t have any issues, but my friend was stopped as she was feeling really faint. Picked Monkey up from school and then a bit of a rush to get to swimming, but he did well and managed to swim a bit unaided too. This is the sight that greeted me when I went to check on him before going to bed. He was absolutely sparko. See what I mean about the soft toys. Just as well he has a single bed coming next week.
Wednesday 17th September – Day 260
The day went horribly wrong as I was getting breakfast ready. Felt terribly faint and had to call Daddy P to take over. I’m guessing it was a reaction to giving blood yesterday, but i felt dreadful all day. I was either asleep or unable to move due to feeling faint. All my plans for the day went out the window. Monkey was a little star. He went to school with Daddy P and was really happy when he picked him up too. When he got home he went into Doctor mode and looked after poorly Mummy.
Thursday 18th September – Day 261
Thankfully I was feeling much better than Wednesday, so I dropped Monkey off at school, before a mad day catching up on all of yesterdays chores. Ended up in Banbury and met Emma from Bubbablueandme for lunch. Nice to have a catch up, but so sad to see so many empty shops. Monkey was full of information about school when I picked him up!! He liked his school dinner and smiled when he had his school photo taken – I do hope he really did!
Friday 19th September – Day 262
I found Monkey in the Living Room with a book before school. He was looking for letters that he knew – love that boy. He had another good day at school and we actually played a few games in the afternoon before he crashed on the sofa. Took it easy at swimming tonight, jut a few lengths done and concentrated on trying to overcome fear of going under the water.
Saturday 20th September – Day 263
Monkey and I had a lazy morning, watching CBeebies in bed – treat! Then we popped over to see my youngest niece with her pressie, can’t believe she will be 16 tomorrow – eek. We then went in search of some Lego thanks to the Daily Mail, had lunch out before Monkey got to work when we got home.
