Joining in with TheBoyAndMe and her linky 365 Project A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year! Project 365 2015 Week 7 Days 39-45.
Sunday 8th February – Day 39
We spent the day at Packwood House with Redpeffer and her family. The weather was glorious and the kids were a dream, playing together, it was wonderful to watch. Monkey was more independent and the day was totally wonderful. If we can order weather like this for next month I will be very happy indeed.
Monday 9th February – Day 40
While Monkey was at school I went to my sewing class and made a pair of pj shorts for him for the summer. Just the waistband to sort out now and they are done. Monkey received a belated birthday present from a school friend – it was love at first sight. You can never have too many tractors.
Tuesday 10th February – Day 41
It was really foggy when we got up this morning. One of those days I’m very grateful that I don’t need to drive to work.
Wednesday 11th February – Day 42
A difficult day for me remembering a friend I lost 15 years ago. A Jado Chi session was much-needed to take my mind off memories. When I’d got Monkey ready for school I realised the stitching on his school shoes had broken and new shoes would be needed. I knew his feet had grown anyway. He went off on a school trip to the Story Museum in Oxford and then we rushed down to Clarks when school was over. The boy is catching me up way too fast.
Thursday 12th February – Day 43
I had my hair cut and coloured in the morning and then after school there was much excitement as Monkey was going for tea at his best friends house for the first time. Of course, being the timid little thing that he is, I had to go too, although he really didn’t need me! It was lovely to watch them together having lots of fun. Maybe next time he’ll be brave enough to go without me. When we got home I was challenged to make a maize harvester from Stickle Bricks so Monkey could do some harvesting, as you do.
Friday 13th February – Day 44
I love the days that start with Monkey reading to me. Jobs done in the morning whilst Monkey was at school and then a luscious lunch out with my NCT Mums and the three younger boys in our little group. None of them are babies now as the youngest will be 2 next week. Picked Monkey up from school – the holidays have started and he spent the afternoon converting a cardboard box into a home for his Teddy.
We met up with Monkey’s godmum and daughter at Crocodiles of the World and thankfully avoided the horrific accident on the M40. Awful foggy conditions – when will people put their lights on and slow down. We had a brilliant day and the kids really enjoyed it. Monkey has been reliving the day with the crocodile that came home with us and we all learnt something – can’t ask more from a day out can you. Monkey wasn’t brave enough to hold an alligator but he did touch its tail!
