Project 366 2016 Week 33 Day 227-233 – a week of trains, Red Pandas and racing sheep. Another fun-filled week.
Sunday 14th August – Day 227
We headed down to London for the day. I’d bought tickets for The Railway Children through Kids Week. Monkey and I had seen a film screening of the production earlier in the year, but seeing the show live was just brilliant. We explored St Pancras station for the first time and Monkey got to see a few Eurostar trains. Kings Cross Theatre is just around the corner from the London Canal Museum, so we popped in for a visit before heading home.
Monday 15th August – Day 228
We met Monkey’s godmother and her daughter at Cotswold Wildlife Park for the day. I hadn’t been with Monkey since he was really small, so it was lovely to revisit with him now. The weather was lovely, and we got to lots of animals. There were young zebras, rhinos and we even spotted a lion cub ear in the grass. Miss M loves Red Pandas and we were all thrilled to get a really good look at them in the trees. Isn’t he gorgeous.
Tuesday 16th August – Day 229
We were due for a quiet day at home. We got some jobs done around the house and had fun playing games and puzzling.
My nephew is doing well and can move to tablet antibiotics. This means the family can actually go on holiday next week. Yippee!
Wednesday 17th August – Day 230
We’d been invited to Odds Farm Park and took my friend L and her son C with us. We haven’t visited for quite some time so it was good to get reacquainted. C and I picked the winner in the Sheep Scramble, but some how Monkey ended up with my winner’s medal. We had lots of fun looking at the animals and enjoying the playgrounds. Monkey experienced his first circus show, I wasn’t sure how well he’d cope with it, but he was spellbound.
Thursday 18th August – Day 231
My phone died a couple of days ago, it was time to upgrade, something I always dread. Something always goes wrong! It was due to arrive at lunchtime, and after a few issues I seem to be up and running. Only problem being I can’t get my ‘live’ email address to verify on the iPhone 6. Rather annoying as it’s the email I use for my life outside of blogging (yes I do have one!). Monkey spent the day playing with his trains and K’Nex.
Friday 19th August – Day 232
Monkey’s feet had grown when I got him measured in Oxford a few weeks back, the penny suddenly dropped earlier this week, that that meant new school shoes and plimsolls. So off we trotted bright and early to get them sorted out. Now we really are ready for school – relax.
It’s been raining all day here, so Monkey’s been busy with a new Lego set and having fun with his K’Nex. Finally got my new phone to ring out with the right number, go me.
My side of the family are healthy, so now it’s my BIL’s turn to be ill again. He’s back in hospital this afternoon, having been very ill earlier this year. It really has been pouring on us today.
Saturday 20th August – Day 233
We’ve had a home day today, Monkey wasn’t too impressed I’d taken his photo this morning. Can you tell? It’s been another day of K’Nex building and general fun and games. I tried my hand at making Sushi, it may not have looked brilliant, but it tasted great.
No update on BIL as yet, he’s been waiting to have fluid drained from around his lung all day. A case of deja vu for us all, but hoping they’ve caught the issue much earlier than last time.
We’re off to Cornwall next Saturday, so think we’ll be on for a mega 3 week round-up when we get back. Enjoy the rest of the summer holidays everyone.
