Project 365 2017 Week 26 Day 176 – 182

Sunday 25th June  – Day 176

Project 365 2017 Week 26

We love the local Flywheel Festival, and this year we were invited as reviewers.  This is the face of a pig in muck.

Monday 26th June – Day 177

Project 365 2017 Week 26

A day of catching up with chores for me whilst Monkey was at school.  A quick snap before Monkey headed off to Beavers after dinner.

Tuesday 27th June – Day 178

Project 365 2017 Week 26

The duvet thief has been back a lot more again recently.  I’m not sure what he’s worrying about – maybe sports day next week or going up to Year 3.  Who knows, but he’s back to waking me up in the middle of the night again. He goes to sleep as soon as he gets into bed with me but I don’t.  All good fun.

Wednesday 28th June – Day 179

Project 365 2017 Week 26

I dropped Monkey off at school and headed up to Stratford-upon-Avon to meet up with my friend Iona.  We always head to Four Teas for coffee and cake and then go for a walk around the town.  The time flies by and before I knew it, it was time to head back down the motorway to pick Monkey up from school.

Thursday 29th June – Day 180

Project 365 2017 Week 26

I’ve spent most of the day reviewing and editing photos for my Flywheel post that goes live next week.  I really need to get a proper computer table and chair and a tower PC.  My shoulders and neck are causing a lot of issues and I know it’s down to using a laptop on a dining table.  Not good.

It’s the little things isn’t it.  We were sent an Four Teas – now when Monkey wakes up in the night he can find the toilet with this motion sensor unit and it even gives him something to aim at.  Who’d ever have thought I’d get excited about this kind of thing!

Friday 30th June – Day 181

Project 365 2017 Week 26

Early start for one on one lesson for Monkey and then I headed off to Minster Lovell Hall ruins to meet up with my photography class.  It’s somewhere I never knew existed and the ruins are set right by the river Windrush.  It’s a lovely setting and there were loads of butterflies in the surrounding meadows.  Most insisted on playing hide and seek with me.

Monkey had a great day at school and came home with a Behaviour Award for ‘Amazing Determination and resilience in everything he does”.  Wow.  He also made me shed a tear, he’d drawn a big heart and made me a letter – To Mummy, Thank you for helping me do my homework.  Love from Monkey ♥♥♥♥♥ Blimey, worth putting up with him shouting at me every single time he needs to do it then!

Saturday 1st July – Day 182

Project 365 2017 Week 26

Today was always going to be a quiet one.  We both need it.  Monkey actually slept in until 8am!!  Woop Woop! I seem to have pulled my back this morning so any plans for going to the cinema have been put on hold.  So we’ve been getting our Despicable Me 3 fix in others way with a perfectly timed delivery.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Yes they turn from little monsters who’s behaviour you do not like to sweet loveable little creatures that melt your heart. Well done on the award Monkey.
    I am as bad mine is a laptop on my knee.
    Love your first picture.

  2. Hehe I love how chuffed he looks at the festival. That thing to help with peeing sounds interesting so going to have a read about it now. I hope your back feels better soon too as there is nothing worse is there. #365

  3. I love the first couple of photos….What happy faces!
    I hope your boy starts sleeping right through again….I hope sports day goes well.
    Well done Monkey with the Behaviour Award….You must be very proud x

  4. Love the happy faces of Monkey. Great to hear about his award at school too. I can just imagine what it must be like with him getting into your bed at night – I wouldn’t get back to sleep either!

  5. You’ve had a busy week!! I didn’t know what flywheel was but he does look very happy there 🙂 and we just watched Despicable me 3 yesterday and Z loved it!

  6. That’s a lovely first photo, and a nice letter to have been given from him. I’ve had Minster Lovell in my to visit places for 2 years, but haven’t got there yet. Was it a trek from parking or easy enough?

  7. Monkey looks very relaxed an d content at the festival. made me smile. and well done on his achievement certificate – excellent work. love his letter to you – that would have made me get teary too. I love the photo of the bridge and the butterfly. I hope the toilet aiming system is working – think all toilets should have this for men!!! (and boys!) X
