Project 365 2018 Week 40

Project 365 2018 Week 40 Days 273 – 279 The week of feeling decidedly under the weather.

Sunday 30th September – Day 273

Project 365 2018 Week 40

We’d been invited to the Cotswold Airport Revival Festival but my lunchtime I was feeling so cold we decided to leave.  We were really close to Swindon so we decided to pop into STEAM so my son could revisit the museum we’d last been to when he was really small.  It gave me a chance to try to warm up and him time to play trains.

It was clear though that I really wasn’t feeling well rather than just cold, so we headed home, and I went off to bed.

Monday 1st October – Day 274

Project 365 2018 Week 40

The only photo I took all day.  My son bought himself a Mallard mug yesterday with the proceeds of some toy sales.  It’s for his milk now apparently.

I knew work were short-staffed so I went in, did what needed doing and came home to bed.  Picked my son up from school and then got his Dad to do the Cubs run as they were meeting at our local fire station for the evening.

He had a great time and got to aim the water hose at the training tower.  This is the boy who would go anywhere near the hose on his first visit with school a couple of years ago.

Tuesday 2nd October – Day 275

Project 365 2018 Week 40

My son was going on a school trip to Warwick Castle.  I was meant to be going as a parent helper, but I got a message later yesterday saying I wasn’t going to be needed.  My son was disappointed, but to be honest, I was so relieved as I felt really rough.  Dropped him at school and waited to wave him off on the coach, before heading home to the warm and a cuppa on the sofa.  Not a productive day.

But my son had a great day and finally got to see the Trebuchet working!  In all the years it’s been there, we’ve never seen it operating, so he was really happy.

Wednesday 3rd October – Day 276

Project 365 2018 Week 40

Not sure if this one is coming down with something.  He was very quiet after school and went straight to sleep at bedtime.

Thursday 4th October – Day 277

Project 365 2018 Week 40

Thankfully I woke up feeling slightly more human.  The duvet thief had got in with me during the night so I wasn’t sure how he’d be feeling this morning, but he was up and about as bright as a button.  This morning he was pretending to be a knight and was defending the kitchen from invaders (me).  I’m not quite sure how his sword isn’t in this shot.

A more productive day for me at last.

Friday 5th October – Day 278

Project 365 2018 Week 40

My son was really anxious about going to school.  In fact it took me a while to get him out of the door, and even then he stuffed Biff the worry eater into his backpack.  He would be handing the Star of Week medal he’d won last week on to this week’s recipient in assembly and for some reason he was dreading it.  His best friend and I tried to reassure him.  He wasn’t convinced.

I made banana bread after work and hoped it would cheer my son up after school.  It did and he’d got through assembly in one peace.

I had an assistant with my jigsaw, although I’m not sure he was actually that helpful!

Saturday 6th October – Day 279

Project 365 2018 Week 40

With it pouring down outside we decided to have a home day.  Caught up on a programme about walks on old railway lines that my son loves and then have spent most of the day playing with his Geomag Mechanics set we’ve been sent for review.

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. Sorry to hear you were unwell this week, I also had a couple of rotten days. Eddie’s class visited the Warwick castle two years ago, and I was a helper. Still shudder at too much responsibility of looking after silly children who were totally oblivious to any danger, jumping and pushing on the castle ramparts. There was one area, where a child could easily fall through the broken arrow slits. Brewster in a puzzle box made me chuckle, he is the king of the house, isn’t he?
    We are having a home day today as well.

  2. Glad you’re feeling better. That geomag stuff looks good. I need to get back into jigsaws again. Think I’ve got one half made in my puzzle case from ages ago!

  3. Glad you are feeling better, and phew at getting out of the school trip. Glad son enjoyed the day though.Well done to him on the cub trip as well.
    Not done a jigsaw in years but looks like cat is scrutinising closely to see if he could fit any pieces….lol

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
