Project 365 2019 Week 1 Day 1 – 5
Tuesday 1st January – Day 1
New Years Day and a really chilled one for us. The day was spent building Lego and just relaxing, which has been the general order for the holidays. Daddy P hasn’t been around much, but when he has, he’s also needed some down time.
I cooked roast duck for dinner which was delicious.
Wednesday 2nd January – Day 2
Back to work for me and it was fairly busy. Headed home to some domestic chores and realised I was overdue to update my new diary for the year. Working has also made me realise how little time we’re going to get for school holiday adventures this year.
Thursday 3rd January – Day 3
We headed down to Cliveden for the day with Emma and her son N. We’ve not been for a couple of years so it gave us the perfect opportunity to get another stamp in my son’s National Trust passport.
The boys were often running on ahead, so it gave Emma and I chance to natter. I think we’ll all sleep well tonight.
Friday 4th January – Day 4
A really chilly morning. I went out to work early so I could defrost the car windscreen (mine has a unique feature of freezing on the inside as well as the outside), only to find that the battery was dead. Thankfully Daddy P was at home and had some jump leads. He managed to get the car started and I got it to the garage before walking on to work. My next door neighbour’s van had also died overnight, so it must have been much colder than we’d thought.
A busy morning at work for me once I’d got there. The garage was fab, and had my car sorted by the time I’d finished work. I’d hoped that my son might have tidied up his toys by the time I got home, but no such luck. He did look through some of his toy boxes this afternoon, but only one thing didn’t go back in. I’ll have to do a ruthless cull when he’s back at school I think.
We were thinking of something to do tomorrow, we both love Whipsnade Zoo, so I converted some Tesco Club Card points to Days Out vouchers and it’s going to cost us 85p to go tomorrow. Result!
Saturday 5th January – Day 5
We headed off to Whipsnade Zoo so we were there when it opened. It’s one of our favourite places to visit and my son always sets the route. No surprises that he made a beeline to see his giraffes. It was really cold but we still enjoyed our day, got to see the tiger cubs have their lunch (they’ve grown so much!) and I persuaded my son to stand by the cheetah statue. Now I need to look through my photos and find the same shot from when he was much younger.
