Project 365 2019 Week 2 Day 6 – 12
Sunday 6th January – Day 6
Brewster finally got some peace and quiet and the menfolk disappeared for a few hours to a model railway exhibition. I did a bit of work on the laptop and also enjoyed a little bit of time for myself.
Monday 7th January – Day 7
My son had an inset day but I still needed to go to work for a couple of hours, so his Dad had to keep an eye on him for me. I was hoping that some of his toys might have been tidied away while I was gone, but no such luck. But with a bit of assistance my son cracked on with this once I’d returned.
Later in the afternoon we were looking at his baby record book and reading about all the things he got up to before he turned four. He found the DVD in the back of the book we’d had done at my 4D scanning session, and for the first time ever we sat down to watch it.
We got everything ready for the morning before he went to bed. Back to school tomorrow.
Tuesday 8th January – Day 8
I was dreading this morning as for the last few weeks my son hasn’t woken up before 8am. But today he was up and full of beans at 6.45am. He wanted to show me his completed Lego Aircraft carrier he’s made. Can you tell he’s rather chuffed with himself.
His best friend was back with us for the walk to school. It really helps both of them, having the other, to get them to school in the morning without too many issues. Lovely to listen to their chatter on our walk.
Back to the blog for me, I’ve rarely looked at the laptop over the last couple of weeks and it’s been really nice to have a break. Of course, sods law meant I’d got issues with the blog this morning, one sorted by Zoe thankfully and the other was a hosting issue, so finally got back up and running.
Apparently today was the best day at school, ever!
Wednesday 9th January – Day 9
I stayed on later at work to talk through some ideas with my boss and I’m going to be acting on them starting from Friday, so a few extra hours each week for me, and hopefully some results to show for it.
Went shopping, bought lots of things, paid for furniture polish amongst the items but no idea where I put said polish. It must have dropped out of the bag/trolley before I got to the car as it’s nowhere to be found. OH did ask if I’d put it in the fridge. Not such a silly question with the way my brain is these days, but no, I hadn’t.
Picked my son up from school and he’d had another great day. They are having Science Week at school and have been doing lots of experiments with different teachers. He was full of it all and insisted we had a paper raft building competition as soon as we got home. It was lovely to see such enthusiasm.
Thursday 10th January – Day 10
Another cold day and freezing walk to school. I had some blog work to do and a couple of phone calls to make, both of which left me feeling rather rubbish that I wasn’t able to get to either person to give them a hug. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could teleport yourself around when needed. Nothing to be done but to wait for some results.
I had the joy of a Breast Cancer screening session in the afternoon, something you get invited to once you hit the age of 50. I’d actually had one when I was 39, but that was an emergency appointment and a total blur. All went well and I’ll get the results in a few weeks. I walked through the churchyard to get to the mobile unit, and checked on Daddy P’s parents graves whilst I was there.
My son had gone to his friend’s house straight from school so I didn’t have to worry about being late for school pick up. He’d had a nice time when I picked him up and another fun day at school.
Friday 11th January – Day 11
The only photo I took all day was of the new iron I bought. Nothing fancy as I don’t need something with bells and whistles, but my old iron was well and truly knackered and in need of replacing. Sailed through the ironing pile before work which made me realise how rubbish my old one had become.
Off to work and extra time as we brainstormed a few ideas and looked at different options for a few things.
My son enjoyed making different types of glue today apparently. He’s going to come down with a bump next week when school is back to normal, but it’s been lovely to see him so enthusiastic about this week.
Saturday 12th January – Day 12
We had a chilled start to the day and then walked into town which is something I’m trying to do more of with my son if we haven’t got to buy anything too heavy to carry back. He had money and book tokens from his birthday and Christmas burning a hole in his wallet, so we paid a visit to the toy shop and independent book store. A Lego and Playmobil sets and a book about steam trains were purchased and he’d brought his back pack with him so that he could carry them. Result.
I told him before his birthday that by the time he starts secondary school in a few years, he’ll be expected to cook us one meal a week. I want him to leave home and be able to at least be able to cook a few meals for himself. His father was clearly pampered and can’t/won’t cook anything. My son has clearly taken this in and asked if we could make pizzas from scratch for dinner. It’s a start! So we popped into the supermarket to get a few supplies and then round to Daddy P’s warehouse to collect a couple of other bits, before heading home.
He’s loved Science Week at school so much and when we got back from town he asked to get his volcano out and make a few eruptions. I got a small glass out too so he could see the reaction between the bicarb and vinegar really clearly. One happy boy, one smelly kitchen!
