Project 365 2019 Week 3 Day 13 – 19
Sunday 13th January – Day 13
We do like to get out of the house at this time of year if at all possible, especially if that entails getting outdoors and making use of our National Trust membership. We’d decided on a long drive up to Shugborough until I noticed that the house isn’t open at this time of year. So I made a new list of possibilities and let Daddy P decide where we should head.
We ended up at Lacock and had a lovely time exploring the grounds, Abbey and village. It’s somewhere we’ll definitely revisit too as there’s a lot of parkland to explore. Our visit also made my son’s day, as it’s possible to get three different stamps at Lacock as you go from one area to another. That saw him finish his first passport and start his second.
When I took this shot, I just thought, wow, what a grown up face! Scary.
I’m not sure why but on the way home I started to feel really sick and unwell. Thankfully I wasn’t actually sick but my ‘doctor’ looked after me when we got home and covered me over with a blanket.
Monday 14th January – Day 14
On of those days. I got dressed ready for work but by the time I actually got downstairs I knew I’d be going nowhere. I still felt awful, although this did make me smile. My son made me two hearts, one of which he cut in half so he could take one half to school with him. He can be very sweet when he wants to be. I got my son to school and then went straight to bed. Apart from a number of nuisance calls I slept for three hours, still felt rubbish but not quite as bad as earlier in the day. My son’s best friends Mum bought him home for me and Daddy P took charge of Cubs drop off and pick up.
My son came home with another Cubs badge that hadn’t arrived before Christmas.
Tuesday 15th January – Day 15
Still rather worn out but getting there. Got my son to school and after a cuppa decided to crack on and get my tax return completed. One day I won’t leave in until the last minute, but not this year! Once that was done, I opened the blog and discovered that after six years I’ve reached number 10 in Tots100 ranking of UK parent bloggers. I’m not very good at selling myself but I was rather chuffed with this after feeling rather pants.
My son was walked home from school by his bestie and his Mum, normal service will resume tomorrow. Time to get his homework done.
Wednesday 16th January – Day 16
Thank god for Brewster! as it appears this was the only photo I took today. always happiest when he’s fast asleep in my bed when my son is at school.
I was back to school walks and work, was shattered by the end of the day but definitely on the mend thankfully.
Thursday 17th January – Day 17
The duvet thief is back and he was making ‘sausage rolls’ out of the duvet this morning apparently! The first time I looking out of the window this morning it was raining, ten minutes later, I looked out and it was snowing. What! I hate snow, especially when I’m not prepared for it. Thankfully it didn’t last long, but it was an icy, cold walk to school this morning.
Friday 18th January – Day 18
Filling in his Woodland Trust year book was more appealing than reading his school reading book this morning.
It was really chilly again this morning but thankfully it warmed up during the day enough for all the ice to disappear.
Saturday 19th January – Day 19
No snow this morning – phew. Thought I was on the mend but feeling rubbish again today, probably not helped by trying to get my son to do his My Maths homework. Homemade pizzas for lunch, he went for a three cheese option and even added a few olives to his creation today. Small steps.
