Project 365 2019 Week 25 Day 167 – 173
Sunday 16th June – Day 167
Father’s Day. We’d been invited down to the Watercress Line for the day to enjoy their War on the Line themed event. We had a lovely day up until it became obvious that Daddy P has developed an allergy/intolerance to Strawberry jam.
Monday 17th June – Day 168
Work for me in the morning and a very hormonal son came out of school in the afternoon. The view as he stormed off ahead of me. Joy.
Tuesday 18th June – Day 169
A blog working day for me, I’ve lost my mojo with it at the moment which isn’t ideal. After school, my son was back to his happy self, and I baked us a cake. Daddy P had a section of it plain and then I added strawberry jam to the rest of it.
This is the closest we’ve got to happy cat families. It didn’t last long before Paddington wanted to get too close to Brewster.
Wednesday 19th June – Day 170
Another day, another Lego creation made before school.
A busy day as I went straight from work to get my hair done. It was a month overdue being cut as I’d cancelled an appointment when my bestie’s partner was killed. From there it was straight to school pick up, quick snack stop and then Paddington needed to go to the vets for his second round of injections. Thankfully he coped with the experience much more calmly than last time.
Thursday 20th June – Day 171
The I hate technology day. A client had mentioned an issue with photos not loading on a post on Wednesday and we’d put it down to an issue their end, but this morning it became clear that the issue was with the blog and posts published since Wednesday morning.
So three hours later and I’d got nowhere with my host who basically washed their hands of the issue. I know nothing so stalemate. Really not helping me stay in love with blogging at the moment. There is too much else going on to have to worry about issues on the blog that I don’t know how to fix.
My son came home from school really upset. He’d been told that as he was fast, he’s going to be racing against the Year Five’s in Sports Day next week. So he’s gone from finally being really excited about the day, to not wanting to go to school again. Great.
Friday 21st June – Day 172
Voluntary reading before school! I’ll take anything. My son was still upset about having to race against old kids next week so I wrote a letter to his teacher making him aware of his feelings and also the nightmare I’ve had getting him to even be involved with the event over the years! Fingers crossed the issue is resolved.
A busy morning at work, a quick trip to the shops and then home to face the blog. I tried a suggestion my host had emailed overnight to fix the blog, it didn’t work. I just thought I’d try and write a new post today and see what happened. It worked. But the two old posts are knackered. Something to try and sort out over the weekend.
Text from school to tell me my son had had a knock at school, turns out it was a nosebleed. He had an argument with one of the bushes in the playground.
It sounds as if my uncle’s cancer treatment has been totally messed up so he’s in the hands of hormone treatment for the time being.
Saturday 22nd June – Day 173
After a quiet morning at home, we headed over to Stowe for the afternoon. We had a pre-teen protest about leaving the house, but as soon as we got out of the car, our tour guide returned and took control of our visit. He was soon in full flow, coming up with all sorts of stories about Lord Cobham, love his imagination. We ended our visit looking out at the lake, coming up with all sorts of ideas that you could use a stick for.
