Project 365 2019 Week 41 Day 279 – 285
Sunday 6th October – Day 279
We were invited to spend the day at Bletchley Park, home of the code breakers. My son is learning about WWII at the moment so the visit was perfectly timed.
Monday 7th October – Day 280
Paddington is seven months old today and we’re starting to see a slight thawing in relations with Brewster.
Tuesday 8th October – Day 281
My son has been inspired by our visit to Bletchley Park to create his own code for us to break.
I made a caramel apple crumble for pudding and it was delicious – how have I not discovered Carnation Caramel before!
Wednesday 9th October – Day 282
A rainy start to the day and Paddington decided to give me kittens. He’s so much more adventurous than Brewster and this morning he decided he’d walk to school with us. We managed to shoo him back about halfway, but when I was walking home there he was waiting for me at the end of an alleyway which leads to the road. At that time of day, there are so many silly drivers trying to drop kids off, it could be a recipe for disaster. I had to scoop him up, carry him home and deposit him in the back garden before going to work.
After I’d finished the second job I tried to sort out my glove box issue. I’d found a supposed fix on the internet, but it didn’t work. Rang the garage and they didn’t seem fazed and will sort it out for me on Monday before sorting the brakes discs and MOT.
We pass the Gargoyle house every day and today after school my son decided it was about time he had his photo taken with one of them.
Thursday 10th October – Day 283
A busy workday for me but apparently I’m also there to open and close the patio door a million times a day to let one or both cats in and out.
It was wear something yellow to school to raise awareness of mental health issues. This photo is the I’m in a foul mood Mummy and am storming off ahead of you. It was a warning of what was to come when we got home. It was not a good evening.
Friday 11th October – Day 284
A busy day for me workwise and thankfully my son was in a slightly better mood after school today.
As Paddington gets older and bigger it’s not always easy to work out who is who.
Saturday 12th October – Day 285
The weather was rubbish and my son was on a mission. We opened the door to the spare room and decided to tackle the mess. He decided it was time to put his wooden train track, castle, airport and fire engine up in the loft ready for his own children (he’s a planner like his mother!). He was also ready to sort through the mountain of toys and games he doesn’t play with. He’s agreed that I can sell them and we’ll use the money to buy something he really does want. Progress. We can now see the carpet, I’m not even kidding. But I do have a stack of things behind the sofa now to get rid of – Facebook selling sites are not my favourite places.
I made a red velvet loaf with frostings and berries as a dessert. It’s lush but it didn’t turn out red so no idea why not.
