Project 365 2019 Week 45 Day 302 – 308
Sunday 3rd November – Day 302
We headed up to Birmingham for the day to spend time with my niece and her partner. The weather was perfect for a walk around the city centre, my son wanted to see the tram roadworks. After grabbing some lunch we headed to SEALIFE, somewhere we’ve not been since my son was little. We finally got to see the penguins there and got totally freaked out by the garden eels.
Monday 4th November – Day 303
Back to school and work. The weekends go too quickly.
We had some fun after school with a review that UPS should have delivered last week. They made us both laugh.
Paddington was doing his normal trick of following us to school again!
Tuesday 5th November – Day 304
Look at that tail!
A busy workday for me and shopping after school with my son. Our local fireworks display isn’t on until Saturday, we were surprised by how few went off locally in the evening though.
Wednesday 6th November – Day 305
Double job day and I was frazzled by the end of the day. A little light relief after school as we played a game that we’d been sent for review. My flag memory is not what it used to be!
Thursday 7th November – Day 306
Paddington is eight months old today. He’s such a character and we love him lots. He spent most of the scrapping with Brewster in the garden and then coming indoors for a snooze. Then this afternoon he decided to give Brewster some love with a full-on face wash and cuddle.
A menopausal moment for me as I tried to cook spaghetti bolognese without adding the mince that was staring me in the face.
Friday 8th November – Day 307
Blooming freezing! You’ll hear me write that a lot in the months ahead. Roll on Spring.
Job number one and lots of bank reconciliation, I still am rather amused that I actually like accounts work. I’d done some work for job two before school as I needed to pop into town and pick something up for my son’s birthday that was half price. I’d also noticed that a boutique I like has changed owners and had a sale on. They do some lovely tunic dresses that I’m a big fan of so I thought I’d see what they had. I came out with the bargain of the year, it’s my works Christmas party next month and I got this for £5!!!! and it’s not blue! Now to not eat cake for the next month.
Back home for some more job two work before school pick up.
My son was full of beans and happy it’s the weekend as he came out of school.
Saturday 9th November – Day 308
I’d won tickets to the Great British Model Railway Show at The British Motor Museum. It was something the menfolk were going to anyway so they were happy to get free tickets. I’d won two tickets and when I gave them my OH’s name for ticket pick up, they said they’d leave us three tickets so we could all go. You get free entry into the motor museum too, so we’re all happy. It was a good show, and we met a great photographer there and came home with a new addition for my son’s bedroom wall.
This evening we’re meant to be going to our local firework display but at the moment it’s pouring with rain.
What have you been up to this week?
