Project 365 2019 Week 50 Day 342 – 348
Sunday 8th December – Day 342
We visited the local Christmas Tree Festival in the afternoon. My son’s school decorates one of the trees and with the singing and music, it’s a magical way to feel festive. My OH’s parents are buried in the graveyard so we checked on their grave and my son wrote a card for them to hang on the memorial tree in the church. I thought my OH might start crying when he did that!
Monday 9th December – Day 343
Lego is going to feature heavily this week I think. My son loves his annual Lego advent calendar and all the little characters within it.
I got my son’s cake baked and iced all ready to add the train topper tomorrow.
We had the most amazing news this afternoon. I’d been dreading receiving new about my auntie, as we’d been told to expect the worst possible. But scans have proved that she hasn’t got cancer, and it hasn’t spread. Unbelievable. She’s still got problems, but treatable ones hopefully.
Tuesday 10th December – Day 344
My sn had me up bright and early so he could open his presents before school. Still can’t believe he’s actually 10 today. He had lots of Facetime, texts and calls over breakfast and I really was amazed that he wasn’t late for school.
All he’s wanted for ages is a Lego train set and to spend as much time as possible with his best friend on his birthday. I’d offered to take them out for dinner, but no, he wanted to max out on playtime instead.
He was shattered by bedtime and was asleep in minutes.
Wednesday 11th December – Day 345
My son really struggled to get up for school this morning. Double workday for me and then chill out time after school with more Lego building.
Thursday 12th December – Day 346
General Election day and it poured with rain all day, pretty much summed up my mood, especially when the exit polls showed the likely result as I went to bed.
Family in Canada sent my son a birthday card which arrived today along with a couple more map postcards for my collection!
Admin pain trying to cancel my OH’s car insurance renewal, why do these companies make it so difficult to cancel policies for someone who cannot get to the phone in ‘their’ working hours.
Friday 13th December – Day 347
Friday 13th just about sums up the election result as far as I’m concerned. I can’t see any positives from this result at all.
Anyway, on a happier note, it’s Christmas Jumper day and for the first time ever my son and I got to be twinnies. He was so thrilled by the idea which made me smile.
Hopefully sorted out the insurance issue after a conversation with someone sensible. No response to two tweets though.
Saturday 14th December – Day 348
The OH was working all day and my oldest friend came to visit us. She’s my son’s god mummy and after we’d had lunch and my son had made the Lego set she’d bought for his birthday we headed over to Stowe for a few hours. Obviously that meant we had to update his photo in his favourite tree shot.
