Project 366 2020 Week 50 Day 341-347 The week my son turned Eleven and Paddington came home for the final time.
Sunday 6th December – Day 341
We went for a circular walk around Souldern and Aynho and discovered a deer park we didn’t know existed. Another example of footpaths on our doorstep showing up something new. I wished I’d taken my longer lens with me. Next time!
Monday 7th December – Day 342
Back to school for my son – relief all round.
It’s so cold! Really not ideal weather to be stood out in the cold queueing for over half an hour for the post office after work, but needs must. When I got home and thawed out, I cracked on with wrapping my son’s birthday presents and hiding them away.
After school, my son was busy Lego building again.
Tuesday 8th December – Day 343
I went shopping first thing and then got on with some blog work in the morning. After lunch, I went for my flu jab. A first for me, but this year anyone over 50 is eligible and it seemed silly not to have it. The process was really quick too. I’d also had a phone call from the vet to tell me that Paddington was back, so I went to pick him up before my son got out of school. I wasn’t expecting the pawprints, such a lovely, thoughtful touch.
Wednesday 9th December – Day 344
School and workday. Once my son was tucked up in bed I got busy blowing up balloons, putting up banners and bringing all of his presents and cards downstairs ready for the morning.
Thursday 10th December – Day 345
My son’s Eleventh birthday and he’d been awake in the night and up since 4 am so I was a little bleary-eyed. He seemed fine! He’d built the Lego set my brother bought him before he’d gone to school.
After school, it was more Lego building and lots of Facetime and Skype calls before we headed down to Prezzo for dinner. He’d had a lovely day.
Friday 11th December – Day 346
Christmas Jumper Day and a rare opportunity for us to twin it! It feels rather chilly still.
Saturday 12th December – Day 347
Today I’ve been the page-turner as my son built the Lego Crocodile my bestie bought him for his birthday/Christmas present. It’s taken him a few hours to complete and it’s rather impressive. We took a break to plant up Paddington’s memorial garden and have placed it where my son can see it from his bedroom window and we can all see it easily from the living room.
We’re off to the Lap Land Silverstone experience later, a surprise present for my son I bought as soon as tickets were released. I also won an Indian takeaway for two from our local takeaway place, so picking that up when we get back.
That’s our week in a nutshell. What have you been up to?
