Project 365 2021: Week Twenty One

The kids are in full wind-down mode for half term, although it only feels like 5 minutes since their last one. Kian has officially finished this year’s university, despite only having one week on campus. I really hope they refund some of the tuition fees as he only actually spent 3 months learning. Isaac had his parents evening and they are really happy with his progress. He has exams after half term to put them in sets them for next year, so he has some revising to do in the holidays. Here is our week: Monday 24th May We live …

This week there has been two test raves in Liverpool, with 3,000 people getting to visit with no social distancing and no masks as an experiement.

Sunday 17th May A work day for me as I managed to get an overtime shift on the checkouts. It was a steady day, lots of people buying barbecue bits as the …

Hello and welcome to this weeks update. We are finding the beginning of the week harder than the end, maybe because it is because the kids feel like it is back to earth with a bump after the weekend off. Sunday 3rd May A work day for me. The mood is quite low today. Some of the temps are on their last day. The youngsters are desperate to get back to college as are missing their friends and are fed up with being locked down. The older ones are worried about money and how they are going to get by. …

Blandford Food Festival

It appears to be festival season in Dorset at the moment and a couple of weeks ago we went to the very first Blandford Food Festival. Promising a vast array of local food producers and exciting activities for the kids to take part in, they were also raising money for Naomi House, which provides care and respite for life-limited children. The drive to Blandford from Wimborne is beautiful, especially this time of year and hubby insisted on taking some pictures whilst the road was clear. When we arrived we were impressed to find that the organisers had organised plenty of free …
