Project 365 2021: Week Twenty Seven

It has been a big week of sport, with the Euro’s and Wimbledon this week. I follow the football, but it does get a bit much when sport is on every channel, all day. We have a couple of weeks reprieve now and then the Olympics start. In COVID news, cases are still on the increase but the government are pressing ahead with unlocking all restrictions and I am nervous. I want to get back to normal and have been fully vaccinated, but at the same time, I know people who have been very poorly recently and others still struggling …

Project 365 2020 Week 27 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 16

So, things have relaxed again and the 2 metre social distancing rule has been reduced to 1 meter+, although at work we are sticking with 2 metres. The weather has been rubbish this week, which has meant no visitors to our beaches and a much calmer week all in all. Today hairdressers have opened, with added PPE and I was lucky enough to get a hair appointment straight away, with the boys booked in for next week. Here is our week……… Sunday 28th June I worked all day and the shop was fairly busy, whilst my husband took the kids …

Project 366 2016 – Week Twenty Seven

This week started with some back breaking work, laying the patio and trying to get rid of all the dirt from where we laid it, but we finally have a patio that I have waited years for! Monday was Isaac’s sports day and I proudly watched as he won the long jump, which made me doubly proud as he was up against the tallest boy in the class (Isaac is the smallest). Tuesday was Hubby’s birthday and we celebrated after school with a trip to Pizza Hut for some dinner. Wednesday saw me heading to London for Asda’s Christmas in …

Project 365 2015 – Week 27

Birthday month is finally over with the last one today, Happy Birthday Hubby – finally back to being a year older! (We are the same age for just 2 weeks of the year and boy does he milk it!).

Hubby returned from the stag weekend away in Magaluf on Sunday a little bit lot broken so being ever the dutiful wife I dragged him to London to the preview of Shrek’s Adventure.  We caught up with my cousin Emma who joined us for all the fun, but sadly Abbey and Callan got lost and turned up too late to enjoy the tour. Safe to say there was a lot of snoring on the way back home from him and the kids as we didn’t get back to almost 10pm.

On Monday we took Sebby to see the Red Arrows leave Bournemouth Airport as they had been displaying at Goodwood Festival of speed.  I have never seen a little boy so excited and he was bouncing up and down in my arms as they took off three by three. They even waved back!

It is safe to say this week has been scorchio and the paddling pool that hubby picked up from work in the sale last year was finally inflated.  It is so large it took 8 hours to fill with water!

On Friday we had the biggest thunderstorm I have ever seen.  We stood outside and then at the windows for an hour watching it as the skies were literally alight constantly with lightning strikes.

Saturday we went to the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth and explored the Mary Rose, HMS Victory and many of their museums. We didn’t get to do it all but will be back very soon
