Project 365 2021: Week Twenty Eight

This week has been a bit of a nightmare. The lurgy has hit our house! We have done a PCR test – negative, but still have two out of three kids isolating thanks to positive cases in their respective bubbles. The 19th July is “freedom day” but I have to admit that in some ways I am feeling uncomfortable, much as I am hoping to get back to normal. Cases continue to rise and some news channels are now saying that if it keeps escalating then we will be back in lockdown in 5 weeks. I am so glad we …

Project 365 2020 Week 28 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 17

I am not sure whether to title my posts lockdown anymore, as it really does feel like everything is almost back to normal. At work they took away all the floor arrows, the one way system and the queuing system. We are still manning the door and counting people in and out but we have upped the number of people allowed in the shop.

Iron age roundhouse

Project 366 2016 – Week Twenty Eight

This week started well at home, with a barbecue to celebrate our new patio. We finished off making S’Mores – the perfect after dinner treat.

This was the kids penultimate week at school before the summer holidays and it is starting to tell as they are getting ratty and tired. Kian also started his job this week and has volunteered to work everyday!

We have spent most of the week at home, taking care of bits and bobs around the house, although we did build a sandpit for the kids next to the new patio.

Saturday was a very busy day with the school fayre, where the kids got to show off the iron age roundhouse they have been building, a 40th birthday party in the afternoon and my nieces birthday party in the evening. Lets just say we were all exhausted by the end of the day!

Here is my week in pictures:

Week 28

Project 365 2015 – Week 28

We started this week with our final birthday of the “birthday month” – hubby’s birthday.  Sadly he was working but I organised a surprise barbecue for the evening and Eliza was on hand to help him blow out his candles. Other than that it has been a week of two halves.  Eliza came down with a sickness bug that has been going around the school.  I thought we had got away with it as all the children I look after had it a couple of weeks ago but Eliza had to do it her own way! Thursday was our 10th …
