Project 365 2021: Week Twenty Nine

I am relieved to say that our household remained COVID free after 10 days of isolation, although both Sebby and my husband succumbed to summer colds. Work has been a real challenge as we are really short staffed with lots of people isolating and a lack of deliveries for the same reason. This week has all been about the countdown to the summer holidays and I am relieved the kids have now broken up, although slightly worried about covering childcare as most of the local holiday clubs are fully booked already. Here is our week: Monday 19th July My husband …

Project 365 2020 Week 29 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 18

This week has been a bit up and down for me, with worries about work and finances. We have had emails that the kids swimming will be resuming from 25th July, which means we will have to start paying the fees again, even if they cannot attend the available sessions. I am still waiting for a timetable, but with my husband and Kian working full time and my hours I have a feeling it is going to be a struggle. The announcement that everyone will have to wear masks in shops from 24th July surprised me, it feels a bit …

Project 366 2016 – Week Twenty Nine

Finally we reached the end of term on Wednesday and the kids are now officially on their summer break! We started the week at Larmer Tree Festival, having fun with face paints, dressing up, bubbles and bouncing around on a space hopper. If you follow my blog then you will know Isaac doesn’t have the best track record at school, but on Monday he was celebrated for Respect after turning his behaviour around, making us very very proud parents. Tuesday was the hottest day of the year so far and I found myself at Upton Country Park with Sebby for …

#Vloject52 2016 – Week Twenty Nine

Hello and welcome to #Vloject52 I love taking videos of the kids and #Vloject52 grew from there. Video is a great way of remembering their funny words, silly dances and achievements and #Vloject52 is a weekly linky where you have to capture at least one short video and link up. The videos should be under a minute long and can be on platforms such as instagram, vimeo, vine, flipagram, G+ and YouTube and all I ask that anyone linking up also takes some time to view and comment on other videos that have been linked up. Last week Are We …

Project 365 2015 – Week 29

We are well and truly on the countdown to the school holidays now, with just two more days to go. If I am honest I don’t really see the point of them being there now as apparently for the last week they have just been watching films and playing games. Is Alvin and the Chipmunk educational, really? Last weekend was a Thomas the Tank Engine filled spectacular.  On the Saturday we visited Thomas Land and Sunday saw us head for the bright lights of London for the premier of the new Thomas movie; Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure. We …
