Project 365 2021 – Week Forty

This week I finally got my car back after its MOT fail. I cannot say I enjoyed doing battle with the bus as it is so unreliable, but it seems to be cheaper than running my old car. There have been a number of COVID cases in Eliza and Sebby’s school this week, so we have all started doing Lateral Flow Tests again, to be safe. Thankfully we are all clear so far, but Sebby is a close contact so we are keeping an eye on him. Here is our week: Sunday 3rd October Before the pandemic, Isaac and Eliza …

Project 365 2020 Week 41 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 30

I can almost feel another lockdown coming. Apparently Coronavirus cases doubled in a week in England to more than 17,000 a day, although we still seem to be OK here in Dorset at the moment, although it is steadily creeping up. All reports are now saying that the virus is out of control and Scotland has already locked back down, so I feel it is only a matter of time. I am trying to not to worry, but have spent the week feeling out of sorts and trying to avoid the news again. Here is our week: Sunday 4th October …

It has been an interesting week and we are feeling a bit down, probably as we had isolation, Boris’ announcements and then the weather was so rubbish that we have not been able to go out.

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 40

SHATTERED!!!! That pretty much describes how I have felt all week as it has been full of preparations for Blog On in Winchester. Pretty much everything has been organised and ready for weeks, but there is always that last minute worry that something is going to go wrong and we did have a couple of fires to fight but I think we well in the end. Last weekend I took the small children on the Watercress Line steam trains whilst Hubby and Kian travelled to North Wales to go to Zip World which by all accounts was amazing! On Monday …
