Project 365: Week 16

It’s the week we’d been waiting for – the week we went to Snowdon!

(Apologies, my aim for this week was to work out how to get my photos smaller on WordPress, but it seems I don’t have the knack. Sometimes I can do it and sometimes I can’t, I’ll keep trying!)

Day 103 – Sunday 13th April – my younger son had yet another rugby tournament in Bristol, but I stayed at home for my eldest’s training. You know the hill we keep walking up? That’s it there in the background!

Day 104 – Monday 14th April – one of the downsides of the school holidays is less opportunity to run! With a bit of solo parenting plus just having the kids at home, I went a whole eight days without running, so I had no qualms about running for a third consecutive day. My usual top was understandably not clean, so I went for this quirky one.

Day 105 – Tuesday 15th April – we travelled to the beautiful little town of Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia, ready to climb Snowdon the next day. The kids spent some time playing in the river.

Day 106 – Wednesday 16th April – the day we’d been waiting for – we climbed Snowdon! It wasn’t easy (more on that in a few days), but it was beautiful and we felt a great sense of achievement. I love this photo of my younger son skimming stones by the lake on the way up.

Day 107 – Thursday 17th April – we set off for home after another wander round the river in Betws-y-Coed. We left the river slightly earlier than planned after my daughter half fell in (I have no photos of this because I’m not cruel!).

Day 108 – Friday 18th April – my two younger children got the opportunity to be part of the ‘Flying squad’ for our local football team – waving flags and welcoming players before the League 2 game.

Day 109 – Saturday 19th April – as it’s Easter my son and husband had a week off football. We had a quiet day, so I just took some photos in the garden. I love this tulip – it’s the only one I have like it.

  2. Well done for getting to the top of Smowdon. It looks like it’s stunning up there! Can’t wait to read all about it.

    I usually go into the HTML vie in WordPress on my posts and amend the photo sizes manually (you should see the words “width” and “height” and I make mine 800 x 600. There’s a widget that let’s you optimise the size of pics too. I’ll have a look and let you know the name.

    • Thanks very much, all will be revealed next week. It wasn’t easy, but we made it!
      Thanks for advice re pictures. I seem to have lost the knack of scrolling – sometimes that box appears and other times I just can’t get to it!

    • Thanks very much, Erica. My son couldn’t resist skimming some stones. Yes, it was totally my daughter’s pride that got hurt! Just a pair of wet tights and shoes!

  3. Love the running too – I’m yet to venture out on my post physio run, really scared it will all go wrong again! Snowmen is an area I’ve yet to explore – it looks beautiful. I remember trying to sort pics on my blog and I ended up googling for tutorials to change code and HTML etc Good luck 🙂

    • Good luck, hope the first run goes OK. Just start really small! I hated it when I’d had physio and realised I could only run a mile afterwards. But I was able to build up pretty quickly. I seem to have trouble scrolling to sort my pictures!

  4. i like the big photos – mine are always large too so maybe that is why I am in favour of them!!
    well done on the Snowdon trek – i bet that felt amazing to complete it and what a view at the top with that huge lake. just fab xx

    • Thanks very much, Jenny. It did feel amazing, but it was harder than I expected. Glad you like the big photos! I have big photos on all of my other posts, but on a 365 I’d ideally have them a bit smaller as they are so photo-heavy. One day I’ll work out how to get it right consistently!

  7. The tulip macro shot is wonderful, great depth of field in it. However that lake photograph is magnificent, think it needs to go on the wall most definitely!

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    • Thanks very much, the lake photo is definitely my favourite this week!

  8. I have so many fond memories of Betws-y-Coed, went on several school trips there with my Primary School as a kids and then later again with my parents. I too have fallen in the river there so your daughter isn’t alone in that one 😉

    I still haveb’t climbed Snowdon, it is on my bucket list.

    • Betws-y-Coed is such a beautiful place! I’d never heard of it before. I do feel pleased I’ve climbed Snowdon, but it was hard! I hope you get to do it sometime.
