Project 365: Week 34

After the photo opportunities of a week in Padstow, this week was always going to look a bit boring. (And I think I made it even more boring with that negative attitude!) I’m relying too much on photos of flowers this week. How will I cope in autumn and winter when there are no flowers to photograph?

Anyway, here’s our week in pictures…

Day 229 – Sunday 17th August – I was pleased to see this plant had flowered when we got back from holiday. I wasn’t sure it was even going to have flowers.

Day 230 – Monday 18th August – my husband took the kids up Snowdon (again!)Β this weekend, so I got them in training today with a long walk up the hill.

Day 231 – Tuesday 19th August – another flower from our garden. I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s one of the new flowers we planted a few weeks ago.

Day 232 – Wednesday 20th August – the kids and I joined in with Loom to the Moon and made this long chain of loom bands.

Day 233 – Thursday 21st August – I was out working in the morning, so my kids had to make their own entertainment. I was very surprised when my eldest and daughter decided to work together and bake some scones. I don’t think Paul and Mary would be impressed, but they tasted nice enough.

Day 234 – Friday 22nd August – the kids set off for Snowdon and I was left all on my own! Continuing the theme of loom bands and creativity, these are my younger son’s loom bands. Apart from the two cat charms, they are all different designs!

Day 235 – Saturday 23rd August – I did lots of work as it’s been difficult to work with the kids at home. My only company was this little one and her friend.

  1. That’s a lot of loom bands. Looks like he is setting up a shop there.

  2. You guys are making Snowdon look so easy!! I almost want to do it myself (almost). Love your loomband collection and variety of designs!

    • Thanks! My son is very talented with the loom bands! My kids are amazing, they really do make Snowdon look easy, but it’s not that easy at all.

  3. Never boring if there is a photo of a guinea pig. Guinea pigs are epic. (as my son would say.) Also I have to say they are the most interesting loom bands I have ever seen, and I am wearing 2 loom band bracelets on my wrist as I type. Who knew you could make a snake with a crocodile’s head from loom bands. And with eyelashes. genius.

    • Thanks very much πŸ™‚ You’ve made me feel better about my photos now. I must say the guinea pig and the final loom band pic did seem to cheer the collection up a little bit!

  4. Love the flower shots. What a great idea for the loom bands. I usually find ours have just been left laying around the place! #365

    • Thanks! I can always rely on my garden when I’m short of inspiration! (Although not for much longer, I guess!) Collect up all those dropped loom bands and start looming to the moon!

  5. That’s a huge loom, well done to the kids. Also I think Paul and Mary should be proud!

    • Thanks, we were all really pleased with the big loom band, and it kept them out of mischief as a bonus! Thanks for your kind words re Paul and Mary! πŸ™‚

  6. So impressed you’ve been up Snowdon (more than once)! and those scones look DELICIOUS! When they’ve figured out how we can zap food to each other… Consider this my order <3

    • Ha ha, order is noted! My kids are amazing. This year they’ve done Snowdon twice (three times for my eldest) and walked part of the Cotswold Way – and we’re not one of those hiking kind of families. They just like a challenge and always rise to it.

  8. Loving the loom band stand. Mine have given up with them now, not so imaginative!

    • They’ve got lots of other stuff to occupy them! Doing loom bands at least keeps my son away from the Xbox!

  9. The flower pictures are lovely, but it’s true it’s easier to find pictures generally in the summer I think. I find it harder when H is back at school and it’s getting dark at hometime.

    • Yuk! I hate to think of it getting dark at home time πŸ™ My pictures will be REALLY boring then!

    • Thanks very much πŸ™‚ Looming has taken off in a big way at our house!

  10. the down turn in the weather hasnt helped either i dont think.
    The view from the top of that hill is magnificent well worth the trek up there. x

    • The weather has certainly been miserable these last few days. I love walking up that hill – good exercise and great views πŸ™‚ x

  11. Wonderful selection of photos this week. My kids also got caught up in the loom craze in the US where it’s very popular too πŸ™‚

    • Thanks very much πŸ™‚ I think the loom bands have been huge everywhere!

  12. It’s so wonderful to climb a big hill like that and see the view from the top, once you reach the summit you feel like you’re the king of the world. That’s an amazing collection of loom bands, and well done on looming that chain for Skye.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365, there’s a new one live now.
