Project 365 2015 Week 52

We’ve made it to the end of the year! My second year of Project 365 and taking a photo every day. So here’s our week and a bit in pictures… Sunday 20th December – my daughter had two performances of the panto today. It felt like a long day without her. The rest of us went for a walk up the hill and tried to fly a kite! Monday 21st December – the weather has been so mild that the daffodils in the garden...

2015 – That was the year that was

So that’s 2015 done and dusted then. Where did that go to? Not much happened in 2015, did it? Oh, actually, maybe it did… The start of the year was all about the health woes.

When they stand on the stage, they stand in this perfect size...

She knew what she wanted to see and was especially desperate to go on the London Eye. She also loves staying in hotels and really wanted a stay in a nice hotel too. So my husband came up with the crazy idea of a Boxing Day trip to...

Christmas Day Parkrun

How did you start your Christmas Day? A 4am wake-up call from the kids or crawling out of bed at 9am with a hangover? Did you have a fry-up for breakfast or salmon and bucks fizz? After our 6am wake-up call and present unwrapping, we did the Parkrun! As soon as we heard that there was a Parkrun on Christmas Day, and that my daughter’s best friend and her family were doing it, we knew we would be doing it too. We’ve really...
