Project 365 2015: Week 5

I’ve had lots of work this week, which is obviously a good thing. The only downside is that it doesn’t make for very interesting pictures! My options are fairly limited to pictures of the actual work or photos in the garden.

So here’s our week in pictures…

Day 25 – Sunday 25th January – I got myself a shredder for client’s paperwork and was pleased to have shredded enough to keep the guinea pigs warm!

Day 26 – Monday 26th January – I love taking a photo at sunset! It’s nice that the sunsets are getting very slightly later, too.

Day 27 – Tuesday 27th January – the first photo I shared this year was of a daffodil shoot. They’ve grown a lot in four weeks and now have buds! Roll on, spring!

Day 28 – Wednesday 28th January – after the wall being smashed down, we now have a few weeks until we get our new kitchen. We currently have lots of holes in the wall and ceiling!

Day 29 – Thursday 29th January – I couldn’t remember if we had crocuses in our garden, but I spotted these hiding.

Day 30 – Friday 30th January – we went to see the Levellers (yes, again!), but this was a bit different – a documentary followed by an acoustic set. (One day I hope to have a phone which takes decent photos in poor light!)

Day 31 – Saturday 31st January – my daughter drew this medieval settlement for her homework. It’s not the drawing I’m impressed with, so much as the little notes around the edge explaining what everything is.

  1. Oooh spring is coming, I’m loving the days getting longer. Hope you had a brilliant time watching the Levellers! Takes me ages to work up the motivation to shred stuff but once I get going I can never stop πŸ™‚

    • The Levellers were brilliant, thanks! I’ve never shredded stuff before, but found I enjoy doing it! I’m shredding stuff that should go in the recycling box, just for the fun of it!

  3. Shredding, what a joyful task! I’ve broken a few shredders by getting too enthusiastic! And love the sunsets we’ve had this week, make up for the gloomy days. #project365

    • Glad it’s not just me that feels this way about shredding! I never did it in my old job, so didn’t realise how therapeutic it was!

  4. Oh wow, your crocuses are doing well, don’t think any of ours are up yet. We do have a few snow drops. Your daughters settlement is rather impressive, hope she gets good feedback from school #365

    • Thanks very much, I hope she does too! We haven’t got any snowdrops and just the one small cluster of crocuses. It’s so lovely to have them πŸ™‚

  5. Splendid picture of the medieval settlement! I’ve seen crocuses in town, but none yet in our garden, only the very first snowdrops. Beautiful sunset.

  6. Love your signs of spring in the garden – I must go out and see if any of my bulbs are sprouting yet. We are having nice HWK assignments lately and currently constructing a Saxon village! Levellers night looks good πŸ™‚

    • A Saxon village sounds fun! The Levellers night was amazing. I can’t believe how well all our bulbs are doing, it’s lovely to see.

  7. I do like the map of the settlement. It’s the sort of thing that brings history to life for children. We use our shredded paper on the compost bin, it adds the right ingredients to the mix apparently when you are putting in lots of kitchen waste like us.

    • Thanks very much, I love the settlement picture too! I’m using my shredded paper as guinea pig bedding. I used to mix cardboard in with our compost, but gave up composting about five years ago after we got a rat in the compost bin! The council collect our food waste though, so we don’t have much stuff going to waste.

  8. Loving your signs of spring. I shall be keeping an eye out on the bank of the brook this week, last year the daffodils sprouted fairly early there. Also, I am tempted to get a shredder myself just because.

    • There is so much fun to be had with a shredder! It’s so nice to see the flowers coming through – I can’t wait for spring!

      Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much. I loved the Levellers as a teenager too – and still love them now!

  9. I have not seen the first sign of spring flowers in our garden yet, but lovely to see yours. Glad you enjoyed the levellers and that is very impressive homework from your young lady

  13. nice to see all the shoots coming through. Spring may well have sprung.
    That is a fab settlement picture, I am well impressed.
    I am sure the holes in the walls and ceiling will be worth it soon, I would love a new kitchen.
