Project 365 2015 Week 9

It’s been another miserable week, with far too many trips to the hospital. But at least the weather has been warmer and spring is just around the corner. Here’s our week in pictures… Day 53 – Sunday 22nd February – I do like to take pictures of sunrises and sunsets! This particular sunrise, snapped on my phone, with no filters, was one of my most liked pictures on Instagram ever. Day 54 – Monday...

Surviving half-term

School holidays should be about fun and relaxation. We didn’t have much planned for half-term. We never do. But that’s the way we like it. We haven’t once been on holiday during February half-term, my husband doesn’t take days off work and we don’t tend to have days out as I’m a crap driver and nervous traveller. It’s just me and the kids. Relaxing. Pottering around near home. Taking it easy....
