Project 365 2015 Week 36

The kids went back to school, in fact not just back to school – my younger son started grammar school, which we were all very excited about and all very proud of him. It’s not been the best week in terms of pictures, but it’s been a really big week for us.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 241 – Sunday 30th August – it was lovely nephew’s christening and my husband was godfather. All of my photos seem to have the kids in, apart from this one of Mr Men biscuits for tea! Biscuits, 365, Christening Day 242 – Monday 31st August – in preparation for going back to school, I brought back the screen time rules. So my daughter made her own entertainment and came down dressed as the Tiny Dancer from the John Lewis ad. So many people have said that she looks like the little dancer! Tiny Dancer, Daughter, John Lewis, 365 Day 243 – Tuesday 1st September – the football season is back and my son’s under 12s team had an evening friendly game. This stunning sky is completely unfiltered! Football, Sunset, Son Day 244 – Wednesday 2nd September – the day we’ve been waiting for for nearly a year – my son started grammar school! It was an informal, non-uniform day to ease them in gently. Starting school, Secondary school, Son, School bag, Guitar Day 245 – Thursday 3rd September – the big day! All three of the kids went back to school, we tested out our new school run and I remembered what it’s like to be at home on my own and working! (In case you’re wondering, those are size 10, size 7 and size 2.5.) School shoes, Back to school, 365 Day 246 – Friday 4th September – I’m struggling to get back into being at home on my own and working again, but no doubt I’ll get the hang of it again next week! Work, 365 Day 247 – Saturday 5th September – along with a lot of other bloggers, I’ve been blogging to raise awareness of the refugee crisis and what we can all do to #SaveSyriasChildren Save Syrias Children, Daughter, Refugees   TheBoyandMe's 365 Linky   This is a bloghop. Hop on over to see what others have been up to this week.

  1. Size 10? Wow! Let’s hope he stops growing soon 😉 Strange getting back into all the activities and school run again isn’t it? Love those Mr Men biscuits 🙂

    • Yep, size 10! I’m assuming he’ll grow at least another size. It is strange doing the school run, especially as it’s new for us.

  6. Loving the Mr Men biscuits. Size 10! That will get more difficult to buy for if he gets much bigger. Just had H measured and he was a 2, I think he’ll have biggish feet as his Dad has quite big feet.

    • Yes, I hope he doesn’t get much bigger than an 11! That’s definitely his last pair of kids’ shoes, as Clarks do school shoes up to a 10.

  7. Here’s hoping that all three of your children settle well into their new school year. The first time I saw John Lewis’s Tiny Dancer ad, I was convinced that it was your daughter and you were keeping a secret from everyone in the blogging community! She looks just like the girl featured in the ad and this photo is so adorable.

    • Thanks very much! So many people have told me how much my daughter looks like the girl in the ad, so we couldn’t resist recreating it!

  8. Those Mr Men biscuits look great! I was thinking the other day when I saw the John Lewis advert that she reminded me of your daughter.

    • It’s amazing how many people have said that – starting with my 2 year old nephew who asked his mummy if it was her 🙂

  18. Hope they’ve all enjoyed their first week back. First week for all three of mine this week, it’s been very strange being in the house on my own!
