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! Kite, Son, 365 Monday 21st December – the weather has been so mild that the daffodils in the garden actually have buds on them! I wouldn’t expect to see these until February or possibly even March. Daffodil, 365, Garden, Winter Tuesday 22nd December – the endless mum taxi has taken its toll on the cleanliness of my car, as my cheeky younger son pointed out. Car, 365 Wednesday 23rd December – largely a boring day of Christmas food shopping. I captured this on my morning run. Sunrise, 365 Thursday 24th December – as we’re hosting Christmas at our house this year, we started getting prepared the night before. Christmas, Table, Kitchen, 365 Friday 25th December – Merry Christmas! The kids were very pleased with their emoji cushions. Christmas day, Son, Daughter, 365 Day 360 – Saturday 26th December – even though we’ve been very busy with the panto over the last few weeks and probably needed a break, we decided to go on a flying visit to London.

Day 361 – Sunday 27th December – one of my Christmas presents from my mum was this Shaun the Sheep figurine – Buttercup. He makes a good friend for Shaun on the Cob.

Day 362 – Monday 28th December – we went for a walk in Tewkesbury. The rivers are looking rather flooded, but it’s nowhere near the houses.

Day 363 – Tuesday 29th December – today was the day my whole family finally got to watch the pant0 – both of my sons, my parents, my sister, brother-in-law and little niece and nephew, plus my husband and me of course! It was my fourth time watching my daughter and I’m still not tired of it. The whole family was so impressed and so proud of her.

Day 364 – Wednesday 30th December – torrential rain all day. These are my daughter’s only shoes, apart from her school shoes and her running trainers. They aren’t even slightly waterproof. The poor girl’s socks were wringing wet. It’s ironic because she loves shoes and I’m always being told by my husband not to buy her any. I realise I haven’t bought her any in well over a year.

Day 365 – Thursday 31st December – I did something I never thought I’d do – bought Christmas cards and wrapping paper in the sale ready for next year! I spent £8 on £32.50 worth of stuff.

Happy new year!

So that’s it for Project 365 2015, but I’m not stopping there. See you next week for Project 366…

  2. Your kitchen looks lovely – fab colours. I’m similar with shoes for my girl – always get caught out with a change n the weather. Looks like your Christmas was lovely, if a bit busy, and I will definitely be seeing you here next year!

    • Thanks very much, the kitchen has been brilliant! I’m so aware of being told off for buying her too many shoes that I’ve gone the other way! My eldest wrecks his and has a new pair of trainers every three months!

  3. I do love your kitchen and the table looks lovely. Glad everyone got to see the Panto, do you get a break when she finishes or is it straight into another production for her? Have a great New Year x

    • Thanks very much, I was very pleased with the table! We bought everything separately, so just had to hope it matched, luckily it did!
      No more productions after the panto, sadly. My daughter is going to find it hard. 🙁 x

  4. I did a double take on that kite, it looked like a dragon! Hope the shoes dry out!

    Happy New Year!

    • It’s a dragon kite! It looks fabulous when it gets up, but we didn’t manage more than about five seconds! The shoes are still wet…
      Happy new year!

  5. Wow Sarah well done on completing the project for a 2nd year. What a huge achievement and I love looking at your pictures each week. What a great idea for a trip into London on Boxing Day. And I LOVE your Shauns. Happy new year to you and your family xx

  6. First Xmas with your new kitchen and it all looks very festive. I love those cushions. Little z would probably love them on his bed. I always have grand intentions to buy wrapping paper in the sales and never do. I might have a peek today. Happy new year!!!

    • The cushions were my husband’s one contribution to the Christmas shopping. My son said the cushion made his Christmas! My challenge with the wrapping paper will now be to remember where it is until next December!

  7. Looks like you have had an amazing time. Had to chuckle at the message on your car – my teens keep doing similar to mine. Hope you all have a very happy New Year

    • Thanks very much, it’s been a really good few days! Teens and tweens are cheeky sods! My husband has cleaned my car now, apparently it was very hard work!
      Happy new year!

  8. gorgeous photos of your Christmas Sarah. Your kitchen is so lovely and i love the table runner.
    the emoji cushions are ace! and what a fab kite!
    wow look at that high water level on Tewkesbury – they are always badly affected there.
    wishing you a very happy new year xx

    • Thanks very much, happy new year to you too! I absolutely love our kitchen – and our bargain Sainsburys table runner! It is always bad in Tewkesbury – they have two main rivers. It’s not unusual for Tewkesbury to spend the winter surrounded by water. x

  9. A busy week for all. Is the pants over or does it run into the new year. Bargain with the Xmas wrap. I bought my nieces Christmas present for 2016 a party dress and cardi I’ll buy the shoes etc nearer the time, I know I’ll forget about it but at 5 she won’t mind if I buy 3 or 4 (will probably buy 5 or 6)

    • Last day of the panto is 2nd January 🙁 That’s very good planning with your niece’s Christmas present!

  10. I do the Christmas stocking up after Christmas each year and save myself a fortune. I like to buy the more expensive paper with the grid on the back – I am hopeless at wrapping. It’s been so wet hasn’t it? Sick of drying stuff. Well done on another year of 365.

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much 🙂 I’ve never bought bargain Christmas stuff before, but I will do it again! I would be lost without the grids on the wrapping paper!

  11. Sounds like you’ve had a fabulous Christmas. Love the kite shot and the pylon one, beautiful. Can’t get over the daffodils, but we’ve had cherry blossom here! Bizarre weather 🙂 Wishing you a very happy new year Sarah and a fabulous 2016 xx

  12. Yay, snap on completing year 2 of 365. I love the pylon sky photo. So pretty sky vs the black of the pylon.

    Your car needs to park next to mine, then it’d look very yellow and unmuddy! Mine’s brown again a day after the car wash depressingly.

    Result on the sale gift wrap/cards. I grabbed a pack of cards, but had to hold off the rest – I’ve got so much wrapping paper still left – I always forget how much I have, especially when 4 of the nephews now have money or vouchers!

    See you for 366

  13. We buy our paper and cards at this time of year every year.
    I am glad she has enjoyed the panto, the children on stage when we sat pours seemed to be having fun.
    Oh I love the Shaun, they are both very cute.
    Oh dear at the wet feet, time to make use of the sale I think.
