Project 365 2017 Week 9

The photos this week are pretty boring – and seemed to be largely focused on my own entertainment, but we’ve had some good news, so it’s been a good week.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 57 – Sunday 26th February – My daughter took part in a Scouts cooking competition, which is quite remarkable for a girl who has never cooked in her life before. Needless to say, her team didn’t come in the top three. I didn’t get to watch my son play football, but was very pleased to hear he’d scored a hat trick in a 6-0 win.

Day 58 – Monday 27th February – a slight cheat because this was taken last night. My daughter did her hair before bed ready for school today. I had a quiet day at home, but got a couple of new jobs in to work on later in the week.

Day 59 – Tuesday 28th February – watching TV has always been difficult for me, as the kids go to bed too late and hog the telly. But two weeks ago we started watching Unforgotten and managed to watch two whole series in just over a week. So now I want to watch another programme I’d never watched, but had heard a lot about – Broadchurch. The DVD of series 1 and 2 arrived today.

Day 60 – Wednesday 1st March – D-day! We finally found out which secondary school my daughter will be going to in September and we were very pleased. Today really was all about my daughter, because we also went to see her school assembly.

Day 61 – Thursday 2nd March – spent the day working on articles at home. The weather was lovely and I had a quick walk in the sun before picking the kids up from school.

Day 62 – Friday 3rd March – I’ve been waiting for Ed Sheeran’s Divide since Castle on the Hill was released at the start of the year. I spent the day getting ready for friends coming round for dinner. This is a big deal – we never have friends round for dinner!

Day 63 – Saturday 4th March – I went to watch my son play rugby. It was a tough 7-7 draw, with a couple of injuries, including my son. The boys were angry about the way they had been treated by the opposition and the referee, but they played well and supported each other. My son will be OK, just a few aches and pains for a day or two, I’m sure.

  1. Hope you had a lovely evening with your friends Sarah, and what a lovely end to the week. It has certainly been an emotional week with the High School decisions hasn’t it. So very pleased it was the decision you all wanted. Love the birds on the wall by your daughter. Is that your daughter’s bedroom ? x

    • Yes, that’s her bedroom! The walls are so full of stuff as the room is an odd shape. It’s certainly a weight off my mind knowing she’s got the school we want. It was a lovely evening with our friends, thanks 🙂 x

  2. Ahh! I am in awe of your daughter being able to do her hair like that. If you gave me a week I couldn’t do it that well on someone else. lol
    Yay! You got Broadchurch! Enjoy! I love it….
    Congrats about the school place!
    Fab photos! Not boring at all x

    • Thank you! You’re too kind about my boring photos 🙂 We’ve just got two episodes of series 1 left to go. We will finish these too quickly, then have a big wait for the next episodes of series 3. I don’t know how my daughter manages to do her hair, I couldn’t do it either! x

  3. Wow, your daughter is so amazing at doing her hair. I might bring my two over for lessons when they’re a bit older, it would save me so much time! Really pleased about the school thing too, and I’m always amazed how many goals your son scores in football, they’re more like rugby points!

    • Thanks very much, it’s such a relief about the school! I’m so proud of my son and his goal scoring. Kids’ football does tend to have a lot more goals than the Premier League, but it’s still impressive! My daughter taught herself to do hair with YouTube, but she never looks at it these days and she made that style up herself. x

  4. Your daughters hair is so long! It looks fantastic but does it really stay looking this fab overnight?! Mine would be a state..#365

    • Thanks very much! Yes, it really does stay in place as she does it so tightly. She’s never had a proper haircut, only the occasional trim by her dad!

  5. Yay for the school again 🙂 and that hair is amazing. I know I’ve said this before but she could charge a fortune doing it for other people! I love Eds new album too, I was gutted I couldn’t get tickets to see him!

    • My husband had chance to get tickets for Ed Sheeran at Wembley a few years ago and didn’t even ask me – he just said something like ‘We don’t want to watch Ed Sheeran, do we?’. I was gobsmacked! It wasn’t long before he realised what a stupid mistake he’d made!

  6. oh dear to the rugby, different or same son as the football? Does R’s choice of school make your school runs any easier?

    Post a Reply
    • Same son as the football! Daughter will get the bus to school, which will make life easier apart from the inevitable evening and after school stuff, which will be more challenging!

  7. Friends for dinner sounds like fun.
    Your girl’s hair is so long, plaiting it herself must be quite a challenge!
    And we’ll done on securing the school place you wanted!
    I remember those matches where you don’t think you’ve been received fairly, but your boy will have lots of support from his team mates and it’ll make them all stronger for their next opponents

    • You’re so right about the rugby, that’s pretty much what their coach said! It was against their biggest rivals, so it was always going to be an emotional game. I have no idea how my daughter manages to do her hair!

  8. Hurrah for your Daughter getting in to her chosen school, it’s always a bit nerve wracking isn’t it until you get the confirmation ) Beautiful hair she’s got too and a real skill at plaiting, I couldn’t manage it that neatly on someone else’s head never mind my own. Have a good week 🙂

    • Thanks very much. It’s such a relief to get the school! The alternative would have been fine, but this is the one we really wanted 🙂

  9. Her hair looks great, I could never manage anything like that.
    I am a fan of Ed Sheeran as well.
    Great blossom picture.

    • I think Ed Sheeran is universally loved, isn’t he?
      I was pleased with the blossom picture. It was only taken on my phone, but seemed to come out just right!

  10. ooooh Broadchurch is brilliant – you will love it. I prefer binging on episodes than have to wait week after week for one, and boo advert too!
    well done on your daughter getting into the school – great news for you all.
    ~I hope the dinner party went well x

  14. Great news about your daughters school choice and I have real hair envy, I’d love to ever have been able to have plaited hair like that. I need to get that CD too, Broadchurch any good? Not watched it either #365

  15. Horrible when school kids play ugly and spoil what could be a really nice but still competitive match. Busy week on the sports front with a huge football win!

  16. Hope your son is feeling better from the rugby game now. Wow to your daughter doing her own braid like that, its beautiful. 🙂
