Project 365 2017 Week 46

When the weather is dull, there’s not much happening every day and we have so little daylight, it can be hard to know what to photograph. So back in 2014, when I first took part in Project 365, I took photos every day of the shoes which sum up our week. And it’s become a bit of a tradition.

So here’s our week in shoes…

(And I realise that somehow over previous weeks I’ve managed to get the numbering of my days really badly wrong, so I’ve put them right from this week onwards!)

Day 316 – Sunday 12th November – Sunday in our house is always football day. I was sad not to see my son play, but I had to wait in for my daughter getting home from a party. It was a bad game to miss as my son’s team won 6-5, he scored two goals and was man of the match!

Football boots, Son, 365 Day 317 – Monday 13th November – my daughter had her final ballet lesson before panto rehearsals start. It’s probably her last ballet class before Christmas. Ballet shoes, Ballet, Daughter, 365 Day 318 – Tuesday 14th November – the day we’ve been waiting for since the auditions two months ago, possibly the day we’ve been waiting for since the last panto ended, the start of panto rehearsals! I’m not sure why my daughter hasn’t got a matching pair of jazz shoes, but they are at least the same size. Jazz shoes, Panto, Panto rehearsals, 365 Day 319 – Wednesday 15th November – these are my general rushing around shoes in winter. They were a review pair I got from Hotter a couple of years ago, because you know I will never spend money on myself. Today’s rushing around included a dermatologist appointment for myself (I’m going to just be taking my Roaccutane on alternate days now) and an emergency trip to the GP for my younger son who may have broken his nose playing rugby yesterday. Boots, Hotter, Winter, 365 Day 320 – Thursday 16th November – after 48 hours in the house, my poor injured son decided he could go for a walk and we actually managed to be out for an hour. He should be back at school tomorrow. Trainers, Son, 365 Day 321 – Friday 17th November – my younger son went back to school. There was a non-uniform day for Children in Need at the girls’ school, so my eldest wore his favourite shoes rather than his school shoes. Shoes, Son, 365 Day 322 – Saturday 18th November – these are my running trainers (yes, they’re more review shoes), running trainers I haven’t worn for running for two weeks and counting, due to my injury. That’s the longest I’ve gone without running for at least two years. Today I wore them to be tail walker (a volunteer who finishes last) at Parkrun. Trainers, Running, Parkrun, 365 Project 365 is a bloghop. Hop over to see what others have been up to this week. But I bet they won’t just have shoes in their posts!

  1. I thought you were joking about the shoes but you weren’t! I love this idea. So interesting how each pair have a story.#365

    • Nope, I wasn’t joking about the shoes! It made my photos so much easier this week! I could do at least another week as there are plenty more shoes and stories I didn’t share, but normal service will be resumed next week!

  2. Your daughters shoes really show how much she loves dance!! And I was half expecting to see a pair of Uggs for you. (Mine have a hole in it, arrrgh!). hope your boy is ok now after the rugby injury and yay for going down to alternate days for your meds!

    • Thanks, so far so good with the medication! My son has a hospital appointment for his injury next week, so we’ll know more then.
      Sadly no Uggs, as mine were in such a bad way (holes!) that I had to get rid of them. Have been looking at Black Friday deals for replacements, but they only seem to have deals on the odd colours and styles 🙁

  3. good luck with the new medication dose, hope it works out for you, was your son’s nose broken? even a knock can be really painful. 2 of my kids had broken noses but from fighting 🙁

    • Thanks very much. So far, so good with the new dose of medication! We think my son’s nose is broken, but he’s got an appointment on Tuesday when we’ll have a clearer idea.

  4. What a great idea! I think I might try a week of shoes one week. It is so hard to take photos at this time of year!
    Good luck to your girl with panto rehearsals…I hope your son is better now and you recover from your injury soon x

    • Thanks very much! It certainly makes photos easier. Rehearsals are going well, thanks. My son went back to school, but is giving rugby and football a miss this weekend until he’s healed a bit better. x

  5. Love the shoe series posts – nice to see the difference in htem. SO funny about the odd jazz shoes. did they get mixed up with another girl, or is there another pair like it at home?

    • Thanks very much! I think she’s got another ‘pair’ of jazz shoes like this somewhere in her wardrobe. If I remember rightly she had two pairs of size 4s last year.

  6. You must have so many pairs of shoes in your house for all the dancing and the sports, even if not many of them are yours. Hope that nose gets better soon and your injury.

    • Thanks very much! It’s mainly dance shoes we have – ballet, tap, pointe and jazz! My son uses the same boots for football and rugby, and my husband and eldest, who play a lot less, actually share a pair of football boots! We all have a pair of running trainers, but my eldest’s double as his everyday trainers.

  7. Ha I love your week in shoes Sarah, what a great idea. Love your Hotter boots. I have got a pair from last year and I wear them every single day at this time of year. So comfy and cosy x

    • Thanks! The Hotter boots are fab, aren’t they? I’m amazed that mine are still in such good condition because I wear them every day and walk quite a long way in them.

  8. Those do look good boots, but I still need a heel, I feel so clumsy in flat shoes. I do love seeing your week in shoes, it’s just brilliant. Hope your son gets on ok with his nose. xx

    • Thanks very much. My boots have lasted so well.
      My son is feeling a bit better, but it definitely wasn’t a good thing to happen! x

  9. I am with you at not spending on myself, best slippers I ever had I won, would have cost £35 but I did get nearly 4 years out of them so not a bad buy from that point.
    I also love ths tory behind the shoes and ouch at a broken nose.

    Post a Reply
    • Wow, that’s impressive! I wear slippers out really quickly because I walk around a lot and seem to be rather heavy-footed!
      My poor boy with his nose! 🙁

  10. Ah, the week of shoes always make me smile 🙂 Hope your sons nose is okay now, and that rehearsals are still going well x

    • Thanks very much. My son’s nose is a bit better now, but he will need surgery at some point in the future. I always enjoy doing my shoe week!

  11. Hope you are back running soon. I think of you most weeks as my friend has started doing our local Park run with her son. Can’t wait for panto updates! #365

    • Thanks very much! Well done to your friend and her son. I’m feeling a lot better now, so I think I might be ready for a short, slow run in a few days.
