Project 365 2017 Week 52

So that’s 2017 over and my fourth consecutive year of Project 365 completed.

Here’s our final week of 2017 in pictures… (With apologies for the rather dreary last few photos!)

Day 358 – Sunday 24th December – my daughter had two panto performances. The rest of us, along with my parents, my sister and her family went to visit my brother in his amazing new house. Father Christmas came at about 11.30pm. For the first time ever, he’d got presents from all of the grandparents, aunties, uncles and godparents, so the kids had lots to open on Christmas morning.

Day 359 – Monday 25th December – the kids were very happy with their presents. We spent Christmas day at my parents’ house, which was a nice change from doing all the cooking and tidying! But first we had our traditional Christmas day Parkrun. My husband, daughter and I all ran and the boys came along to support.

Day 360 – Tuesday 26th December – we went to London for the day, partly to get a break away from family stuff, but mainly so my daughter could enjoy her Christmas present – tickets for Wicked!

Day 361 – Wednesday 27th December – a day full of little cousins. It was my niece’s 5th birthday, then my inlaws visited, with our two little nephews, to watch my daughter in panto. I was very surprised when we woke up to this snow.

Day 362 – Thursday 28th December – I’d hoped to go running in the morning, but the snow and slush had all frozen and it was lethal. This is frozen floodwater in the local park.

Day 363 – Friday 29th December – it was still too icy to run locally, so we drove to town where the pavements were clearer to run. We went to watch my daughter in panto – for the fifth time for me – and my niece went up on stage. I seemed to spend most of the day sorting out recycling because the men couldn’t collect it the other day and now won’t collect for another two weeks. I had to load it all up into the car and take it to the tip. Then I immediately started filling the boxes back up again.

Day 364 – Saturday 30th December – Parkrun was cancelled, so my husband and I just went for a run locally. I ran four miles for the first time in two months. My husband took the boys to Old Trafford to see Man Utd and my daughter’s friend came round and I finally got to see Paddington 2. Then it was off to the theatre for the penultimate panto performance. I may have stayed to watch, even though I’ve already watched it a lot! And I got my first daffodils of the year.

Day 365 – Sunday 31st December – the final day of the year and the final day of panto. And Sainsbury’s would like to wish us all a happy new year…

Happy new year! See you in 2018.

    • Happy new year to you. I’ve been very surprised by how much snow we’ve had. We’re really missing the panto, but spending all of our time singing the songs, doing the dance routines, looking at photos and searching the panto website! x

  3. Hope you, and your daughter enjoyed the final panto. All done for another year! I need to go and get myself some daffodils 🙂 Glad you managed a longer run, you must be relieved to be recovering. Wishing you a very Happy New Year, and good things for 2018 xx

    • Thanks, happy new year to you too! It’s such a relief to be running again, although I still don’t feel very strong. We’re already counting down to next year’s panto. x

    • Thanks very much. I’ve loved going to the panto and ended up seeing it seven times! I decided life was too short to not go to it! Happy new year to you too. x

  6. lol at your last photo, looks like you all had a great christmas and a happy new year to you all. Were the daffodils expensive? they must be imported at this time of year

    • My last few photos are a bit crap! The daffodils were only £1 a bunch and I bought two bunches. I love daffodils anyway, but the fact they are so cheap is an added bonus!

  7. 4 years Sarah, that is a huge achievement of joining in every week. I love that you escaped the Christmas craziness and went to London on boxing day, I bet your daughter loved Wicked. I can’t imagine how fab the Christmas Day parkrun is x

    • We love the Christmas day Parkrun! It was great to get away from it all for the day on Boxing Day and my daughter definitely loved Wicked. x

  8. Sad that the panto is over, but nice to get to see it so often.
    Park run on Christmas Day????? think you all need a detox……lol….better than sitting stuffing chocolates all day
    gosh Daffodils already? seems a bit early

    • It was great to see the panto so many times! We definitely miss it. Christmas day Parkrun has become a bit of a tradition for us now. It gets the day off to a really good start. I was quite surprised to see daffodils in the shops, but a couple of years ago I actually had one in full bloom in my garden on Christmas Eve!

  9. Oh wow you got lots of snow again! We just got a flutter the second time round.
