Project 365 2018 Week 4

January is really not the best time for photographs. It’s been a very wet week and, between the weather and work, I haven’t managed to take any nice photos.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 21 – Sunday 21st January – not the most beautiful photo you’ll ever see. My son went on his first D of E bronze practise walk. It was sleeting and there was snow on the ground and he was wearing a showerproof coat. His waterproof coat and waterproof trousers were in his bag. His hands were so cold that they were painful for the rest of the day. I also had a very tired girl who had gone to sleep at 5.30am at a sleepover.

Day 22 – Monday 22nd January – my work was a bit quieter today, which I’m hoping is just a blip and not the shape of things to come. The only photo I took was of the guinea pigs. I bet they can’t wait until it’s warm and dry enough to go on the grass again.

Day 23 – Tuesday 23rd January – regular readers will know that my daughter loves making slime. She sells some to her friends. This is a couple of her orders waiting to go to school.

Day 24 – Wednesday 24th January – a very mild day, but an unpleasant run in strong winds and rain, and my trainers are starting to get holes in them. Looks like I’ll be needing a new pair soon!

Day 25 – Thursday 25th January – the sun actually came out today, which was nice, but I’m cheating with today’s photo. My husband does a lot of travelling for work and is usually in London at least one day a week. He sent me this photo of the Thames and the skyline.

Day 26 – Friday 26th January – to make up for the fact that Man Utd was on TV all night on a Friday, we had Pizza Hut delivery for tea.

Day 27 – Saturday 27th January – I had to sacrifice Parkrun this morning because someone had to take my younger son to an away football match. As I run several times a week and my husband only does Parkrun, it was only fair that I missed it. I did some reading in the car before kick-off.

    • Thanks very much! I think so, but I am a bit biased.

  1. Hasn’t it been lovely to see a bit of blue sky again this week. Might need to ask for your daughter’s guidance as my son has started to ask about slime. I thought of her instantly so that photo made me chuckle! #365

    • My daughter is still loving the slime! I’ve got some recipes on my blog, the best place to start is a simple one with just PVA, bicarbonate of soda and contact lens solution. Good luck if you make some!

  2. This is a rubbish time for photos…Lighting is so bad. Ugh!
    Good on your girl selling slime. hehehe
    Yum! That pizza does look so good!

    • Roll on spring! I can’t wait for it to be warmer and lighter. My daughter’s slimes are very popular, so it’s nice that she is able to sell some. The pizza was delicious!

  3. shame you missed park run but one of the drawbacks of being a parent.
    Great photo by your hubby.
    Shame your son did not put his waterproof clothing on. Fifi often comes home from D of E weekends cold, filthy and exhausted.

    • I don’t often miss Parkrun, because I can usually drop him off beforehand or he can get a lift from someone else, but I had no choice this time! I don’t know why my son didn’t wear his waterproofs! Glad it’s not just him that comes home cold and tired!

  4. Sunday wasn’t the best weather for long walks. The guinea pigs are adorable. Which Nesbo book are you reading? I’ve read a couple of his books, and got a few more among the ever-growing pile of paperbacks. The pizza looks very tasty.

    • I’m reading The Thirst – the latest one. I’ve read all of the others. I’ve always loved him, but it’s been a while since I read any and I’d forgotten just how much I love his books!
      It will be March when my son does his next D of E walk, so I’m hoping the weather will be a bit better by then.

  5. I keep forgetting to take photos because the light is so crap currently but hope it gets better soon. How wonderful your daughter is an entrepreneur! #365

    • I’m definitely taking less photos at the moment because there’s so little to inspire me. I can’t wait for the garden to come back to life!
      I wouldn’t have thought I would have liked a child of mine selling stuff, but I’m actually very proud of her. She buys all her materials and equipment herself, so it’s her own little business.

  6. Love the colours of the slime – it’s nice that her friends want to buy them from her. Hope work picks up again.

    • Thanks very much, work was already starting to pick up again by the end of the week 🙂 My daughter’s slimes are very popular!

  7. My niece is obsessed with making slime and it’s all the rage here in her school. I loved her pink one. Glad your boy is all better now!

    Post a Reply
    • Slime is all the rage at my daughter’s school too! A lot of the kids are happy to buy it off others rather than make it themselves. I was very relieved that my son was well once he’d warmed up!

  8. i tried to click on the arrow on the pizza, thinking it was a video you had uploaded…lol, really must wear my glasses more often. How long before you venture out to buy yourself a new pair of trainers? I know you’re not a big fan of spending money on yourself

    Post a Reply
    • Every time I see that pizza pic I do a double take thinking it’s a video! I’m considering doing a half marathon in May, in which case I’ll need to get myself some new trainers pretty soon!

    • Thanks! She’s created a nice little business for herself 🙂

  9. It’s been cold, but we have had a little bit of nice weather this week. I love the slime and how much of a pro your daughter is. How cute. She is doing amazing xx #365

    • Thanks very much, she does love making her slime!

  10. Your daughter is the slime expert! Love her entrepreneurial spirit 🙂 I haven’t yet made slime with my guys, but my son quite often comes home with it having made it with friends! Suzanne’s comment about trying to play the pizza photo made me laugh, I thought the same as I scrolled down!

    Post a Reply
    • She really is the slime expert! It’s great that your son gets to make it without messing up your kitchen! Although my daughter is very tidy with hers.

  11. Think my girls would like to make slime…I am not a fan of it though! Might have to have a go at making it! That pizza looks so good!

  12. Your guinea pigs are adorable, I had one when I was little called Janie. My 9 year old daughter is obsessed with making slime, I blame Youtube!

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks, everyone loves Eric the guinea pig! YouTube is definitely to blame for the slime craze. I’ve never known one of my daughter’s obsessions last this long.
