Project 365 week 11

The week my daughter has been waiting for all year finally arrived – her birthday week!

So here’s out week in photos…

Day 68 – Sunday 9th March – a lovely sunny day, so after rugby we went for a walk in the hills.

Day 69 – Monday 10th March – this is our landing, my favourite place to sit and read in the house. Well, it would be. I never have time to sit and read, so my daughter is making the most of it!
Day 70 – Tuesday 11th March – my daughter posed for me in her Sport Relief onesie. She’s worn it for quite a few days now and is refusing to let me put it in the wash!

Day 71 – Wednesday 12th March – I haven’t got long left at work now. I spotted this on the wall at work for the four of us leaving at the same time.

Day 72 – Thursday 13th March – the day before my daughter’s birthday. It’s family tradition that Mummy and Daddy get a ‘grotto’ of presents and decorations ready for the morning late at night. Pumba always takes centre stage with the cards in his mouth.
Day 73 – Friday 14th March – my daughter’s 8th birthday! Daddy bought her a surpriseΒ I’d always said she couldn’t have – a hair donut. She couldn’t stop laughing when she saw that Daddy had broken Mummy’s rules.
Day 74 – Saturday 15th March –
Linking up with project 365 withΒ TheBoyandMeΒ Pop over to see what others have been photographing this week.

  1. Good old Frankie and Benny’s; our favourite restaurant and great for birthday meals. Love her face with the hair bun, she obviously saw the funny side in that gift. Love the Sport Relief onesie I would have got one for the boys but we are overrun with onesies and I don’t think I could fit another one in the cupbard.

  6. Thanks very much, everyone, she was so delighted with that damn donut! Absolutely loved Daddy breaking the rules, I guess I’ll forgive him as she was so happy.
    You can’t beat Frankie & Benny’s for a kid’s birthday meal really, can you, Nikki?

  14. Aww I love your daughter’s laughing photo. Though bad Dad for breaking Mum’s rules! lol. Hope she had a brilliant birthday. I’d love a little seat on my landing for reading! What a great idea!

  16. Thanks very much, everyone!
    Love that you all like the donut picture! It’s a funny squashy thing you put in your hair to create a bun, Mummy Mishaps. In my opinion she doesn’t need it as her hair is very long.
    I don’t like them because I think they look chavvy, Erica! Not everyone agrees with me, but that’s my opinion!
    I think everyone else will have terrible hangovers after the leaving do, Mother Wife Me, but you’re right, not me! I’m really looking forward to having the best night πŸ™‚

  17. I KNEW she would love that hair doughnut! I also have a special chair for reading which I LOVE but is far too close to the television which is often too tempting πŸ™ What a lovely week you’ve had. x

  18. Thanks, Suzanne. That damn donut! The telly doesn’t tempt me, it’s the computer and phone which keep me from reading. It was certainly a good week πŸ™‚ x
