Project 365: Week 40

It’s another boring week of photos, I’m afraid! Autumn might have beautiful colours, but everything else is a bit boring.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 271 – Sunday 28th September – my younger son played in a  rugby tournament – and they won!

Day 272 – Monday 29th September – went to a meeting at school about my daughter’s year 4 residential. Seeing her face light up at the mention of an evening walk in the forest in the dark was priceless, because this is the girl who is terrified of the dark.

Day 273 – Tuesday 30th September – a busy day of work, but I managed a quick walk in the sun before picking the kids up from school. How can it possibly be autumn?

Day 274 – Wednesday 1st October – Eric, our long-haired guinea pig has been getting matted fur, despite us brushing him every day. My husband decided giving him a little shave would help, and it seems to have worked!

Day 275 – Thursday 2nd October – what is it about the autumn sky? I seem to have been snapping at the sky a lot this week, but I’m sure I don’t do it at any other time of the year. This was taken at 8am.

Day 276 – Friday 3rd October – remember last time I went for a meal with friends I didn’t eat? Well I did eat this time – a delicious Thai meal!

Day 277 – I made jelly with my daughter. Just from a packet. I know this is no big deal for most Pinterest-addicted super mummy domestic goddesses, but for me it really is!

  1. I’m a pinaddicts addict but I’ve been known to mess up jelly! Love your sky and autumn shot and the packing list looks quite full on – hope she has a fab time! 🙂

    • Glad to hear it’s possible to mess up jelly! Apparently this was too watery, but at least she enjoyed making it!

    • Thanks very much. I walk down there often, it’s nice and peaceful and just down the road from me! That’s how much stuff you need for an outdoor kind of trip in November! They’re going to get very wet and muddy!

  3. That reminds me we must to do jelly – found a random packet in the kitchen when we cleared it out and I’m not a use stuff up mission. The residential sounds very exciting and well done to the rugby player.

      • My kids weren’t so keen! They have strawberry, orange and lime (‘traffic light jelly’) at school which they love. So we probably shouldn’t have bought blackcurrant!

    • My kids enjoyed making the jelly, they were less keen on eating it! She can’t wait for her residential and I’m so proud of my boy and his team!

    • Thanks very much! My kids like jelly at school dinners and have been begging to have it home. They had no idea how it was made.

  6. Yay for the jelly!! Now you can make trifle too ;). I’m loving all the colours in the sky at the moment. The only thing about Autumn I’m actually liking!

    • Trifle sounds a bit challenging! The skies have been amazing lately. I love the colours of the leaves too, but not the cold or the dark!

  7. how exciting! i loved our school residential trips! .. wow i wish i had thought of shaving my guinea pig, mine years ago was dreadful to keep unmatted!

    • It’s such hard work looking after guinea pig fur! We’d trimmed bits with scissors, but the shave was genius!

  8. Ha ha love your attempt at domestic goddess status with packet jelly! Bet your daughter loved it – how about trying a packet cupcake mix next? Super easy! X

    • I used to do those when the kids were little, I reckon we might cope! 😉 x

    • I would never have thought of shaving the guinea pig, that was all my husband’s idea. It seemed to work though! x

  10. I agree about the sky at this time of year – there’s something captivating about it. I can never get jelly to work – it never seems to set properly!
