Project 365: Week 47

In terms of pictures, this week has been a pretty uneventful one, but it was a big one because my daughter went away for the first time ever – on her school residential.

So here’s our week in pictures…

Day 320 – Sunday 16th November – the usual Sunday morning in two different places for rugby. Sometimes my daughter dresses sensibly, but today she was a very welcome flash of colour on a grey morning on the touchline.

Day 321 – Monday 17th November – my daughter did her packing ready for her residential trip. Yes, she really is that neat! I wasn’t allowed to get involved as I’m not neat enough.

Day 322 – Tuesday 18th November – I just caught this amazing sunset at exactly the right time.

Day 323 – Wednesday 19th November – my lovely girl went off on her school trip, leaving Mummy and Daddy to care for this little man.

Day 324 – Thursday 20th November – my younger son was lucky enough to win some K’Nex in a competition, so he’s been busy building!

Day 325 – Friday 21st November – my lovely girl got back from her school trip and was most definitely NOT TIRED. She was just very quiet, watched a lot of telly and had that glazed expression I only ever see on my younger son after a Scout camp or sleepover. I doubt many 8 year olds would have such an organised case after a school residential.

Day 326 – Saturday 23rd November – I got to watch my son play football for the first time in weeks. Sadly they were defeated for only the second time this season – and look at the state of that pitch! I think that really is the epitome of grassroots football.

  1. Not sure I’d achieve that level of neatness especially on the way back. Glad she had a good time.

    • We were very lucky to get those wellies to review, I would never buy Hunter wellies for a child! My son has had a brilliant time building KNex this week.

  3. I love how neat your girl is!! And the k-nex looks great – will check it out for the boy 🙂

    • KNex is a really great building toy – good for following instructions and for using the imagination. It’s better value than Lego too. I love how neat my daughter is too – I don’t know where she gets it from!

  4. Definitely a nice bright outfit.

    Can’t believe your daughter’s so immaculate after being away from home. My case on the return is always rammed and struggling to shut, compared to the outbound journey!

    We Beautiful sunset!

  6. Glad she enjoyed her residential!! Loving her outfit on the rugby pitch – the K-Nex would have me worrying about picking up all the little bits

    • She loved the residential, thanks. I had to be very careful with the hoover and those KNex bits this week!

  7. Blimey that is a very neat case, and some organisation, even afterwards! Glad she had a good time though and that you have her back home 🙂

    • Thank you! I have to get used to it – they seem to go away more and more as they get older!

  9. My kids pack their own stuff,admittedly not that neat except for the eldest who is very particular. It’s a good thing for them in becoming independent.

    • It certainly is! To be fair, I don’t make her do it, she just does it of her own accord!

    • Thanks very much! The sunset was lucky timing! My daughter is amazing – I don’t know where she gets it from!
