Project 365: Week 51

The last week before Christmas has been a busy one, but not necessarily one which lends itself well to pictures, unfortunately.

But here’s our week 51 in pictures…

Day 348 – Sunday 14th December – a new Christmas decoration to brighten the house up.

Day 349 – Monday 15th December – we went to see the Cubs and Scouts Christmas performance, which is always very entertaining. My younger did an I’m a Celebrity spoof with his friends.

Day 350 – Tuesday 16th December – my mum gave us her old fibre optic Christmas tree. It’s hard to take a photo of it, but it looks really beautiful in reality.

Day 351 – Wednesday 17th December – the younger kids took part in their school Christmas concert at a church. My son was ill in the morning and we weren’t sure whether he would make it.

Day 352 – Thursday 18th December – sadly my younger son has taken far too much of these this week!

Day 353 – Friday 19th December – the last day of term and we were invited to school for a special assembly in which my daughter received this certificate.

  1. Sounds like very busy week. I think we were all pretty glad this week was over – not least your son who probably needs a jolly good rest! Hope he gets better really soon x

    • Thanks very much. It is a good week, but it does get quite tiring! Poor boy is still ill now – day 6. x

    • Thank you! It really was brilliant for my daughter and for all of us. My poor son is still poorly, hoping it can’t drag on much longer. Merry Christmas!

  3. Sounds like a busy week! We don’t have any of the school stuff at all, it’s a bit sad really. The boys will have holiday parties on Monday and that’s it! Hope your son is feeling better. Love your new decoration x

    • That is sad not to have the school stuff. It’s exhausting, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s an essential part of Christmas! My fingers are firmly crossed for my son’s recovery. x

  5. We have been a medicine filled house this week – well done little lady on your certificate. Eliza was proud of her 100% attendance award this week too.
    I love our fore optic tree, they look amazing in the dark

    • Well done to Eliza. My daughter got an attendance certificate too. Seems to have been a bad week for poorly kids everywhere.
      Thanks, the tree looks amazing in the dark – sadly it’s really difficult to photograph it and do it justice!

  7. Hope your little boy gets better soon. I know what you mean about too much calpol and ibuprofen. (And paracetamol for me!). Bah to winter bugs!!

    • There’s been so many of them around this winter! I would definitely like my boy to be better now, though!

    • Thanks very much! My son is still poorly, but my fingers are crossed he will be better in time for Christmas. I love the fibre optic tree, but the photos don’t do it justice at all!

  8. Hope your son is feeling better. Somehow we are escaping illness in this house but everyone is sooo tired.

    • Thank you! I’ve heard about so many families with ill people that I think you’ve done pretty well to avoid it!

  9. a huge we done on the certificate, it really does make all the parenting hassles worth while. Oh dear at the medicine, hope it clears up soon.
    Have to say I am a fibre optic tree lover.
    Hope you all have a great Christmas and look forward to seeing your post at the other side of it.

      I was so proud of my daughter with that certificate – it was a real achievement 🙂

  10. Love the Christmas decoration in the top photo, although I did think it was a funky Christmas themed cheese grater to start with! We’ve got through a fair bit of Calpol this week too, hope he’s better soon.

    Post a Reply
    • Ha ha, I thought it looked like a cheese grater too! Damn Calpol, there’s been far too much of it lately!

  11. Thanks very much, it was a good week. He’s not quite better yet, poor boy. Hoping he’ll be recovered in time for Christmas.

  12. That is a pretty damned fabulous certificate to be awarded, she should be proud of herself!

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    • Thank you! She was proud, but she was also faintly embarrassed. I, on the other hand, was bursting with pride!
