Project 365 2017 Week 4

It’s been a funny old week, with an inset day and Young Voices, which made it feel that nobody was ever in the right place at the right time. It’s also been another cold week. I am so over cold!

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 22 – Sunday 22nd January – another great result for my son’s football team. They won 5-1 and my son scored a hat trick, meaning he is comfortably the top scorer in his league! He actually isn’t scoring in this photo, but I absolutely love the picture (which I’ll admit was taken by someone else).

Day 23 – Monday 23rd January – Mondays are always busy days for us, so there was no time for daughter’s new hobby, but she left all her stuff out on the side anyway!

Day 24 – Tuesday 24th January – another cold, icy morning, which turned into a lovely sunny day and I had lots of work to do. The only photo I took was this one of Wilfred the guinea pig.

Day 25 – Wednesday 25th January – my eldest had an inset day and it was Young Voices, the huge school choir concert, which has been the highlight of January for the past few years. This was my daughter’s last Young Voices, as it is a concert for primary schools only. My daughter is in this picture. I could just about see her from where I was sitting, but needed binoculars to see her better. On the stage is Tabby Callaghan, who came third on XFactor in 2004.

Day 26 – Thursday 26th January – I’ve been wanting to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them since it came out over two months ago. I’d assumed I’d missed my chance, but remarkably it was still on, so I went with a friend during the day. It was good to get away from the house, because it was flipping freezing inside.

Day 27 – Friday 27th January – another day of working in a very cold house while it was very cold outside. I washed my daughter’s Young Voices Tshirt and couldn’t resist getting her old ones out. Four years of Young Voices, which have seen her go from a 7-8 Tshirt to an 11-12 Tshirt.

Day 28 – Saturday 28th January – we went for lunch at a funky cafe, before my daughter went to get her glasses fixed and my boys had their hair cut (both very time-consuming processes!).

    • You’re so right about Young Voices! Wilfred is a very cheeky guinea pig! He’s only young and we’ve been surprised by his personality!

  2. It sounds like you have been busy….
    Ahh! My 9 year old wants a sewing machine. She wants to make dolls clothes. Eek!
    I still want to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them….I will have to get it on DVD 😀 x

    • It was a very busy week! My daughter hasn’t managed much sewing yet, but she’s made a simple drawstring bag and has adapted a Tshirt. I thought I would have to watch Fantastic Beasts on DVD too, although I’m the world’s worst at watching DVDs – they always send me to sleep, even good ones! x

  3. Loving the guinea pig photo! I’ve heard great things about young voices, I hope mine get the opportunity to do it in the future.

    • Young Voices is the most incredible experience. I think all kids should do it at least once. We’re lucky that my daughter has managed to do it four times. x

  4. Lovely that you have kept your daughter tee shirts as a record of her Young Voices experiences and memories.
    That cafe looks very funky – I hope the food was as good as the decor.
    I do not blame you for going to the cinema when it was that cold indoors – brrrrrr!
    I hope your daughter’s new hobby goes well, I could. never use a sewing machine properly, but it would be wonderful to be able to make my own creations with one xx

    • My daughter is going to get a sewing lesson at Hobbycraft next week, so I’m hoping she will learn more. Unfortunately I can’t teach her a thing myself! I think the food was almost as good as the decor! The kids opted for desserts, which were apparently delicious. x

  5. Young voices sounds wonderful. It’s not something I am aware of other than through you. Looks and sounds amazing. What a busy week, filled with great photos. The football one is awesome and way to go xx

    • It’s a great football photo, isn’t it? I don’t think they do Young Voices north of the border, sadly. I think your closest one would be Manchester. x

  6. Love all the Young Voices tops as memories. I remember Morgan doing it when he was in year 4, it’s such an incredible experience isn’t it. Aw look at little Wilfred, what a cutie. Glad you escaped the cold house and went to the cinema x

    • Thanks very much! I was surprised how easy the YV tops were to find! It was so nice to go to the cinema 🙂 x

  7. Ah Young voices sounds so good and so nice you’ve kept all the tops too. It has been rubbish weather hasn’t it? Although, I’m sure one day I didn’t even realise it was minus 1, I think I’m getting too used to it!

    • You know it’s cold when it’s minus 1 and you don’t even realise it! I’m definitely ready for some warmer weather.

  8. Nice to see the 4 t-shirt designs. Glad she has had 4 years of fun out of it.
    Oh dear is your heating not working?
    What is she planning on making with the sewing machine?

    Post a Reply
    • She’s had a great four years, thanks! The heating is working, but I don’t have it on when I’m home alone in the day. That’s how low the temperature drops indoors when it’s really cold outside! She’s upcycled a Tshirt and has made a little drawstring bag, but she needs some other ideas.

  9. Glad Young Voices went so well – 4 years is quite some dedication. Love the pic of Wilfred.

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much! She absolutely loves choir and Young Voices, but there aren’t many kids who do it for the full four years!

  10. Young girls like to get into something then leave it all out in the house! It’s great that she sews though and Young Voices looks an amazing thing to be a part of 🙂

    • Sadly boys like to leave stuff out too! 🙁 Young Voices is brilliant!

  11. I hope the cold passes soon, it must be nice looking forward to spring. lovely collection of t shirts for your daughter, I’ve kept several of my boys football tops over the years, they don’t want them now, but I’m sure one day they’ll enjoy digging around in their keep sake boxes

    • It’s so important to keep hold of a few memories! I don’t hoard everything, but I do keep a few special things. I think I have every leotard my daughter has ever owned! I should probably get rid of a few of those!

  12. Gosh, what a busy week you had! Young Voices must be such an amazing experience, love the set of T-shirts 🙂 That looks like a fabulous cafe!
