Days 1 – 8 of Project 365 (Again!)

Well that was a monumental failure at restarting Project 365 again after the school inspection had finished. I was determined that life would be back to normal, completely forgetting about the trauma of writing reports, headteacher's retirement concert and party, ensuring all books were marked and general chaos. I think I lasted another four days after the second week of the restart.

Anyway, first week of the Summer holidays and I'm doing it this time!

The Boy… Aged Six

I'm a little bit late putting together this collage this year, but life's been hectic and like many things it's been delayed until the Summer holidays to do it justice.

Every year, to celebrate The Boy turning another year older I do two things; video him answering the same set of questions, and a collage of his favourite things. I love to see the progression and there's been a few changes, but while Peppa Pig has never been far away before, her day is now firmly over unfortunately.

The Boy aged six

You can find his collages aged three years old, four years old and last year's photo, aged five.

Ch-ch-changes!

Last night I changed the header on my blog, ready for the Summer. As I always do when I change it, I had a little think back over all of those photos I've used on my blog and did some digging to find them all. I can't believe how the time has flown between December 2010 when I set up my blog and now, how small changes happen during the everyday moments and how quickly they turn into years.

The Museum For Trees

She looked at me aghast, her eyes wide in horror at the mere suggestion, "No no! They can't climb trees! We're a conservation area! They might damage the trees, plus of course the danger to themselves!"

Hunting Dinosaurs at The Bendricks

Today we walked in the footprints of dinosaurs. 200 million year old dinosaur footprints. Actual dinosaurs.

TomTom GO 5000 (Review)

When it comes to navigation whilst driving, I am resolutely an advocate of reading road signs and maps, using the internal compass, asking directions and working out the way to go next using all these skills. I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have rowed during a car journey because he […]

That Holiday Feeling with the Taste of Iberia (Review)

One of our favourite holiday destinations pre-The Boy was Barcelona, sitting on Las Ramblas in the early evening, supping a glass of sangria and muching on yummy tapas while watching the street artists trying to tempt the tourists with their wares. It was utter bliss and I couldn't have felt more relaxed with the 'on […]
