March, April and May of Project 366

I'd say that I have absolutely no idea what's happened to the past seven weeks, but that would be a lie! A fractured wrist doesn't sound that serious or too much of an injury, but in all honesty it has been one of the hardest things to recover from that I've had to deal with. I was lucky to have the surgery and receive such brilliant after-care, but April has past by in a whirlwind of surgery, appointments and physiotherapy. Being unable to use both arms has been frustrating and there have been many tears. I have a completely different appreciation and more understanding now for the children in school with broken arms!

The thought of trying to do this post properly is way too much to deal with! I know that I've taken a photo every day because, unable to crochet and do my daily row for my Sky Blanket, I've photographed the sky to record the colour and be able to play catch up at another time. What it does show is that actually the past seven weeks have been quite sunny and we've had some lovely blue skies. The first photo is from today, the last photo is from dawn on the day after I'd broken my wrist and was returning from hospital at 6am.

To add to the abundance of blue skies, I've also got a smattering of photos of normal life; flowers from friends, days out from before my accident and play in the garden or crafting with The Boy.

I can't wait to get back to normality!

LTA & Britmums: Tennis For Kids

Despite not being very athletic as a child, there were a few sports that I really did enjoy taking part in; namely tennis and swimming.

As The Boy is getting older, I am keen to involve him in sports to ensure that he has a healthy attitude to keeping fit with exercising being the norm. I am acutely aware though that, just like his father and I, he is not a big fan of rough and tumble sports or even competitive team games. I've spotted him on the playground playing football with his friends, and it's fair to say that other than kicking the ball, he doesn't have a clue about the rules!

It's proved a bit of a challenge to find sporty activities for him that he'll engage in. He's started swimming regularly with daddy, and goes to gymnastics every Sunday, but the one he's passionate about has eluded us.

That is until the opportunity to experience tennis came along!

Natural Childhood

Going Ape in the New Forest!

There is nothing that The Boy loves more than clambering up a tree. It provides a real sense of achievement and connecting with the natural world in that manner really grounds the soul, uplifting and revitalising the body. Last weekend we travelled down to the New Forest for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday celebrations. This involved […]

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!"

Beach Memory Jars

Memories made at the beach last a lifetime. As far as I'm concerned, this is completely true! However, sometimes it helps to have a little something to aid the memories. My sister pointed out a glass jar to me recently which had 'Sand from our favorite beach' printed on it. I really liked the idea, […]

Interplay Powered Hovercraft (Review)

The Boy has really reached the inquisitive stage with his toys, and by that I mean the 'let's take this apart and see how it works' stage. You know the one, it's very much the same as the 'Mummy, this doesn't work anymore' stage, and the 'Mummy! Could you help me fix this please?' stage. […]
