Days 167-172 of Project 365

167-173 of 365

167. Drip! (We spent the day at Legoland Windsor as guests of the MAD Blog Awards for their family fun day. Late on the Saturday night, reviewing the purchases and outgoings over the previous week, we had actually realised that we weren't able to pay for the petrol to get there! Luckily a sponsored post opportunity came in on the Sunday morning and we were able to peg it up to Windsor before you could shout, 'I'm a MAD blogger!' I'm so pleased we did, because we had a brilliant time, and The Boy thoroughly enjoyed the Duplo Valley waterpark.)

168. Horsey, horsey (We spent a very quiet day playing in the house and garden to recover from the weekend's events. The Boy adores his new hobby horse we're reviewing from Great Little Trading Co.)

169. Squidge! (The one thing that The Boy asked for on his birthday list was the PlayDoh bakery playset which he'd seen in countless shops and on television. Mum bought it for him and he was over the moon, and spent most of the morning making cakes and icing them.)

170. Joy! (This is my favourite photo of the week, and possibly of this year's project. On Wednesday we took The Boy to his new school for an induction session. He adored the facilities and wanted to get stuck in to everything. Afterwards, the three of us walked home hand-in-hand and decided to go to Barry Island. It was a glorious afternoon with temperatures at 27ยฐC at 4pm! We anchored the kite to the parasol, played frisbee, football, built sandcastles and ate chips on the sand. It felt slightly bittersweet to go from the introduction to the school – which will put a stop to these spontaneous afternoons – to being so carefree, but the sunshine soon wiped that feeling away.)

171. I will fit! (Packing for Britmums Live! and The Boy was trying to squash the important things into his rucksack, like him!)


172. Contortionist (Today was the first day of the Britmums Live! blogging conference. I took a lot of photos of yummy food and various bit and pieces, but thats not what my 365 is about. Instead I've chosen a photo of my shattered boy who went to the Maritime Museum with daddy and spent a restless night in his Premier Inn bed.)


173. Famous? (Another full on day of blogging advice in excellent sessions, and also brand schmoozing in The Hub. Coca-Cola have a stand here offering personalised labels; this makes me chuckle!)

    Awww looks like you've had a brilliant time at Britmums. The Boy looks like he had a fab time at Lego land. We've never been, I had no idea they had a water park!

    Great photo on the beach and can see where it's your favourite, it would make a great one to use for 'The Boy loves…' if you are joining Laurens linky!

    Love the coke bottle too, my friend sent me a pic of my name next to Aaron's last week!

    Great photo with his horse. The picture on the beach is brilliant, with the angle I thought he was leaping at first! Glad you had a great time at britmums ๐Ÿ™‚

    he always seems to be a happy chappy. Love the coke bottle, daughter No3 managed to get her and her OH names, but mine not available. I got my blog name on the Cadbury Dairy Milk earlier this year.
    Hope you all enjoying Britmums

    Lovely collection of photos. I can't tell you how much I love 'Joy' – I've seen it a couple of times now and it's just complete exuberance, it brought a huge smile to my face both times.
