Project 365 – Week 1 of 2018

Happy New Year all!

So I am back with the photo a day! I did debate whether to stop…..but after so many years it has become a bit of a habit and I think I would have felt a bit lost not doing it.

So here goes!

Monday 1st January

It was dad’s 78th birthday. We don’t celebrate birthdays in a big way but generally get cake. His birthdays are extra special now considering he was so ill and we almost lost him last year. He still is ill but more stable. Hoping he remains stable throughout the year….the liver hasn’t worsened in the last 6 months and hopefully it won’t any time soon.




Tuesday 2nd January

Finally got out these holidays (been ill with a cold so haven’t done much). Went to London to meet with hubby’s friend and his wife, and also went to the Pakistani Embassy to sort out the eldest’s ID card which had expired. It allows us to travel to Pakistan visa free. An early start led to seeing this beautiful sunrise!




Wednesday 3rd January

Had ordered a new bed for Bee which had arrived yesterday. It’s a mid sleeper cabin bed with a desk, bookcase and chest of drawers……lots of parts! Was a bit daunting but started putting it together. Rosie of course had to get into everything. Then back to karate today for Bee after the holidays.



Thursday 4th January

Back to school for both girls and I carried on with the bed making from yesterday. By now hands and back were aching! And the mattress had gone missing somewhere along the line. They sent out a new one today so although I finished the bed, an excited Bee couldn’t sleep in it until the mattress arrived!




Friday 5th January

A day of doing absolutely nothing…well except for taking dad to see the diabetic nurse. His sugars are all over the place and they are trying to control them. Couldn’t be bothered to cook so it was pizza for the girls in the evening! Bee’s mattress arrived so she finally got to sleep in her new bed. She was so excited. I sold her toddler bed frame and felt a bit emotional as that had been the eldest’s bed too when she was a toddler.




Saturday 6th January

Spent the morning putting all of Bee’s toys back into her room and trying to declutter as well as she has too much stuff. Also it was the parents 49th wedding anniversary so of course had to have cake!
