Another 2 week catch up. Honestly not sure if I will be continuing with these updates….not much happening really. It’s been a relatively quiet two weeks while the eldest gets on with her exams.
Day 163 – Sunday 12 June
Usual quiet Sunday…..didn’t take any pictures.
Day 164 – Monday 13 June
Had my annual diabetic review and had more bloods done. The nurse was confident that she could get blood out even after I told her how difficult everyone finds me…..but then failed and had to go for the vein in my hand. Just wish they would go straight to the hand rather than put me through the trauma of jabbing me in the arm for nothing. Found these sweets in the local Islamic shop…slightly addicted to them now!
Day 165 – Tuesday 14 June
Baby group today. Minu really opened up today and was crawling after the lady and clapping along with her.
Day 166 – Wednesday 15 June
Decided to try making some ‘ice cream’ for Minu. Tried strawberries with melon. She only really had a bit and then wasn’t interested. Will try a different flavour.
Day 167 – Thursday 16 June
Eldest was home all day today as no exams and revising from home. Decided to order some food for lunch. I tried the Karachi Bun Kebab and masala fries from Chaiiwala which were pretty tasty.
Day 168 – Friday 17 June
A warm day…..didn’t really do much except hide indoors. No pictures.
Day 169 – Saturday 18 June
Another day of not doing much. No karate as belt testings happening this weekend…so just chilled at home. No pictures again.
Day 170 – Sunday 19 June
Had to pop over to mums in the morning as she had guests coming over…and then belt testing in the afternoon for Bee for her brown and white belt. It took a while as other belts were testing too at the same time. Minu was pretty well behaved for most of the time. Bee achieved her belt with a B pass. Next belt is the Junior Black Belt.
Day 171 – Monday 20 June
Hubby is having issues with his car yet again so while it was at the garage we popped to town as I needed to get some things and had some lunch too. Minu was grumpy unfortunately, she didn’t want to sit in her pushchair…and she didn’t want to go to her dad either, so I ended up carrying her around. Saw this teddy in Boots and couldn’t resist the sparkle!
Day 172 – Tuesday 21 June
Baby group in the morning, she really loves this group. And then in the evening my nephew pressure washed an old water table I had for the other girls which I never got round to getting rid of….now Minu can play with it. Then an online scouts meeting in the evening to make some decision.
Day 173 – Wednesday 22 June
Our garden is south facing so we get loads of sun….but no shade so we go in the garden in the evening. Considering getting a small gazebo so get some shade during the day. Minu loves the water table and ended up soaking herself.
Day 174 – Thursday 23 June
Final exam for the eldest and final day of Year 11! After the exam they were all allowed to stay for an hour or so to get their shirts signed and watch a video of their embarrassing moments of the past 5 years. It seems a shame a proper leaving do wasn’t organised considering they have had it tough since Year 9.
Day 175 – Friday 24 June
Popped to a local school in the morning as we are considering using their venue for our Scouts group. Then started sorting out Bee’s room. Now that the eldest is home she can help look after Minu so I can do a deep clean of the clean of the house which includes a major declutter. In the evening took Bee to karate and while she was there we did some window shopping at the shops. Tried out this drink from Holland and Barrett. Was OK, not something I would buy again.
Day 176 – Saturday 25 June
I was planning to go to a local scout carnival but had a rough night and Minu was grumpy. She didn’t have a proper nap in the morning as the postman woke her up so didn’t want to risk taking her while she was still grumpy, there was a lot of screaming and shouting from her today. Possibly teething again. She was happier in the garden. Carried on sorting out Bee’s room as have a new bookcase arriving tomorrow so had to make space for it.

I hope your eldest girls exams went well. How exciting for her to have left school.
What a faff with the nurse trying to get blood, at least it’s done now. It sounds like Minu is really enjoying the baby classes. That kebab bun looks so good. Well done to Bee with her karate. x

Thank you, yes can’t believe her exams are over!
Well done Bee on her belt award. Such a cute photo of them playing with the water table. Can’t beat water play when it’s warm. We have the same issue as you – no shade in the garden. I used to set up a tarp off the fence with some king poles and guy ropes, so at least N could sit and play under it.
Might have to try that with the tarp
Glad to see that Minu is enjoying the baby groups. Hope you enjoy them too. Big well done to Bee! She must be proud with her achievement!
The teddy bear is super sparkly. Strawberries and melon ice cream sounds delicious.
Yes we are both enjoying them
Glad to hear she likes her baby groups, cannot believe she is on her feet already. Such a shame that your eldest isn’t getting a leavers do – my timeline is full of prom photo’s here
Yes I don’t understand why they didn’t have a prom
Beautiful photos of Minu at the baby group, sounds like she’s enjoying it. A huge well done to Bee on getting her brown and white belt and good luck going for her black belt. Love the photo of Bee and Minu at the water table together. End of an era for your eldest finishing year 11, what a shame they didn’t have a leaving party though. Good luck to her with her exam results. #project365
I don’t understand why they didn’t have a leaving party as most of the schools around us have had a prom.
I bet your eldest is glad her exams are over. Well done to bee with her karate and so nice to hear the baby is enjoying all her groups
Yes she’s certainly glad they are over!
