Project 365 2017 Week 2

Day 8 – New Year, New Veg Patch!


At the end of the year we changed from Oil to Calor Gas, which means I can finally get rid of the large oil tank behind the shed and Vegetable patch, there is now a redundant concrete slab, i’m thinking a new greenhouse! Today we spent the day starting to clear the rubbish away, we still have a long way to go…

Day 9 -New Dresses For The Big Girls


Both Xene and Neva are quite tomboyish in their clothing choices, so when they both showed me these Steven Universe inspired dresses and asked if they could get them, I agreed, and I think they look lovely.

Day 10 – Revision Night


Neva’s school does GCSEs slightly different, they start two of their options in Year 9, meaning they are not trying to study for them all at the end of Year 11. Neva had her first major exam for Travel and Tourism on Wednesday, so it was some last minute revision Tuesday night!

Day 11 – Snuggled in A Blanket


Tyrus has not settled any better at school this week, in fact, its got worse, the first words he says when he gets up is “No go to school” although his teacher and Teaching Assistant both assure me that it only lasts a few minutes. I had a telephone call from school today to tell me that the educational psychologist is visiting next week, so that should hopefully help his EHCP. He is at his calmest when he is wrapped up in his tree blanket, here he is playing on my phone.

Day 12 – Expanding The Brand!


Since I have been working as a Social Media Manager, it has meant I have had more time to work on Hex Mum and Big Family Little Adventures, a few weeks back we had a discussion as a family and made the decision to expand the brand, by introducing a third blog that concentrates on Family Games, (board and computes/gaming), movies, technology for the larger family, basically anything that isn’t covered in parenting or Travel and Days Out! Lochlan is currently studying Games Development and Film & Tv at college, Xene has already completed TV & Film, so we are hoping to use their talents and a way for them to earn some money before they head off to uni. This week Big Family Gaming was established and Lochlan wrote his first post.

Day 13 – Finally we had some snow!


This morning Tyrus was not feeling well, so I did a less stressed school run with reports that most places had snow, except for Norfolk! As I was walking out of school it started, by 11.30 I had received a phonecall from Lochlan to say college was shutting early, I drove to collect him, Xene and Viggo had a little play, but it had all disappeared by the time the others had returned from school, luckily Kaide’s teacher had allowed them to go out and play in it, much to the disgust of Eowyn, who’s teacher hadn’t let them! All of Great Yarmouth and Gorleston were on high flood risk alert, thankfully the tide didn’t get as high as predicted.

Day 14 – A Tiny Sprinkling of Snow

When the children woke up this morning there had been a small amount of snow during the night, Kaide and Eowyn got up and dressed the quickest i’ve ever seen them and they rushed outside, they weren’t out for long as it was very cold and quite wet, fingers crossed for some more snow shortly.

And that is the end of week two, don’t forget to stop by all the other lovely bloggers taking part in Project 365

    The snow was quite disappointing, wasn’t it? Your girls look lovely in their dresses and I love the idea of the new blog. It’s great that your kids work with you on it. Mine were 10, 7 and 5 when I started blogging, so my kids weren’t involved – and they’re still not involved at 15, 13 and 10 – it’s something they tolerate, but no more!

    Loving the girls’ dresses: very nice without being overly fussy. I’m glad it’s not just me that keeps setting up new blogs. Hope the new venture goes well.

    Good grief one blog is enough for me, could not cope with another.
    The dresses are lovely, my teen will not be seen in a dress anymore.
    We had a smattering of snow and the children loved playing in it.

    I didn’t know you were a Norfolk blogger! I come home to Norfolk every Summer 🙂 Love that you had some snow – I remember childhood snow in Norfolk being two feet deep – or maybe not quite that much! Love the girls choice in dresses 🙂

    The girls’ dresses are lovely. And age appropriate which is always good when you’re under pressure to buy certain things. Lucky with the snow. We only had a dusting although that was fine for me. Good luck on the 3rd blog.

    Love those dresses! Good luck with the new blog 🙂 Glad the kids got a little time in the snow, it does seem that it didn’t really materialize anywhere!
