Project 365 2019 Days 13 – 19

January 21, 2019Mandi Morrison

Well its been a bit of an up and down week this week, two children off ill on different days, a week of mock exams, self assessment calculations and the countdown until the eldest comes home for a study week!

Sunday 13th January 2019

I had a pretty bleurgh day today, nothing specific, but I was just so tired and ended up sleeping for 3 hours during the day, Asa took care of the children and I awoke to a lovely roast dinner, my body must have secretly known what lie ahead as the entire Sunday night Tyrus was unable to settle and kept waking almost hourly, so he ended up having Monday off school! These two are slightly obsessed with hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows, and also wearing their base layers as they are getting ready for the cold weather!

 

Monday 14th January 2019

Tonight I was invited along to La Fille Mal Gardee ballet performed by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia, Neva and I had watched them perform Swan Lake last year and knew they were amazing, unfortunately Neva had so much revising to do that Lochlan accompanied me, which surprised me as he had never shown an interest in the ballet before, but he said that he needed to watch all forms of art and movement to help him with his film production career. It was not a ballet I was very familiar with, but I enjoyed it and found a comedy ballet very easy to watch.

Tuesday 15th January 2019

As quickly as the bug/virus came then it went again, this morning Tyrus was up as soon as the alarm went off and was eating breakfast with Viggo, this doesn’t happen very often, when they are both dressed and having breakfast at the same time, so I grabbed a quick shot, plus its the only time that Tyrus is in the house in anything more than a pair of pants! When we got out of the car at school Tyrus was pulling my arm to get into school quicker so that he could receive his three stars for going into school nicely!

Wednesday 16th January 2019

With Lochlan’s first uni interview looming next week, he finally received an email to say that his certificates were ready at sixth form, which he collected and just needed good old mum to go to school and collect his gcse certificates- ones that he had somehow managed to not collect when he left!

Today I also had a well deserved catch up with Sarah from Boo Roo and Tigger Too, we met down at the local Toby and had an all you can eat breakfast, which was delicious and it was lovely to just sit and chat without worrying about deadlines and flatlays! Hence why you have a pic of Lochi’s paperwork and not my amazing breakfast!

Thursday 17th January

Tonight I have been going through Xene’s sketch book that she needs to hand in tomorrow for her finished project, and here is what her class have been working on for the last term, an entire train carriage that is to be used for a theatre production. They have made all of the individual panels, doors, windows and decorated them all, found appropriate props and made them fit the required era, I think they have done an amazing job, so if you’re going to the theatre and its got a train as part of the set, you never know!

Friday 18th January 2019

Today has been spent collecting all the info together for the dreaded self assessment, as it’s a partnership, it means twice as much filling in of online forms, Asa’s is pretty straight forward but somehow mine always seems much more complicated!! I say every year I’m going to be organised and do it in May/June and every January here we are! Eowyn woke up very early this morning complaining of a tunny ache, which resulted in a tummy bug, so she was off for the day, thankfully as it’s Friday the 48 hour rule meant only one missed day of school, fingers crossed nobody else comes down with it!

Saturday 19th January

Today was a busy day for the Morrisons, Asa had a rugby match, five of the children and I went to collect Xene from the train station and Neva set off very early to go and watch The Book Of Mormon in london. It was her best friends birthday present and he asked her if she’s like to go and watch it with him, his mum very kindly drove them there and brought them back, it’s so lovely to have all seven children together for the week, it’s going to seem even quieter when Lochlan goes away in September!

    It does sound like a stressful week.
    My two love hot chocolates at this time of year.
    Good luck to Lochlan with his uni interview!
    I hope no one else comes down with the bug x

    Wow what a busy week, I don’t know how you fit it all in. I am with you on the tax return I always leave it until the end of the year. Thankfully the business books are done at a different time but its still something I put off. That train carriage is amazing I thought it was from a museum. Nice to be able to catch up with blog friends it can get lonely sometimes, I often question why am I doing this…. Keeping everything crossed for the uni interview.

    What a busy week! I’m in awe of the train carriage, it looks amazing. I can’t imagine my boys every asking to watch a ballet, but they loved Book of Mormon!

    you’re building some great memories with all 7 of the children, glad the star chart is working for Tyrus. Love the train carriage set, it’s amazing and so glad your son and you loved the ballet, I’ve not heard of comedy ballet before

    That train carriage set is amazing, they should be very proud of themselves for that. Always nice to have a catch up with a blogging friend when no photos are required! I love the ballet too, glad you had a good time #365

    Hot drinks are lovely but none of us particularly like hot chocolate in this house #365

    Sorry to hear that your kids were poorly that week. My younger one also loves a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.
    The Siberian ballet is coming to Oxford in March, and I’m hoping to be able to see one of the performances, if my husband is in the country and is able to look after the boys for one evening. Not decided whether I should opt for Swan Lake or La Fille.
    I grew up in a city with a very famous ballet school, and La Fille is one of the ballets often performed by the students of the school. I used to love it. But then again, the music of Swan Lake is magnificent.
