Project 365 2022 – Week 23

It has been a busy old week.

We have had armed police outside our house, three family birthday’s, a wedding to attend and two theatre shows and it doesn’t seem we are going to slow down anytime soon.

Here is our week:

Sunday 5th June

The last day of half term, so we took a chance on the weather and visited Swanage.

Despite being forecast not to rain, it started almost as soon as we arrived, so we enjoyed some time playing the 2p machines in the arcade before trading in the idea of an ice cream for some warming chips.

We did manage 20 minutes in the park, although the kids had soggy bottoms all the way home!

Monday 6th June

Back to school for Isaac, but it was inset day for Eliza and Sebby and Abbey’s birthday.

Sebby was invited to Splashdown water park with a friend, so Eliza and I headed to the beach to meet up with Abbey for a birthday treat.

Tuesday 7th June

Back to work for me and it was a busy day catching up with things that had not been done in my absence. The first thing was restock the charity bookshelf and counted all the money – we raised over £300 for a local school.

Wednesday 8th June

Since the pandemic, the kids have been wearing their PE Kit to school on PE days, but the school has decided to revert back to getting changed in school. Sebby wasn’t impressed with all his luggage!

We did have a strange evening. We were woken by sirens and a car screeching to a halt outside our house (we live on a green). After an hour of police dogs and shouting we know two arrests were made, but a third person got away. We have a video doorbell, so got the whole incident on camera – it’s a bit scary to think that armed police were outside our house.

Thursday 9th June

We are having a refit at work and when I got in, I found that the builders had made me a bespoke bookshelf for my charity book stall.

In the evening, Eliza and I headed to the Lighthouse Theatre to watch Fantastically Great Women the Musical.

It is absolutely brilliant and a must see for all ages. Not only did we all learn a bit of history and left feeling empowered, but best of all it was colourful, fun and had us dancing and joining in.

As soon as we left, Eliza said she wanted to see it again.

Friday 10th June

Round 2 at the Lighthouse to see Fantastically Great Women the Musical, only this time it was Isaac’s turn with school. I wasn’t sure if, as teenage boys, they would enjoy it as much, but he loved it too!

Meanwhile, Eliza and I had a much needed hair cut.

Saturday 11th June

After no weddings for years, we went to our second wedding of the year, our old neighbours.

Thankfully the weather was on their side and the ceremony was gorgeous.

The kids weren’t invited to the ceremony, so spent some time baking with Abbey’s mother-in-law, before joining us at the reception.

  1. What a busy week indeed!
    Ahh! The 2p machines are such fun, shame about the weather but it sounds like it didn’t ruin your day.
    What a lovely birthday treat for Abbey.
    The charity book shelf is looking great. Well done those builders. x

  2. We love cheap arcade games like the 2p ones. Busy week, hope Abbey enjoyed her birthday. The theatre show sounds good, I’ve seen it mentioned a couple of times.

  3. What an eventful week you’ve had! Scary having armed police outside your house though. Hope Abbey had a nice birthday. Fantastically Great Women sounds like a great show. Your old neighbours certainly had a lovely day for their wedding. #project365

  4. I hope the kids had lovely birthdays. That must have been quite a frightening experience with the armed police, hope it’s all calmed down now. The book case for work looks lovely good luck with it

  5. Sounds like a busy week!

    Our school have decided to keep it as PE kit on the days of PE so no extra bags. Prefer it that way! I remember once our road was blocked off by the police as they did a drugs raid 2 doors down..was quite scary!

  6. 2p machines are my favourite! My younger two still go in kit on PE days but Matthew has to carry it to change into. Fab that you got a surprise with the specially made shelves for the books. #project365
