Project 365 2014 – Week 8

Having hubby home over half term has been fantastic and he has finally witnessed how and why I sometimes have a bad day too.

The kids have been monopolizing all his time and often bicker over who can sit on his lap, although they have not been impressed by his much stricter house rules.

The good news is that hubby has passed a telephone interview for a new job this week and has a full face to face interview on Monday so we have everything crossed that it goes well.

Here is our week in pictures:

Project 365 2014- Week 7


47.  We went to Corfe Castle where our teddy’s took part in the Teddy Zip Wire activity.  The kids had a great time exploring the castle and learning about its history, but the favourite part was most definitely watching their brave teddy’s in action.

48.  Callan arrived to visit for Half Term, bringing his homework and revision with him – let’s just say that Physics was never my strongest subject so I wasn’t much help!

49.  Eliza snoring surrounded by her Doc McStuffins toys.  We are reviewing the Twinkle Tog sleepsuit and I only wish they did one in my size.

50.  Wednesday saw us take advantage of a fab offer to attend Monkey World.  It was a fantastic day out and Abbey and Callan loved it as much now as when they were little.

51.  We descended on the local park where Sebastian hogged the swing.  It was a bit boggy though after all the rain and Isaac ended up literally covered in mud!

52.  We have been asked to review a Kettler Go Kart.  After an hour of much huffing and puffing by hubby it was finally ready for a test drive and kept the kids amused for hours!

53.  The boys were back out on the Go Kart, so Eliza gave chase on her Microscooter.

Project 365 2014 – Week 7

It has another tough week here.  I couldn’t share last week but hubby lost his job for the second time in 18 months last week and although I have loved having him home to help, the stress of job hunting isn’t a pleasant one especially when there doesn’t seem to be much around that calls for his skills.

Still, life goes on and we made the best of it.


week 7, project 365


40.  We saw a break in the weather and headed down to the beach aboard our scooters

41.  I am a founder member of a local networking group, supporting mums in business and it was my turn to give a talk about all things blogging.  I expected a couple of people to turn up but there were 26 and I was terrified! (Photo credit to

42.  The weather was horrific so we had a day at home.  I am busy introducing Sebastian to the delights of finger foods

43.  Kian and Eliza help me out with bath time

44.  It was a little chilly today and Sebastian was sporting not one, but two sets of Teddy Bear ears for the school run

45.  We headed out to Build a Bear to review their store and find out all about their Million Hearts, Million Wishes campaign.  They treated Eliza like a Princess and her new My Little Pony has barely left her side since

46.  We had a birthday party at our local Soft Play centre and this was the first time Sebastian got to join in.  By joining in, I mean gazing at himself in the mirror with the occasional tap of a ball!
