Project 365 and Diary Updates Weeks 49, 50 and 51

Another bumper three weeker from me this week so lots to cram in! The end of Project 365 (a photo a day, every day for a year which is hosted by The Boy and Me) is in sight for 2014. After this post there will only be one more and then it will be the start of a brand new year. I plan to participate in the project again, even though many weeks of this year I haven’t joined in with the others… I’m still taking part and I do enjoy finding photo opportunities and writing up the posts. I’m sure it will be a fab part of the blog for me to look back on in the future… and for the children to read (and possibly cringe at!)

So, heading back to

Week 49

Project 365 week 49 2014

Day 334 – Sunday 30th November – We had been to the Pokemon event in Central London so afterwards we decided to hit Leicester Square for a mooch round. Stopped here to watch this act which was a mixture of dance and drama… was very comical!

Day 335 – Doing the daily reading books from school. This is sometimes a chore and the twins are not quite there yet with their reading, although it IS coming along…. some days they just don’t want to do it and that’s fine but if it’s been a couple of days I panic and absolutely insist they read, which doesn’t always go down well!

Day 336 -The twins Christingle service at our local church. It was very sweet. But at one point my boys stayed seated when almost every other child went to the front. I felt sorry for them, I know this is because of their shyness, so I went and sat with them, even though parents were supposed to stay at the back!

Day 337 – My daughter took part in a choir service with other schools, it’s a huge event in our local area and she was really looking forward to it being her year to do it. It was a wonderful evening of song…. they sang beautifully and we had a lovely evening.

Day 338 -I’d been to the Britmums Christmas get together, which I unfortunately had no photo’s from but had an enjoyable morning at. Afterwards I made the  most of the day and attended a press show for Heals. This is their new range of candles which are divine!

Day 339 – My work Christmas party! This is me on the right with two of my colleagues (actually the lady in the middle is the owner of the business!)

Day 340 – After last night’s party we stayed over in the luxury hotel and spent the day relaxing, walking around the beautiful grounds and chilling in the spa. Heavenly!

Week 50

project 365 2014 week 50

Day 341 – Sunday 7th December – The kids had made some decorations at their Nannies house, these big paper lanterns that they wanted to hang on the tree… which looked completely out of place!

Day 342 – Had to take Teen’s bike wheel into Halfords for yet another puncture repair. O and H each got a bike out to ride around the shop on while we were waiting.

Day 343 – Had a cheeky bacon butty for lunch. Naughty but nice!

Day 344 – A bedtime selfie.

Day 345 – Started some Christmas shopping, but had to stop off for the obligatory Costa. Love it!

Day 346 – Wear your Christmas Jumper day in aid of Children in Need. My boys were sent these adorable jumpers from Mothercare!

Day 347 – We had been invited to a special screening of new film Night At The Museum 3 ahead of the Premiere which was taking place next week. The film was fantastic…. we enjoyed every minute if it in the brilliant Imax theatre in Leicester Square.

Week 51

project 365 week 51

Day 348 – Sunday 14th December – Another event! This time for a screening by Netflix of their new kids series ‘All Hail Kin Julien’. It was held at swanky Mayfair club, Mahiki and there were a few celebrities present which was rather exciting…. I’d taken my daughter’s friend along and they were only interested in Pixie Lott, who very kindly posed for this photo.

Day 349 – The twins had made Christmas hats at school, this is O’s little creation!

Day 350 – I helped at the school for O and H’s Christmas party. I love being there with them and being involved in their little life at school… watching them with their friends. Bless my gorgeous boys.

Day 351 – Another day, another Christmas jumper! Actually today was my birthday. I’d spent the day (school hours) with the OH who had taken the day off work. This was the first time he’d done this in years and it was….. really nice!! We went to Westfield shopping centre in North London, did a bit of shopping and had lunch! Didn’t take any photos though unfortunately!

Day 352 – My daughter Christmas Church service this time. Her year group took charge and did all the readings. They also performed the songs from their choir service last week.

Day 353 – School broke up today, Friday and I treated my daughter to a visit to the London Coliseum to see the English National Ballet perform the Nutcracker. It was the most magical production, such a treat for both of us.

Day 354 – I wanted/needed a lazy day today. We were all exhausted, the end of term and in need of a break. We lazed about all day and even played on our old Wii! Forgot how much fun Wii Sports was!

Hope you’ve all had a great few weeks and you’re all ready for Christmas! The next Project 365 will include the last 11 days of the year and won’t be written until the new year…. so I’ll take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas! See you on the other side 🙂
