Week 9 of #Project365. 27th Feb - 5th Mar. A photo every day for a year!

This past week has been a bit of a drag. Excited for the end of the home learning and the return to school on Monday but feeling a bit blah about the rubbish weather, it has felt a bit of a struggle but we got through it and we're going to enjoy a relaxed weekend before we get back into a proper routine, well as much as we can. Becky doesn't start back at college for a couple of weeks and she's still not sure how many days a week she'll be in.

Now for a photo every day!

Gin and Corrie on the TV

58/365 - 27th February
I was sent a bottle of gin liqueur in exchange for a blog post and when the sun was shining on Saturday I thought I better take some photos.

59/365 - 28th February
I record the old episodes of Coronation Street and always watch them in big chunks. They're up to where Nick and Leanne first get together when they're teenagers. It took Becky a while to realise Nick was played by a different actor to the one in Corrie now. lol

60/365 - 1st March
Ellie was working on her Design and Technology project and had to draw some pictures of the headline act at her festival. She chose Billie Eilish.

61/365 - 2nd March
The locket I won from This Mummy Loves blog and decided to let Becky personalise it and add photos to give to her girlfriend. It arrived on Tuesday and it really is beautiful.

62/365 - 3rd March
Ellie has been working on her Design and Technology project since the start of the new term in January and this week came the time to put it all in a PowerPoint. She had to cut so much from it. She was allowed 10 slides but had 25. She rejiggled and decided which one's she really wanted to keep, finished it and handed it in.

63/365 - 4th March
Ellie had her first lateral flow test from school. She was worried about it but did it and laughed that she had stressed so much. We got the results back a few hours later and it was of course negative.

64/365 - 5th March
The last day of home learning for the week and hopefully forever!

  1. I always ended up with more slides on presentations or words in assignments! Good luck Ellie!

  2. We just got word that our school will be opening up just a bit more so my son should have a few more days in the building each month... baby steps but at least they are steps in the right direction!

  3. Ellie's work on the festival looks very professional. I do the same with tv shows, store them up to watch.

  4. Great job Ellie! You guys have a busy life! #MMBC

  5. Oh, that gin sounds tasty! Cin cin! The locket looks very pretty. Good job, Ellie! Glad she was reassured that the test is not as scary as she thought it might be.

  6. The work looks fab, she's done a good job. Glad the test was negative #365

  7. So pleased that the necklace has gone to a good home and that she'll love it forever as I will mine :)

  8. Yay for being done with home schooling and glad the Covid test was negative. I love that locket and the gin liqueur sounds nice. #project365

  9. Love Ellie's picture off Billie! Looks great.

    That locket is lovely and will make a wonderful gift. I think a lot of kids have been nervous about the test only to find out its not as bad as they thought it would be.

  10. So glad that she found the test not too bad. The locket is lovely and I am sure will be very much loved. The gin sounds great too, being relatively new to gin I love trying all the different flavours. Sounds like Ellie did a great job with her presentation I always struggle to keep slides to low numbers.

  11. Love the locket a fab prize. Who do you know that sends you gin to review? I never get offers like that lol. Hope the back to school/college goes well and you can get some routine back into your life

  12. The locket is beautiful. Ellie's school project really does look amazing. The test are interesting to say the least, so glad it was negate. I hope they work with the Covid battle #365

  13. Glad the LFT wasn't too bad for Ellie. Love the locket for Becky's girlfriend. I think I would like to try out different flavour gins :) #project365

  14. That is a beautiful locket, my daughter really wants one, I will have to find out where it is from

  15. The gin liqueur looks lovely, hope you enjoyed it! Fab effort with the drawing Ellie. Well done on the locket win. That's amazing your daughter had 25 slides in the end, must be hard to decide which ones to get rid of. Bless her for going the extra mile with her work.

  16. I have no clue what is a later flow test.. the chain and the locket looks amazing..Shahira from
