Week 50 of #Project365. 11th - 17th December. A photo every day for a year!

Just one week until Christmas and I can't wait. We're all ready apart from waiting for the food to be delivered. The kids are finished school and college for the year and I am looking forward to spending lots of time together as a family. We have gingerbread houses to make, mince pies to bake and lots of Christmas films to watch.

We have had a good week with a few surprises along the way. Christmas gifts being delivered, a competition win and after having Ellie's hearing test it has been agreed that she will be trying out hearing aids in the new year.

Now for a photo every day!

Cooking Fever and Love Actually
Booking a booster and Christmas cards
Tony's chocolates
Marzipan on a Christmas cake
Lots of different chocolate

345/365 - 11th December
I discovered that one of my favourite games to play on my mobile is available to play on the PC and was free through the Microsoft store.

346/365 - 12th December
My eldest and I watched Love Actually, her for the first time. She wasn't keen on even watching it but smiled and laughed all of the way through.

347/365 - 13th December
I queued online to book my booster. It was quite the faff. Queuing for ages and then being sent around in circles entering my details over and over. I finally got booked in at the beginning of January but have read online a walk in booster place opens next week and I am tempted to try the walk in place when Becky has her booster just after Christmas.

348/365 - 14th December
I wrote out the Christmas cards that I had to post. I remember when my girls were little I wrote out about 30 in about half an hour. It took me about 45 minutes to write about 8 on Tuesday, Finding peoples addresses and names. I realised that despite knowing my dads cousin for 42 years I didn't know her surname. I've always known her as Little Jean, that's how I addressed the card, it will give her a chuckle. lol

349/365 - 15th December
I had a lovely delivery from Jayne who blogs at Sticky Mud & Belly Laughs. I have been wanting to try that Tony's chocolate for ages and now I can.

350/365 - 16th December
I finally got around to putting marzipan on the Christmas cakes. The icing will be put on next week just in time for Christmas.

351/365 - 17th December
An amazing box of chocolate arrived from Galina who blogs at Chez Maximka. I was so lucky to win her 12 Days of Chocolate giveaway! There is so much of the chocolate which I haven't tried before. So far I've hidden it from my family and I am tempted to keep it from them. hehehe

There will be no Project 365 post from me next week with it being Christmas so the week after will be a double with the last 2 weeks of the year.

Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful time.

  3. Lots of yummy chocolate! I'd hide it from my family too.

  4. Well done on the win from Galina! I need to watch Love Actually again, love that film. The booking system was a pita for me trying to book for my son too, 6 days of trying before it finally accepted he was eligible! #365

  5. I watch Love Actually every Christmas and randomly throughout the year, but Die Hard is the ultimate Christmas movie. Thank you for the card, a lovely surprise and well done on the win with the chocolate, I've not tried Tony's you'll have to let me know if it's good.

  7. Ahhh what a win! I am glad someone in our little 365 gang won! I didn't make a Christmas cake this year and I am now regretting it. Cant wait to see it all iced. Hope you managed to get your booster okay if you went to the walk in. Hope you all have an amazing Christmas xx

  8. Congrats on your win! I love Cooking Fever, such a fun game. I'm glad we got invited for our booster before the government told everyone to get it so no waiting for an appointment. #project365

  9. Oooh Tony's chocolate I want to try it too, was it nice? I am a fan of Cooking Fever, although I haven't played it in a while, might have to give it another go! I seem better at the game than real life cooking haha. What a lovely win from Galina! That is such a generous supply of chocolate to get through! I hope your family don't find your secret stash!

  10. Well done on your giveaway win, how lovely to receive a box of chocolate and perfectly timed for Xmas too! :) I'm the same with Christmas cards, I'm terrible with names anyway so always takes much longer that it should! :/ Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! :) Sim x
