Week 3 of #Project365. 15th - 21st January. A photo every day for a year!

January is lasting forever!! It's still cold but this week has been brighter. Yesterday I actually went out in my hoodie instead of my big coat, it was warm in the sun. We've had a good week with a MRI scan for Ellie, exams for Becky, a couple of lunches out for me and my dad came with his trailer to take away the leftover wood from when we put the fence up. We have a quiet weekend planned. Ellie is off out with her friends and Becky will be sleeping off a night shift today. It will be housework for me and dying my hair. I have chickened out of going green and I am going back to the red.

Now for a photo every day!

Hospital and sushi
Rice krispie cake and blue sky
Sausage roll and a big breakfast

15/365 - 15th January
Ellie had her MRI scan and was a complete star (It was just routine before her hearing aid). She dealt with it brilliant and took it all in her stride. I couldn't be prouder. We have an appointment in a couple of weeks for the results and to get her fitted for a hearing aid.

16/365 - 16th January
Sushi for lunch, for Ellie anyway. It stunk the house out.

17/365 - 17th January
I decided to use up some of the chocolate in the tubs from Christmas to make rice krispie cakes. They were so good. A mix of mars bars, Twirls, Galaxy and Dairy Milk. I will never get the exact same mix again so I don't want to rush to make them again in case they disappoint. 

18/365 - 18th January
Blue sky and sunshine!

19/365 - 19th January
Pretty flowers. They're not mine though, they're Becky's off her girlfriend.

20/365 - 20th January
Sausage and cranberry roll. I saw these in Lidl in the reduced section. 50p for two and bought a pack. I wish I had bought more they were delicious and would have lasted a while as they were frozen and just needed cooking.

21/365 - 21st January
A big breakfast. Stu had a half day at work so we met up for lunch.

  1. What pretty flowers. Those chocolate rice krispie treats sound yummy!

  2. The sausage/cranberry rolls sound nice. We're a sucker for a sausage roll here. So many variation options too. Well done Ellie on coping with her tests. Hopefully the fitting goes ok. I made chocolate fridge cake with most of last year's Christmas biscuits and some of the chocolate from this year. The OH moaned it was too rich (I used both dark and milk chocolate), and N moaned because I put in about 8 nuts!). Ended up having to chuck most of it because they just won't eat the rest and I needed to get rid without eating it myself. So annoying as I made it to avoid throwing out the biscuits. Pre-Covid my colleagues in the office would have benefited if home didn't eat them.

  3. What a great idea to make Krispie cakes with leftover Christmas chocolate. We've eaten all ours but always have chocolate left over at Easter :o)


  4. Like the sound of those sausage and cranberry rolls. Glad the MRI went well #365

  5. Glad to hear the MRI went well and the flowers are beautiful :)

  6. Well done Ellie on the MRI scan, Beckys flowers are really pretty. Yay for blue skies. Yum good idea to use up the chocolates, thankfully the boys have gone through all of ours already. How nice to meet for lunch x

  7. January does indeed seem very long, each day really drags! I hate it when you find a bargain and wish you'd got more... #project365

  8. Your photos this week have made me feel hungry! That sushi looks amazing. The sausage and cranberry roll looks delicious as well and that is a very big cooked breakfast! Love Becky’s flowers from her girlfriend and well done to Ellie on coping so well with her MRI. #project365

  9. Doesn't matter who the flowers were for, they're in the house for all to enjoy hee hee. I love sushi. Well done to Ellie for the MRI scan, they can be quite an experience

  10. I haven't made krispie cakes for years. I actually have chocolate in the cupboard I was meant to use to make some. Little E is desperate to try Sushi I must take her to get some. It's nice we are getting blue skies again. I sounds like you had a good week #365
