Week 30 of #Project365. 23rd - 29th July. A photo every day for a year!

We have had a lovely first week of the summer holidays. We haven't really been up to much, we've just eased ourselves in gently but there has been a few treats throughout the week. Stu got his first full months pay from his new job and now it all seems worth it him leaving the house at 7am. I did chuckle at his attendance bonus, he gets an extra chunk of money just to turn up to work on time. lol I thought that was the whole point of normal wages without the bonus. I'm not complaining though.

Now for a photo everyday!

I now have 3 different types of sunflower in my garden. This one is one of the smaller one's. The big one's are still my favourite.

I have got into a routine every Sunday of taking a reading of the electric meter and putting the numbers on my account on the British Gas website. I want to make sure they don't give me an estimated bill and my Smart Meter still doesn't work. They know there's a problem but seem to think it's a their end not here. 

206/365 - 25th July
We got the new Sky Q box and it took some getting used to but I am liking it. Everything is there on the box instead of having to use the xbox for things like Netflix & Disney+.

207/365 - 26th July
The Thai-Style pork patties cooking. I originally got the recipe from Gousto but it's a firm favourite in our house now. 

208/365 - 27th July
We got a chippy lunch. I ordered online and sent the kids to pick it up. Chip butties all round.

209/365 - 28th July
We were all home today. Both Stu and Becky had a day off work and we decided to go and see my dad. It's been ages since he last saw us all at the same time.

210/365 - 29th July
The wildflowers in my garden are getting a bit wild but the bees do love them.

  1. I'm glad Stu has settled in at his new job, the bonus sounds very nice.
    Happy new Sky Q day! Hehe. We have Sky Q too, it's great isn't it?! There's always something worth a watch.
    The pork patties sound amazing, I haven't tried these yet so I will be looking out for them on the upcoming recipes.
    Have a lovely weekend. xx

  2. Glad the new job is going well for Stu. The pork patties sound nice - I might try and find a recipe for them.

  3. Getting a full month salary always make the new job look better. :)) I watched Virgin River and it was a nice, not too complicated and sometimes cheesy and predictable, but good if I needed a bit of time-off from my studies.
    That sunflower of yours look amazing. I should remember for next year, when I will have to replace some of the flowers that will not make it through the winter.

  4. Wow, three types of sunflowers! I had no idea there even are different types. Sounds like you had a good week overall. Congrats to Stu for his first full month's pay.

  5. Your sunflowers and wildflowers are so pretty. Good idea to submit the meter readings each week – energy prices seem to be ridiculous at the moment especially with estimated bills. Lovely to have a day with everyone at home together. #project365

  6. I'm not sure I really knew there were different types of sunflower! Glad that Stu's hard work is paying off especially those early starts! #project365

  7. The wildflowers look great. We have failed with out sunflowers this year. I think we planted them too late.
