Week 33 of #Project365 13th - 19th August. A photo every day for a year!

We are all over Covid, well we're testing negative, feeling a bit better but we're still tired all of the time. Everything feels like a chore at the moment and despite eating loads when I was ill I have totally lost my appetite and interest in food at the moment which is not like me at all.

We haven't had a bad week, it was Stu's birthday and he had a great few days. We celebrated on his day off because he had to work his birthday. Hmmf. He was so happy with all of his cards and presents, he better not expect that many presents next year. hehehe

Now for a photo every day!

50 presents
A slicer and clock
Birthday cake and jam tarts
Opal fruits and Starburst

225/365 - 13th August
I got Stu 50 presents for his 50th birthday and Saturday was the day that I wrapped them. We did have a couple of mishaps with missing presents. Ellie had put a smaller one in a bigger box for safe keeping and it took a while until she remembered about it. Oops.

226/365 - 14th August
This week I missed taking a photo on Sunday. I don't know what I was doing with my day, nothing much from what I remember so you're not missing much.

227/365 - 15th August
Another random thing that Becky has seen online and bought herself. She only bought it for the grater part but to be fair she does eat a lot of cheese.

228/365 - 16th August
After about 15 years the living room clock broke so I bought a new one off ebay and it arrived. I love the colours on it and it matches the rest of the decor in the living room.

229/365 - 17th August
Stu's birthday cake. We had it a day late as we were too full from pizza on Tuesday.

230/365 - 18th August
I had leftover pastry from a pie I made so made some jam tarts and they went a bit wrong, the jam overflowed and made such a mess.

231/365 - 19th August
Starburst and fake Starburst according to Ellie. lol I had to explain to her that Opal Fruits were Starbursts until the late 90's when they changed the name. lol

  1. Glad you're all getting better, and that Stu had a good birthday despite having to work. I always find making jam tarts a bit messy too - I usually end up accidentally burning myself on the jam too.

  2. Love the 50 presents for 50 years, such a fab thing to do. Glad to hear you're all better now from covid

  3. Glad you are feeling better and testing negative now and hope that the tiredness eases soon. Sounds like Stu had a nice birthday. I love that you got him 50 presents for his 50th. Love your new clock. Ellie calling Opal Fruits ‘fake Starburst’ made me chuckle. I remember them being Opal Fruits too. Didn't realise you could get them though! #project365
