A photo every day for a year! 21st - 27th January. Week 4 of #Project365

We're so close to the end of January and I'm glad. It really is the longest month and I go between wanting to just sit and do nothing to being really motivated, I don't have any inbetween. Like yesterday, I had all the housework done by 10am, I'd put the food shop delivery away, opened my parcel from Wilko's and sorted that out, took photos for a couple of blog posts and started writing this one. Yesterday was a good day but during the week I was feeling meh! I am blaming the cold weather and the fact I have had some rotten sleep despite going to bed earlier. Ugh! I am sure when January is over my mood will improve.

I am looking forward to this weekend. It's the weekend where Becky is off work, Stu finishes work early and we're all home to spend tonight in front of the TV. I think we might be getting a takeaway too, a Chinese. I can't remember the last time we had a Chinese takeaway so it seems like a real treat.

Now for a photo every day!

Oil heater and turkey joint
Kids kitchen utensils
Harry Potter Hedwig Lego
Vegan bar and garden seeds

21/365 - 21st January
My dad gave me this oil heater a couple of months ago and it's my favourite thing in the house at the moment. It is great if I don't want to put the central heating on to heat the whole house. I put it on in the living room and it's warm pretty quickly. I don't know about the cost of it yet as we haven't had an electric bill since we started using it but it has to be cheaper than heating the whole house when it doesn't need heating.

22/365 - 22nd January
My dad got us a big turkey breast roast from Iceland when they were on offer after Christmas and it did us for 3 meals. 

23/365 - 23rd January
I was sent a kids baking set to feature on my blog and I took some of the photos on Monday. It really is a cute set, the post will be up next week.

24/365 - 24th January
I finally got around to starting the Harry Potter Hedwig Lego set.

25/365 - 25th January
I carried on with the Lego set and it was quite the challenge. 90% of the instructions were easy to understand until it came to putting the wings on. 

26/365 - 26th January
We tried out some vegan and free from chocolate. It was different but really nice. 

27/365 - 27th January
My delivery from Wilko's arrived. It was all stuff for the garden. Seeds, compost and a new little greenhouse.

  1. We've done nothing this January. Been nowhere, it's been very lazy, other than N's sport (and even that's been limited due to the weather). I love turkey for leftovers. So nice to cut meal prep short. Hope you've had a good takeaway - I've not had chinese for so long.

  2. We're having a whole turkey breast tonight for dinner and I'm hoping to get at least 2 meals out of it. But I felt very motivated today and had so much done by 9 I just couldn't believe it.... compared to Saturday when I didn't do much of anything!

  3. fab Wilko haul you have there. I need to start thinking about the garden soon. We never eat left overs unless they can be frozen for a dinner another day. Love a Chinese takeaway, so nice when you don't have to cook or wash up

  4. Love the look of that Harry Potter Hedwig Lego set. It does look challenging. Hope you had fun doing it. What a lovely selection of seeds. It’s so nice to start planting things. Good luck with your garden this year. #project365

  5. Sounds like the heater is working well. I hope it helps with the cost of the bills. I got that LEGO set last year. I wanted the phoenix one this year but we didn't give each other Christmas gifts this year. It is good the turkey lasted for so many meals #365

  6. January went soooo slowly! Love the HP Lego. Wow, can't wait for a garden update later in the year! #project365
