Week 8 of #Project365 18th - 24th February A photo every day for a year!

How is it the last week in February when January seemed to last forever? We have had a good week, just doing our normal thing. I have been watching a lot of TV, I do love it when there's a good run of new things to watch.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon decluttering and having a change around in the living room. I moved my arm chair and the sofa just to make things easier on Monday when Sky come to put the new broadband in. I really don't understand why we need a new router and cables but apparently it's going to be twice the speed for the same price. 

Today Becky and I are going to have the afternoon in front of the TV watching the latest WWE wrestling pay per view. It was on yesterday but I was busy, she was sleeping from a night shift and then there was a lot on TV to watch. I saw so many people from America not happy that it was on for them to watch at something like 2am as it was live from Australia. I have no sympathy, I used to stay up years ago to watch PPV's from America when they used to start in the early hours of the morning here, I would have a couple of hours of sleep and start work at 7am. lol

Now for a photo every day!

Giraffes and pizza
Seeds and meatloaf
My dad and hayfever tablets

49/365 - 18th February
Meet Getty, Gertrude and Gavin the giraffes. They have been named now. hehehe I got them on Saturday from town and they found a home on my shelf the next day!

50/365 - 19th February
We made our own pizzas. I bought the ready made dough but we put our own toppings on. They were so good, much better than shop bought one's.

51/365 - 20th February
I have started thinking about the garden and bought some seeds. I am determined to grow sweetcorn this year, they were doing well last year until we went on holiday and they died off.

52/365 - 21st February
Meatloaf! It was supposed to be lamb but have you seen the price of lamb mince? We went with beef and it still tasted just as good. It's a recipe that I got from Gousto.

53/365 - 22nd February
Stu rang when he had finished work and I went to put the rubbish out and saw the sunset, I had to ring him back after I had taken a photo! It just goes to show it's lighter on an evening as a few weeks ago it was totally dark outside when he finished work.

54/365 - 23rd February
My dad! He hates having his photo taken but this one was needed to renew his passport. It's scary how much I look like him now. I have his nose and my brother has his wild hair. lol

55/365 - 24th February
I woke up yesterday with a cold or so I thought, Becky said check to see if there's lots of pollen and it turns out tree pollen is indeed high at this time of year. It did feel more like hay fever than a cold as I had itchy eyes. I took a tablet and felt much better after a couple of hours.

  1. I love Getty, Gertrude and Gavin the giraffes, so cute. That sky is so pretty

  2. So nice now it's taking longer to get dark in the evenings. We always have meatloaf with beef (or a mix if I've got a bit of pork mince). Hope the seeds go well. I wonder if N would want to grow some veg this year, I might have to get some tubs and compost in case he does.

  3. The sunset looks gorgeous! Is your father planning any trips?

  4. That's a gorgeous sunset photo!

    It's good to hear you don't have a cold. I started taking hay fever tablets this week too. It feels like it's started a lot earlier than usual but maybe it's because the weather feels more springlike :)


  5. Nice to do some declutter and change things around a bit. Good luck with growing veg this year. What a pretty sunset. #project365

  6. Love the giraffes and their names. Good job you didn't inherit your dad's hair lol, can't imagine that style dyed pink/red ha ha. Good luck with the veg growing this year. I love a good declutter, can't believe I've still got a house full of crap with all the stuff I get rid of.

  7. My husband has started suffering with the hayfever. The giraffes are so cute! Loving that sunset glad the days are getting longer.
