More project 365

I will be working backwards again!
Day 30 Numeracy @ school. This is the story of Little Red Riding Hood as created by year 2. I love the wooly wolf! It has a grid on it because we used it to teach co-ordinates.
Day 29 A yellow rose from the bouquet Mark gave me for my birthday.

Day 28 My Birthday! I treated myself to a cupcake so only one candle. Any more and I would have had to make sure the fire brigade were on standby.
Day 27 There was a sale at the local gorgeous shoe shop. I ended up with a pair of shoes, a pair of boots & a pair of slippers!

A new week = new pictures

Here are my next batch of photographs for Project 365. I am, yet again, behind!

Day 26 - Monday. The first job of the morning is to change all the reading books for my class and remove letters, homework and lunch money from their book bags.

Day 25 - Sunday I spent the afternoon teaching Grace to knit. She is making a scarf in basic knit stitch. We will progress on to purl. Not too many drop stitches!

Day 24 -Saturday This is my lovely cat Daisy. She is trying to hypnotise me into giving her more biscuits. Something she does every evening! Doesn't she look serious.

Day 23 Friday TGIF! This is a picture of our trays at work. Mine is usually full to the brim! I must tidy it out more.

Day 22 - Thursday Weigh in day at salsa. I lost 2lbs this week. I thought I would illustrate this with 2lbs of fat!

Day 21 - Wednesday Every morning it is the TA's job to lay up the trays with milk and juice ready for morning break.

Days 19 & 20

Catching up again............

Day 20 - Obama's big day. The children and I sat and watched the inauguration of the 44th President of the USA. I took this picture as he was sworn in on the TV.

Day 19 - out with the knitting. I like to knit a scarf at this time of year. I have started with a twirly one. I will take another picture in another few days when it has grown.

Busy week

Well here we are on Sunday night and I am trying to catch up with my project 365 pics. They are in reverse order I am afraid.

Day 18 Zoe's bump I took lots of photos of Zoe today. She is 32 weeks now.

Day 17 Rosie & her FLIP

Day 16 I love You - my lovely boy tells me he loves me.

Day 15 Salsa Exercise Class - I have lost 2 1/2lbs

Day 14 - another rainy day

Day 13 - Jake makes another animation

I will try and post daily this week. I hopefully will not be quite as busy - we live in hope.

Day 12 A letter to the editor.....

This letter was in our local paper and I am delighted to say it was us who brought Christmas to this lovely man. For three years now a group us - five families - go carol singing. This year we raised £150 for Christian Aid. I am so pleased that he enjoyed it so much.

Days 9, 10 & 11

I have loaded these in reverse order. This is Day 11 - A Trebuchet. Jake had to make one for his history homework. It looks even better now as we have made the joints more secure with twine. They are having a competition to see how far he can project a ball across the room.

Day 10 was back to the diet. I will post my losses as I go. I am going to Salsa exercise. I am not the most co-ordinated but you certainly work up a sweat.

Day 9 was supposed to be a picture of Paperarts, however, the fog prevented me getting there. I did set off and got as far as Fossebridge but at this point the traffic slowed to 10mph. I have never driven in such thick fog. It was a bit scary. I returned home and lit my Christmas Yankee Candle - they last forever - and snuggled up on the sofa with Mark.
More tomorrow.

Days 6, 7 & 8

Day 6 Back to school. Coats hanging up in the cloakroom on the first day back.

Day 7 Putting away the Christmas decorations. It is a long job wrapping up the hearts and the angels. We have 17 angels now - one for each year Mark and I have spent Christmas together.

Day 8 - Woolworths looking sad. I thought I had better take a picture before they come and take the sign down.

Day 5 - running late

Due to technical problems I did not post last night. But we are all cabled up now and here is yesterday's pic. Back to work and a day spent planning and organising. I have to write everything down in my notebook or I forget. I have still to edit today's pic.
I have just got an early birthday present - a polaroid pogo printer. I am going to try and use it now and print off some little pics to put in a little mini album.

Day 4 A Cold & Frosty Morning

It is a really cold morning. There is a thick frost covering the whole garden. I popped out in my PJs to grab a quick pic before it melts. Although it looks like it is here for the day. It is my last day before I go back to work. Two weeks has gone so fast! How many shopping days until Christmas?

Have a look at this link This is a link to the Ukscrappers Project 365 chat.

And if you are up to some more challenges have a look at this

I am going to go and print out some pictures and if I am organised I will post my first pages later.

A morning out with the kids to Aston Pottery Although it was cold outside the sun was shining through the window of the cafe. It was slices of cakes all round. I guess the title of this picture should be "the diet starts tomorrow". I love the pattern on the mug. I am thinking of using the colours for my new kitchen.

I found this website that looks very interesting and will be posting challenges for 2009. It has some fun ideas.

I have been putting together my double page layout to show off my first week of project 365. I will take a pic of it tomorrow and post it for you.

My photo of the day. I got out my Christmas books today and made a start on the Dawn French one. It is written from the heart and is very honest. It is a lovely idea to write letters to people you love. In this day of quick emails and texts the art of letter writing is dying. I can't remember the last time I got a letter in the post. Maybe I will have a go at writing some this year.

Day 1 and I have two photos for you !!!!! Only 364 more days to remember.
Happy New Year and may 2009 bring everything you wish for.

This is my Day 1 . We went to the cinema to see Bedtime Story. It was great. Fun for all the family. I did however manage to empty an entire box of popcorn on Jacqueline, who was sitting on the seat in front of me.
