Taking a photo every day is harder than it sounds, and I’m only into week 02 of Project 365! But I want to pictorialise our family life as the children seem to be growing up so very fast and spending more and more time doing things out of the house & without us.
I’m also trying to make sure I have a photo with the children at least once a week month! Looking back at 2016 there was hardly a shot of me in the family unit, yet thousands of them! I’d like to get a better balance back – just in case my family ever need a photo of me!
So without further ado, here is week #2.
It’s dominated by experimental cooking (some of which will get onto the blog later), the school run and the snow that didn’t show!
Another lazy Sunday & I thought I’d give a recipe for making bread in the slow cooker a go. I think the recipe needs some adjustments…not one to share just yet!
Mon: 009 – School run
The kids were back on their scooters & me on the bike as we headed to school. At least it was dry but very, very cold!
Tues: 010 – Girls Together
Mademoiselle & I had some rare one-on-one time so we decided to try our new Christmas recipe book for Mug Cakes. They’re fun!
Weds: 011 – Lego Club
Signing them up to the free Lego Club means they get a new magazine every 8 weeks. Brilliant for encouraging them to read. Will publish review in the week.
Thurs: 012 – Comedian
The comedian in the family. Although it’s freezing outside I sometimes have to almost wrestle him to the ground to get him to put his coat on & wrap up warm! The promised bribe was a funny selfie with Mummy!
Fri: 013 – No Snow
Or lack of it! This was the extent of the snow which fell in the garden. Very disappointed Little Shires. Dadtired wasn’t tho, as he headed to the train station.
Sat: 014 – House Guest
Barnaby Bear from school’s is with us until midweek & he’s made one little boy truly happy.
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
