Project 365 week 7

Sunday

Minky had had an out of hours visit from the on call GP due to him struggling to breath. A course of steroids will hopefully help.

I made some flapjacks, melt equal amounts of margarine and golden syrup in a pan, add chopped dried fruit, I used figs raisins and apricots. Add twice as much oats as margarine. Stir it all together. Cook at 160 oC for twenty minutes. Cut in tin while still warm and then tip out once cold. A nice soft flapjack.








Monday

DD1's birthday, 21 again, she was not feeling well and was not interested in celebrating it in any way at all. No gymnastics as our schools are on half term.
DD2 is coming down for a few days and wanted to book an en-suite room, jokingly told her it was booked ( we don't have one) and so we decided to make her one. An on suite is not as posh as and en suite.....lol. A bowl of water, face cloth and soap, a potty and toilet roll.







Tuesday

A nice wee win from a tweet.







Wednesday

Took the twins out to the park for a while so DD1 could get an hours sleep as she has had a few rough nights with the kids being under the weather. Bob did not want to come as he was not well either. It was too cold to stay out any more than half an hour, but went back and played for a while and left daughter asleep.





Thursday

A bit of emergency babysitting this morning while DD1 took Bob to an early morning doctor appointment. How can you not love these cute faces. Met up with a friend for a catch up.

Dinky was getting dressed and thought this was hilarious. Spud just walks towards the camera and Minky wanted to show me the robots on his tee shirt.

Dinky, Spud and Minky






Friday

Have had Ziggy and DD2 down for a few days. Is nice to see them as they live a few hours away. She is such a happy wee thing and makes happy noises all the time.

Ziggy being her usual happy self. 





Saturday

This turned up in the post yesterday. Had fancied going but could not afford to, so this is a much appreciated win.

Have been working away on my quilting, three quarters of the edge done but need to make a few more stripey squares to finish off the 4th edge. Apart from walking the dog no workouts done this week as my foot is very sore, going to have to prioritise a new pair of trainers come pay day.

Hope you have all had a good week.
