Project 365 17th - 23rd March

Gosh this is us into spring all ready, just somebody forgot to tell the weather I think. Again the snow has missed us, roads twenty miles east and south are shut and north passable with care.

It has been a cold week but we still went out and had fun.

Sunday

This little chap came wandering through our garden, same time as last year, just before ten at night, though the flash does make it look like  daytime.

Monday

We went off to our friends cottage again, we love it there and they are happy to have the company. We decided to have fun and we built a den, you can go and see the fun we had here. Bob decided afterwards he would have a seat.

Tuesday

Bob decided this morning that he was having far too  much fun to come down for breakfast. He eventually came down and ate his breakfast, looked and the clock and said "wow it is ten to ten" Seems no time since he struggled with on the hr and half hr not so long ago so I was pleasantly surprised.

playing jigsaws, really need to get him some more



Wednesday

OH has been clearing out moving boxes around in the loft and we finally came across this button jar, The button jar was my daughters favourite toy at her grandmas house when she was very young. With a button jar, a few plastic bowls she played tiddly winks, cooking, meals, learning counting, colours, sets. When my mum died my daughter decided this was the one item she wanted from her. At the time we were in the middle of moving house and this ended up in the loft. Well now it is down and in a pile ready for Monday.

Thursday

The cupboard and loft sorting continues and today I found my jewellery box. This was bought for me when I was eleven. It use to play Edelweiss, but no loner does. There are still a few bits left in it from way back when, a few pieces from Berlin are still in there. Way past their best but memories none the less.

past its best but still whole




Friday

Up visiting a friend, love the view she has out across the headland. But I often wonder why the very out of place red brick wall is in the garden of the white house. Does it have some historic context?

Saturday

Last night I made microwave cake and hazelnut custard.  You can read the post here.

  3. Poor little hedgehog as survived the winter so far.... Hope he wasn't caught outside when the snow came, he could freeze to death.... Maybe you haven't had the snow..

  4. The photo of the hedgehog is great. Such a lovely thing to see. I love the wheelbarrow photo, he looks so chilled out.

  5. How on earth do you get a hedgehog to stay still for a photo? Any we've had seem to go faster than rabbits to get out of human sight if they hear anything at all.

  7. I love the treasures you found in the loft and the hedgehog is very sweet. We had one in the garden last year, he used to sit there and eat the cats biscuits, the cats would just sit there terrified of it!

  8. he does look incredibly relaxed in his wheelbarrow but I can't imagine it was that comfortable!

  12. Woke memories for me too Elaine. I have a jewellery box that I had about age 11 too.. it winds up and has a ballerina that dances.
    The jar of buttons reminds me of my childhood. We used to play the same games as you and your daughter.

    1. mine was not posh enough for a ballerina, just music. This generation just dont not what they missing, if I was to give my grandkids a jar of buttons and empty dished to pay with they would get me carted away.

  13. ooh you've had a busy one! I love the button jar too - I remember my grannie and nana both having one (I think my mum may have them in the under stairs cupboard) - it;s made me want to start one now - lord knows I've enough buttons!!
