Project 365 week 13 - 23rd March - 29th March

Week 13, into April on Tuesday, have to say loving the lighter nights and the fact we can get out after tea with the children. If its just us we often have tea at seven or eight o'clock so we usually go for a walk before tea.


Daughter No 2 stayed over last Saturday night as she was going to a wedding fayre on the Sunday. So they went down to see the kids on Sunday morning, and left Jack behind. Here he is sitting looking sorry for himself when he was left. He was going to Stirling on Monday for an operation on a ligament.

OH and I went for a walk round Auchencruive Estate as it was a nice evening. Took various pictures but liked this blossom picture best. Nice to see the spring is finally springing.



Have fancied trying geocaching for a long time. Now I have a mobile that picks up a data signal when I'm out and about I decided to give it a try. There are not many caches near us but I decided to give it a try and go and see if I could find one. Well this was as close as I could get.
A local Facebook friend had seen this picture and said she also fancied trying it. We both agreed it would be fun to take the kids, but decided to get our own heads round it first. So we went out on Thursday and managed to find four of the six we looked for. Will try it once more this week together and then take the children out during the upcoming Easter holidays.

could not find the cache


Last week when Fifi was over we put some daffodils in coloured water . We chose red, blue and green. For some reason so far only the blue has picked up any colour. One of the red ones has a very very small spot of red on it, but not enough to photograph.  I also got a picture of a sunset while I had the twins out for a walk for  an hour to give daughter a break, but I didnt have a card in my camera and I cant find a lead to connect it to my computer, so cant pull it off to share it.

Fifi went back to school tonight to be an unpaid skivy  a helper for parents night, to show the  parents round and do what ever else was needed. So Bob and I took a walk round the fishery. I had emptied the memory card on his camera and we set off to take pictures. I half wish we hadn't it was freezing, but we went all the way round the pond regardless.

I did have another picture lined up for today, but I got a phone call off of Fifi about half seven. I could hear Minky crying, Fifi reassuring Bob that Mum was going to be all right and telling me that Mum was bleeding and feeling really dizzy could I come round. So with dripping wet hair as I was just out the shower,I threw joggies and a jacket on top of my pj's and went round. She was going to fill the coffee pot but had somehow managed to break it and give herself a deep cut on the back of her hand. The bleeding had about stopped so I applied steri strips to hold it together and she was fine. Fifi did a good job till I got there and was very calm about it all.

So while I was round I got this picture of Dinky, she is rarely without her dummy these days, yether brother wont take one.

    I've no idea what Geocaching is..I'll have to look it up and see if it's something to get involved in. :)
    It's great when children can remain calm and take control. Fifi must have been worried about her mum. Good job Nana came to the rescue :)

  19. The blossom shot is wonderful, but that sunset is magnificent. Lovely photo of Dinky, isn't she getting big now?
