Project 365 week 52

Yeehhh done it, apart from the middle of the year when I was ill and did not take a picture for two days then this is the end of my fourth year of this project. So lovely to look back on and year five will be under way by the time you read this. It really is a fab project to join in with.

So here are my last twelve days of the year.

Sunday

Hubby was getting the decorations out of the loft and decided to dress up Floppy Bear to make him look the part.



Monday 


Really no idea how I manage it but constantly seem able to cut my finger no matter how careful I am with a knife, I was only cutting a piece of bread and managed to make a nice deep cut.



Tuesday

Had masses of things to do in the town. I was wanting a few bits and pieces for myself as well, but did not manage to find either the bluetooth headphones I want for watching the tv or the halogen cooker I was looking for. DD2 has said she will buy us the headphones for Christmas but have had to end up ordering them online.

As we were out so long we went for lunch at Wetherspoons, it was steak day, very yummy it was too. Manage to get the food shopping we wanted so was not a total waste of a day.









Wednesday

For years we have always made mince pies for Santa and allergy free biscuits for the elves. This year I was disappointed that Fifi decided she was too big to join us and make them. But Bob and I made biscuits and then the pies.






Thursday

Christmas Eve and so we took a drive down to take Gran her flowers, and dropped in on a few other relatives while we were there.





Friday

Christmas Day started out quiet but all that changed when we went round to join DD1 and SIL and the four children as well as the other grandparents for dinner and fun. Daughter had not been feeling well, think she had the nasty cold bug I had a few weeks back. We played games and had a lot of fun, the food was delicious and it typifies what Christmas is all about - family.






Saturday

I won these on Twitter, had the choice of any name but sadly could not get my blog name on them, that would have been fab, but love the novelty value of this.






Sunday

DD2 and 3 were over along with their other halves were over with presents and food ready for Christmas Day No2. We were tormenting the dog with a drone and some of the battery operated toys.




Monday

Christmas Day No2, a family event where the grandchildren get their presents from our side of the family. You can share our fun here if you want a look.






Tuesday

Do any of you remember the adverts for Douglas? There are plenty on YouTube, search for Lurpak and Douglas and have a good old fashioned giggle. Hubby had spotted the butter dish a while ago in a shop, so it came out the cupboard for Christmas,

Douglas





Wednesday

As part of the children's Christmas we bought them panto tickets, and so tonight we went off to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr. We had booked a table to get something to eat beforehand but sadly the only thing on their menu that Bob can eat they had run  out of, rather spoilt the evening. Bob ended up with crisps and an orange. we had chips and ate them in the car.
They really enjoyed the panto and asked can they go again next year, worth every penny when this is the end result.




Thursday

Well this is it the last pic of the year. DD3 prints a lot of her own items of clothing from pictures to writing. How awesome is this sweatshirt she printed for me for my Christmas? This is on the back.







Well folks that is it, year four over and done with. See you for Project 366 next year.

Happy New Year to you all and I hope 2016 is good to you.

    Looks like a good Christmas for you all. Glad the kids enjoyed the panto, although a shame about the food for Bob.
    Happy new year to you all!

  7. It sounds like you enjoyed a wonderful family Christmas Elaine. It is a shame that FiFi felt too old to make the mince pies and biscuits - in a few years she will want to do it again though. At least you ave lots of other grandchildren who can join in with the tradition in a few years :)
    wishing you a happy new year xx

  8. Looks like a very busy festive time with your family, so many wonderful memories and lovely photos! I don't know Douglas at all, but it surely is a cute butter dish. A pity Fifi didn't want to bake with you. And poor doggie too.

    1. You are too young to remember Douglas, the ads were brilliant.

    2. Don't think it's because I'm too young, lol. It was probably shown before I arrived to the UK (which was over 20 years ago).

  14. sorry i took so long to read and reply to the last 3 weeks of project 366, but with the adult children visiting and starting a new job I've had little time for anything, just about managing to keep up with posting a photo every day.
    Christmas looks like a load of fun in your house and certainly very busy
