Project 366 week 2.



Sunday

Before Christmas we bought a few boxes of chocolates in case anybody wanted some. I opened the dark chocolate box and had been eating away at them one here and one there over the last few weeks. Hubby had been helping out as well, I came home today from work and found the box was empty with a note inside it.

my husband does make me laugh



Monday

Bob is back at gymnastics and so I am back on the gymnastics run. Went for a walk, yes in the rain, and then popped into the library to get my card updated. While I was there I picked up a few audio books to listen to.

Tuesday

Daughter has not been feeling well since before Christmas, finally got something off of the GP but was making her feel quite rotten. As SIL is back at work the other grandparents have been helping out so DD1 could go back to bed. I popped in for a visit on the way home. They love sitting up here, the watch the cars go by and knock the window as people walk past and wave at them, of course most people wave back which they think is funny.

Pop up a wee video of them sat up there. 
                                    






Wednesday

My turn to help out and look after the kids while DD1 went back to bed. Had promised them we would go for a walk. It was dry at the point but once we left the house we got a steady drizzle the whole time we were out. We went down to the fishery and back up.

Thursday

Today was visit day. There were snow warnings for the east of the country, and having found no way home last week I did not fancy a repeat of that this week so far from home. So we packed extra cloths, a blanket, a flask of bovril, and phone numbers for B&B's in the area and also the areas we would pass through on the way home just in case. It was cold and we did see some cars with fresh snow on round about Stirling but luckily it stayed dry all day. We decided as it was a crisp clear ( and absolutely freezing) night we would go and see the Kelpies, Made a collage of the different colours.

Friday

Have been sticking to my workouts, Doing two of them one after the other, all in all about 45 minutes. I appreciate they are level one workouts but taking it slowly considering my age and weight. But added hand weights into the first work out that does not require them and the heavier weights in the second workout which does call for them. All part of building it up. Got to be doing some good and along with my Slimpod I am hoping to see a difference.

Saturday

I have a real bad habit of leaving the light on when I am getting things out from the cupboard under the stairs. Drives hubby mad, so when I got offered the chance to write a review on Amazon for a motion detector light/torch it seemed silly not to say yes please.  It is great it switches off after twenty seconds and switching on when I open the door. It is more than bright enough to illuminate everything on the shelves and is also handy for reading the meter.

no flash used shows the brightness of the light

  2. Love the picture of the kids in the window and the kelpies. Very sensible to go prepared - even with the phone numbers of the B&Bs! The picture of the buggy looks pretty miserable. Hope your daughter is feeling better soon.

    1. always like to be prepared, cant think of anything worse than stuck for hours in tail backs with no food, water or a blanket in case the engine is off.

  8. Those Kelpies are absolutely astounding, how beautiful an image. I think it's very sensible of you to pack all those essentials in case of being stranded; I'd hate for you to be cold and stuck.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 366.

  15. Good luck with the Slimpod and weights. I'm also listening to my slimpod every night as I drop off to sleep. I have been listening to it everyday for 2 weeks and I can definitely tell a difference. I love the pictures of the Kelpies, they must be such a wonderful sight to see. Hope you have a lovely week x #project366
