Project 366 week 8


Made a start on Ziggy's blanket, step 1 has to be making the tassels on the edge.


Took Bob to gymnastics, and while he was there I went for a walk. It was just beginning to get dark and I really liked this tower in the gloom.


Stopped in to drop a few things off that I had picked up for DD1. Minky was playing peek with mummy. 


Went round the watch the twins while DD1 went shopping. She took Bob to do the bending and lifting for her. Later on I went back to help bath them and then watch them while DD1 dropped Bob off at bowling. Here they were sat on the couch cleaning their teeth. They were quite happy to have me put them to bed and do stories. Just as well really as there will be more of it in the next few weeks. They have started arguing over who has which jammies for bed, I saved myself the problem and dressed them the same so no argument needed.


Went out to do some geocaching. Took a wander up to a trail up the top end of Darvel. Our route took us from just over 600ft to just over 1300 ft in height, up hill and down again, then back up. We encountered snow on quite a few stretches. I like the way this road seemed to join up with the sky.


Have sorted the threads for Ziggy's blanket so I can pop them into separate bags ready for use. When I got this kit it said the threads needed to be washed before use as some colours may not be colour fast, first kit I have ever known that with. All washed and bagged now. Just need to decide what is going on it and make a start.


When I was out caching last week the seam on my zip on my rucksack came away, so I treated myself to a new one. This one has an elasticated top so no zip to come away from the seam and has more than enough wee pockets for all the bits and bobs that were inside the other one. I was going into the sport shop for re proofer for my hiking boots, a cheaper option than replacing the boots when they are still good apart from that.

So that was my week. How was yours?

TheBoyandMe's 366 Linky


  1. I'm really intrigued to see how you make the blanket, shall enjoy watching that progress. Looks like a good rucksack and I agree about that snow picture #366

  2. I can't wait to see how the rug develops, looks fab.

    I keep wanting to try geo caching but never get further than thinking about it

  3. I love the look of the snowy path going up the hill - looks like it needs exploring. And the tower looks very American for some reason!

  4. Love the photo of the twins in their matching pyjamas! It sounds like a lot of climbing when you went geocaching. We still haven't seen any snow this winter, I don't suppose we will now!
    Looking forward to seeing how the blanket turns out.

  5. Will be interesting to see the rug progress. Sounds like a lot of work up front with the washing and so on.

  6. Good luck with the blanket making - if that was my house someone would have stolen all that wool

  7. The twins looks adorable - I love the babygrows!Sounds like you've had a busy week - loving the snow photo x
