Project 366 week 44

Sunday

Using up holidays and had a weekend off work. Today was a beautiful day so we went for a drive down the coast and a run on the beach.



Monday

Bob decided he was going out trick or treating rather than going to gymnastics, so we took the dog a walk before it got dark.



Tuesday

DD1 wanted to go shopping and did not fancy taking all the children with her, so I said I would watch them while she went. Was not overly difficult as the twins have dancing on a Tuesday afternoon and daughter was back less than ten minutes after I picked them up. Bob helped with some Christmas stuff.

Spud can stand herself up now but cannot sit herself back down so will cry for you to sit her down, at which she crawls to a piece of furniture and stands back up again.



Wednesday

Another nice day, another walk with the dog. No this week has been no more exciting than that!!








Thursday

An early morning phone call from DD1 to see if I would go and sit with Spud and Minky whilst she took Dinky to the doctor. Minky was not at all impressed that I was talking to Spud and picking her up and giving her cuddles. I asked Spud to smile, so this was Minky smiling instead.






Friday

SIL was back up north for a few days, so her and Aunty M came for dinner.




Saturday

Had roasted some pumpkin for soup as part of last nights dinner. So decided to make some pumpkin and raisin muffins with linseed sprinkled on the top. Very nice they are as well, light, fluffy and fairly healthy as the pumpkin and raisins makes most of the sugar.

  1. That first photo is stunning! Spud is growing up so fast! I can't believe that she's standing up already. Those muffins look delicious.

  5. Can't believe Spud is moving around so much already. It will probably only be a few days before she can sit back down again herself.

  6. It looks like a lovely week even though it might not have been the most exciting! The muffins sound tasty - I was looking for linseed yesterday but Asda were all out. Your family life sounds so lovely - I wish mine was closer x

  10. Lilly loves to walk up at Failford, rarely any other dogs, and so much woodland to explore.
