Project 365 week 34

Sunday

Been doing bits and pieces of cross stitching. This is another one I have finished. Have to say it looks better from further away than it does close up.






Monday

The gruesome twowome started school today so I went down this morning to wish them luck and wave them off. They were both very excited. No tears at all. DD1 took them and brought them back this week, next week it will be a taxi, though DD1 not pleased that the taxi is exempt from needing car seats and does not use them. Sadly in the event of an accident that exemption wont save them!!

I hope they do as well as Fifi who did amazingly well in her exams this year and makes all of us proud on a regular basis.




Tuesday,

A normal day, housework, walk the dog and then watching these three for half an hour while DD1 re-registered the twins for dancing classes. Was easy to leave them with me that take them as she wanted to bath them before she went out and did not want to have to redress them. They both enjoyed it last year and wanted to go back. We read stories and played various games including pop up pirates.






Wednesday

DD2 came down to drop Bob back off, She had her twenty week scan before she came down. She is to go back for another scan in two weeks when she sees the consultant.

Got our Sky fitted today. Have to chuckle they turn up wearing a harness to enable them to climb approx three feet off the ground, a hard hat, with ear defenders and a face mask attached. The safety equipement was on the whole time the two of them were here, even when in the house.






Thursday

Little Miss Ziggy turns two today. I made a birthday cake for her and DD1, Bob and Spud came round for a while. We let Spud have a go at blowing them out as well.


Once they had gone home hubby dog and I went for a walk round the beach park in Irvine and did some shopping.

in the evening I went to my first Clean Up Tarbolton Woods Committee meeting.




Friday

Made lunch for work at the weekend.I am very unimaginative and really tend to rotate a similar idea most weeks. Difficult to come up with new things, with the limitations I have, but only thing I can guarantee is edible for me is the chips, and that is not my idea of a lunch at 11.30 am.

So this week I cooked up some wholemeal spaghetti, oven cooked some carrot and parsnip strips with a finely choped onion and a chopped tomato. I dry fried some turkey mince and stirred it all together with some egg fre mayo.

Made a sugar free raspberry jelly and stirred through some cooked fruit and left it to set.








Saturday

I had spotted an offer to try an electric bike, its a Home Energy Scotland initiative to encourage more people to cycle to work. They are offering interest free loans to buyone. I have spoken to them and I am going to borrow one for the three week maximum you can borrow them for and take it all over Ayrshire and blog about it.I am going for the foldable one so I can fit it in the car. Have told them I am not in a position to buy one but they are still happy enough to lend me one to blog about. This is one of the forms I need to fill in.

  1. I love the idea of an electric bike - will be interested to see how you get on. Hope the Gruesome Twosome settle into school well. It only seems like yesterday since they were babies.

  2. A big happy birthday to Miss Ziggy and I hope the twins had a good first week at school. Feels like school has gone back so quickly already! I like that the sky man has shoe socks on too. It annoys me when they just come in with dirty shoes on!

  5. What a week for you! Good luck to the little one's starting school. That does sound wrong that they won't have car seats in the taxi.
    hehehe! Sky engineers do go a little over the top.
    Happy birthday to Ziggy!
    Good luck with the electric bike x

    1. Ziggy enjoyed opening her presents, but a little to young to understand what it is all about.

  7. The twins look adorable in their uniforms. I wouldn't like the idea of them going in a taxi without car seats either. Happy birthday to Ziggy! Good luck with the electric bike.

  8. The electric bike sounds like a lot of fun and glad you can still trial it even though you won't be buying it. Happy 2nd birthday Ziggy, where has the time gone? Only seems like 5 mins ago you announced her arrival.
