Week 17 Project 365

A good start to the week, we have working air conditioning, at last. I spent Sunday and Monday cleaning up after the workmen. Monday afternoon was spent with friends having coffee and on Tuesday after another repack of my case I flew to the UK, I made my way from St Albans on Wednesday to Newport. Thursday and Friday were spent decorating my mums house and garden and on Saturday my niece got married.

Imagine my upset when hubby phoned to say he was on his way home and asked what was for dinner? I was already to go out tonight for a meal as we always do the night before either of us goes away or the last night with visitors. But it's Sunday and I don't fly till Tuesday, I'm so confused with having weekends on Fridays and Saturdays, hubby back at work today. I'm convinced it's Monday, I'm convinced of it every single week. So tonights dinner was beans on toast and we sat in front of the TV together catching up with some sport and news.

This happened, the school bill arrived, for term 3. Isn't it lovely? NOT. On a positive it has encouraged me to start job hunting.

Day 111 #onedailypositive #season #fmsphotoaday #dinner #snaphappybritmums #project365

The only season we have in Dubai is summer. I haven't actually experienced a proper summer here yet and on my return from the UK I will be preparing to hibernate until October, minus a trip to Canada during Ramadan and the UK in September to my son's passing out parade. Apart from baking a birthday cake last week and a full Sunday roast for Easter, we are only eating salads unless we go out for dinner. So it's nice to have a cooked meal, even if it is on an aeroplane.

Day 112 #onedailypositive #mess #fmsphotoaday#OhWell #snaphappybritmums #project365 

I've flown over from Dubai yesterday for my nieces wedding. I arrived late at my parents tonight with a suitcase full of gifts and wedding decorations which I emptied in my parents lounge creating a right MESS but OH WELL who cares? I'll sort it all out tomorrow.

I'm making wedding favours for my nieces wedding on Saturday, the colour scheme is pink and mint. I used the additional chocolate to make princess lollies, but this one went a little wrong, so I ate it.

Day 114 #onedailypositive #FillTheFrame #fmsphotoaday #books #snaphappybritmums #project365

This is an archive photo from a wonderful weekend away to Hay on Wye for my birthday in 2013 with a very dear friend. Not only does it fit the two prompts perfectly but due to miscommunications over the past few days since I've been in the UK to attend a family wedding tomorrow, I found myself without a bed for 2 nights and my lovely friend came to my rescue, without batting an eyelid, despite it being her daughters prom tonight and welcomed me at 8pm last night with a (several) glass(es) of wine.

Day 115 #onedailypositive #ISitHere #fmsphotoaday #cloud #snaphappybritmums #project365

Staying with friends in Ross on Wye, so up early and off to Monmouth to my mums at 7.30am as my niece is getting married today. I sit here drinking my coffee, looking at a gap in the clouds hoping that the weather improves by 11am.


  1. Hope the wedding went well and the weather was nice!

  2. Glad you had a good journey to the UK and I hope the Wedding went well today! WOW to that school bill!

  3. all that travelling sounds tiring. I doubt I would cook much either but have to admit I do get fed up of cold rabbit food after a week of heat here so not sure how I would cope all year with it.
    Hope the blue skies won through and you had a good day for the wedding.
    What a fab friend to take you in at such short notice, sounds like a true friend.
