Week 38 One Daily Positive and Project 365

It’s been a very strange week with the Quuens funeral and a day off work. I’ve done a lot of thinking about my father and grandmother. The week really seems to have been very long then all of a sudden just ended.

259 Saturday Grand Childs birthday party with family and friends, home late, but had a lovely day. They helped make their own cake.

260 Sunday A lazy morning, coffee and food shop. Peter mowed the lawns and I signed into Google Classrooms to check out next weeks lessons, do some homework in preparation for homework club on Tuesday. I need to know what I'm doing before I start supporting. Peter went to bed in the afternoon, the time difference and travel has caught up with him. 

I'm drying this years sunflowers to collect the seeds for next year.

261 Monday A day of reflection and all day spent in front of the TV.

262 Tuesday Back to work and back on my bike. Day ended with a migraine and an early night. Some GCSE and A Level reading.

263 Wednesday All I can remember about the day is I was ready for bed at 8pm. Caught up with the soaps. 

264 Thursday Cycled to work and evening spent on the laptop. I applied for a new position in work, still as a TA but supporting a 6th form student with A level English and Religious studies. 

The 4 month old TV went all funny. a long call with Currys but they're collecting it on Saturday for repairs.

265 Friday I went swimming before work, did 40 lengths. Had my 6 month review in work, my line manager is worried I’ll get bored and leave. Promised him I’m not going anywhere, anytime soon. Evening spent with friend for chips and wine. 

I sorted through the toys. Top set fuzzy felt, circa 1970's from my old toys and bottom mid 1990's from the kids toy box.

  1. A very beautiful cake, it should be very good ☻

  2. You did a great job with the cake, it looks fab and what a fantastic collection of books. I remember reading Animal Farm at school and what a blast from the past the fuzzy felt is. x

    1. DIL and Grandchild made the cake, I just helped to eat it

  3. Oh I used to love Fuzzy Felt when I was a child. Nice to be able to dig it out again and compare the different decades.

  4. That GCSE reading looks intense. Isaac is doing to kill a mockingbird at the moment

  5. Ooh I remember fuzzy felt, not seen it recently for my kids :( #project365

    1. I had a look in the local toy shop, no fuzzy felt to be found

  6. Love the cake for your grandchild’s birthday. Hope they enjoyed their party. I remember reading Animal Farm and To Kill A Mockingbird for GCSE English as well. Interesting to see how fuzzy felt has changed over the years. We have a couple of sets at home although it doesn’t get played with much anymore. #project365

    1. I rotate the toys for our grandchild so they don't get bored of the same things
