A Photo A Day – Week 6 Roundup

by on February 8, 2014

TheBoyandMe's 365 LinkyIt’s been another busy week this week – a day trip to London with work, a rather stressful play rehearsal where I forgot my script and had to borrow the director’s, and most of my spare time taken up with the admittedly highly enjoyable activities of cruising the local car dealerships, test driving, and weighing up my options for my new car. The week has ended with my making my decision and placing the order, but I’ll tell you about that another time. For now, here are my photos for this week:

Sunday 2 February 2014: My kind of Sunday lunch

One of our local Indian restaurants holds an “all you can eat” buffet on Sunday lunchtimes, and having friends staying with us this weekend was the perfect excuse for us to go.

Yummy!

This is how I found my family when I got home from work this evening

Tuesday 4 February 2014: First email

I had to travel to London for work today, and about half way there this little gem popped into my inbox. Although my daughter’s iPad has been set up for her to be able to send things to her father and me for a while, she’s only done it previously when she’s wanted to print something out. So I’m officially calling this the first proper email I’ve ever received from her :)

Wednesday 5 February 2014: Morning maths

This morning my daughter was practising her times tables before breakfast – crazy child!

Thursday 6 February 2014: Test driving

We’re on the hunt for a new car at the moment, and a certain someone has rather enjoyed helping us to check out all the possibilities.

Friday 7 February 2014: Bike riding

It was only last week that I shared a picture of my son riding his scooter on the school run. This week the scooter is out of favour and both kids have ridden their bikes whenever possible.

Saturday 8 February 2014: Passed her first ballet exam

Way back in November my daughter took her first ballet exam. Today she finally received her result – she passed. She is very proud of her certificate and medal.

I love these photos, your daughter is really clever doing her times tables before breakfast, and I think you have the next Jenson Button in your midst there.

I love that photo of them on the couch. Well done on the ballet exam…I did ballet right till it came to do the teachers exam…a great skill to learn I think, expressive, disciplined, an appreciation of the arts….

Sounds like you’ve had an eventful week – Monday was clearly very tiring! How wonderful to get your first email from your daughter and for her to receive her first ballet medal and certificate. Looks like someone’s been loving checking out all the cars :)

Well done on the dancing achievement Catherine, and what a lovely email to receive, especially when you’re not at home. I might have welled up a bit if that were me!

I see David’s getting quite fond of being on wheels, but perhaps best just to let you and John use the motorised kind for now.

I enjoyed your post :)
