Well, as far as this week goes… I have no idea what day it is!
The summer holidays on the back of lockdown have meant that every day feels exactly the same as the previous! Emmerdale is almost like a gatepost as to what day of the week it is! Please tell me it isn’t just me!
Project 366 is going to be a little different this week… I’m literally just going to dump what we have been up to on you… sorry! 😉
Lots of backend work this week but I did manage to feature a lovely giveaway to win The Real Coco Chanel book. Whether you have an interest in fashion or not, it’s always nice to read more about inspirational people who shaped the world. There is no denying Coco Chanel was a pioneer in the fashion world. We have her to thank for ‘the little black dress’! If you want to know more, there are details on where to purchase the book… but definitely enter the giveaway for your chance to win one!

After a short break from using Instagram, I finally managed to upload 2 images this week! Fond memories from our recent break away in Wales were we experienced the most fabulous weather we could have wished for. We have had a few days respite from rain this week, but still not enough for my liking. I’m a definite sun bunny!

I’ve nearly finished my crochet blanket now and have more planned in the pipeline! Aldi have has some awesome wool bundles on their site recently and crocheting blankets has been such a fantastic way to clock off from all the madness going on in the world right now. Once Liv has gone to bed and I have finished work, I get to enjoy an hour of crochet with some cheesy TV. I am still loving The Real Housewives of New York City and now have Karen from Missing Sleep and other friends hooked too… I may owe them an apology!
We have had a few trips out to visit friends in a socially distanced manner this week and it has been much needed! Now more than ever due to the government’s decision on Thrusday evening to put Greater Manchester and a few local areas on a mini lockdown again. Apparently we aren’t allowed to visit friends in their homes or their gardens… but I can go to the pub and if a friend is in there at another table, shout over at them. Go figure. Absolute utter madness. Oh… and I could still go and have my haircut… but my buddies cannot sit 2 metres (plus) apart in my garden.
We have not let the craziness step stop us though, as we have taken a few more trips down our local walking path this week to inspect the Totty Snake whilst ending up in our local park (pictured above). People watching is a favourite pastime of mine and we had such a great vantage point to simply watch everyone going about their business in the park. Unbeknown to us, we also happened to be captured on a BBC North West piece about the Totty Snake! With over 5,000 painted rocks now lined up, it appears that we are heading for a world record… and we had a ‘blink and you will miss it’ moment in the news report. A highlight to our week! The peacock stone is a new addition and our favourite recent spot…
The lowlight? Watching Chelsea lose to Arsenal in the FA Cup final. I have no words at the moment… however this lovely lot do! Go and check out more Project 366 – Week 31 posts below…
