In last week’s Project 366 post I hadn’t even realised I stated week 39, clearly I was trying to back track on time. Though there is no denying it’s almost Christmas!
I’ve spent the majority of the week warm and snug in a onesie, I declare it is the only way to work! I’m low on on images this week as nothing has happened besides my weekly Aldi and Home Bargains trip out. Fun times! So what have we been up to this week?
Project 366 Week 50 – It’s Almost Christmas
We have been very fortunate that Liv hasn’t had to isolate from school this term. School seem to have it right and it’s working… they need to keep doing what they are doing! After school activities will take place next week so Liv will get the chance to play hockey once more before the end of the year. Odd how things are getting back to the ‘new normal’ just as we are breaking up for the holidays. Not so much of a holiday though considering all the exams and assessments she has as soon as she returns in January. Talk about hitting the ground running! Liv made flapjacks in school this week and the tray was half eaten by the time she returned home, the other half didn’t last long enough to take a picture sadly. However, it does mean she can make another!
Liv came home with this fabulous origami Christmas star from school eariler in the week. I’m grateful for the amazing range of lunch time and after school clubs she can take part in, something totally different. She will be heading to the Harry Potter club next week, I only wish I could join in!
Work has been work, you can certainly tell that everything is starting to slow down for the holidays. I would say it’s nice to slow down a little, but no chance! There is always something to do on the site, no-one gets to see all the back-end work and maintenance that goes into blogging. If they did, it would probably put them off!
The most daring we have been is an after Emmerdale trip to Tesco on Friday evening to have a wander round. It was quieter than expected and meant we actually had chance to have a good look at the Christmas treats and the offers available. We managed to pick up some super handy revision note cards, reduced to clear at £1 each. I certainly cannot argue with that, Liv just needs to use them now!
Crocheting is going well and a new delivery of yarn arrived this week for a birthday blanket request. There is no chance of me stopping now! The blanket isn’t as yellow as it looks, unfortunately lighting isn’t on a blogger’s side at this time of year!
It has been seriously hard to stick to Keto, with so many fabulous treats on offer. However plans are in place to make a chocolatey Christmas treat closer to the day. The diet can resume again in the New Year!
We had a chicken roast at the weekend, again with my Keto cauliflower cheese. I try to adapt the recipe each time and decided to top with my favourite crumbly Lancashire cheese for this batch. Tomorrow I will mix chicken bits in the cauli cheese and bake together, it make a fabulous hearty Winter meal!
Post has been hit and miss this week, I even had a parcel delivered by someone who had received my parcel, half a mile away! Come on postie… sort it out! Fortunately a special parcel did make it through this week and Liv was particularly taken with her Christmas card – as a Friday Night Dinner fan, she loved her ‘Jim’ Christmas card!
Karen has again been making me jealous this week with images from her new bathroom and cakes, not as bad as the picture of someone writing Christmas cards on a beach in the Maldives I guess. Still, new friends for 2021 me thinks!! 😉
Hopefully next week will be more action packed, with a walk out with my partner in crime to catch up on missing out this week! We will certainly need to wrap up warm though! What have you been up to this week? Are you prepared for Christmas and slowing down for the holidays?
