A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 52. The week that we celebrate Christmas and I have no idea what the day is. I even got confused when New Year’s Eve was, not that we had any big plans to welcome in the New Year. I haven’t had to think about work and I was able to keep my work Mac switched off the whole time.
Project 365 – 2021 Week 52
The excitement that Santa has been. There weren’t as many gifts this year which confused Ethan but that is because they both got Nintendo Switches. He loves the opening of gifts rather than what’s inside. But as they get older the gadgets they want will cost more than the toys. They did get everything they wanted on their lists so everything turned out OK.
We had a busy Boxing Day spent with grandparents. Such a contrast from last year. I took this photo of the children when everyone had left. Playing Animal Crossing together on their Switches.
As we had a buffet lunch yesterday, today I made our Boxing Day dinner today. We have cooked ham, mash, pigs in blankets, stuffing and pickles. This dessert was a chocolate mousse. We were meant to have this on Christmas Day but I also picked up mini Rulhoph cakes from Marks and Spencers which was the firm favourite for Christmas Day.
We finally made it to my brother’s house for a visit. We had to cancel our last trip when Ethan caught covid. I honestly thought they would put restrictions in place so we wouldn’t be able to visit again. Little E loves her Christmas gift of cat ear headphones. The lights flash and everything.
With both children having Lites I can finally claim my Switch back from Ethan. I will be able to start my Ring Fit Adventure journey again. I might also be building my own island on Animal Crossing.
Ethan was desperate to create his Lego gift today. This is the first full lego set that he has ever built on his own. He did need some support from me with the little bits but he followed all of the instructions himself. Even when Little E needed my time Ethan carried on building it by himself.
Ethan made sure Little E built her Lego gift today. He wouldn’t leave his sister alone until it was made. Little E needed more help than Ethan. Lego doesn’t quite hold her attention yet.
That was our 2021 Week 52 adventure. You can read about our weeks 49, 50 and 51 here.
