A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Weeks 29 and 30. The past two weeks have been the start of our summer holidays. Little E’s holiday started sooner than planned with the school closing due to covid infections. This did cause her some upset as I think she wanted more time with her friends. Our weekdays are spent at home as I work and we try to get out and about on the weekends.
Project 365 – 2021 Weeks 29 & 30
When Lost arrived on Disney+ I binge-watched it. I never watched it when it was originally on the TV. My Disney friend came round and I discovered her love for the series. She then told me about her love for The Walking Dead. Now I’m not a zombie film-watching person but with the whole series uploading onto Disney+ I thought we should give it a go. We are now binge-watching this series every night when the children go to bed. We love it. I’m trying my best to avoid any spoilers.
We visited The Harry Potter Tour in London today. Darren took me there for my 35th birthday but so much has been added. We had an amazing visit to the Wizarding World in Universal. Which Little E loved as a toddler. Visiting the Warner Brothers Tour as a family has been on my bucket list for a while. I was waiting for the children to be the right age. With the covid precautions in place, I knew it would make the visit better for Ethan. Luckily for us, the rules didn’t relax until the day after our visit. We had an amazing visit and the children both got to experience all of the interactive elements. They even flew on broomsticks.
Darren was at home today and Little E didn’t have to go to school. He took her out on her bike whilst I had my Monday work meeting.
Ethan was lucky enough to have his last three days at school. This was the last afterschool club collection that we had to do until September.
Ethan’s last day in juniors today. His last day at primary school. Thankfully his move to seniors is only upstairs. We didn’t have to apply for his secondary school placement and we had no leavers ceremonies. It suddenly hit me it was his last day in primary school that morning. I’m keeping everything crossed that the move in September goes smoothly for him.
We had to get Little E a new mattress. It is an Ikea one as they are the correct size to fit the beds. It arrived today and this is the only photo I took today.
Ethan is still wanting to play the switch. He isn’t really playing Animal Crossing the way you should play it. But he is moving around Little E’s island. Collecting items, talking to other people and sometimes hitting them with nets. He is happy and can be on it for a few hours at a time. If he keeps this up we will have to ask Father Christmas for his own one.
Ethan’s swimming club worked on distance swimming tonight. Ethan swam 300 meters without any swimming aids. We are so proud of him. This is the little boy that took quite a few years to work out kicking his legs would help him swim.
A day at Walton-on-the-Naze for our friends birthday celebrations. One boy is always happy in the sea.
Another day at home with the kids for Darren, another scooter walk for them to go on.
Work was quiet so I made sure I switched my mac off at my finishing time. I surprised Little E with a trip to the cinema the see The Croods 2.
Little E was given some Quick Milk straws. They have been quite the hit.
Darren took Little E to Aldi after dinner to pick up some missed shopping items. They came back with these flowers for our anniversary. Apparently, Little E picked them all by herself.
This is our Unity candle. It was lit by us, with the help of our mums, on our wedding day. I loved this idea as it wasn’t something I had seen done in the UK. It’s our 13th Wedding Anniversary today. Hopefully, it will be a lucky year for us. No real celebrations for us on the day this year. Last year we made an unexpected last-minute trip to Disneyland Paris. With Darren driving in France for the very first time.
That was our 2021 Weeks 29 and 30 adventures. You can read about our week 28 here.
