Project 365 2023 Week 38, 39 & 40 Days 259-279

A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2023 Week 38, 39 and 40. These September weeks brought with them some adventures. We sailed on a paddle steamer down the River Thames. Used our Silver Merlin Pass to visit LEGOLAND Windsor and Chessington World of Adventures. We also took Little E to a cat cafe for a special treat and started to look at high schools for her.

Project 365 – 2023 Week 38

Day 259

Ethan was at his club today so we took Little E to the Cat Cafe in Halstead. I have wanted to take her to a cat cafe for a long time but the ones in London have strict rules. Meow Cat Cafe allows children in and even has special SEN sessions. Halstead isn’t that far from us so I booked us a table. Little E loved her time with the cats. Even Darren liked visiting the cats.

Day 260

We took my mum and dad to LEGOLAND Windsor today. It is a place my mum has always wanted to go. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t on our side so we didn’t stay for too long but they saw all that they wanted to see.

Day 261

Little E now has athletics on a Monday night. We all went tonight to help her settle in. I took my book to read whilst she trained.

Day 262

When we were on the cruise I took some of Little E’s old Disney dresses to give to another little girl. Their parents gave us some Percy Pig coins as thanks as I said I didn’t want anything for the dresses.

Day 263

Darren told me I have lots of petrol in my car. He told me it went to three. So I thought he meant the three white boxes which I knew wouldn’t last me the week. He meant to the number three which is more than enough. I sent him this photo to show him we need to mean the same thing when talking about the petrol in the car.

Day 264

Ethan brought home something he had been working on at school. They are reading a book about travel. They all made islands with lighthouses. He was very proud of his work.

Day 265

white blue budgerigar yellow green budgerigar cage project 365 2023

I took my mum to her sisters today. Friday is the day I drive into town to take Little E to her dance lessons so it was easy to stop at my aunt’s. I didn’t know she had budgerigars.

  1. Wow! What a catch up!
    The cat cafe sounds brilliant and the visit to Legoland too. That is amazing that you still have roses in your garden so late in the year and Little E’s love of salads. x
