365 #2 {Back to it...}

So it seems like Christmas was a lifetime ago and we are well and truly back into the routine of school and work.
I maybe counting down the weeks to half term already.
I am however determined to make the most of my days off at the beginning of the week before the mayhem of work kicks in.

Day 5
The rain stopped, for the morning, so we headed out to explore the floods. The kiddies spent a good hour wading through frozen puddles. It's the simple things that keep them happy.
Day 6
The kiddies were still off school so we baked. I may have had a small slice. For quality control purposes.
Day 7
I headed into Bath with the husband to spend some Christmas money and went a bit touristy and snapped the Abbey upon exiting Starbucks. I was also a bit excited to find myself buying a size down pair of jeans in Gap.
Day 8
Getting organised today ready for a little project I have going on. I have a new pen pal. I am a little bit excited about this and it has given me a great excuse to buy stationery. I am really looking forward to using pen and paper to communicate as I miss that anticipation of receiving a proper letter.
Day 9
Back to the early starts at work. I cannot wait to drive in in the daylight.
Day 10
Cake and cookie day! I did say I would avoid the staff room on Fridays to keep the temptation away. But sod it. I've lost 4lbs this week. I deserve a treat.
Day 11
The sun came out today. Garden jobs were a priority - my shack lost it's roofing felt in the recent storms - so the husband fixed that today. As a reward we went to my favourite local for a cider. The kiddies love it here too but I just wish we were in a situation where the grown ups could go to it more often. Alone.
 
I'm linking up with The Boy and Me so go and take a look at other Project 365ers over here...

  12. That top photo is completely spectacular, wonderful level that you've taken it from. See you can manage to take photos of things on your work days, have fun with the penpal.

    Oh goodness I used to have a pen pal...several actually. Writing letters is so underestimated these days with e-mail! That first shot is just awesome! That is a lot of water!

  14. You've got lovely photos :) Well done for losing 4lbs this week, I lost 2.5lbs and very pleased :) The Abby is beautiful, you are so lucky to be somewhere with a building like that! Enjoy receiving handwritten letters through the post, theres something fab about having a letter which isn't a bill come through the letterbox haha! :)

    Great photos - so lovely to discover some new people! I love the stationary picture (intrigued by the penpal) and also the pub - I also crave more visits to one (without kids!)

    I love your photos! Lots of colour and great perspectives there. I made a vow to write more REAL letters this year. Yet, so far have failed miserably - even the Christmas thank you letters remain on the to-do list!

  25. Such gorgeous photos. Cake looks delicious and I love the first photo. Well done for losing that weight, that is amazing and I love the idea of a penpal, it is true that we have lost the art of letter writing and it is a shame as I used to love receiving letters when I was younger.
