Day 348
Some gardening time with the boy this morning finally planting the daffodils for next Spring.
Day 349
I had some leftover condensed milk - so pleased to find a non nestle tin in Waitrose - and made coconut macaroons for the first time. They were so delicious!
Day 350
Last school walk of the year - I can feel my waistband getting tighter already.
Day 351
Tonight the girl taught me how to make a huge 3d snowflake.
Day 352
I've spent the last 48 hours wearing my angel halo to work - it's putting me in the festive mood!
Day 353
Last day of work! As tradition dictates as soon as I got home the lurgy struck so medicinal marshmallows and hot chocolate were called for.
Day 354
Out in the fresh air to clear us all of germs, we headed up to Dyrham Park where we got close to the deer - photos to come in another post - and watched the most beautiful sunset. No picmonkeying needed at all for this snap.

Have a wonderful Christmas Project 365ers and readers!

Linking up to The Boy and Me...
