Days 216 To 222 Of Project 365

The week started off brilliantly with Poppy learning to ride her bike but it quickly deteriorated with both Poppy and Daisy going down with chickenpox. What a miserable Summer we are having although we are trying to be cheerful.

At least we have a big garden, it has been our saviour. We have been able to play outside everyday without affecting anyone else. I must admit my photos aren't the best this week. They have been so grumpy I just haven't taken many. But here they are anyway:



216. “Bye Bye Stabilisers” – we took the stabilisers off Poppy's bike today and I taught her to ride her bike. She was thrilled and we were all very proud of her.

217. “Living In A Box” – We are actually moving three doors down in a few weeks into a bigger house and can't wait. The girls have enjoyed playing with the boxes whilst I pack.

218. “Good Friends & A Horse” – We spent a lovely day with Jo and her boys today. We went to the park, for a walk, saw horses, stopped for coffee and gingerbread men and then back to their house for lunch and a play. They are moving away at the weekend and we are really going to miss them :-( Poppy started feeling unwell though and went quickly downhill once home. A high temperature and spots – the start of the dreaded chickenpox.

219. ” Spotty Poppy” – Yes definitely chickenpox – she's pickled.Worse than Rosie who had it bad. She feels dreadful and is very grumpy :-( Daisy has a few suspicious little spots and is very grisly too. Thinks shes getting it too.

221. “Making Bath Bombs” – I tried to cheer the girls up by making bath bombs with them today. They really enjoyed it (post coming soon) and looked good but they needed to dry overnight though so we didn't get to try them out. Instead they had a porridge bath (post coming soon).

222. “Daisy's Turn” – Daisy now has chickenpox too and isn't happy. She has lots in her hair but nowhere as near as many as the others on her body. I guess there is still time to get more. A quiet day at home but Jo and her boys popped over to say goodbye. It was lovely to see them but very emotionl when they left :-(


My favourite this week is day 220. “Want To Be Upright” – I took a few photos of Daisy today. She is a bit grumpy but just wants to be up on her feet all the time. Here she is pulling herself up again.

It was a quiet day but a lovely evening. I went out for pizza with Jo. It was lovely to just get out and have a girly night. Lots of chatting, a bit of wine. Perfect.



Lets hope it's a better week next week and all my girls feel better.

      It’s a bit of a pain but hoping the extra space will be worth it. Luckily my Dads going to take the girls off our hands overnight so we have a day and night to move the big stuff :-)

      Ha ha. She’s just used to them being there. I don’t hide things away and have ornaments & pictures out everywhere so she’s just learnt not to touch. She likes to pull herself up on the shelf though :-)

      We don’t have to move but this house is tiny. The house down the road has become available so asked to move. It’s only for a year but think it will be worth it. I kind of knew they would all get it but was hoping they wouldn’t. At least they’ve had it now xx

    Oh no not poorly again? Chicken pox is horrible but much better to have as a child. Still looks like a good week though and well done with the bike riding
