Project 365 – January 17th – 23rd

January 17th
I loved Ally McBeal when it first came on. I’ve now got all the seasons on DVD (I found some of the box sets on Ebay for less than £3!) so I can start again from the beginning 🙂

The super wonderful husband and I started the big garden clean-up. Yes, that is a sprinkling of snow and yes it was flipping freezing but it has to be done and the sooner the better as far as I’m concerned.
This is the year where our garden looks lovely again and not like a dumping ground! The garden is what drew me to this house in the first place and it makes me really sad to see it like this.
We got rid of loads of old wood last Monday and cleared the path down the side of the house. Aiden thought it was brilliant that he could get his bike down there without risking life and limb when he got home from school!

Thank you to everyone who has helped me get to my highest Tots 100 rank 🙂 I was delighted to get into the top 100 and it’s lovely to be climbing higher and higher each month 🙂
ranked # 66 on Tots 100

I love wall stickers and these birdcage ones are gorgeous! I’m going to be using them and some whiteboard calendar stickers for each of the kids so we can keep track of their chores. Post to follow.

Ella was missing Kaycee tonight. She’d gone to Sheffield with the school to sing at the Young Voices concert and Ella wasn’t used to her not being here! She liked being able to watch her Barbie movies without Kaycee complaining about them though!

Kaycee had a great time at the Young Voices concert. She didn’t get home till about 11.30pm and she was shattered at school the next day but it was a great experience for her 🙂

    I was only thinking about Ally McBeal the other day and freaking out about how long ago it was I Used to watch it at Uni! We are at the garden sorting stage too – it's that time of year I feel 🙂

    The tots 100 ranking is great, you only get there by working hard, so well done.
    Its amazig how sibings fight and argue yet miss each other when not there.
    Daughter No2 likes Ally McBeal – that was a good bargain.
    Our garden needs a lot of work as well, hopefully now the fences are up it will happen this summer.
    Commenting on behalf of Project 365 as well as myself.

    Oh wow! I haven't seen Ally McBeal for years! I forgot all about it. They need to show it on TV again!
    Sounds like a great week! Well done on the Tots score x

    Well done on your bargain box set and your TOTS ranking

    Ahhh Ally McBeal! Now that series brings back many happy memories! I loved it too! I recently bought the Friends Box set and have been ploughing my way through them. I also enjoy watch the new series of Birds of a Feather and would love to re-watch all the earlier episodes again.

    Well done on starting your gardening too. I cannot wait until the Spring when I can get out there again. I hear it is going to be mild until mid week then turn cold again so I am holding back! Lovely to see the snowdrops popping through though!

    Glad to hear Kaycee enjoyed her concert!

    Enjoy your week Shell xxx

      I LOVED Friends and had all the seasons on VHS but gave them to my brother when we got rid of the video player. I've now got the boxset on my Amazon wishlist!

      I also had Buffy and Angel on VHS and plan to get the complete collection on DVD soon. I'm a bit of a TV addict if I'm honest!
      I love the new Birds of a Feather and I could watch all the old ones again 🙂
      Hope you have a great week Tracy xx
