Project 365 – January 24th – 31st

January 24th
I bought this book for Ella from the charity shop because she was a bit upset that she didn’t have many new books for Christmas. Kaycee got the full series of Lemony Snicket books and Ella wanted a book of her own that she could read to us each night.

These new rhubarb and crumble hi-fi bars are absolutely delicious. They take me right back to being a child and buying a quarter of the sweets from the local shop.

The girls were hoping for a lot more snow than we actually got!

January 30th
We watched Lemony Snicket on Netflix because we’re currently on book 2 of the series.

I don’t usually add today’s photo because I normally do the post in the morning before I’ve taken the photo but seeing as it’s the last day of the month I figured I’d finish the month off.
We decided to take a trip to Donna Nook but it turned into a bit of a disaster!
It was fine weather all the way until we got there. The rain then started and soaked us all while the wind whipped around and almost froze us!
As we stood there, trying to see the sea and not being able to because the rain was going straight in our eyes, I turned to the girls and said, this is the worst trip out ever!
Thankfully we all saw the funny side and laughed :o)
We quickly got back in the car after taking the photo, started to come home and the rain stopped!
The highlight though was finding a farm shop where we bought 6 swedes (I stocked up because they’re a pound each from Tesco), 3 leeks and 2 bags of sprouts for a fiver :o)


How is it already February tomorrow?!

    the leaf photo is amazing, great detail and more to the point a great spot to take a picture of. Shame about the rain spoiling your day out.
    Enid Blyton books are amazing, both my children and my grandchildren have been entertained by them just as I was when young.
    Great make with the cakes girls, they look amazing.
    Hope all the work in the garden pays off come the summer.
    Thanks for linking to Project 365
