The Week That Was / Project 365 Week 27

We’re drawing closer to the end of another school year, which means two things: we are all frazzled; and our weekdays are dominated by one school event after another. This week saw a primary school music concert, a secondary school prize giving and numerous after-school rehearsals for the Hairspray extravaganza taking place next week. On the upside, we saw a whole lot of sunshine which enabled us to spend plenty of time outdoors.

Here’s what we’ve been up to in week 27 of Project 365….

Sunday - The Teenager and I took ‘It’ for a walk at our favourite haunt. A group of wonderful people recently decided to plant a load of wild flowers in the meadow. It looks absolutely beautiful. 
Monday - I bought this plaque at the women’s conference I attended last week. I gave it to The Teenager because if I could wish just one thing for her, this would be it. Growing up is tough in today’s world.
Tuesday – This was it, the moment we had all been waiting for – The Boy playing a duet on his baritone horn. There were about 200 people in the audience so he did really well. Only a couple of bum notes were detected ;)
Wednesday – A rare moment of peace and quiet in our lovely garden. 
Thursday – I went for a walk today with two very special friends. Such a wonderfully sunny day and the lake looked stunning.
Friday - With the girls at musical rehearsals almost every night this week, The Boy and I have enjoyed some down time together. Nothing better than a Magnum in the sunshine!
Saturday – The Tween had four friends to sleepover on Friday night. These gorgeous sweet peas were a gift from one of the mums. 
So that’s about it for us this week. I’m gearing myself up for a busy one of play rehearsals and performances every night from Wednesday through to Saturday! Did you spot Reggie last week? Here he was watching the World Cup with The Boy and his dad….
Can you see him this week?

    The meadow looks wonderful and a pot of sweet peas is hard to beat. We have ages growing in the garden this year and cannot wait to pick them :)

    Reggie is very cool :-) good luck for the sleepover. Lovely sentiment on the plaque, I can imagine teaching teenagers to ‘be themselves’ in this modern world is a tough job!

    Sounds like a great week; playing for 200 people is amazing, myself and my friend once played our clarinets for about half that many people and she got a nosebleed from the stress in the middle of our performance…happy times ;) Love the sweet peas too and for the first time ever…I’ve spotted reggie! #sharewithme
