#Project365 – Week 13

We haven’t done very much this week as I haven’t been at my best and now the kids are ill too. But here’s my week 13. 

Day 81

On Sunday we went to the Sunshine and Smiles World Down syndrome celebration. It was a great day and they had Singing Hands perform which was amazing too. I must say I was rather star struck when they tried talking to me and Baby and just didn’t know what to say. 

Day 82

My kids completely adore Lego and where so happy that these cane in the post while they were at school. 

Day 83

On Tuesday while I snapped this pretty cool picture of the clouds and the way the sun was shine and light them all up. I though it was beautiful. The amazing little things you see while on the school run. 

Day 84

I went into to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and while I was waiting to go down the theatre I thought I would share my sexy hospital stockings. 

Day 85

They said I should expect some swelling and bruising but I was shocked at how much my face has swelled up. They did explain that they had complications removing my bottom 2 wisdom teeth and had to actually chip away some of my jaw bone. It’s safe to say I look like a character from a beano comic. 

Day 86

We received this beautiful personalised apron for Baby from Isabella Peters in honour of World Down Syndrome week. I was so blown away when she offered to send Baby something and I must say it’s absolutely gorgeous and I am completely in love. 

Day 87

Last night I was tagged in a #widn post on Instagram. So I thought I would share my diet of the week. Soup! My face is really swollen and sore so eating isn’t easy, then add the stitches and I have no plans to be trying to chew anything for a while yet.

Day 88

The boys decided to build a Den/fort in their bedroom. I must say I’m rather impressed as they have done it all on their own. I had told them, if their really well behaved they can leave it up and both sleep inside it tonight.

So there you go that’s my week in pictures.  

How’s your week been?

A walk that turned into an adventure.

As I have said in previous post my boys have recently joined scouts.

T goes to Cubs on a Thursday evening and P goes to beavers on a Friday.

Tonight was P’s turn to go to beavers and because I don’t drive we have to walk.
From my house to the place where the scouts is held, is a good few miles walk away (If you follow the major roads).
There is a dirt road/walking path lead to the estate where the church is, it takes about 30minutes to walk there.

P loves it cause we go pass farms and cross over a level train crossing. I love it cause the views are beautiful. (specially on a clear day)

It always loads of fun and we tend to talk all the way (normally it’s me explaining why P can’t jump in muddy puddles).

Tonight was different though because tonight we used our imaginations as we walked along.
P had found a stick that and he was pretending to be a knight and was saving me from trolls, dragons and ogres.

He took it very serious and behind was jumping behind the bins and creeping round the corners.

Jumping out and pretending to sword fight with the cars, bushes and bins.

He was super cute with how enthusiastic he was. He kept saying he had to protect the princess (that was me).

We were able to play, connect and have fun. We weren’t just walking to scouts any more. We were on a quest to slayer the dragon and to over come dangerous obstacles as we make our way through the deep dark forest.

It was so amazing listening to his story and how he was making this normally boring walk into an adventure.

I am a little sad though now because that will probably be the last time we go on that adventure for a while. Because now the nights are getting darker, I don’t like walking down the dirt road on a night cause there aren’t any street lights.

I can’t wait for spring/summer to arrive again because we really enjoyed our like adventure.
