Project 365 – week 16.

The first week of the Easter holidays is drawing to a close.  It’s been a week full of laughter, fun, new experiences and the odd tear along the way.  The sun has shone all week and has lightened everyone’s spirits which has helped the long car journeys we have done again this week.  Dad of 3 and myself are shattered and so are the children now but we now enjoying a couple of relatively quiet days compared to the last three weeks.  Here’s what we have been up to.
Sunday 13th April – 
We were very lucky to be invited along to Legoland for the opening of Pirate Shores, sadly it was complete but we had an absolutely fantastic day enjoying the rides and I even got to see the lovely Mummybird  
Monday 14th April – 
I can’t believe how grown up my eldest is starting to look recently.  I noticed today that he seem to have shot up too which probably means new clothes will be needed very soon.
Tuesday 15th April – 
We braved a trip to one of the local National Trust properties today, me and five children, I really don’t know why I thought it was a good idea!  I love this photograph of Trystan and Rowan though, it was taken before tantrums and tears kicked in!  
Wednesday 16th April – 
A trip to Cardiff provided us with the perfect opportunity to stop at another National Trust property.  It’s somewhere we spent a lot of time at with the older two when we lived in South Wales and before the National Trust took over.  We only had twenty minutes after stopping for a picnic but it reminded me how much I love the place and that we really need to go and spend a day exploring it very soon.  
Thursday 17th April – 
A couple of weeks ago I made the decision to try Bento lunches with the younger two.  Rowan especially is a grazer and often doesn’t eat much.  But in the three weeks or so since starting to make Bento lunches I’ve seen an improvement.  I’ve also been making them for Erin and one of my minded children and they two have been enjoying them.  Today’s lunch was ham Rabbits and Teddy Bears, Teddy Bear cheddar, mini cocktail sausages and mini scotch eggs.
Friday 18th April – 
We’ve had a relatively quiet day today, a leisurely morning with a trip to our local B and Q for supplies to make a start on the chicken enclosure.  Dad of 3 constructed a gate and stained the gate and posts ready to start work tomorrow.  I did the ironing and then enjoyed cuddles with Erin while I caught up with the news.  
Saturday 19th April – 
Today has seen dad of 3 working on the chicken enclosure while I did some baking.  I made two coffee loafs, two lemon drizzle and one chocolate loaf.  Two of which were then delivered to my parents much to my dad’s delight.  In the meantime Dad of 3 dug out eight holes and concreted posts in place.  He also completed the gate with chicken wire.  Fingers crossed the concrete hardens over night so we can run the chicken wire along the posts.

    Wish you’d had the chance to explore Dyffryn more, but the photo sat in front of the pond at your local NT place is gorgeous.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.
