As you’ve probably realised I’ve slipped behind slightly on my Project 365 posts. This is mainly due to being so busy lately. However I didn’t stop taking photographs. So now I am playing catch up over the last few weeks. So as not to bore you all with one huge post I’ve decided to break it down, so I now have a couple of posts.

With the weather now turning colder, the children are spending less time out in the garden in favour of walks to the park or wildlife centre. So this means that the chickens can now have some free range fun! They have a really good sized enclosure as it is but during the winter months we let them into the main garden several times a week. Today the girls got to free range for the first time in months.

Today I decided to attempt gingerbread men for the first time in years. Needless to say they didn’t last long at all once dad of 3 and the children spotted them! So I think it’s safe to say they were a hit!

Granny found this very sweet Mrs Claus outfit in one of the local charity shops today for Erin. As soon as Erin saw it she insisted on trying it on and wore it for the rest of the day! We had a few strange looks on the afternoon school run!

The last few weeks have seen me take a break from Bento style lunches for Rowan, mainly due to being so busy. But Rowan has started asking for his special lunches again so today I made an effort to start preparing his lunches the night before again which also gives me an extra five minutes to put them together.

The last week I have noticed Erin spending more time playing with her dolls house. This evening she spent almost an hour playing with it and I watched as she found other toys around the playroom and took them back to use with the dolls house. The boys each in turn went to see what she was doing and she refused to let them join in as she’d usually do.

The evenings have become a little bit colder the last two days so the heating has been turned on for an hour each evening. Kitty seems to be appreciating the heat and has taken to sleeping on a beanbag next to the radiator. Something tells me she’s comfortable!

Today was a day for catching up on chores and relaxing. We’ve a very busy couple of weeks ahead of us so I’m trying to be organised and keep on top of things. Kitty seemed to think it was funny to jump out of anything she could and make me jump! The boys thought it was amusing every time I squealed as she jumped out at me!

This afternoon the younger two enjoyed some time playing the the Dinosaur Train characters we’d been sent to review. Having seen a couple of episodes lately they thought these interactive toys were great fun.

I’ve spent so much time on Pinterest the last few evening, looking for various craft ideas for Christmas. The children decided they wanted to make Christmas tree’s today so having seen a craft using craft sticks I decided we’d give it ago.

This evening saw the town’s Christmas lights been turned on. Trystan sang with the school choir and I took the other three along to hear them sing. It was lovely to hear the children sing. We made a quick dash to a local chip shop to pick up dinner before heading home to enjoy it and then back out for Cubs less than an hour later! Needless to say we all slept well that night!

After the morning school run I called in to see my parents for a cup of tea. I arrived to find their dog Charlie sitting on the back of one of the sofa’s! Something the cat’s usually do! Charlie seemed to be enjoying his new spot while the cats watched from across the room.

Today we decided to make a start on our Christmas lights. For year’s I’ve wanted to have proper outdoor lights but dad of 3 has said no for various reasons. Last year we attempted to use Solar Powered lights but they’ll didn’t work very well due to lack of light so I was very excited when dad of 3 agreed to us getting some outdoor lights. The children were very excited and they looked lovely when it got dark.
