Another busy week for us at the Oliver’s Madhouse, Its the last week of term for Beth so next week I have no doubt it will be busier still!

Sunday 10th February – Sunday is what I class as my catch up day, bed stripping, deep cleaning and ironing, Joshua like the empty ironing basket so its always fun when I get to the bottom!

Monday 11th February – After an eventful night over the weekend which led to us taking turns on Joshua’s bedroom floor to hold his hand through the cot bars. Monday morning my little terror thought he would have lie in!

Tuesday 12th February – Joshua and I walked with Beth to school to get some fresh air. Also I think Beth liked the idea as she is being bullied although she would never admit she liked it too!

Wednesday 13th February – Off Joshua and I went to the farm shop to get some ingredients for batch cooking on Thursday, glad we went early as it snowed again.

Thursday 14th February – I batch cooked spag bol, shepherds pie, lasagne and chilli today. We all had haircuts in the afternoon by the lovely Carl our mobile hairdresser too.

Friday 15th February – Was a lazy day, While I was catching up with emails and post reading Joshua played with his friend Doggy. I did have to explain later on that Doggy didn’t need to be washed in the washing machine!

Saturday 16th February – This morning Joshua came into our bed for a snuggle, I love Saturday mornings.

Hope you all had a great week too.

Project 365 Week 1

I have decided to take part In The Boy And Me ‘s fantastic Linky ‘Project 365  “A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year!”

It’s such a lovely concept of being able to see what this Madhouse gets up to in a year. The Rules for this fantastic linky are below:

  • Project 365 is your project and therefore it should be you taking the photograph.
  • Every Saturday at 8pm until 11.59pm on Sunday, the linky will be open to share a favourite photo of the previous week (or a weekly collage). Photos from a blog, Instagram, Tumblr, Posterous or the 365project.org site can be linked up.
  • Please include my 365 badge or a textlink onto the linked blog post or the sidebar so that people can find the linky more easily to see other entries and join in on the community. (badge can be found HERE )

I have chosen to do a weekly collage that i will post and link up with on a Saturday, however i have obviously been in a cupboard on my own this week as i only discovered the linky last night so this weeks is posted later than it should be!! sorry The Boy and Me!! I will however show support by visiting all the posts from this weeks to show some 365 love!
