Project 366 – Week 3

Sunday 17th January. We had some wussy London snow, so Shaun and H made snowmen. Teeny tiny snowmen. Melted by the end of the day snowmen.

Monday 18th January. Inspired by my old schoolfriend Nicky, I took a photograph of some of my football-related records. Yes, that is a Glenn and a Chris 7″ picture disc. Little did I know that a snippet of their marvellous song ‘Diamond Lights’ would appear on tv on Saturday night. Alas, Chris Waddle switched it off immediately. Β It is a selection of glorious songs such as these that one day my daughter will inherit, to ensure her life is even more enriched.

Tuesday 19th January. H is properly engrossed in Harry Potter at the moment. My concern is she’s competitive about it, wanting to finish the books before her friends – I’m not having any of that nonsense. She can just enjoy the books and immerse herself in the world!!

Wednesday 20th January. Went to see Les Mis in the West End, and loved being in Chinatown late at night, the smells and the colours and lights. Les Mis was good too – though I was disappointed Phil Daniels wasn’t acting that night as I’ve seen him on stage before, with the RSC and with Blur!

Thursday 21st January. Someone got her Stage 3 swimming badge – she was super happy about that!

Friday 22nd January.Β H finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I’ve told her to hold off Book 4 for now, and to have a break, besides she needs to do some serious reading for books we have to review in the coming weeks!

Saturday 23rd January. A lazy day – I was sick from work on Friday thanks to having an evil cold set off by many things, and I had hit the tired part of it, just wanting to lie down and nap all day. H had a party in the late afternoon (good timing!) and afterwards we got home and settled in our pyjamas to watch The Voice. With a lightsaber. As you do.

  1. What a lovely week – glad you managed to have enough snow to build a snowman – that mini snowman is very cute. H sounds like she is enjoying Harry Potter even if she is being a little competitive about it! Going to see Les Mis sounds fab – one of the guys from the musical theatre society I was involved in at uni is currently in it so I really must try and go and see it myself whilst he’s still part of the company! Hope your cold is better soon πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! Heh, and yes, tiny snowmen – looks like that might be all we get here snow-wise πŸ™

      Oh she’s obsessed with it – I ordered her a cape, wand and glasses which arrived yesterday – she has to improve her behaviour around the house and she can have them next weekend πŸ™‚

      I had no idea there would be no dialogue – it must be a really tough one to act. Ooh who does he play? They were all very good anyway!
