Week 15 #Project365 – 2015

I’ve had a lovely family week – seeing both grandsons smiling and laughing is enough to light up anyone’s day!

Easter Sunday – Son, DIL and grandsons came for Easter lunch. We had a lovely time together but it was tinged with a little sadness when DIL told us that her grandfather had passed away. She was feeling rather guilty for not going up to Blackpool with her folks for the funeral. There’s not much you say to ease the sadness.

Monday – We were going to go out for a drive but decided to have a nice relaxing day at home, tidying the garden and enjoying the sunshine.

Tuesday – With the demise of Orange Wednesday we’ve not been to the cinema for over a month. Tuesdays may be our new day as it’s cheaper. We are both fans of the Fast and Furious franchise so went to see the 7th installment. This time round they have Jason Statham after them to avenge his brothers death. I would have loved to have seen the production notes that said Statham was to square up to Dwayne Johnson!! Much of the film is far fetched and some parts defy physics but as long as you can park your brain and just watch it as good action entertainment you can’t go far wrong.
As you may know Paul Walker died whilst the film was still being made. They have done a great job of keeping his part going using body doubles and CGI and the ending is a really poignant goodbye to him.

Wednesday – Work day which was brightened up by the arrival of my Jord watch!

Thursday – Usual shopping day.

Friday – Work day -as we handle cash the office is security controlled and we have control over who enters the office. I pushed back in my chair to press the button to let someone in and I fell off my chair and bashed my arm on our CCTV cabinet. Top of my arm is pretty sore and a bruise is developing but what’s worse is that it was all captured on camera! There are a few people going to have a good laugh.

Saturday – early phone call from son asking if we would like to take Ashley for the day. Well we’re not going to say no! A bit of colouring and drawing first, then some time on my tablet. I never fail to be impressed with him on apps, we have one with a subgame of mazes and he guides the ball around and you can see that he’s working out where to go rather than just guessing.  He loves the CBBC app and The Furchester Hotel is his favourite on that one. BUT is absolute favourite is Angry Birds!
At lunchtime we popped down to see his Great Granny Mo and a visit to the park on the way back. Then it was back home to catch up with his Mummy, Daddy and brother.

Here’s a selection from the week and some extras from our time in the park.

    Loving the look of your hot cross bread and butter pudding in the slowcooker – is there a recipe for that one?

    • Sue says:

      It was my intention… When I was done I forgot to take a photo of it! Will be doing it again though and will post up then.
      Yo have to grease the rock pot first, layer the buttered bread with some died fruit, crack 2 eggs into about three quartets of a pint of milk, pour over the bread. Sprinkle some sugar over the top. Turn slow cooker to full, put lid on with a tea towel under it. (This stops the condensation dripping back own and let’s the top of the pud dry out.) Leave on high for an hour then turn to low for another two.

  2. I love the cinema and I have FINALLY got the husband to realise it is actually a nice way to spend some time – we went to Cinderella and he admitted he enjoyed it 😉 Days in the garden are always good 🙂

    Yay so pleased that the watch has come 😉 .. i am sorry your DIL had some sad news, but its nice that you were all there for her x

  4. Nice watch. Love the climbing frame photos. He certainly does look chilled out.

  5. Not good news for your DIL but I am sure the family will understand if she could not make the funeral.
    The two boys look so different, but then so do our twins. How nice to get Ashley for the whole day with such beautiful weather to enjoy. Great sunny park pictures.

    you new watch looks very smart and a bit different which i like. It looks like you had a wonderful family filled easter and having your grandson for the day in such lovely weather looks like lots of fun 🙂 and of course sprinkles are a must on ice cream x
