Lsned days 4-6

Day 4 signalled our eldest sons first day at school and I learnt that you should keep the uniform out of the way on the first day. He wanted to put it on as soon as he got downstairs, he ended up being ready to leave at 8am when school doesn't start till 8.50am and we live a 10 minute walk away!

Day 5 Chinese supermarkets have really surprising prices 50 pairs of disposable chopsticks for 89p

Day 6 Remind me never to book appointments when hubby's been on nights and it coincides with school pick ups! Hubby had a mad dash to school to arrive only 5 minutes late!!

LSNED 2013 days 1-3

This year I had pre made a divided page protector mini book, already having put all the cards into the slots and carefully put it to one side ready for the 1st September, little did I know that I'd end up doing a 4-10.30pm shift on the 1st followed by 9.30-3.30 shifts on the 2nd and 3rd. So far I've not managed to take any photos relevant to the prompts or many at all for that matter as I've not spent much time with the boys. I'll go back and retrospectively take some shots.

For day 1 I'm going with the lesson of allowing potty training to happen naturally, as DS2 decided to sit on the potty which has been around for a good couple of months and do a wee today by himself and then tell us weee, weee yeah yeah!

Day 2 I'm going with There's an autumnal feel in the air

Day 3 it pays to invest in decent thick soled shoes when your on your feet a lot. I suffer with planter facilitus and wouldn't have got through the last 3 days without my clarks active air shoes!

I'm now looking forward to some exciting changes in the household as the eldest starts Primary School tomorrow and I'm going to enjoy a week off work and get caught up with my OU course!

Photography Scavenger Hunt

The 1st June signals the start of Rhina's annual Summertime Photography Hunt. I participated last year and loved it so I'm planning on taking part again this year.

I thought I'd make a good start yesterday as we were going into the City Centre to watch the Manchester Day Parade, but didn't take my list with me so off for a hunt to see how many I've managed to cross off.
Are you taking part?
