Mama OWL Blog: Project 365 | W4

Project 365 | W4

Saturday, 24 January 2015

Here are our week four pictures for #Project365, don't forget you can follow us on Instagram via the hashtag #Shep365 if you would like to view our photos day by day.

018 - H enjoyed his giant mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows after a hot & bubbly post-rugby bath, all snug in his PJs after a very chilly match! He scored a try and got in some great tackles.

019 - I'm loving trying out different flavours in my smoothies and really have a taste for them now, I even got L to try a little sip of one that he thought just had fruit in it (I didn't tell him it also had spinach and kale in... Need to know basis I think!). For anyone with a child with Autism, you understand how tough it can be in regards to food and eating habits so that was a massive achievement.

020 - Everything is so grey and dreary at the moment, I cannot wait for the warmer weather to arrive but finding this little pop of colour in the hedge when I was walking the dog made me smile. Come on Spring!

021 - I'm looking forward to getting my nose into this book, written by my lovely clever author friend Rachael Lucas. Stick it on your 'must read' list!

022 - The Mister, A and I went to A's GCSE Award Presentation evening to collect all ten of her GCSE pass certificates - we are so proud of our eldest girl!

023 - Improving my diet means I need to find some creative alternatives to my favourite meals - I found a brilliant chicken korma recipe which meant I could treat myself to a 'fakeaway' on Friday night.

024 - Saturday was L's very first grading with everyone else. He's had one "in house" junior grading at his club to help build his confidence and prepare him for this event. It was very long winded (three hours, and his grade were the last to do it) but he sat on the bench the whole time, waiting patiently. A few times we saw him with his head in his lap and his hands over his ears (he does this to calm himself when he feels overwhelmed), and he chewed his fingernails almost the entire time (something he does when he is anxious, and unfortunately damages his skin too) but he coped amazingly, and we are so very proud of him.

    Well done to L on his judo, a big achievement for him as well.
    I agree need to know basis is a good basis to work on.
