Project Life Tuesday: Feb 20th - 26th; and the giveaway winner!

The Mom Creative

It just wouldn't be Tuesday without a Project Life link up! I'm so pleased I'm keeping up with it far more this year. Even though this is my first week where I missed a photo (whoops!), I'm being far more organised about the whole thing, and therefore enjoying it more too!

On with the week!

Monday 20th: I was so excited to be back at school....that I completely forgot to take a photo! Ach well, first skip of the year won't do too much harm. It was a day of teaching and maths and silliness and admin. A good day.

Tuesday 21st: Pancake day! After work and my JLL meeting I tootled home to make pancakes with lemon and sugar for Matthew and I. Delicious! I only learned to make pancakes a few years ago, and they are definitely something of a treat in our household.

Wednesday 22nd: The lovely Eileen had been unwell and off work, so I popped by for tea and to bring her cake and chat. It was lovely to catch up as ever and to hear all her exciting news! That blue rabbit mug is my favourite!

Thursday 23rd: Speaking of favourite mugs, this is one of the ones I use at school each day (the others being a Charlie and Lola one which read "But excuse me, that is my mug" and an 'I Love Spreadsheets' one), and probably my favourite. One of my pupils made it for me last year as an end of year gift and it's so me - on the front is a badger, on the back it says "Miss T you are the best! Thank you for a great Year 4!", and the inside of the mug is purple (one of my favourite colours, and the colour I mark in). I love it!

Friday 24th: All the beautiful spring weather we'd been having seemed to call for some flowers! Yellow roses are my favourite. I also did the most popular Friday snack yet with the boys (tied with homemade cake!) - baguette, a selection of cheeses, and fruit. They really enjoyed it!

Saturday 25th: Would you just look at that sky? Such beautiful weather this weekend! Matthew and I are were both around for the whole weekend (who would have thunk it!) and we had so much fun hanging out together.

Sunday 26th: On Sunday we went for a lovely walk in the sunshine, through Primrose Hill and Regent's Park. Oh, it was beautiful! Seventeen degrees and sunny in February. We fed the ducks and saw this very cute squirrel who loved the camera (more pics in tomorrow's post!). Then we had a roast meal at our local before heading home to get ready for the week. Lovely.

I hope you all had a great week too....looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to!

  1. Holy wow! That is a huge pancake! Love it!

    Love that you included a picture of your favorite mug, that will be fun to look back on. My girls LOVED Charlie & Lola and I smiled when you mentioned that. They loved when I would talk like Lola. ;)

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. Those yellow roses are gorgeous. Just love them. Such a beautiful punch of color.

  3. I love these posts! And congratulations to lovely Sam.

  4. Oh, I so want a pancake now! Epic nom!

  5. Wow! Me? Did I win? Oh I am so happy :) Thank you darling Claire. Plus I really like the badger mug - so sweet! Did you know that Betty's (of tea shop fame) are doing Lebkuchen badgers for Easter? xx


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
