A Week In The Life Project – 29th October

comments 12

OK it’s Wednesday and still no Ali Edwards Week in The Life kit so I will just round off this series of posts with photos only (I think). Wednesday was a wonderful, long, ordinary type Wednesday for this household and I even had the chance to really try get the best of my DSLR on the count of not being as rushed as I usually am and working from home. I learned a few things and I LOVED some of the photos I took. I will tell you what it is about the ones I selected below that makes my heart sing. Yep sing. 🙂 All in all 144 photos between my DSLR and iPhone but don’t panic I will try to limit and control myself in this here post…. untitled (1 of 1)-205am – I will start off by saying that Tuesday did’t actually end for us until the early hours of Wednesday morning but as I crawled out of bed feeling I had only just laid down I spotted this. My son, nestled among our decorative bed cushions at the foot of our bed. The teddy in his arms … precious and thanks to this my first real smile of the day had already happened.untitled (1 of 1)-215.20am – There will be lots of visits here today. I’m struggling. ( there have been a few queries about the Script picture next to me here. It is an original by the lovely Jodie at Polkadot Creative ) I think this is the perfect spot for it in my kitchen.

6.50am – The angles, the way her feet don’t touch the ground the little frown on her face. This photo says so much to me.untitled (1 of 1)-237.10am – They’re off. The ‘other’ car. Everyone but me, I am staying home today. Yep I stepped out in front of the car in the drive. Imagine how many people have seen this view in their rear view mirror. First time for me.untitled (1 of 1)-247.40am – I am home because there is awesome fun to be had doing final touches for the routine rental inspection. Look at that floor shine. Like a mirror… Ugh.untitled (1 of 1)-2611am – And here is the inspector now. Yes I asked him to take the photo and explained why. He confirmed it was the strangest request he had ever received. LOL. The inspection received top marks. It always does but I panic and stress each and every time. For days…untitled (1 of 1)-2912.15pm – Lunch. Being at home alone means you can have whatever you like for lunch. Even Muesli with fruit, yoghurt and coconut. I could eat one of those now. One of my favourite breakfasts at the moment (or Lunch).untitled (1 of 1)-313pm – School pickup. I tell you she was so excited to see me waiting on the school grounds rather than just in the drive through pick up. He excitement and joy for life is infectious.untitled (1 of 1)-32

3.15pm – A rare catchup with my youngest Daughter’s teacher. We spoke about her of course but here I am actually talking to her about WITL after she commented about my “serious camera”. Talking, with my hands, still wearing my cleaning clothes.untitled (1 of 1)-353.30pm – After School sports. It’s the hair, the tongue and the feet one pointing down and one cautiously straight. untitled (1 of 1)-365.15pm – Next Stop – Homeuntitled (1 of 1)-375.45pm – Special Kitchen Helper. Each night a different child (they set the roster) spends one on one time with mum and no one else is allowed to help prepare dinner at this time. An idea I came up with a month or so back and they absolutely love it. No one ever wants to miss their slot. I love it for the help, the company and that they are learning a real life skill.untitled (1 of 1)-407.45pm – Lights out. He always loves to sneak in a few extra minutes. The curve of his fingers…untitled (1 of 1)-418.30pm – The stress at work and long days and nights have even caught up with the big guy. Sleep by 8.30. Right there. Among the vegetables! hahahaha!

Sorry.. it was a little longer than usual after all.

Until tomorrow.

    Wonderful photos Petra. I had a rare day at home yesterday too. Really enjoying seeing these glimpses.

  2. How lovely to see your ‘everyday’ photos Petra. You are a real inspiration to Project Life type memory keeping. I love your work.

    • Thank you Christine. I feel humbled for anyone to consider me an inspiration. x

  3. Brilliant. And stop on the apologies about the volume of photos. It is still not enough. There will never be too much.

  4. I agree with Michelle! There is no such things as too many photos. I love opening a post and seeing heaps of pics. Brilliant that you had a day at home not that it was a ‘day off’ as such. This day really shows that you just never stop and also shows how many hats you wear in your week. You are so very busy Petra and you manage to do it all so beautifully. xxx
