#Project365 Week Five

Day 26

Today was a family day full of cuddles together on the couch and catching up with some homework practice, I love today's picture of Ben, Elizabeth and Minnie all piled on Daddy!

Day 27

A long day in work. Chocolate was needed and it came in the form of Green & Blacks mini's; a third off at Waitrose...

Day 28

After work today was Date Night! I had some time to kill before my husband got to the City Centre so I decided to 'window shop ' the House of Fraser Sale.... This may not have been a great idea as I ended up coming away with 3 Dickens & Jones dresses. They are are beautiful but I can only afford to keep one, I'm still deciding which one!
We had a lovely meal at Olive Manchester and then went to see 12 Years a Slave at the Cinema, a very moving film that had me in tears throughout.

Day 29

On Wednesday evenings Ben goes to Beavers so I had some Mummy and Daughter time with Elizabeth, we played with Duplo, read some stories and had a dance, Elizabeth was all dressed up like a little ladybug and I couldn't resist capturing this photo of her admiring her wellies.

Day 30

My new toy arrived today! I have been researching and agonising for weeks over this purchase. I really want to improve my photography skills this year so I wanted a camera that would let me have more control than the iphone and point and shoot that I currently use. Although I would have loved a DSLR I had to be realistic about how far my budget would stretch and factor in the cost of extra lenses, I also wanted something that I could easily carry with me on days out so I finally settled on the Nikon P520 Bridge. I'm a bit scared really looking forward to learning how to use it properly!

Day 31

Elizabeth made this Chinese New Year card in Nursery today, she was very proud of it and delighted to have stir fry and noodles for dinner!

Day 32

We got up early for Baby Ballet today then had a movie day with a living room picnic (blanket and all) we watched Cars 2 and The Little Mermaid. I thought Elizabeth looked adorable in her ballet outfit and Ladybug Wellies so couldn't resist getting this shot of her knocking on the front door for Daddy as I'd forgotton my key!
