Project 366: 17-31

And here's the second half of January:

17th January: Pesky cold weather :(

Imagine photo here
 18th January: Workers at a factory near us were on strike. We could see the picket line from our bedroom window (and hear the horns, too!)

 19th January: Poorly sick, bleh! :(

20th January: I wasn't feeling much better, but managed to get along to Messy Church with the kids. The Tomboy had a go at the 'balance as many dice as you can on a lolly stick held in your mouth' challenge!

 21st January: We welcomed a new member of the family - meet The Newer Hamster :)

 22nd January: We took a trip to a nearby city to enjoy the celebrations of the Chinese New Year.

 23rd January: The school kitchens were also celebrating the Chinese New Year with a special meal. I gave it a go, but I really should have known better....

24th January: This week in papercrafts class we did some origami designs. My class particularly liked these little origami boats, set within the folds of an accordion fold card blank.

Imagine photo here
 25th January: I did my tax return online, taking a photo of the screen once I'd completed it all!

26th January: What a lovely surprise! Some time ago I'd won a competition and been asked to choose 4 colours of paint from a new PaperArtsy range. For various reasons there was a delay in sending my prize, but when it did arrive Leandra had sent me 15 bottles of paint instead of the promised 4!! Many thanks, Leandra - all is well and truly forgiven!!

Imagine photo here
 27th January: I went to see a photography exhibition at a local art gallery. The photo shows the outside of the gallery, with a distinctive and identifiable name!

Imagine photo here
 28th January: Church had a meeting to talk about the Rector's resignation. The photo shows the church hall with the name clearly displayed.

 29th January: I helped out at Sunday Club again.

 30th January: A hard day at work! We decided to have a Chinese takeway for dinner.

31st January: An experimental shot, inspired by the previous week's discussion of shutter speed during my photography class.
