Project 366: 47-60

The second half of February:

Imagine photo here
16th February: We might not have gone out on Valentine's Day, but we hadn't eaten out together for a while so The Doctor and I got a babysitter and had a meal at a Mexican restaurant. (It was the darkest restaurant we've ever seen!! I spilt candle wax all over the table trying to read the menu - I'm just glad I didn't set anything on fire!!) The photo shows the outside of the restaurant, with the name clearly visible.

17th February: Yay! I have indeed been selected to give away books again this year, as part of World Book Night (which this year is also happening in America and Germany, I believe?) I'll be giving away Pride and Prejudice :)

 18th February: A bookish kind of day! This varied selection kept me reading busily for a few days...

 19th February: I did the reading in church that day.

 20th February: The Boy's room was too big a job to get finished during half term - on this day we had the walls made good ready for papering.

 21st February: Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day! Yum :)

22nd February: More cookery by The Boy! We enjoyed vegetable curry for dinner :)

23rd February: The ceiling and woodwork now painted and the walls covered with lining paper, The Boy's bedroom was looking a lot better - and nearly there now...

24th February: Shh, don't tell Asda!! ;) I visited Sainsbury's to check out their range of Mexican food (we got a taste for it in LA last year).

25th February: We met friends for lunch at a nearby town. It was cold, but we had to have ice cream from this place! And my eye was caught by all the bikers outside...

26th February: Time for a second coat of paint on The Boy's bedroom walls!

27th February: As part of my photography course, we had the opportunity to go on some photo walks round the local area. Unfortunately most of them clashed with my work commitments, but I managed to join this one round a local park. Here you see the class teacher explaining some principle of photography to us!

28th February: We made paper flowers from book pages in my papercrafts class.

29th February: Leap Day! And what luck - The Fabulous One had a bit of free time which coincided with my own bit of free time that afternoon, so we met up for tea, cake, chat and plenty of laughter :)

That veggie curry looks gooooood!!
You did the same as us for Valentine's, we also ended up in a Mexican restaurant on a completely different day LOL
The paper flower is beautiful, great project!

Love the book paper flowers! Need a tutorial. And can't wait for that book giveaway... imagine this... I was an English major in college... all my courses were on various bits of literature... and yet... I've never read Pride and Prejudice!

I've got books to give away too this year and I'm pleased to say it's a different book from yours - yeah!
Great catch up x

That's a nice peep into your world, Mel! The decorating looks like it was a success: always nice to have a fresh coat of paint....

Oh my Mel - I hope you didn't call them bikers to their faces! Those are most definitely scooters and, judging by the number of mirrors and the parka with badges on the man on the right, they look like Mods to me.
I guess you're a little young for Quadrophenia so you could be forgiven.

LOL I thought "scooters" too - must be showing my age!
Congrats on the book giving - I made it too :o)

Cool selection of books - my Dad, Princess & I all read Georgette Heyer, I've been enjoying some of the Trisha Ashley too.
