The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 11

No time to blog this week (apologies to my new #blogclub buddies) so this is just a quick synopsis of a sunny (yay!) week in the Rollercoaster household. We had school trips, sunny days,science festivals and sewing along with a girlie gossip night, the usual drudgery and a dying boiler. But I did take quite a few photos so I may just have to give you a collage or two...

School Trip to Butser Ancient Farm, Hampshire
I went as a parent helper on Bigger Miss's school trip to Butser Ancient Farm. It was a great day - cold but a fab trip - we did spinning, fencing, made mosaics and jewellery as well as had lunch by a fire in a roundhouse. I also loved the lego mosaic in the reconstructed Roman house - you can see it above - how cool is that?!

yellow Celandine flower in the sunshine
I enjoyed taking some pics of wildflowers for a change and I loved this Celandine reflecting the sunshine.

spring sunshine for the school run
Little Miss pretending to post some letters on a sunny school run home :)

Pink Camellia flowers
Zoomed in on a rather lovely pink camellia in someone's garden (not mine unfortunately!)

Robin's evening song
Loved this little Robin singing his heart out on a very tall post.

a March Moon
The moon was so large and clear I had to do another moon photo! 

National Science and Engineering Week 2014, STEM festival Bohunt School
Today we went to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Festival at a local secondary school. There was loads to do including Titan the 7 foot Robot, making rainbows in test tubes, playing with spiders and army equipment amongst others. There was almost too much to do as there was no way we could do it all - a great free afternoon's entertainment. What a start to National Science and Engineering Week 2014
easy sewing projects- needle case, gift bag and badge
Lastly Bigger Miss and I squeezed in our local sewing workshop where we made a couple of simple sewing projects.
For some more sunshine filled weeks go visit the Boy and Me:
