Half Term projects anyone?

I'll be potting on cuttings etc., in anticipation of someday getting back to doing proper technicianing, with real class practicals - or having a pretty garden this summer!
 
moving sons bedroom to a larger room, so moving stuff, painting, cleaning etc. A bit of gardening and perhaps might build up my road bike. I bought the parts at the start of Jan but ive not been motivated to do it yet as ive been commuting on my gravel bike

Doing an orienteering course using MapRun so I can report back to the school (virtual) orienteering club

Volunteering at the local vaccine centre
 
Planning next term's Brownie meetings
lots of walks (we bought my dad a FitBit for his birthday this week and I've just challenged him to the bingo game, which obviously I need to win ;) :laughing:)
I might do some cuttings and repotting for school too, although I don't work holidays.

I don't work holidays either, but we got given quite a few baby succulents (or leaves with babies/roots just starting to sprout) for our STEM day, so the kids could make gardens-in-a-bottle, and we've got quite a few plantlets left - seems a shame to waste them.

That sounds fab, lucky you. Definitely can't waste them !
 
We were hoping on going on a nice weeks break doing some rambling and plenty of pub meals....... however in the real world I shall probably look at the garden, then decide it's too water logged and end up clearing the garage, assuming I don't loose the will to live and spend the week vegging.

Looking after the two monsters in the picture ! They stll wait at the the pub door after their walk thinking we are going in for a beer and dog treats . Very disappointed when they have to go home , I am too!
Maybe some Gardening and tidy the garage .
 
No half term here (in Australia) and have only been back at school for little over 2 weeks from Christmas. So while not a half term project it is still a project! I plan to, by Easter, have designed and created a dragon in a very soft, furry fabric. So far I am not inspired by Pinterest and really have a desire to design my own to my liking for a special 5 year old.

Sounds wonderful - will there be photos of the dragon?

I did some home organising and played lots of Animal Crossing & Mario Kart Home Circuit on my switch. I did a DIY on a S thing I have and really proud of how well it has come out.

Also the most important one - catching up on sleep
 
I did some DIY around the flat and put together the adult tank ready for my beetle grubs (Derby's flower beetles- they should be ready to pupate any day!).

My spiny flower mantises have moulted to adult over half term too so getting my setup ready to breed those. :)

Continued re-listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks with my flatmate (who has never read/heard them or watched the films because apparently before I came along he lived under a rock!) in the evenings with hot chocolate- we've just started Order of the Phoenix. It's really fun listening alongside someone who doesn't know what's going to happen. Almost like reading them fresh after nearly 20 years!

Also I did some knitting! Making myself a cycling balaclava with reflective yarn because it's blooming cold out there and still quite dark.

Basically I've been keeping myself busy. :)

Sounds like a lovely half term - animals, books and knitting, what more do you need :)

I read all the Harry Potter books over the summer, after reading the first two when they came out and wondering what all the fuss was about and giving up. I enjoyed them more this time !

Can we see photos of the critters ?! I was wondering the other day how Vanya is getting on.
