It’s been one of those fortnights which, excuse the cliche, can only be described as a roller coaster. Every day, I’ve felt like I’ve had less and less time to get a grip of anything.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 186 – Sunday 5th July – with her brothers on Scout camp, my daughter got to choose what to do today. First we took the guinea pigs to church (it was a service for pets), then we went to the outdoor swimming pool, despite the fact that it was only 20 degrees and cloudy.
Day 187 – Monday 6th July – anyone else find it annoying that they take loads of nice photos at the weekend and can only post one, then end up posting a rubbish one on Monday? It’s a year since I started Roaccutane. If I’d known that I would go to hell and back on it, I never would have touched it, but I’m still on it now as it’s the only thing that will make me better.
Day 188 – Tuesday 7th July – I started the day thinking I didn’t have much work on. Then a big rush job came in. This is the pile of paper on the floor after I’d finished proofreading it at 11pm!
Day 189 – Wednesday 8th July – our 15th wedding anniversary! We have a bit of a tradition where most years we go to London for the day to see a show. This time it was The Book of Mormon, which was hilarious and highly recommended (if you’re not easily offended).
Day 189 – Thursday 9th July – we went to see my son’s brilliant leavers’ play.
Day 190 – Friday 10th July – my younger son’s SATs results came out. It’s safe to say, I was very pleased with them.
Day 191 – Saturday 11th July – I stepped way out of my comfort zone and went to work. On a Saturday. For a very long day. At a hill climb event. As you do. Here’s a work toilet selfie to prove it – check me out in my branded polo shirt and lanyard!
Day 192 – Sunday 12th July – another very long day of working at the hill climb. It was great to be out of the house and working with human beings, but I was exhausted at the end of it. This is the Beast of Turin which broke the land speed record in 1911 and gives off flames as it drives!
Day 193 – Monday 13th July – I was very happy to be at home working slowly and quietly as I was so tired from the weekend. My daughter brought this lovely piece of Tudor-inspired pottery home from school.
Day 194 – Tuesday 14th July – a lot of work and a big school uniform shop while M&S had 20% off. It’s remarkable how much uniform three kids need, even though two of them are staying at the same school.
Day 195 – Wednesday 15th July – school sports day!
Day 196 – Thursday 16th July – I managed to run eight miles for the first time since last year – it’s time to get in training for this year’s Cheltenham half marathon.
Day 197 – Friday 17th July – the last day of the school year and my son’s very last day at primary school!
Day 198 – Saturday 18th July – after a crazy couple of weeks, it was time to catch up – with work, with blogging and with cleaning (yes, I really do have a bathroom as horrible as that!).
