Project 366 Week 4

We’ve made it to the end of January! This is always a good thing.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 24 – Sunday 24th January – my husband’s car is in the garage, which means we are a family of five relying on a four-seater Mini to get places. This meant I couldn’t watch my son play football today. I got out for a walk in the morning and captured this reflection in a puddle.

Day 25 – Monday 25th January – my younger son spent most of the day yesterday (apart from when he was playing football) researching and working on his art homework for today. This is the finished product.

Day 26 – Tuesday 26th January – after my daughter got hit on the wrist by a football at school yesterday, I realised it wasn’t magically going to get better on its own. After a very long wait in A&E, they confirmed it was a sprain and she got this splint.

Day 27 – Wednesday 27th January – I went out for a meal with some of the other Gloucestershire bloggers. It was an enjoyable evening, but it was definitely a schoolgirl error to order pasta. This was tiny!

Day 28 – Thursday 28th January – the sunlight when I drive to pick my son up from school these days is dazzling. It’s beautiful, but very bad for driving! I took this while I was waiting for him to come out of school.

Day 29 – Friday 29th January – when it was so frosty last week, I was worried my daffodils would be destroyed, but I’m pleased to say they’re going strong this week.

Day 30 – Saturday 30th January – Parkrun selfie! I was pretty pleased with my run today. I was 13th female across the line out of a total of 435 runners, in a time of 24 minutes and 40 seconds. I also came first in my age category, which I always seem to do when I run without the kids!

  2. Well done on the park run time, great satisfaction.
    Yes the sun is rather low in the sky, but nice to see it.
    Hope her wrist gets better quickly.
    I avoid spaghetti when I am out as me eating it is not a pretty sight!!!

    • Thanks very much, her wrist is a lot better today. I know what you mean about spaghetti, I was rather aware that I can’t eat it politely!

  3. Well done on the park run, and I hope your daughters wrist heels quickly, sounds like a nasty sprain. Good job I didn’t get that as a main meal, I’d be eating the tablecloth! #366

    • Thanks very much, I was really pleased with my Parkrun result. The wrist was better this morning, thank goodness!
      Glad it’s not just me who can’t cope with small portions! One of the ladies was kind enough to give me a bit of her pizza.

  4. Well done on being first in your category!! And I hate when they get all fancy with tiny portions, i had a full English brekkie like that once. It was a tiny circle of scrambled egg balanced on one hash brown, I was gutted!

    • That’s very annoying! The most annoying thing with my pasta was that the pizzas were enormous!

  5. Well done on your park run time, it’s not surprising you do better without your kids with you but it must feel strange to run without at least one of them now! Glad your daffodils survived too.

    • Thanks very much! I run on my own about half of the time. My husband quite likes running with my daughter because running on his own tires him out too much!

  6. I hope your daughters wrist is feeling better….Ouch!
    So glad the daffodils have survived.
    Well done on the park run!

  7. Awesome Parkrun time! Go you 🙂 My pasta portions are 4x that amount – joys of running!

    • Thanks very much! I always run under 25 minutes when I run on my own. My pasta portions are four times that too!

  8. I tend not to order pasta when I’m out. It always seem to come as what I consider to be a half sized portion and I end up starving. Sometimes though I get tempted, but I usually end up regretting it. Loving the colours on the splint – does she have to wear it long?

    Post a Reply
    • Yes, that’s so true about pasta! Not sure why I haven’t learned my lesson yet. I have a big appetite and make myself a huge pile at home. She’s stopped wearing the splint now – they said to just wear it for as long as she felt she needed it.

    • Thanks very much. My daughter doesn’t have much luck, you’re right!

  10. well done with the park run, hope R’s wrist is improving and I hope this year this is her only injury after last year. The pasta is tiny, are you sure you didn’t order a child’s portion?

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much, her wrist is better now. It does look like a child’s portion, doesn’t it? It’s about a quarter of what I would eat!

  11. Hope your daughter’s wrist is better soon. Well done on your Parkrun time and love the photo of the daffodils – it does seem strange to see them in January though! 🙂

    • Thanks very much. It is rather strange to see the daffodils in January, but I love them!

  12. Well done on the park run time and coming 1st in your age category. Hope your daughter is doing ok with her wrist, that certainly looks a colourful splint. Lovely that you met up with other Gloucestershire bloggers, but agree that your pasta looks like a child’s dish x

    • Thanks very much. The pasta is ridiculous, isn’t it? It was good to meet up and have a chat though!

  13. Let’s hope the wrist mends quickly and good job on the park run times. Yum to pasta, but yes that is a tiny portion. I guess they go on the basis of a healthy mea;/

  14. well done on the run! Great time and a lovely photo of you too.
    That is a very colourful splint – i hope her wrist being out of action will not cause to many problems.
    that portion of pasta is small. I made the opposite mistake once when staying in a holiday inn (I think!) I ordered the pasta and it was huge! Like enough for 2 people! I couldn’t eat it all!! At least you had room for a pudding – i didn’t! xx

  15. Congrats on the run, loving the selfie! I hope your daughters wrist gets better swiftly for her! The first photo is very cool and the art homework looks great! x

  16. Well done on the Parkrun! I say this every week, but I must start running again! Glad to see from the comments that your daughter’s wrist is better.
