It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in the run-up to the end of term.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 185 – Sunday 3rd July – my family got home from camping and my daughter was the most tired I’d ever seen her. Only yesterday I said I hoped I’d run my last Parkrun in my old trainers and I was true to my word! I finally bit the bullet and got some new ones. They’re so comfortable they made me realise just how bad the old ones had got.
Day 186 – Monday 4th July – it’s that time of year when I’m juggling so much and feel like I’m going to forget something. There’s so much end of term stuff going on, plus planning for next term. So here’s a photo of next door’s cat in my garden…
Day 187 – Tuesday 5th July – I’m feeling really positive about my running at the moment. I ran six miles today and will hopefully sign up for the Cheltenham half marathon if I can run eight miles a couple of times without injuring myself. I generally had a very active day today. 10000 steps? I laugh in your face!
Day 188 – Wednesday 6th July – a quiet day with no work. I’m not too worried though, because I know I’m working at the weekend. We’ve got more flowers coming out in our garden. These are so bright!
Day 189 – Thursday 7th July – my husband and I had our annual trip to London to see a show to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This year we went to see Aladdin and it was brilliant!
Day 190 – Friday 8th July – happy anniversary to us! Sixteen years of marriage and we’re not at the point of choosing exactly the same card for each other…
Day 191 – Saturday 9th July – a very rare day for me working away from home. Even rarer of course because it was a Saturday! I spent the day at Chateau Impney Hill Climb, which is a fantastic event. This year there was a free vintage funfair, which looked so old-fashioned and quintessentially English, especially with that threatening British summer sky!
Day 192 – Sunday 10th July – another long day working at the hill climb, surrounded by the most incredible and quirky cars.
Day 193 – Monday 11th July – a quiet day recovering from the hill climb. A load more flowers seem to have come out in the garden while I was working.
Day 194 – Tuesday 12th July – I got a phone call from my younger son’s school in the afternoon to say he’d hurt his toe. It turned out it was broken!
Day 195 – Wednesday 13th July – my son couldn’t go to school in the morning as he could hardly walk, but he dragged himself there in the afternoon for his drama performance. His toe is looking worse!
Day 196 – Thursday 14th July – my daughter’s school sports day. She won her relay and did pretty well in her long distance race. For the umpteenth year running, I came second in the mums’ race.
Day 197 – Friday 15th July – my younger son’s last day of term and he also had his grade 1 guitar exam, at this rather cool looking studio locally.
Day 198 – Saturday 16th July – it’s nearly two years since we had the window frames painted on the front of our house. We’ve just had the back done and it looks a hundred times better than the old brown wood!
