I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of August and that the end of the school holidays is coming round so fast! I’m not sure I’m ready for autumn just yet.
After our lovely holiday in Padstow and a couple of relaxing weeks, I was back to working hard this week, while the kids mainly did their own thing. There was plenty of Pokemon Go hunting as usual.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 234 – Sunday 21st August – work is going to start on replacing our horrible downstairs toilet in the next few days (but sadly not our horrible ensuite!). My husband has been doing some preparation by painting the walls and window frame.
Day 235 – Monday 22nd August – it’s less than three weeks until my daughter has her grammar school entrance exam. She’s been working hard towards it and we can’t wait for it to all be over!
Day 236 – Tuesday 23rd August – our nearest Pokemon Go gym is at the local church. Here’s my son having an evening battle there.
Day 237 – Wednesday 24th August – I went a walk in the countryside with my son for some serious Pokemon Go hunting, involving incense (it’s a Pokemon thing!).
Day 238 – Thursday 25th August – I hate the signs of autumn which have started appearing. I really don’t like winter at all, so I wasn’t pleased to see these leaves falling from the tree in my garden.
Day 239 – Friday 26th August – this little furry dude gave me a real scare today. I picked him up and he was making a very strange noise when he breathed, so we had an emergency trip to the vet. It turns out he had a little stick stuck behind his front teeth, so hopefully he will be OK now.
Day 240 – Saturday 27th August – I had to miss Parkrun today as I needed to get a 10 mile run in as part of my training for the Cheltenham half marathon. I’m pleased to say I completed it for the first time in two years. Excuse the blurry picture – that’s how many calories I burnt up. I will be hungry all day now!
