It’s been a good couple of weeks with the highlight of a holiday to Rome in the middle of it. This did mean my phone memory got overloaded and I ended up unable to take a photo for a couple of days!
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 290 – Sunday 16th October – a day which largely revolved around a two hour round trip to pick my eldest from yet another Explorers camp. Did I mention that I really hate driving? My younger son and I had a Pokemon Go walk in the evening, which we haven’t done for a while. I took this photo in our garden. I’ve no idea what these are, but they’re welcome autumn colour!
Day 291 – Monday 17th October – my daughter and I went to an open day at our first choice girls’ grammar school, which reminded us why it’s our first choice. And I got a phone call: ‘How quickly can you get my boots to me?’. That’s the third Monday out of four my younger son has forgotten something and, yes, I know I really shouldn’t take them to him!
Day 292 – Tuesday 18th October – my eldest’s mocks are in December, so he really needs to start revising after half-term. I got him a couple of books to get him started.
Day 293 – Wednesday 19th October – we’re off on holiday to Rome tomorrow, so packing is happening!
Day 294 – Thursday 20th October – my younger son’s 13th birthday! It was an unusual one, as we set off for Heathrow to fly to Rome as soon as he’d finished opening his presents. We offered him the chance to go on holiday a day later, but he liked the idea of going on his birthday.
Day 295 – Friday 21st October – our first full day in Rome! We went on an open top bus tour to see all the sights. There are so many incredible buildings in Rome. This is the Vittoriano and I fell in love with it!
Day 296 – Saturday 22nd October – after a failed mission to visit the Vatican City, we decided to visit the Vittoriano and took the lift right to the roof. The views were spectacular! I would recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.
Day 297 – Sunday 23rd October – we did the thing you have to do when you visit Rome – we visited the Colosseum! It’s such an incredible building, inside and out, with a remarkable history.
Day 298 – Monday 24th October – sadly, it was time to head home. We spent most of the day travelling. I had to take pictures of the kids’ breakfasts. Who can guess which is which?
Day 299 – Tuesday 25th October – a day of unpacking, shopping and endless washing. I actually managed to squeeze a little bit of work in too. I’m cheating here as I couldn’t resist sharing another Rome photo. Look at that weather!
Day 300 – Wednesday 26th October – the suitcases are still out on the landing and I’m still struggling to get on top of the washing. I went a lovely walk with the kids and couldn’t take a single photo as my phone is so full.
Day 301 – Thursday 27th October – my daughter went to a drama workshop and my younger son spent the day with friends, so I was actually able to do more than a couple of hours’ work for the first time this half-term.
Day 302 – Friday 28th October – another day with my daughter at a drama workshop, another day of work and another day of my phone refusing to let me take a photo!
Day 303 – Saturday 29th October – I finally deleted enough photos off my phone to be able to use it. All five of us started Parkrun this morning, the first time since my husband’s bike accident, although my eldest hurt his knee and didn’t finish.
