If last week was the week of blossom, this week seems to be the week of tulips. It was a slightly strange week with my husband working from home on Monday and Tuesday as he was ill with my son’s virus. We also had a nearby road closure, which meant all the traffic was diverted down our road, which made getting out of the house a rather traumatic experience.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 92 – Sunday 2nd April – my son played in a cup final. It was against a team from the league above, so winning the game was always going to be a long shot. Sadly the dream didn’t come true and they were beaten 6-0, but I think they did very well to have even made it to the final.
Day 93 – Monday 3rd April – a quiet day of working at home. Unbelievably, my husband now has my son’s virus and we are heading for our fourth full week of 2017 with someone ill. So my husband was working at home too. This is our favourite tulip in the garden. It’s a complete one-off and was one we inherited from our predecessors.
Day 94 – Tuesday 4th April – a quiet day of working at home. The guinea pigs had a run in the garden and Wilfred tried to sharpen his teeth.
Day 95 – Wednesday 5th April – my husband still woke up with a headache, but decided he could manage to go into work. I finished off my work and then did some housework, which wasn’t a lot of fun. I couldn’t decide which tulip photo to include, so I went with a few of them.
Day 96 – Thursday 6th April – more tulips, yellow ones this time! My daughter hurt her hip at dance yesterday and I ended up taking her to the minor injuries unit before school. She needs lots of painkillers and rest, so it’s a good job all her dance classes have finished for the term.
Day 97 – Friday 7th April – I didn’t have any work, so I did some weeding. My daughter finished early for the school holidays – at 1.30pm. My eldest went camping for a night with his friends (and no adults!) and the rest of us went for an impromptu drive to Cribbs Causeway in Bristol in the evening.
Day 98 – Saturday 8th April – the inspirational Jamie McDonald, who ran across the whole of Canada, was at our Parkrun today, so it was superhero day (hence the kids’ Tshirt I’m wearing). I only went and got my fourth consecutive PB, smashing the 23 minute barrier for the first time and getting down to 22:37!
