It’s been a very strange week with both of the younger kids away on school residentials.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 141 – Sunday 21st May – with both of the younger kids going away on school residentials, we had packing to finish. My son is off to Germany and my daughter to west Wales.
Day 142 – Monday 22nd May – at 6.45am I waved my son off and at 7.45am I waved my daughter off (well I delivered her to school then and there was a further 45 minutes until the bus actually set off). The house feels very quiet and empty and the evenings ridiculously long without them.
Day 143 – Tuesday 23rd May – what a horrendous morning – waking up to news of the attack on the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. I cannot believe anyone would target something which appeals to children and teenagers. I felt sick about it all day. I think it felt even worse for me because my own children are so far from home. The only photo I took was this foxglove.
Day 144 – Wednesday 24th May – this was the sky today, all day. A beautiful hot, sunny day.
Day 145 – Thursday 25th May – another incredibly hot day. We got a postcard from my daughter, and my husband and son laughed because she hasn’t actually been to Cardiff!
Day 146 – Friday 26th May – what a day! My eldest finished school and will now only go in for exams. Hopefully he won’t be going back there for 6th form. The two kids came home from their residentials – my daughter at 5pm and my son at 9pm. They had both had a brilliant time. My family feels complete again! And this little dude had to go to the vet to be neutered. He went crazy and turned on Eric the other day and they had to be kept apart. I’m hoping this means they will be able put back in the same hutch in a few days when he’s healed.
Day 147 – Saturday 27th May – a very hot morning at Parkrun. My whole body was screaming at me to stop, but I kept going. I was very proud of the younger two kids for running today when they were tired from their travels.
