It’s been a funny old week – a whole week without two of my kids while they were on Scout camp. I’m sure all parents can appreciate how strange that must feel.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 211 – Sunday 30th July – my husband rode in the Ride London 100 mile bike ride, and my eldest and I caught the train to London to see him finish.
Day 212 – Monday 31st July – we stayed over in a quirky hotel, the Good Hotel, with great views. I had to do a bit of work in the morning, then we headed back home.
Day 213 – Tuesday 1st August – I did a fair bit of work to keep me busy, but the house definitely feels quiet and lonely without the two kids here. This is my husband’s Ride London medal.
Day 214 – Wednesday 2nd August – with both my husband and son away, I woke up to an empty house! Luckily I had work to keep me busy. We finally moved the guinea pigs into their new hutch. Their old one is going rotten, but I don’t like the new one because it seems a bit small.
Day 215 – Thursday 3rd August – I’m really looking forward to my kids getting home now. I’m spending all my time scouring the Scout Facebook group for photos of them. I didn’t see a single photo of my daughter today, which started me worrying. She did so well to actually go on the camp, but she might struggle with being away for so long. There are some advantages to the kids being away – I finished my books for work in record time this month.
Day 216 – Friday 4th August – I saw so many photos of my daughter on the camp today and she looked so happy. I did a lot of jobs I didn’t want to do – hoovering, bathroom cleaning and weeding. The hydrangeas are looking pretty good in the garden.
Day 217 – Saturday 5th August – my kids are home later today! I can’t wait to see them. I did my first Parkrun in three weeks. There’s a new route now, which I’m not too sure about. Also, I’m not sure why I decided to hold up my finish token for this photo!
