It’s the final full week of the summer holidays. I feel like the holidays have been a mixed bag. We’ve done some lovely things, including going to Padstow, but also an awful lot of staying at home doing nothing. That’s pretty much what we’ve done this week too.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 239 – Sunday 27th August – I spent ages yesterday cleaning and filling the paddling pool. As I always have a cold bath to help my recovery after a long run, I thought I’d use the paddling pool rather than the bath. It was very pleasant!
Day 240 – Monday 28th August – my niece and nephew came round to play in the paddling pool and throw water bombs. It was great fun, but my daughter moaned that she hadn’t been out all day. So we went for a quick evening walk in Gloucester.
Day 241 – Tuesday 29th August – what a difference a day makes! After the hot, sunny weekend, the cold, grey, damp weather was back. At least the sunrise was pretty.
Day 242 – Wednesday 30th August – a bit of a miserable day with the colder weather and a last minute change of plans. My daughter has been working on tidying her bedroom (a BIG job) and has made this display of special things – medals from her ballet exams, medals for taking part in her ballet school’s choreography show, her trophy for honesty in sport, her medal for winning a quiz against other schools, her prefect badge and a gift from her best friend.
Day 243 – Thursday 31st August – I ran rather a long way in August! I ran 95 miles this month, in training for my half marathon on 1st October, taking me up to 522 miles for the year. I started recording my mileage in January 2016 and that is by far the furthest I’ve run in a month.
Day 244 – Friday 1st September – my daughter made a small list (definitely NOT a bucket list) of things she would like do over the holidays, but we hadn’t managed to do many of them. So today we ticked another one off when I took her climbing. She absolutely loved it.
Day 245 – Saturday 2nd September – a big day for my daughter – her 50th Parkrun! It was lovely to hear her name read out at the start of the run.
