Project 365 2017 Week 36

It’s the week we’ve all been waiting for – when my eldest and daughter both started at their new school.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 246 – Sunday 3rd September – I ran 10 miles for the first time this year and it felt pretty good. Only four weeks until the Cheltenham half marathon!

Day 247 – Monday 4th September – we didn’t do a lot. I seemed to spend a lot of time looking at my daughter playing with slime or making slime.

Day 248 – Tuesday 5th September – it felt like we were almost back to normal today. The kids weren’t back at school, but my son had athletics in the evening (look at that stormy sky!) and my eldest had Explorers.

Day 249 – Wednesday 6th September – the big day! Back to school for my younger son and the first day at their new school for my eldest and my daughter. They all had a good day and came home with lots to say.

Day 250 – Thursday 7th September – back to reading children’s books for (part of) a living for me. If you’ve got kids aged around 8 to 10, this is a very funny book.

Day 251 – Friday 8th September – I had to get a new string for my son’s guitar. It proved to be a useful trip as I was able to make enquiries about cheaper music lessons. Now my daughter has moved schools, the cost of the music lessons has got quite ridiculous!

Day 252 – Saturday 9th September – we walked through Cheltenham town centre, which was gearing up for the arrival of the Tour of Britain later today. It should be exciting!

  1. Well done on the 10 miles – I can’t wait to get to double figures again! Good luck with the half. Your children look very smart – can’t believe they’re all back to school again.

    • Thanks very much! I know I’ve envied you being in double figures in the past when I’ve been running four miles at a time. Hopefully you’ll be back to it soon!
      It’s incredible how smart my kids look – long may it continue.

  2. Good luck with the half marathon. I couldn’t manage to walk 10 miles never mind run them. lol
    Why are kids obsessed with slime….So far I have avoided having any in the house.
    They all look so smart in their uniforms. Good luck to them in the new school year x

    • Thanks very much! The new school year seems to be going very well so far! To be honest, walking 10 miles is nearly as hard as running it! x

  4. Oh gosh, I feel your pain about the music lessons, it must be crippling with three. My eldest is just about to start piano lessons and we have a £150 bill to pay. Eek!

    • Luckily my eldest has given up. The bill for the violin lessons was £210 for the term, which is not much more than I pay for my daughter to do four lessons a week at her ballet. We just couldn’t pay that. The guitar lessons are £160 too. Neither of the kids are interested enough in music to warrant that sort of money! x

  6. Sounds like the running is going well. It’s not that long now really is it? Good luck with it all. I would love to learn the guitar. My uncle and cousin play a lot!

    • Thanks very much, I seem to have got the training right this year. Only three weeks to go! I think it’s fairly easy to teach yourself to play guitar. My son doesn’t practise enough, so his progress has been really slow.

  7. Well done on the 10 miles, that’s awesome. Good luck with the half. Your children look very smart and love the slime. x

    • Thanks very much! I’m really looking forward to the half now. My kids do look very smart, and I’m pleased to say they still look smart a week later! x

  8. glad the kids have settled well into their new schools, it must make life a lot easier for you now with the school runs. How is R managing the transition from Juniors to Seniors? I see she has already made new friends. I assume you’re running the Cheltenham half marathon?

    • Yep, I’m running the Cheltenham half marathon! I think it will definitely be easier with two schools in the end, but we’re still adjusting to the new school, so it feels like quite hard work now. My daughter loves it though and is coping very well with the change.

  9. Hope the kids are all enjoying being back at school. I’ve managed to avoid making slime so far, but I suspect it’s only a matter of time 🙂 Well done on the run, I’ve done nothing all summer, so starting back slowly here!

    • Good luck with getting back to running! The kids are really enjoying being back to school, thanks.
