Project 365 2017 Week 40

It’s been a busy week of work with some nicely aching legs thrown in, thanks to the Cheltenham half marathon.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 254 – Sunday 1st October – the Cheltenham half marathon! I was very pleased with my time of 1 hour 52 minutes and 8 seconds, just 13 seconds short of my PB.

Day 255 – Monday 2nd October – today was all about working hard, limping badly and basking in the glory of yesterday. That set of results looks pretty respectable to me!

Day 256 – Tuesday 3rd October – I was gearing up to make it three whole weeks without my car (not easy with three kids who constantly need driving around), but this came home late last night – complete with clutch! I can’t describe how happy I was to see it.

Day 257 – Wednesday 4th October – a busy day of work and the only photo I managed to take was of these autumn flowers in the garden. They look amazing at the moment!

Day 258 – Thursday 5th October – I took my daughter to the doctor with her bad foot, which was a very long round trip as I had to pick her up from school and take her back there. She has ligament or nerve damage, which isn’t ideal as she has a jazz exam in two weeks and panto rehearsals in less than six weeks. I was supposed to get back to work afterwards, but I’d just read these words, so had to keep reading!

Day 259 – Friday 6th October – as I’ve been busy with work this week my blog has been a bit neglected, so I took a bit of time to sort out some half-written posts and get the photos ready. I also went for three walks – one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. I took this photo on my evening walk.

Day 260 – Saturday 7th October – regular readers will know that my eldest has been on Roaccutane, the strongest acne drug there is, for nearly a year. Last year he had the most terrible acne imaginable. I was so proud of how he coped with it all. He takes his last tablet today. I’m really hoping he stays clear now.

  1. Oh I really hope your boys skin stays clear. It must be a horrible thing to have as a teenager. I didn’t have it too bad but still remember how embarrassed I was about spots. The walk photo and flowers look wonderful and so colourful! #365

    • Thanks very much! I had it badly too right into my 40s (I’m on Roaccutane myself!) so I could really relate and knew what treatment he needed. It was a horrible thing to go through though.

  3. Oh it’s great that your son has come so far that he’s able to stop the medication, I hope it holds off for him. I love those purple flowers too and have a photo of some on my camera roll, I must get around to sharing it somewhere! I hope your daughter’s foot is on the mend.

    • Thanks very much, my daughter’s foot seems to be improving a bit. You would never know now that my son had had such terrible acne, apart from just a little bit of scarring. I’ll be watching him very carefully for any changes. x

  4. All things crossed for his skin. Keep us updated. My son had to come off the string a/b as he had chest pains. He now has to wait until he’s 12 (3 months). Bless them. X

  7. I could not live without my car, first bus out of the village on a Sunday is an hour after I start work, and work is two buses away. Glad you have it back.
    Well done on your half marathon. Hope the boys skin stays clear, it is bad enough in an adult but must be soul destroying in a teen.

    • Thanks very much! I have my fingers firmly crossed for my son’s skin. It was a nightmare without my car, but nowhere near as bad as it would be for you!
