It’s been a busy fortnight, including a holiday to Copenhagen!
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 91 – Sunday 1st April – Easter Day! My brother-in-law has convinced me that I can get fit enough for a half marathon in six weeks, so I did an eight mile run and felt on top of the world. We went round to my mum’s for lunch and a little Easter egg hunt. This is my daughter helping her little cousins to find the eggs.
Day 92 – Monday 2nd April – while the bathroom was being done, our already fairly untidy bedroom got a lot messier. So my husband tidied it up, while I did other boring bank holiday reorganising jobs. I had about 30 or 40 books in piles next to my bed, now I just have this small pile of books I still have to read.
Day 93 – Tuesday 3rd April – now the kids are older, they can go out with their friends in the holidays, which makes me feel less guilty about working. Today my daughter went out and my eldest had a friend round. Yesterday, my younger son went out. I’ve been listening to this new album from my favourite band, Levellers, a lot. Yes, it’s signed because I’m a proper fan!
Day 94 – Wednesday 4th April – worked very hard today and felt guilty for not spending any time with my daughter. We went for a walk and got drenched.
Day 95 – Thursday 5th April – my daughter went to her friend’s house today, the weather was much nicer and packing is well underway for going to Copenhagen tomorrow morning.
Day 96 – Friday 6th April – we set off for Heathrow at 7am, ready to fly to Copenhagen! Of course we were at the airport way too early. We arrived at our amazing hotel at 5pm, then set off to find dinner and have a wander. We wandered until nearly 9pm! Copenhagen looks likes a beautiful city and we’re looking forward to seeing more of it tomorrow.
Day 97 – Saturday 7th April – we started the day as we start every Saturday, with parkrun! Parkrun in Copenhagen was a very different, but very enjoyable experience. We then spent much of the day at Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen’s number one tourist attraction. I don’t like theme parks or funfairs, but this place is beautiful and well worth a visit. Yes, my kids are at the top of that!
Day 98 – Sunday 8th April – we hired bikes and spent the day cycling around Copenhagen. It was a beautiful and warm, sunny day. We even caught the sun a little bit!
Day 99 – Monday 9th April – we caught the train to Malmo in Sweden because it’s only half an hour away. My eldest was very keen to see the Turning Torso, which is the tallest building in Scandinavia. It is 190 metres and 54 storeys high and was well worth seeing. You might just spot a ballet dancer at the bottom of the picture.
Day 100 – Tuesday 10th April – time to say a sad goodbye to Copenhagen! We loved our trip and would have liked to stay a bit longer.
Day 101 – Wednesday 11th April – back to reality and back to work. I was amazed at how much the garden had changed in the five days we’d been away – none of these flowers were out before we’d left and the leaves are really starting to come out on the hydrangeas.
Day 102 – Thursday 12th April – after an eight mile run and a busy day of work, my husband, the boys and I went to see the Wonder Stuff and Ned’s Atomic Dustbin in Bristol. It was a brilliant. Our friend is actually in Ned’s Atomic Dustbin! I can’t imagine how cool my 17 year old self would have thought that was.
Day 103 – Friday 13th April – a busy day of work and feeling very tired as I still haven’t recovered from the holiday, plus I had an early morning and a late night yesterday. Had to do cleaning in the evening as we’ve got friends visiting tomorrow. My daughter sorted out some of her slimes.
Day 104 – Saturday 14th April – only our second parkrun with decent weather of the year. The heat took everybody by surprise after so many cold, wet weeks. I actually beat my husband for the first time in over since months. Ever since I beat him at Cheltenham half marathon, he’s beaten me at every single parkrun! (I used to beat him about four times out of five before that.)
