Project 365 2018 Week 20

A week that started with the Tewkesbury half marathon and one where I didn’t have anywhere near enough work. Here’s hoping it picks back up soon!

I think this is my nicest set of photos for a long time. Isn’t it so much easier to take good photos at this time of year?

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 133 – Sunday 13th May – Tewkesbury half marathon day! It was hot, but I enjoyed running it and I only went a got a PB!

Day 134 – Monday 14th May – a lovely warm and sunny day. I wasn’t too worried that I didn’t have a lot of work as my legs were aching from the half marathon. I took this photo on one of my regular afternoon walks. Look at that sky!

Day 135 – Tuesday 15th May – a bit of a milestone for me. Regular readers will have heard me talk about the children’s books I work with. Today, after nearly four years of working with them, I worked on my last one. It was my own decision to give them up when the contract came round for renewal as I was struggling to find time to fit them in. I will miss them, but I don’t think I will regret my decision.

Day 136 – Wednesday 16th May – my daughter has been teaching herself gymnastics over the last few months and keeps saying she ‘needs’ a trampoline. But they ruin the grass and the novelty tends to wear off, so we’ve said no. She’s compromised by buying herself a small fitness trampoline, which she seems happy with at the moment.

Day 137 – Thursday 17th May – I managed my first run since the half marathon comfortably, so hopefully I’ve managed to avoid injury. Work has been extremely quiet this week. A sponsored blogpost earned me more than I need to earn today, but I haven’t earned enough this week in total. The garden is looking lovely at the moment. I reluctantly decided to use my extra spare time for some weeding.

Day 138 – Friday 18th May – another very quiet day of work, but at least it meant I could do the housework before the weekend! Doing housework at the weekend is something I particularly dislike, but it’s a necessary evil when I’m busy with work. I go for a walk most days before I pick my son up from school and took a photo of these buttercups.

Day 139 – Saturday 19th May – a busy day! My younger son set off on his final D of E Bronze expedition, my husband and I did parkrun, then he went off to watch the FA Cup Final. My daughter and I are going to watch the Royal Wedding at my mum’s house.

  5. Hope the work picks up soon. I’ve got lots of work on my books, but I can’t start it yet for various reasons, so I’ve been working in the garden too. Must share some pictures next week.

    • The work seems to be a bit now – a couple of clients I haven’t heard from for months have reappeared. That’s frustrating when you can’t start your work. Look forward to seeing pictures of your garden next week.

  6. Big well done on the marathon and PB, you look tired and happy at the same time. That is a fab achievement! Great shot of your daughter jumping. I’m in two minds about the trampoline as well, though I think my sons would enjoy it very much. Your garden is beautiful.

    • Thanks very much! I always thought you got a reasonable amount of paid work! I’ve been on a bit of a roll with it over the last week or two, but I know how quickly it can dry up again.
