We’re more than halfway through the year already! 2018 really seems to be flying by.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 175 – Sunday 24th June – what a game! I’m not a huge football fan, but football is something you can’t escape in our house. I wouldn’t miss an England World Cup game and I’m so glad I didn’t.
Day 176 – Monday 25th June – the heatwave is here! It’s great to see so many bees on the lavender on our front garden.
Day 177 – Tuesday 26th June – in the evening I went to watch my daughter’s two dance classes (something parents do only once a year), which was lovely. Then it was straight to my younger son’s school for his sports celebration evening. Each team awards a players’ player award. We were amazed and very proud that my son got two of them!
Day 178 – Wednesday 27th June – happy 17th birthday to my biggest boy! This brilliant card was from my mum. It’s not easy to find cards with 17 on, so I can’t believe she found a 17 card with guinea pigs on it. It was an exciting day for my son as it was school sports day and he is the house captain. If you’re missing the traditional birthday Pumba photo, you can check out my Silent Sunday post or my Instagram.
Day 179 – Thursday 28th June – my daughter got awarded the trophy for ‘outstanding presentation’ when she left primary school. It made us very proud and was well deserved. It was time to say goodbye to the trophy and return it to school for the next year 6 to win it.
Day 180 – Friday 29th June – my boys went off on Explorers camp and it was yet another very hot day. We’ve got three of these lovely pink plants in our garden.
Day 181 – Saturday 30th June – my brother-in-law and his family are over in the UK from the USA for the first time in three years, so we paid a flying visit to Cheshire to see them.
Day 182 – Sunday 1st July – probably the hottest day we’ve had so far this summer, although not the sunniest. The grass is basically dead now and we can’t water it due to the water shortages.
Day 183 – Monday 2nd July – our hydrangea is finally out and looking lovely, although how long it will last in this weather I’m not sure.
Day 184 – Tuesday 3rd July – it was all about the football. I had a feeling England would win, but didn’t they make it hard? We all thought it was all over when it went to penalties. We have a Pizza Hut delivery about two or three times a year and always when there is an important football match on.
Day 185 – Wednesday 4th July – my husband and I have a tradition of going to London to see a show to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It’s 18 years this year and we went to see Kinky Boots, which was fabulous. We also travelled first class.
Day 186 – Thursday 5th July – I’m not sure, but it may have been even hotter today. I felt like I achieved very little in the day. The flowers in the garden are starting to die in the heat.
Day 187 – Friday 6th July – another very hot day. I don’t think I’ve worn jeans for about three weeks now – I usually wear them 365 days a year. I haven’t had much work this week, but I’ve been trying not to let it worry me.
Day 188 – Saturday 7th July – the hottest parkrun so far this year and a busy day ahead with my daughter’s school fair, my son’s football presentation and of course the World Cup quarter final – England v Sweden!
