Project 365: Week 17

This was the week when my world essentially shrank down to a computer on the dining room table and staring out atย the weeds inย my garden. I faced up to the reality of my first week proper as a ‘freelancer’ aka a person without a proper job desperately trying to work out how to earn money (whilst also doing housework).

Day 110 – Sunday 20th April aka Easter Day – we had a lovely day at my mum’s with my family. I love this picture of my niece fiddling with my mum’s Easter decorations.

Day 111 – Monday 21st April – the last day of the Easter holidays! We went to visit the is-it-or-isn’t it Banksy in Cheltenham. The photos really don’t do it justice, it is amazing! There are loads of people visiting it all the time.

Day 112 – Tuesday 22nd April – the kids went back to school and I faced up to the scary reality of working at home. With no actual work. Are you jealous of my working environment?

Day 113 – Wednesday 23rd March – I spend my day focusing on the garden now as I work. These are my wallflowers, which are just on their last legs now.

Day 114 – Thursday 24th April – we’ve finally got a washing line and the weather was nice enough to hang the washing out!

Day 115 – Friday 25th April – with the weather warmer and a bit of rain this week, the garden has gone crazy. This clematis seems to have appeared out of nowhere. I love our red garden walls, which are a historic feature of the village.

Day 116 – Saturday 26th April – I went to Tots100 Blog Camp in Birmingham. I took some photos, but my phone and my computer aren’t talking to each other today, so I’ve failed to get anything on here. Sorry!

Can I just apologise AGAIN for the lack of uniformity in the size of my photos. As you can see, I am getting closer to getting it sorted. Must try harder…

  1. Ooh I love that red brick wall in your garden, really beautiful and a great backdrop. You’d better get gardening! Funnily enough we got our washing line up for the first time in 2 years this week. I was ridiculously pleased!

    • It’s a bit sad to be excited about a washing line, isn’t it? The red wall is fabulous. I need to take more photos against it.

  6. I really need a proper washing line, we’ve been here 5 years and not got one! Blog camp looked brilliant. I’m going to jump and book it next time!

    • You need to invest in a washing line, Tas! I love hanging the washing out instead of cluttering the house with it.

  9. Scary to sit down and suddenly have to create work for yourself. Do you have any more leads on possible clients or marketing avenues? I would hire you to be my agent/do my PR, but I haven’t got the cash myself and it looks like you might be expensive with your fancy website. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Post a Reply
    • I’m certainly not expensive, Judith! I don’t have any leads yet. I just keep telling myself I’ve got time and it will come!

  10. I’m a little bit envious of your walled garden – something I would love one day, not sure why but I think it beats a fence! Good luck with the work, I’ll swap if you like ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much, I don’t think I’d make a very good teacher! I never would have considered a walled garden being better than a fence, but I must say I do love it!

  11. Nothing beats washing that has been dried on the line does it?
    Love the clematis, I thought I had killed my wisteria but it is starting to shoot now
