Project 365: Week 37

It’s been a pretty quiet week this week, but nice and warm and sunny, so lots of pictures of flowers!

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 250 – Sunday 7th September – Cheltenham half marathon day! My husband and daughter kept missing me (I was just too fast!), so no photos of me in action, just this happy one of me at the end.

Day 251 – Monday 8th September – it’s the old cliche ‘the weather always gets better when they go back to school’ and it’s true – bright blue sky and warm sun ever since the kids went back.

Day 252 – Tuesday 9th September – the flowers in our garden are definitely past their best now, but this hint of pink cheers the place up.

Day 253 – Wednesday 10th September – my son had football training in the evening – and his big brother and little sister went along to watch.

Day 254 – Thursday 11th September – it’s been sunny all week. I love how the shadows and the leaves seem to merge into one on our garden wall.

Day 255 – Friday 12th September – one of our guinea pigs, Eric, was getting slightly matted fur, so my son decided to bath him. It was a slightly traumatic process for the whole family, but Eric came out unscathed!

Day 256 – Saturday 13th September – today was all about THIS. In fact, the past few weeks have been all about this – the grammar school entrance exam! Now just four weeks until we get the results. Wake me up when it’s over.

    • I don’t think he quite loved the bath! It was pretty stressful really – we’ve learned some lessons for next time though! I think I’ve just about stopped basking in the glory now!

  12. You did so well in the half marathon, you deserve to look so pleased with yourself. A marathon next maybe? I love the football shot because it is a familiar site (no surprise there) except our chairs are blue. I’m glad the guinea pig survived, I’m not surprised it was traumatic
