Project 365: Week 41

This week has been all about work, rain and the garden! I found some surprisingly beautiful flowers in the garden in the brief breaks between the showers – and my work just keeps on getting better.

Day 278 – Sunday 5th October – my husband and kids want to see Man Utd, leaving me at home to do the garden and worry about my blog.

Day 279 – Monday 6th October – an incredibly windy and rainy day. I genuinely don’t think we have ever walked to school in such bad weather. The road had turned into a river (this photo really doesn’t do it justice at all.)

Day 280 – Tuesday 7th October – I first posted of these flowers on my blog back in May – I can’t believe they’re still going strong!

Day 281 – Wednesday 8th October – a little glimpse into the life of someone who works at home – lunch in the middle of the garden (more on that in the blog in the next few days!).

Day 282 – Thursday 9th October – my daughter did a cross country race for the school. As you can see, it was a lovely day! 🙁

Day 283 – Friday 10th October – I had some amazing news which doesn’t lend itself to a photo. Work is still going well and this box of kids’ books is going to help me earn a good proportion of my ‘salary’ for the next three months.

Day 284 – Saturday 11th October – I spent much of the day at various events at the Cheltenham Literature Festival with my kids. This is my daughter learning to draw Tom Gates with Liz Pichon.

    • The weather has been pretty awful! I think I’m turning slightly bonkers and that’s why I’m eating in the middle of the garden!

  6. We had the whole sun and rain thing going on. Got soaked several times on the school run. Our road is a hill and it often looks like a river in heavy rain and there seem to be very few storm drains to take the water away. Love the eating lunch in the garden picture – you have to get the benefit of working from home.

    • Thanks very much. I must say I don’t think I’ve managed lunch outside since I took that picture! We’ve had two weeks of near-continual rain now.
