It’s been a busy couple of weeks, with far too many hospital appointments and not enough time for work.
week fortnight in pictures…
Day 109 – Sunday 19th April – my eldest decided to give rugby a miss today and the two of us went a big hill walk. He’s doing the Three Peaks soon (eek!) and needs to get in some training. I was proud that we managed to walk seven miles in two hours (and that was after I’d already run 4.5 miles at my fastest rate ever – 8 mins and 4 secs per mile).
Day 110 – Monday 20th April – by the end of the day we had a working sink, working hob and working dishwasher in our new kitchen. This is such a relief!
Day 111 – Tuesday 21st April – a bad start to the day when I trapped my daughter’s finger in the door as we were setting off for school. We didn’t make it to school and ended up at A&E, where we discovered it was broken. You can imagine how awful I felt.
Day 112 – Wednesday 22nd April – a momentous day, the kitchen was finally finished! The coving was replaced in the dining room and the tiles on the utility room floor were laid, leaving us with a fully-functioning kitchen and dining room.
Day 113 – Thursday 23rd April – this was supposed to be the day of my daughter’s MRI scan, but the paediatrician was happy that she’s completely cured and said we could cancel it (thank goodness!). Went to the fracture clinic with my daughter and found out her fingers will take about four weeks to heal. But here’s a lovely picture of some tulips in my garden! I love that there are five different colours.
Day 114 – Friday 24th April – my skin has been getting really bad again over the last few weeks, so I was back at the dermatologist today. Unbelievably, I was at the hospital four consecutive days this week (three of them for my daughter!).
Day 115 – Saturday 25th April – I spent the day at Blog Camp in Birmingham with Tots 100 and found it an informative and enjoyable day.
Day 116 – Sunday 26th April – another 4.5 mile run for me, followed by a seven mile walk with my son to get him fit. I was very pleased when my younger son was awarded coach’s player of the year at football.
Day 117 – Monday 27th April – this is the trophy my son won at football yesterday. I’m so proud of him!
Day 118 – Tuesday 28th April – a good day! First I heard that I’d made it through to the shortlist of the BiBs blogging awards in the family category (if you’d *cough* like to vote for me *cough* you can do it here, thank you!). Then I heard I’d won £134 on the lottery! I’ve been doing the lottery since it started in 1994 and that’s by far my biggest win.
Day 119 – Wednesday 29th April – we went to Cheltenham Races in the evening to celebrate my daughter’s best friend’s mum’s birthday. It was a lovely evening, but racing will never be my thing!
Day 120 – Thursday 30th April – I was finally able to settle down and do a decent amount of work! The view of my garden while I’m working is getting more beautiful by the day.
Day 121 – Friday 1st May – a week since I went to see the dermatologist, I hope it’s a good sign that my skin has got worse before it gets better, because it’s really starting to get me down. It’s really not easy having to face the world knowing you look like this.
Day 122 – Saturday 2nd May – my husband and eldest were off climbing mountains, while the rest of us had a relaxing time at home. Yes, it was actually snowing on Snowdon!
