It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and I seem to have been constantly planning, organising, packing and unpacking.
I also crossed a line by starting to work on Sundays. I’m now working seven days a week. Hopefully it won’t last forever. I’m just grateful to have work and know I need to make the most of it while I’ve got it, because it might dry up!
week fortnight in pictures…
Day 158 – Sunday 7th June – we went to see the Back to the Future Delorean at the Cheltenham Science Festival. My eldest, who is a real film buff, was more than happy to pay £5 to sit in it and have his photo taken in it.
Day 159 – Monday 8th June – OK, I’m cheating a bit here. We bathed the guinea pigs on Saturday, but I didn’t get the photos off my camera until today. We learned from my daughter’s favourite programme, Pet School, that they should be bathed three or four times a year. It was quite good fun!
Day 160 – Tuesday 9th June – it’s Daddy’s birthday this week, so my daughter and I got on with wrapping his presents.
Day 161 – Wednesday 10th June – I got home from dropping my daughter at dance to find my son up this tree. I have no idea how he got up there as there are no low branches!
Day 162 – Thursday 11th June – Pumba was out – I got everything ready for my husband’s birthday tomorrow.
Day 163 – Friday 12th June – happy birthday to my husband! 42 today! At the last minute he decided we should have a flying visit to Cornwall, so we stayed in this Travelodge!
Day 164 – Saturday 13th June – we spent the day in Padstow, my very favourite place, although the weather was pretty poor.
Day 165 – Sunday 14th June – a flying visit to look at this lighthouse near Padstow and we set off for home.
Day 166 – Monday 15th June – another day, another boy goes away and leaves me! Same suitcase, different son – this time my younger son going off to Wales until Friday on his year 6 residential.
Day 167 – Tuesday 16th June – I walked into my younger son’s room and it was strange to see it empty (and tidy!).
Day 168 – Wednesday 17th June – I returned to Gloucester, where I used to work, for a rare work meeting. I’d forgotten how weird it is there, but the cathedral is beautiful.
Day 169 – Thursday 18th June – I packed for Britmums Live! (And did about 300 other things as I was busy and stressing!)
Day 170 – Friday 19th July – ready for the off! All packed up for Britmums Live and worrying how my family will cope without me!
Project 365 is a bloghop. The bloghop will open at 9pm on Saturday. Hop over to see what others have been up to this week!
