Project 365 2015 Week 26

Week 26! Halfway through the year! June is always a busy week and this has been one of the busiest weeks I can remember. I’ve really enjoyed it, but it’s been very tiring!

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 171 – Saturday 20th June – at Britmums Live! I thought about posting a pic of Carol Smillie and her pants , but in the end I opted for these two lovely ladies – Emma from Crazy with Twins and Candace from Us Three By the Sea, who kept me company all weekend.

Day 172 – Sunday 21st June – after a tiring Britmums weekend, my daughter and I spent 12 hours at a theatre dancing in a show. There were two performances, each lasting four hours (although we only danced for about 12 minutes in each performance!). This is me in one of my fabulous costumes. The downside of getting 9 year olds to take photos is you don’t get full-length photos!

Day 173 – Monday 22nd June – the French exchange boy is here! Actually, he arrived yesterday, but I only saw him very briefly after my long day at the dance show. I’m pleased to say he brought us some biscuits!

Day 174 – Tuesday 23rd June – the French boy is a pescetarian and we wanted to give him traditional English food, so the chip shop was the obvious choice! (OK, I had a veggie burger!)

Day 175 – Wednesday 24th June – my daughter injured her shoulder at school yesterday, so she’s back on regular Calpol.

Day 176 – Thursday 25th June – a sunny day and a day of work means – a flower photo from the garden!

Day 177 – Friday 26th June – I went to watch my younger son and my daughter representing the school in an athletics competition. They didn’t win or make it through to the finals, but it was still great to watch them try! I love this look of absolute determination on my son’s face.

Day 178 – Saturday 27th June – my biggest boy’s 14th birthday! Of course Pumba was out to celebrate.

    • Sorry we didn’t meet too – we always seemed to be going in the opposite direction or on the other side of the room.

    • Thanks very much. I love his determination! I think I’ve done at least 10 weeks’ worth of stuff this week – I’d rather it was spread out a bit more. I’m definitely ready for a quiet week! x

  6. An incredibly busy week. Hope your son had a lovely birthday and that next week is a bit quieter so you can recover.

    • Thanks very much! I so need a quieter week! It will definitely be a bit quieter, but I realise it’s basically busy all the way to the school holidays and beyond now.

  9. Happy belated birthday, love the balloons, hope he got some things he wanted.
    He deserved to win if determination got you first place.
    I am sure no visit to the UK would be complete without a lesson on traditional fish and chip shops, hope he is enjoying his stay.
