Project 365 2015 Weeks 32 & 33

My boys came home from their big Scout camp and there was more packing and unpacking and a couple of quick trips to the seaside.

Here’s our fortnight in pictures…

Day 213 – Sunday 2nd August – a very hot day! We went to Weston-super-Mare and my husband and daughter went on the big wheel.

Day 214 – Monday 3rd August – one of the side effects of Roaccutane for me is blepharitis, a nasty eye infection. It has flared up again and took three phone calls to the doctor to get the ointment I know will cure it (until next time!).

Day 215 – Tuesday 4th August – my daughter and I went to Avoncroft Museum.

Day 216 – Wednesday 5th August – my boys are home! It’s so good to see them and I didn’t even mind about the washing.

Day 217 – Thursday 6th August – today was all about my boys! My younger son talked non-stop about his adventures on Scout camp and it was lovely to hear. This is just half of the Scout camp washing I had to do – most of it was unworn, but it needed washing anyway!

Day 218 – Friday 7th August – we’ve taken to going a very short run in the evenings to help my daughter improve her fitness and breathing for Parkun.

Day 219 – Saturday 8th August – we went to visit our friends in Weymouth! It was a lovely hot, sunny day.

Day 220 – Sunday 9th August – a much cooler day. We walked to Durdle Door before heading home for yet more unpacking!

Day 221 – Monday 10th August – did a bit of work in the garden (and more unpacking and washing – I seem to have done far too much of that this summer!).

Day 222 – Tuesday 11th August – we went Shaun hunting again. Today we found 15, taking our total up to 35 aka exactly half of the Shauns in Bristol. I don’t think we can find many more without driving. This is one of my favourites today – Shaun on the Cob.

Day 223 – Wednesday 12th August – the other two went out, so my younger son was at home amusing himself, mainly by sitting in a large box wearing his sunglasses!

Day 224 – Thursday 13th August – a bit of a boring day at home, so my daughter tested a selfie stick she’d got for review.

Day 225 – Friday 14th August – I’ve been struggling with injury this summer and another run was cut short. (It was also the wettest run I’ve had all year!)

Day 226 – Saturday 15th August – Parkrun day! Slowly, but surely, we’ve got hooked on Parkrun. I completed my fifth one today (the injury doesn’t affect me over shorter distances!), my daughter her fourth and my husband his second. This is my husband and daughter finishing their run and knocking nearly two minutes off their time.

  2. The big wheel photo is awesome, and I love the deckchairs on the seafront too. Bet the washing took a while!

    • Thanks very much! I really like the big wheel photo too. The washing only took a day as the weather was dry, but it seemed to take hours to put it all away! It’s remarkable how many clothes you can fit into a rucksack!

  3. Love that big wheel shot and Durdle Door is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit. What a pain about the eye infection, glad your sons had a great time on Scout Camp though

    • Thanks very much. They had the best time! Durdle Door is beautiful and was very busy, despite the weather.

  4. Yay to the boys being back home and boo to the eye infection but glad you got the meds you need. Is there any chance you could send those sheep up Norf please? I want to hunt them too 😉

    Post a Reply
    • I could ask the sheep nicely for you? My younger son still wants to hunt for more, but I’m not sure we’re going to have the time now.
      It’s so good having the boys home (even if one of them does pick on his sister constantly!).

  5. Clever selfie stick reflection selfie pic there!!??!! Love running in the rain and really hope your injury sorts itself soon – I understand your frustrations. I can’t believe how clean your boys backpacks look!

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much! The contents of the rucksacks and particularly the clothes they were actually wearing weren’t quite as clean! I’m going to get some physio so hopefully the running will be back on track soon.

  8. lots packed in there and can I say your skin is looking so much better, hope you’re noticing the difference too. I would have been dreading all of the washing lol.

    • Thanks very much! I’ve definitely noticed the difference with my skin 🙂

  9. I have eye drops I have to use every day which keeps my blepharitis at bay – may be worth asking for that next time you see your GP. Love the big wheel, I do love looking at places from above. We are off to Bristol on tuesday so hoping to run into some Shaun’s

    Post a Reply
    • Interesting about the eye drops, thanks! I’ll ask about them next time I go. I hope you managed to find some Shauns! 🙂

  10. awwww so happy for you that your boys are home safe and well, although i do not envy you all that washing 🙁
    I LOVE that first photo of the big wheel – what a great shot.
    Hmmm i am wondering where Durdle Door is – i will be googling that in a moment.
    I would like to do the shaun the sheep walk , just not sure if my two would walk that far – well jenson mainly, without moaning lol x

    • Thank you! It was such a relief to get my boys home in one piece! They loved it so much and would go back tomorrow if they could.
      Durdle Door is Dorset. I hadn’t heard of it until my friend told me about it yesterday, but it’s actually very well known.
      You don’t have to walk too far to see Shaun the Sheep, but obviously you see less of them if you don’t walk as far!

  11. LOVE THE PHOTO OF YOUR SON IN THE BOX AND WEARING HIS SHADES. you’ve really packed quite a bit in over the summer holidays

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much! I love that photo too, yet nobody else has mentioned it!

  12. Wonderful photos Sarah! Love the first one, the deck chairs and Durdle Door especially. You have had a busy couple of weeks 🙂 Hope the eye infection has cleared up fully and that your injury doesn’t impact too much x

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much! It’s certainly been a busier couple of weeks than usual. I’m just about on top of the eye infection, although I wouldn’t say it had completely healed.

      Post a Reply
  13. Looks like a very diverse week. Your skin is really improving isn’t it? I love Shaun on the Cob!

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much, the skin is definitely getting there slowly! Shaun on the Cob is ace 🙂

  14. Awe, we travelled to Weymouth on the 8th for a week! Think that was the best day weather wise! Sadly missed doing to Durdle Door! Great shot! Hope your eyes are better and so pleased the boys had a great time!

  15. Nice to have the whole family together again, glad they had a good time.
    Nice to knock time off your park runs, a nice achievement
    Love the title Shaun on the cob – made me smile – and not much has done that this week.
