We’ve made it to the end of January! This is always a good thing.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 24 – Sunday 24th January – my husband’s car is in the garage, which means we are a family of five relying on a four-seater Mini to get places. This meant I couldn’t watch my son play football today. I got out for a walk in the morning and captured this reflection in a puddle.
Day 25 – Monday 25th January – my younger son spent most of the day yesterday (apart from when he was playing football) researching and working on his art homework for today. This is the finished product.
Day 26 – Tuesday 26th January – after my daughter got hit on the wrist by a football at school yesterday, I realised it wasn’t magically going to get better on its own. After a very long wait in A&E, they confirmed it was a sprain and she got this splint.
Day 27 – Wednesday 27th January – I went out for a meal with some of the other Gloucestershire bloggers. It was an enjoyable evening, but it was definitely a schoolgirl error to order pasta. This was tiny!
Day 28 – Thursday 28th January – the sunlight when I drive to pick my son up from school these days is dazzling. It’s beautiful, but very bad for driving! I took this while I was waiting for him to come out of school.
Day 29 – Friday 29th January – when it was so frosty last week, I was worried my daffodils would be destroyed, but I’m pleased to say they’re going strong this week.
Day 30 – Saturday 30th January – Parkrun selfie! I was pretty pleased with my run today. I was 13th female across the line out of a total of 435 runners, in a time of 24 minutes and 40 seconds. I also came first in my age category, which I always seem to do when I run without the kids!
