It’s been week of two halves – when I felt very down about work and then very happy about it.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 31 – Sunday 31st January – I’m always reading that people are intending to run 400 or 500 miles in a year, but I have no idea how far I run. So this year I’m recording all of my runs. I ran 55 miles in January and was pleased to average a run every other day.
Day 32 – Monday 1st February – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – work days make for very boring photos! I didn’t do anything worthy of a photo all day. But this photo, taken out of my bedroom window as the sun set was surprisingly popular on Instagram.
Day 33 – Tuesday 2nd February – work is still rather slow, but today I had the strange pleasure of working with a children’s Christmas book.
Day 34 – Wednesday 3rd February – another day divided between doing what little work I have and looking for more work. I’ll be honest, sometimes freelance work scares me and I’m finding it quite tough at the moment. On the plus side, I have crocuses in the garden to join the daffodils.
Day 35 – Thursday 4th February – what a difference a day makes! After feeling tearful about my lack of work yesterday, I had a meeting with a new client and it looks like I’m going to be very busy from now on! This is me in clothes for meeting people ie smart jeans and no hoodie.
Day 36 – Friday 5th February – starting to work on my new contract. Yes, I’m a messy worker and I’m usually surrounded by bits of paper.
Day 37 – Saturday 6th February – this photo was taken at 8.30 this morning and in no way does the torrential rain justice. The roads were like rivers. My younger son was supposed to be playing rugby, but when we arrived at school, the other school had just called the game off a few minutes earlier. My son was VERY relieved. Taking him home meant that I missed Parkrun and, I must be honest, I was actually quite relieved about that, which is totally unlike me.
