It’s been a fairly boring week with rather more mum taxi than I would have liked – ever since my younger son started secondary school I’ve been spending more and more time driving. I’m glad it’s half-term!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 38 – Sunday 7th February – the morning after the day before! After raining all day and all night, the park had a lake and the roads were all flooded. And my biggest boy had been out hiking and camping in it.
Day 39 – Monday 8th February – extra mum taxi duties for me today as my daughter was performing at a local theatre with the school dance club. The theatre is a very ornate one, but I couldn’t see much of it from my seat!
Day 40 – Tuesday 9th February – Pancake day and we all braved flipping pancakes (without dropping them!). The boys made the batter. My younger son knew the quantities and ratios, but my eldest ignored him, so the pancakes were rather thick!
Day 41 – Wednesday 10th February – you can tell I’m busier with work now – my work has spread to the spare bed!
Day 42 – Thursday 11th February – a frosty start turned into a beautiful, sunny day.
Day 43 – Friday 12th February – a lot of thought went into planning my daughter’s birthday party, then disaster! A girl in her class had a party at the same time (at my daughter’s dream trampoline place), inviting my daughter and three of her guests. Stress ensued until I managed to change the date and time of my daughter’s party.
Day 44 – Saturday 13th February – a very satisfactory morning at Parkrun! I finished in 95th place out of 405 runners. I don’t think I’ve ever finished inside the top 100 before. As well as winning my age category, which I seem to do every week, I was the 7th woman across the line. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the top 10 women before either!
