It’s been a fairly pleasant week, nothing exciting, but nice enough! We’re all looking forward to the Easter holidays now.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 80 – Sunday 20th March – the kids and I all ran for Sport Relief and it was a brilliant experience. I was especially proud of my 14 year old son for running 6 miles.
Day 81 – Monday 21st March – it was a rare quiet day, without a lot of work to do. Those days used to worry me, but as I generally have a lot more work to do these days, I just make the most of them now! It was a good opportunity to sort out and schedule all the blogposts I’d bashed out in a hurry. And to look at the tulips coming out in the garden.
Day 82 – Tuesday 22nd March – my eldest is doing work experience this week. At his school, it is common for kids to do work experience with their parents and he is no exception. He is getting a true feel for my husband’s workaholic ways and had a long day of travelling today. My daughter had a busy day too – going straight from school to her tutor, then straight from her tutor to her new ballet class and straight back to school to play in the school concert.
Day 83 – Wednesday 23rd March – my mum always has daffodils at Easter and so do I. It can be difficult to time them right, I’m hoping these will be at their best on Easter Sunday!
Day 84 – Thursday 24th March – my daughter finished school early for Easter and started drawing Jacqueline Wilson characters. It made a nice change from her watching TV.
Day 85 – Friday 25th March – a lovely, sunny, spring-like day. Unfortunately I was shut in my dark room as I’ve suddenly got a lot of work on!
Day 86 – Saturday 26th March – four months after it moved to the winter course, Parkrun was back on its summer route today. That means we do three longer laps, rather than four shorter ones. I ran with my daughter and she moaned all the way round. Hopefully now rugby is over we will be back to running every week and she will start to feel happier and to improve her time.
