The first week of the Easter holidays hasn’t been particularly exciting. Regular readers will know that I’m not very good at making school holidays fun. Ironically, being a work at home mum makes it harder than actually going out to work, as I pretty much have to do some work every day and at any time an email or phone call could come in that has to take priority over everything else.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 87 – Sunday 27th March – Easter Sunday didn’t go to plan as my mum was ill, which meant we couldn’t go round to her house, as we do every year. She gave us the food she was going to cook and the eggs for the Easter egg hunt she was going to do and we had to recreate Easter at our own house! It didn’t feel quite as special, but I think we salvaged the day!
Day 88 – Monday 28th March – another day that didn’t go to plan! I really wanted a family day out, but when my eldest was sick in the middle of the night, that had to be cancelled too. It meant more work in the garden and my younger son stepping up to take his brother’s place as his dad’s apprentice!
Day 89 – Tuesday 29th March – my eldest was much better, but we stayed at home for the day and I did some work. This is our back patio that my husband and sons had pulled up.
Day 90 – Wednesday 30th March – my eldest was out with Explorers for most of the day, which meant a nice peaceful day with these two. I can get on with my work without them arguing and we still found time for a trip to the park.
Day 91 – Thursday 31st March – my eldest was out with Explorers again today, so it was just me and the younger two at home. I found time for a quick run and my totals for March are in – 58 miles this month and 169 so far this year!
Day 92 – Friday 1st April – my eldest was out with a friend today (are you sensing a pattern here?). I took the younger two for a walk up the hill. I nearly deleted this photo of my daughter trying to avoid the camera, but I actually quite liked it – there seems to be a lot of life in it!
Day 93 – Saturday 2nd April – we took a delivery of two very large bags of stones yesterday and it was all hands on deck to get them shifted and get them down. Our garden is slowly being transformed!
