At last, the weather has warmed up and my photos feel a bit more cheerful!
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 115 – Sunday 24th April – the end of an era! The last day of the football season and the last day of existence for the team my son has played for, and my husband has coached, for over five years. My daughter took rather a lot of photos of him doing throw-ins, which he’s very good at.
Day 116 – Monday 25th April – a quiet working day. Is it just me who does shopping over the weekend, but still needs to go every single Monday without fail?
Day 117 – Tuesday 26th April – a very quiet day of work. This lovely tulip is in my garden.
Day 118 – Wednesday 27th April – my daughter was off school ill today, although she was probably better than yesterday, when she went to school ill. It’s been very cold this week and here’s the proof – a frosty start to the day.
Day 119 – Thursday 28th April – my daughter was still off ill today, but started doing random ballet in the kitchen, a sure sign she was on the mend. She’s been keeping herself busy doing some painting by numbers.
Day 120 – Friday 29th April – the running totals for April are in and they’re slightly down on previous months. This month I’ve run 54 miles, taking me to a total of 223 miles for the year.
Day 121 – Saturday 30th April – we headed for Cheshire to stay with the in-laws and had a walk in the forest.
Day 122 – Sunday 1st May – I went to BlogOn in Manchester for the first time. I loved catching up with some of my favourite bloggers. This is a picture of me with Tas from Not My Year Off and Eric from 92three30 – my two early morning Twitter friends.
Day 123 – Monday 2nd May – so this happened. Leicester City, the team I’ve supported all my life, went and won the Premier League. They were 5000-1 to win it at the start of the season.
Day 124 – Tuesday 3rd May – the garden project, which was started on a whim back in February, is almost finished. My daughter planted some flowers.
Day 125 – Wednesday 4th May – a hot, sunny day! I wore my summer running stuff for the first time this year.
Day 126 – Thursday 5th May – a lovely hot, sunny day. My son was off school ill and the only photos I took were of flowers. This is one of the new ones my daughter planted.
Day 127 – Friday 6th May – another hot and sunny day. It’s been a slow work week, but I’ve been able to work in the garden, watching all the flowers come out.
Day 128 – Saturday 7th May – was very pleased to have my younger son join my daughter and I for Parkrun today. It’s the first time he’s run in about six months. He kept promising he would run when it was hot and he was true to his word! Unfortunately my daughter hates running when it’s hot and moaned all the way round.
