Project 366 Week 20

Week 20! It actually is very nearly summer. How did that happen?

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 136 – Sunday 15th May – I was sent the outdoor game Smite for review (review coming up on the blog next week). I expected to enjoy it, but I can safely say we haven’t had this much fun in months!

Day 137 – Monday 16th May – an electrician came to put in some more smoke alarms and more modern lighting upstairs. I wasn’t sure why all our lighting in the kitchen had to come out too!

Day 138 – Tuesday 17th May – my mum bought me these flowers as I’ve been miserable thanks to my skin and nasty medication.

Day 139 – Wednesday 18th May – since my regular client let me go, all of my work seems to have dried up, so I’m having to make myself useful at home – starting with painting the fence. When my husband said there were ‘four areas’ of the garden that needed painting, I naively thought he meant four fence panels. He didn’t. And it’s flipping hard work!

Day 140 – Thursday 19th May – after my skin went downhill so quickly last week, I’ve finished my antibiotics, but the only way to keep me on the straight and narrow is to go back on Roaccutane. Less than three weeks after I came off it.

Day 141 – Friday 20th May – I was back to painting fences again today. I have now painted three of the four different areas that needed painting and used an entire 5 litre pot of Cuprinol this week. I’m quite pleased with myself!

Day 142 – Saturday 21st May – it is exactly a year since my daughter and I ran our first Parkrun. Today, for only the second time ever, all five of us ran it, but I just ran it with my daughter – like I did a year ago. I was very proud of her. Last week she dropped out and I wondered if she would ever run again, but I’m pleased to say she decided to run again today!

  1. Oh you’re putting me to shame with your fence painting! I need to creosote the posts under our decking and just can’t seem to find the time.

    • Fence painting isn’t much fun, but I did have a real feeling of achievement when I’d done it. Was so pleased my daughter went back to Parkrun!

  5. Aww well done to your girl for running and happy 1 year! Any chance you’d like to come paint our fence too? I think it’s been calling out for about 3 years now!

    • Ha ha, I’m not sure I can face any more fences! Although it wasn’t too bad once I got going. Was so glad my daughter ran again. Hoping she’s over her blip now!

  8. Painting fences is exhausting isn’t it. Sorry about work being slow for you and that you’ve been feeling a bit rubbish. The game sounds fun though #366
