Project 366 Week 24

This week has been all about two things – the rain and having lots of work! Here’s our week in pictures… Day 164 – Sunday 12th June – my husband’s 43rd birthday! Pumba was out with his rather meagre selection of presents. It was a strange day as my husband’s car is in the garage, so five of us were trying to get around in a four-seater Mini. This meant I spent a lot of the day cycling! Day 165...

The girl who cried wolf

Regular readers will know that, for the last couple of years, my daughter has been to A&E three or four times a year. She’s an active girl – always dancing, running, jumping and climbing. Sometimes she lands awkwardly on her ankle, wrist or toe. It’s ALWAYS her ankle, wrist or toe. She’s unlucky too – she’s the one who classmates will stumble into and knock over, who falls when her...
