I’m pleased to say that half-term was a better school holiday than we’ve had for a long time.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 150 – Sunday 29th May – I’ve needed some new trainers for about three months now. Having finally persuaded myself that it’s OK to spend money on myself, I then struggled to find anything in a colour I liked in my size. And then I found these!
Day 151 – Monday 30th May – bank holiday Monday was all about getting my eldest and husband prepared for their big trip to Ben Nevis.
Day 152 – Tuesday 31st May – my husband and eldest set off to get their flight to Scotland at 4am! I went to the cinema with the kids and completed another month of running. My totals are down this month due to a slight ankle injury and the effects of my nasty antibiotics, but hopefully I’ll be back to normal from now on.
Day 153 – Wednesday 1st June – we went to London for an event with Robinsons about drinking more water. We couldn’t resist going to have a look at Big Ben, even though it was a bit of a trek.
Day 154 – Thursday 2nd June – we went to Bristol for another event, this one with Cabots Circus. Whenever we go to Bristol, the kids can’t resist paddling in the water.
Day 156 – Saturday 4th June – we went for our annual day at Wychwood Festival and absolutely loved it! This is my daughter, niece, nephew, sister and brother-in-law watching Justin Fletcher on the main stage.
Day 157 – Sunday 5th June – everyone was tired after Wychwood and after a week of fun, it was time to get some boring stuff done at home! Another excuse for a garden photo!
Day 158 – Monday 6th June – back to school for the boys, but my daughter still had an inset day. I had a lot of work on, so I had to ignore for most of the day! It was a very hot day and this is the first thing I saw when I looked out of the window in the morning.
Day 159 – Tuesday 7th June – a couple of months ago, I decided I would run six miles once a week to help me ease into longer runs ready to start half marathon training, hopefully without injury. I did two runs, then injured my ankle. On one of the hottest days of the year, I attempted to run six miles again. The heat was tough, but neither my ankle or my knee hurt, so I was very pleased with myself!
Day 160 – Wednesday 8th June – I’m a self-confessed chocaholic and unashamed by the fact that I eat chocolate every day. I was so pleased to read Stressy Mummy’s post on why it’s good to eat it that I took this photo.
Day 161 – Thursday 9th June – my daughter took part in a matchbox challenge at school. Do you think anyone will beat 120 items? I really hope not!
Day 162 – Friday 10th June – my daughter injured her hand at school on Tuesday. I’ve been resisting taking her to get it checked, but took her today – and she’s chipped the knuckle, poor girl!
Day 163 – Saturday 11th June – today’s the day my husband has been looking forward to for ages – England’s first game in Euro 2016. We’d planned a barbecue, so of course it’s raining. Today also marks the start of a month without being able to watch anything but football on TV in our house.
