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 – Monday 13th June – over the last few weeks, I’ve had A LOT more work than I had in May. In fact, it’s gone full circle and I’m almost at the point where I can’t cope with the amount I’ve got! One of the jobs I did was proofreading a dissertation for one of the mums at school. Of course she paid me, but she also bought me these lovely flowers to say thanks. I was very touched!

Day 166 – Tuesday 14th June – for the second time in three days, it rained so much it felt like the world might end (on Sunday, it rained so much that our downstairs toilet started bubbling loudly – eek!). I always says there’s a river outside the house when it rains, but it’s usually about a third of the width of the road, but this was the full width. I took this photo through the safety of the window!

Day 167 – Wednesday 15th June – another busy day of work and after yet another torrential downpour, I was amazed to see lots of perfect raindrops clinging onto this blossom.

Day 168 – Thursday 16th June – I went for a six mile run before I started work and have now run more than 300 miles this year.

Day 169 – Friday 17th June – for the first time in a week, we had a period of blue sky and some sun. Both of my boys set off for Scout camp, so I hope the weather stays dry for them.

Day 170 – Saturday 18th June – we went to see Coldplay at Wembley! I’m not a huge Coldplay fan, but it was a fantastic show.

  1. Those flowers are really beautiful. I’m impressed with all your running too, I’m definitely going to keep track next year. I’m glad your work has picked up, although I know how you feel about it being a bit overwhelming when you’ve got a lot on – it’s always a relief as well when you’re freelance.

    • Thanks! I need to keep my running up. I feel a bit guilty and stressed by it when I have a lot of work on, although it definitely relaxes me on the whole! x
