The summer holidays are now well underway and this fortnight has been one of two halves – one week with my younger son at home and the other with him away on Scout camp. The house definitely isn’t the same without him.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 206 – Sunday 24th July – Pokemon Go continues to dominate our lives, in a good way. My son is walking around 11 miles a day searching for Pokemon, which I think is brilliant. The rest of us are spending plenty of time walking with him too. Can you spot the boy in a Pokemon frenzy here?
Day 207 – Monday 25th July – I always sort out the school uniforms at the very start of the holidays and today was my day for getting rid of the old stuff that was too small/ ripped/ stained. I also ironed on lots of name labels.
Day 208 – Tuesday 26th July – we went to check out Jumptastic in Gloucester for a review visit. The kids had a great time.
Day 209 – Wednesday 27th July – my younger son is going on Scout camp on Saturday, so we’re starting the packing early to avoid any last minute panics.
Day 210 – Thursday 28th July – my daughter is playing Pokemon Go now too. I went a walk with her to get her distances up to hatch her eggs.
Day 211 – Friday 29th July – I won’t be running for the next couple of days, so these are my final distances for July. I’m really pleased to have run a lot more than in previous months and am particularly pleased with my two eight mile runs.
Day 212 – Saturday 30th July – at 9am we dropped my younger son off at the village hall for his Scout camp – Essex International Jamboree. I love this sign on the back of the minibus!
Day 313 – Sunday 31st July – the day my husband has been waiting for – he took part in Ride London – a massive 100 mile bike ride through London and Surrey.
Day 314 – Monday 1st August – officially the most boring day of the summer holidays so far – dull, damp, cold, no younger son and nothing to do! But here’s a picture of my husband’s Ride London medal.
Day 315 – Tuesday 2nd August – another boring day, but I did manage another eight mile run and I finally signed up for the Cheltenham half marathon!
Day 316 – Wednesday 3rd August – my daughter went to a drama club for the day, which gave her a break from boredom and me a chance to do lots of work. I was surprised to spot this dragonfly in the garden!
Day 317 – Thursday 4th August – I’m loving reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and spent the whole day in a randomised online queue to try to get tickets for the play. I didn’t get any!
Day 318 – Friday 5th August – we had extra teenage boys on a sleepover in the garden. What could possibly go wrong?
Day 319 – Saturday 6th August – we had some new members of our Parkrun family this week – my mum and dad! I didn’t manage to get a photo of them, so here’s my daughter running through the shadows.
