Project 365 2017 Week 2

It’s been a week dominated by my younger son being endlessly ill.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 8 – Sunday 8th January – my daughter was feeling very sad about the panto being over, so we want a wander round the shops with her vouchers (and she didn’t spend any!). And I was pleased to see daffodils appearing in the garden as I thought my husband had dug them all up along with the weeds when he worked on the garden last year.

Day 9 – Monday 9th January – my younger son had his school uniform on and we were literally on the way out of the house, when we realised he wasn’t well enough for school. So he fell asleep for four hours. And I actually left the house to work – so the proper shoes were required!

Day 10 – Tuesday 10th January – I’m pleased to say my son was well enough for school and I was back to working at home. I’ve also set myself the challenge of turning this new-looking teddy into one as scruffy as my daughter’s beloved Teddy, so she has an alternative for her school residential and Scout camp.

Day 11 – Wednesday 11th January – my son was off school again and slept until 1pm – six hours after he gets up for school! I was back to working on my children’s books, with a 500 page YA novel which is remarkably like Harry Potter, but with the f word in it.

Day 12 – Thursday 12th January – a very rainy day, in which my son managed to wake up at 11am. He just doesn’t seem to be able to shake this illness off! It’s almost impossible to see in this picture, but there is snow falling – which fell for about 30 seconds.

Day 13 – Friday 13th January – we woke up to the lightest dusting of snow and my son went back to school again. He was pale and breathless as he left the house, so I was sceptical about whether it was the right thing for him to do. But, remarkably, he not only made it through the school day, but through a birthday party too!

Day 14 – Saturday 14th January – a frosty, sunny morning and I started the day with Parkrun as usual. This year I’m determined to miss less Parkruns! There were times last year when other stuff got in the way too much. I was very pleased to be the third female across the line today – equalling my record, but with far more runners today – 455!

  3. Huge well done on the Parkrun Sarah, and wow what a lot of runners. We have a Parkrun starting in our town at the end of this month. I am hoping that husband can encourage the teen to join in sometimes. Hope your son is on the road to recovery. Typical that they get ill the minute they go back to school x

    • Thanks very much! I was really pleased with my Parkrun result today. I hope your boy can take part in it sometimes. My boys don’t run as often as I’d like, but it’s good to see them do it from time to time. x

  6. Gosh that is a lot of runners, credit to you all. Glad you enjoy it every week.
    Nothing worse than kids picking upo bugs and feeling lousy, but when they sleep like that you know they are genuine.
    She will be sad to see the back of the panto, but if she did it all 52 weeks of the year the novelty would wear off.

    • The novelty of panto would definitely wear off after 52 weeks! Thanks 🙂

  7. ooo I can’t wait to see how the teddy bear scruffing works out. That is definitely forward thinking! #project365

    • Thanks very much! I’m actually quite enjoying scruffing him, although I feel very cruel!

  8. Well done on the park run, I must check if our garden has any daffodils, although our light dusting of snow may make them hibernate! I hope your little boy is feeling better very soon.

    • Thanks very much! He’s finally better! I’ve been surprised by how many daffodils have suddenly sprung up in our garden.

  9. It is so lovely to see the bulbs poking through the soil now. Glad you have some left to enjoy. Well done on the park run result.

    • Thanks very much. I was so pleased with the Parkrun result! I’m amazed by how many bulbs we still have left, because we did seem to lose rather a lot when the garden was done.

  10. awww your poor son – he must have been really poorly to have slept so much. seeing bulbs popping through the ground means that spring is on the way 🙂
    we didn’t get any snow – not even a fluttering, but I was pleased to be honest . Great park run result x

  11. Hope your son is fully over his illness. Must be strange no longer having the panto in your lives again.

  12. Glad your son is feeling better. He did the best thing taking his bed for plenty of rest!
    You had about the same amount of snow that we had!
