It’s been a better week after my daughter was so poorly last week. We’re just happy it’s half-term now.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 36 – Sunday 5th February – I suffer from the worst eczema on my hands in winter, which makes a lot of everyday tasks very painful. I’m hoping these are going to revolutionise my life!
Day 37 – Monday 6th February – we decided my daughter wasn’t quite ready to go back to school. We now she is suffering from inflamed lungs and a chest infection, not ‘just a cough’. We hope she will be back at school tomorrow. There are more signs of life in our garden, which I’m very happy to see.
Day 38 – Tuesday 7th February – my daughter finally went back to school and ballet. She was clearly tired afterwards, but she survived it. After nearly three months, she finally got the results of her grade 3 ballet exam.
Day 39 – Wednesday 8th February – a quiet day working at home for me, I’d almost forgotten how it feels to work without Dance Moms blaring! I had some good news about a potential new client, so I’m keeping everything crossed that it works out. I spotted these snowdrops in my mum’s garden.
Day 40 – Thursday 9th February – I went to watch my daughter’s tap and jazz class. These are probably the styles I am least familiar with, but I really enjoyed it! My daughter hasn’t done a tap exam since her Grade 1 and the teacher says that realistically they are unlikely to do any more as there isn’t the time, but she is probably working at about Grade 3 level now.
Day 41 – Friday 10th February – the last day of school before half-term! I worked very hard on one of my kids’ books – reading 300 pages in a day, which is probably my record. The day was very cold and dreary and it snowed for about five minutes. I didn’t get a photo of the snow, but this is the miserable sky (with no filters).
Day 42 – Saturday 11th February – no Parkrun for me today as I’ve pulled muscles coughing. I tried to run on Thursday and managed 42 seconds before I realised it was too painful! It snowed very lightly, but there was no way it was ever going to settle. This is the view through my daughter’s window – you can just about make out a couple of flakes of snow on the glass.
