Project 365 2017 Week 8

The kids went back to school after half-term and there was a real feeling of spring in the air.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 50 – Sunday 19th February – the day started with a lovely pink sky. This was taken several hours before anyone else in my house got out of bed. I watched my son’s football for the first time in a few weeks. Sadly, they were beaten 2-1, but my son scored his team’s only goal – maintaining his 100% record of scoring in every game.

Day 51 – Monday 20th February – back to school for my eldest, but the younger two had an inset day. My son went to the cinema with friends and my daughter requested a trip to town, which seems to be her favourite thing to do at the moment. It was pretty mild, but I was shocked when I saw this temperature in the car!

Day 52 – Tuesday 21st February – back to school for the kids and back to work for me. The first daffodils are out in my garden, which makes me very happy. I’m a little bit obsessed with daffodils and spring!

Day 53 – Wednesday 22nd February – I worked on an article at home and noticed we have a handful of crocuses in the front garden.

Day 54 – Thursday 23rd February – a quiet day at home and Storm Doris hit!

Day 55 – Friday 24th February – I gave the house a really good clean and tidy as my eldest had some exciting visitors. Looking at the fireplace once it was clean, I’m not sure if I’d ever dusted it before!

Day 56 – Saturday 25th February – I totally forgot to take a photo at Parkrun, but as I’m not likely to do anything else interesting today, I took a photo of my dirty trainers when I got home! I was very pleased with my result this week. Although my time was the same as last week, at 23:43, I was 74th out of 402 runners, 1st in my age category and 3rd female overall.

    • Thanks very much! I think I caught the sky at just the right time. We’ve got a small patch of daffodils in full bloom and the rest of them are in bud.

  4. You have an amazing set of photos this week. How gorgeous is that sky? I’m more of a night person so miss out on the beautiful sunrises but I’m trying to change that!
    17-degrees is really warm, although I don’t think it as ever that warm in Oxfordshire…or at least it didn’t feel like it.
    Well done your boy and his 100% record – very impressive!
    None of my daffs have sprung yet. I love seeing them too, the burst of yellow is just wonderful!

    • Thanks very much, I’m very proud of my boy for his goals! I must admit I was surprised that it was 17 degrees – I would have put money on it being 13 or 14. I am absolutely loving my daffodils 🙂

    • Thanks very much. I’ve definitely had enough of winter! I think I just caught that sky at the right moment.

  5. Well done on the running, 1st and 3rd are both brilliant. It was lovely here till Doris came along and it’s been a bit drizzly ever since. Hoping we have better weather this week!

  7. you always do so well at Park run.
    Hope Doris did not do too much damage for you.
    Very mild for February indeed.
    Great sunrise

    • Thanks very much! I was especially pleased with that Parkrun performance. We were lucky that Doris didn’t do much damage – just a lot of twigs blown off trees!

  8. We had the same temperature as well. It’s been very mild. My hair is permanently like that any time there’s a touch of wind. makes me wonder why I actually do my hair.

    • Glad it’s not just my hair that goes crazy in the wind! I don’t really do my hair as such, so it doesn’t bother me too much.

  10. well done on your Parkrun – I was going to say score lol but thats not right! Well done on your time and position . That was very mild for this time of year wasn’t it? we had a day yesterday where it said 14 in the car but 17 is very warm. and then storm Doris hit and it all went cold and windy! Love when you have taken time to clean something and can see and appreciate the results. x

    • Thanks very much. I was so pleased with my time and position! I guess I’ll have to start keeping things cleaner all the time now, won’t I? 😉

  11. Consistent speeds there – I can only just scrape under 25 mins at a 5 k, think I actually prefer plodding slower for longer! Love your pink sky and the daffodils too – waiting desperately for mine to emerge!

  13. We are still very cold and wet up here. My hair is so fine and it does the same thing. It is a lovely photo of you though. I love seeing the splash of colour i the flowers, we haven’t seen any yet. xx
