The Easter holidays are finally here and we’ve actually done a lot more than we usually do in the holidays.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 99 – Sunday 9th April – a beautiful hot, sunny day, perfect for the guinea pig’s first bath of the year – and Wilfred’s first ever bath. He didn’t exactly enjoy it, but at least it was quick with his short hair.
Day 100 – Monday 10th April – the first day of the Easter holidays. Both boys went out with their friends and my daughter and I pottered around, as well as opening her bank account. We went for a bike ride in the evening.
Day 101 – Tuesday 11th April – I finally bit the bullet and had the puberty talk with my daughter. I was also pleased to get my first bit of work in for over a week.
Day 102 – Wednesday 12th April – my husband had a job to do in London, so we all went along for a day out. We introduced the kids to Camden, which is an area I loved when I lived in London. We also finally managed to get inside the Lego Shop, which was stunning, but actually smaller than I’d imagined! It was hard to decide what photo to use for today, but I’ve shared more over on my Instagram.
Day 103 – Thursday 13th April – we took the kids to Alton Towers. I’ll be honest, going to Alton Towers is not my favourite thing to do, but the kids all love it and so does my husband. We had a good day and they went on all of the rides they wanted to go on, including The Smiler.
Day 104 – Friday 14th April – our local outdoor pool opened for the season today and guess who went there twice and went in the water despite it being only 14 degrees? My daughter! Apart from going to the swimming pool once (and most definitely not going in the water), I had work and housework to do. I’m cheating a bit with my photo as it was taken at Alton Towers, but I only posted it on Instagram today. Yes, I read my book at a theme park.
Day 105 – Saturday 15th April – I was pleased to get the entire family out running at Parkrun today, for the first time in about six months. Not only that, but I got my fifth consecutive PB! My time is now 22:31 and I finished 95th out of a massive 521 runners. I was 10th female and first in my age category. I was very proud of my younger son for getting a PB too.
