I’ve had my busiest week of work in a long time, thank goodness, I really needed it!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 120 – Sunday 30th April – regular readers will know I love my running, but I feel like I’ve loved it even more in April. It’s probably because the spring weather is perfect for running – not too hot or too cold, plus I’ve got no pressure to train for a half marathon. So I ran 65 miles in April, taking my total for the year up to 227 miles. My son had his final league football match of the season, which didn’t have quite the dream ending we’d hoped for.
Day 121 – Monday 1st May – the boys went out with their friends, my daughter and I went for a spot of retail therapy (for her!) and my husband did the gardening. I will spare you a photo of Claire’s. This is an old garden ornament which was basically the only thing in our small yard when my eldest was a baby. It’s not needed now we have a ‘proper’ garden, so my husband had dumped it by the shed. I was sad to see one of the heads had fallen off.
Day 122 – Tuesday 2nd May – one of the busiest days of work I’ve had in about a year. It’s a really long time since I last worked flat-out and I really enjoyed it. My bank balance needs a few more days like that too! It was a lovely warm day and I had my lunch outside for the first time this year. Hopefully I will be outside most days until October now.
Day 123 – Wednesday 3rd May – my daughter’s school was closed today due to problems with the pipes. This has never happened before in my 12 years as a school mum. I was busy with work and this was a photo I took for work. My son had another chance with his football in the evening, as his team played in the play-off for promotion to the league above. And this time he got the dream!
Day 124 – Thursday 4th May – another day of working at home. The day started cold and cloudy, but then it turned warm and sunny.
Day 125 – Friday 5th May – my daughter and I had a rare evening out. We went for pizza with her best friend from panto and her mum, then went to see the ballet Alice in Wonderland at the Swan Theatre in Worcester. Strangely, I did my work experience at the Swan Theatre when I was 16, but I have precisely no recollection of it!
Day 126 – Saturday 6th May – I was pleased to get the whole family out for Parkrun again. It seems like they are all pretty committed to it at the moment. My younger son got yet another PB – his fourth consecutive one! I think he’s trying to challenge my record of five consecutive PBs. I saw these just as we were leaving – the pacers’ vests all hanging in a tree.
