It’s been a busy couple of weeks – my daughter’s last week at primary school, the start of the school holidays and an awful lot of packing and unpacking.
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 197 – Sunday 16th July – my family returned from their camping trip. I’d really missed them. The house feels too big and quiet without them. I’d done a lot of cleaning and tidying while they were away, then got a load of dirty washing and rucksacks dumped on me!
Day 198 – Monday 17th July – the start of my daughter’s final week at primary school! I spotted this beautiful sunset and went out into the garden to photograph it, then saw my daughter photographing it out of the bathroom window.
Day 199 – Tuesday 18th July – I’m busy with work this week, which is very welcome. But I’ve still managed to top 400 miles running this year. Which doesn’t actually sound like that much, in some ways.
Day 200 – Wednesday 19th July – my daughter and I went to see my son in a school drama performance. It was very entertaining. I took a photo of these flowers in the garden, which I always think of as being late summer flowers.
Day 201 – Thursday 20th July – my daughter chose this card for her teacher. She said it sums him up perfectly. I walked home with her for the last ever time as tomorrow will be an unusual day. It’s hard to get my head round that after 12 years.
Day 202 – Friday 21st July – my daughter’s final day at primary school and my last day as a primary school parent, after 12 years. The leavers’ assembly was very emotional and my daughter was so sad about leaving school, but she still had a good day with a limo ride and tea at TGI Friday’s with her friends. Look how cute she was seven years ago!
Day 203 – Saturday 22nd July – we got up early to visit our friends in Weymouth. We haven’t seen them for two years, but they’re such good friends it soon felt like we only saw them yesterday. The weather was a bit unpredictable, but we spent some time walking around the town.
Day 204 – Sunday 23rd July – we went home after our flying visit to Weymouth, but not before a beach barbecue breakfast.
Day 205 – Monday 24th July – the first day of the school holidays was a pretty boring one. My daughter returned from a sleepover, my younger son went on a sleepover and I tried to do as much work as I could. My daughter tested out this dancewear from Dance Gear (review coming up soon).
Day 206 – Tuesday 25th July – we went to Mountain Warehouse, which is one of my absolute favourite shops, to get supplies for my daughter for her Scout camp at the weekend. Would you believe I got all of this for £21.57? My son came back from his sleepover and brought his friend with him for yet another sleepover. They also walked over 20 miles playing Pokemon Go.
Day 207 – Wednesday 26th July – I treated myself to a pack of Harry Potter socks. Today I was in Hufflepuff.
Day 208 – Thursday 27th July – my daughter’s best friend came round in the morning. In the evening we went a walk with Daddy, you’re never to old for a shoulder ride.
Day 209 – Friday 28th July – my younger two kids are off on Scout camp for a week tomorrow, so we got cracking with the packing. Unlike her brothers, my daughter packed a pair of pants for every day.
Day 210 – Saturday 29th July – my kids set off on their Scout camp and I was pleased to say there wasn’t a single tear from my daughter, unlike last time. My husband also set off for London for his Ride London 100 mile bike ride tomorrow.
