Project 365 2017 Week 41

It’s been another busy week of work, although I did take a rare day off.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 261 – Sunday 8th October – over the weekend we’ve been for an early evening walk every day. I caught this rainbow over the railway crossing, even though it wasn’t actually raining.

Day 262 – Monday 9th October – I’m very pleased that a new client has come back to me with more work. Usually I just sit and write, but this one required a bit of brainstorming and scribbling on actual paper with an actual pen to get my thoughts ordered. I was so busy that I forgot I was supposed to be meeting fellow 365-er Suzanne from Chicken Ruby. Luckily we’d arranged to meet just down the road, so I wasn’t too late!

Day 263 – Tuesday 10th October – another busy day of work and I had an informal parents’ evening at my daughter’s school, which went very well (apart from being another logistical nightmare!). The only photo I took was of the last flowers to come out in the garden this year.

Day 264 – Wednesday 11th October – Today was a day I would describe as ‘good for the soul’, when I actually took time to do things for me. I went to the cinema to see The Glass Castle, a true story based on a book I’ve read recently. It was brilliantly done and I would definitely recommend it. Then in the evening I went to the Cheltenham Literature Festival to hear two new crime writers talking about their books.

Day 265 – Thursday 12th October – another busy day of work, which started off with this beautiful sunrise.

Day 266 – Friday 13th October – an incredibly warm day. Every time I went outside I just couldn’t believe how mild it was. This was the temperature when I took my son to school in the morning. Both boys went on Scout camps in the evening, so my daughter will have a quiet weekend.

Day 265 – Saturday 14th October – I ran a slow Parkrun with my daughter and tagged another five miles on as it’s only a week until the Stroud half marathon. I’ve been struggling with injury, so running eight miles felt like winning the lottery. It was the first Parkrun when my husband, daughter and I all wore our Parkrun 50 milestone Tshirts together.

    Good for you for taking some time out for yourself!
    It was so warm here on Friday too….Shame it didn’t last. Today has been grey, cold & damp.

  3. Those 50 run Tshirts are so cool and you definitely should be proud to get those. Hope you had a lovely catch up with Suzanne, good thing you weren’t meeting too far away! Our parents evening is next week. I find this one a bit odd as they don’t really know the kids yet other than to tell you what they should be learning (which they did last week!)

    • It was great to catch up with Suzanne. I must have had foresight when I arranged it for just down the road! Hope the parents’ evening goes well.

  4. Oh I love the picture in your park run tshirts, what a great achievement for you all. Loving the idea of a ‘good for the soul’ day too, and isn’t it important that we make time to do things for ourselves. Hope your daughter isn’t missing the boys too much x

    • Funnily enough she didn’t miss the boys at all! It was a very nice to have a few hours to myself, It doesn’t happen very often at all! x

  5. Glad you made it in time to meet Suzanne, always nice to put a voice to a face.
    It has been very mild here lately as well, wet and windy but not cold.
    Hope the blog post pulls together easily.

  7. Love the last photo 🙂 My family are all going to be running a 5k at the end of the month. We’ll all run at different paces, and we’ll have the stroller for the wee girl in case she flags half way, but it will be so brilliant for us all to run! Your day off sounds wonderful x
