Project 365 2017 Week 47

After last week’s ‘shoe special’, it’s back to normal and some very dull-looking November photos. Panto rehearsals are continuing and it’s now only a week until opening night.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 323 – Sunday 19th November – a pretty boring day of doing work and housework. The downside of having so much more work on at the moment is that my housework gets pushed on to the weekend. And I really hate housework! Never mind, I’m just glad to have lots of work. My son didn’t play football as we were worried about the possibility of his injured nose getting a knock. The guinea pigs hung out in the kitchen while I cleaned them. I’m not sure if Eric could breathe back there.

Day 324 – Monday 20th November – a very busy day of work. I worked for four freelance clients and wrote a sponsored blogpost. Not bad! I spent most of my day in the spare room. Luckily we decorated it recently, so it’s much easier to work in.

Day 325 – Tuesday 21st November – took my son to the hospital about his broken nose. He needs surgery, but he can’t have it for a long time yet. In the meantime, he needs to use a decongestant nasal spray. Full story on the blog next week…

Day 326 – Wednesday 22nd November – Panto rehearsals are well underway. I took a few photos of my daughter in her leotards for panto for a review for Dance Gear.

Day 327 – Thursday 23rd November – I’m so busy with work at the moment that I’m not getting out in the fresh air as much as I’d like. I managed to get a little walk in the afternoon and the sun was already setting at 3.30pm.

Day 328 – Friday 24th November – I went to work in an actual office for only the second time this year. The time flew by and I was too tired to do any more work when I got home. I took this photo of my garden looking very dreary.

Day 329 – Saturday 25th November – I’m just about recovered from my injury, but haven’t run since Parkrun three weeks ago. I didn’t even walk it today as I had to take my son to school for rugby and my daughter to her rehearsal. That’s only the sixth time I haven’t been there this year, and the seventh time I haven’t run it (I volunteered the day before the Cheltenham half marathon). My garden looked a lot less dreary today as it was frosty.

  1. Eric looks so big now and looks very cosey in there. It really is very frosty and cold now isn’t it? It’s at de-icing stage on my car now and I have no scraper, argh. And it snowed here last night!

    • Eek! Snow?! I must admit I’m a big fan of lukewarm water on the windscreen, combined with putting all the fans on full blast, rather than scraping!

  2. So sorry to hear about your boys broken nose! That must be awful. Your new spare room looks really relaxing for working in especially. #365

    • Thanks very much, the new room is definitely relaxing! My poor boy is struggling with his breathing, but he’s getting used to it!

  3. I’m not sure you’re too worried about not getting the house work done are you Sarah? Not really? Good to be busy, I know you’ve had some real quiet times work wise. Hope your sons nose will be OK. that happened to child 4 he had to wait for 4 weeks before he could have surgery, all fixed and no further problems with it. I love the pics on the wall in the spare room.

    • You know me too well – I’m not bothered about not doing the housework, but I am bothered when I end up having to do it at the weekend! Those spare room pics are SO cheap, but they do look good.

  4. Sorry to hear you’ve had a running injury – not good. Hope your son is ok with his injury too. The guinea pig looks very cosy!

    • The running injury is very frustrating! It’s the first time I’ve had an injury which has completely stopped me from running, rather than just forcing me to run a bit less. Son’s injury is frustrating too, but at least he’s not in pain now and is back to sport.

  5. The guinea pigs look nice and snug there!!

    Sorry to hear about the broken nose! Hope he is not in too much pain. Don’t like the sun setting soo early! Find it a bit depressing.

    • The sun setting early is definitely depressing! Thanks, he’s not in too much pain, but he does have difficulty breathing

  6. Aww! The guinea pigs are just adorable. They look so cosy.
    Oh no! Your poor son. I hope his nose is better soon.
    Frost makes everything look so pretty x

    • Thanks! The nose will improve and luckily isn’t really painful any more, but won’t be properly better until he’s had the surgery x

  7. The guinea pigs do look so cosy in there. I love the picture of your daughter in the dance gear. It is good to be busy. I spent a lot of yesterday doing housework that I’d put off for ages.

    • Thanks very much. It’s a shame my daughter isn’t looking up in the picture, but if she was I wouldn’t have it on my blog! I do dislike doing housework, but it’s a necessary evil.

  8. Oh no what a shame your son needs surgery on his nose, and how is Panto opening in just a week. That seems to have come around so quickly (oh no it hasn’t lol) x

    Post a Reply
    • Panto does seem to have come round very quickly! We say it’s three weeks of rehearsals, but it isn’t actually that long – it’s only really two and a half weeks. It’s a real shame about my son’s nose, but he’s getting used to it! x

  9. I feel so much for your son. I hope the breathing has improved. Hope the panto rehearsals are going well. I wish I could come see her. She looks amazing in her dancing stuff. Tell her I am so proud of her from afar and she is amazing xx

    Post a Reply
    • Thank you! That’s such a lovely thing to say. Hopefully I will get some pictures of her when the show opens.
      My son’s nose has improved a bit, but it’s never going to be very good until he has the surgery. x

  10. Shame he needs an operation, but hope when he gets it it sorts the problems out.
    Love the frosty garden picture.
    Hope you all have the stamina to keep up with all the activities.

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much, I somehow seem to find the stamina from somewhere! It is a shame about my son’s nose, especially that he has to wait so long.

      Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much. We were hoping he would just be able to get his nose reset under anaesthetic, but it turns out it’s more complex than that 🙁
