It’s been a busy week dominated by my daughter’s birthday.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 70 – Sunday 11th March – Mother’s Day was one of our better ones. My kids are at an age where they buy their own presents, so this is what they bought me between them. My eldest was slightly in the dog house for not buying me a card, and my younger son surprised me by writing some lovely words in his card, which is totally out of character. My parents came for lunch, then my brother dropped in and ended up staying for ages.
Me, my husband, my dad, my brother and my eldest all went to watch my son play football. After the excitement of a 10-2 win yesterday, they lost 9-5 and it was a particularly nasty game with a horrible opposition coach and players. My son scored a hat trick, including an amazing solo goal, in which he beat four players and ran the length of the pitch to score. He was man of the match, but did come off injured at the end.
Day 71 – Monday 12th March – a slightly frustrating day because I had to wait in for a bathroom delivery in the afternoon, which meant I had to get chores done first thing in the morning, which is the time when I work best, so I ended up sacrificing my morning walk to fit it all in. While I was rushing around, I spotted this stunning street art.
Day 72 – Tuesday 13th March – the bathroom man was back and he got the new lights working and plastered the back wall. The windowsill is new. Apparently we didn’t have one before, I hadn’t realised! I went to help out at my son’s athletics club in the evening and really enjoyed it.
Day 73 – Wednesday 14th March – happy birthday to my 12 year old girl! She had a lovely day, despite the fact that it was a school day, rounded off with a trip to Nando’s. And she has more birthday celebrations coming up over the next few days.
Day 74 – Thursday 15th March – I went to my client’s office to work for most of the day. The bathroom man has been working on the bottom of the shower, but I didn’t get a picture, as he always stores all his tools and equipment back in there at the end of the day, so it’s hard to see much. So I’ll have to make do with a photo of my Mother’s Day flowers – daffodils from my mum and tulips from my husband, all mixed into the same vase because I couldn’t find my other vase.
Day 75 – Friday 16th March – today was the day we’ve seen the most progress on the bathroom. I’m sure as much progress has been made on all the other days, but it hasn’t been as visual. Now all the pipes are covered by a false wall, the drainage is sorted for the shower and we’ve got the mirror in place. My sister and her family came round in the evening for birthday cake.
Day 76 – Saturday 17th March – today my daughter and her friend made me extremely proud. They’d decided to do their own mini triathlon for Sport Relief. They started off with parkrun, then went on to a 10k bike ride (I did both parkrun and the bike ride too) in very strong winds and flurries of snow. They finished off with a 1k swim. A brilliant achievement for a couple of 12 year olds!
