A week that started with the Tewkesbury half marathon and one where I didn’t have anywhere near enough work. Here’s hoping it picks back up soon!
I think this is my nicest set of photos for a long time. Isn’t it so much easier to take good photos at this time of year?
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 133 – Sunday 13th May – Tewkesbury half marathon day! It was hot, but I enjoyed running it and I only went a got a PB!
Day 134 – Monday 14th May – a lovely warm and sunny day. I wasn’t too worried that I didn’t have a lot of work as my legs were aching from the half marathon. I took this photo on one of my regular afternoon walks. Look at that sky!
Day 135 – Tuesday 15th May – a bit of a milestone for me. Regular readers will have heard me talk about the children’s books I work with. Today, after nearly four years of working with them, I worked on my last one. It was my own decision to give them up when the contract came round for renewal as I was struggling to find time to fit them in. I will miss them, but I don’t think I will regret my decision.
Day 136 – Wednesday 16th May – my daughter has been teaching herself gymnastics over the last few months and keeps saying she ‘needs’ a trampoline. But they ruin the grass and the novelty tends to wear off, so we’ve said no. She’s compromised by buying herself a small fitness trampoline, which she seems happy with at the moment.
Day 137 – Thursday 17th May – I managed my first run since the half marathon comfortably, so hopefully I’ve managed to avoid injury. Work has been extremely quiet this week. A sponsored blogpost earned me more than I need to earn today, but I haven’t earned enough this week in total. The garden is looking lovely at the moment. I reluctantly decided to use my extra spare time for some weeding.
Day 138 – Friday 18th May – another very quiet day of work, but at least it meant I could do the housework before the weekend! Doing housework at the weekend is something I particularly dislike, but it’s a necessary evil when I’m busy with work. I go for a walk most days before I pick my son up from school and took a photo of these buttercups.
Day 139 – Saturday 19th May – a busy day! My younger son set off on his final D of E Bronze expedition, my husband and I did parkrun, then he went off to watch the FA Cup Final. My daughter and I are going to watch the Royal Wedding at my mum’s house.
