This week I’ve spent a lot of time with just my daughter. The boys are pretty independent and she’s been a bit bored and lonely with most of her friends on holiday.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 224 – Sunday 12th August – my daughter and I caught the train to Birmingham to be in the audience of the new BBC show –The Greatest Dancer. You can just about make out presenters Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo on stage and judge, Cheryl, standing up.
Day 225 – Monday 13th August – we didn’t have any plans and my daughter asked to go Gromit hunting in the afternoon. We decided to find some of the ones we couldn’t find on foot. It was a bit of a crazy idea, with bad traffic on the motorway, but we found six of them. We’ve got just 19 left to find. I don’t know if we will have to time to get them all.
Day 226 – Tuesday 14th August – the younger two and I went over to my son’s friend’s house to pick up his walking bag and sleeping bag he hadn’t had room for in his luggage on the plane. Then my daughter and I went a walk up the hill, so she can break her walking boots in before she goes to Snowdon at the weekend.
Day 227 – Wednesday 15th August – my daughter and I went to the cinema to see Mamma Mia Here We Go Again with our friends from ballet. I’ve been out with the mum a few times before, but this is the first time we’ve taken the girls with us. We absolutely loved the film and thought it was better than the original.
Day 228 – Thursday 16th August – a very quiet day at home. I haven’t shared a photo of my garden for a long time. After a few downpours over the last couple of weeks, parts of our grass are growing and other parts are still very dead. I think it’s going to need cutting soon, though!
Day 229 – Friday 17th August – camping day! Every year my husband takes the kids camping with his friend and his kids. They were pretty late setting off and it took them a long time to get there. It’s pretty lonely at home on my own, but I’m aiming to do lots of reading.
Day 230 – Saturday 18th August – after three weeks of running at different parkruns, I was back to my home parkrun. This is people walking down to the start line, not them running!
