It feels like school is just round the corner now. For various reasons, this week has been quite stressful. I’ve had a bit more work, but that has really been the only good thing. And my photos aren’t great this week!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 231 – Sunday 19th August – my family got home from camping at about 4pm. They’d had their wettest trip ever and EVERYTHING was soaked. There is stuff drying everywhere.
Day 232 – Monday 20th August – my son had his driving theory test. He had done some preparation for it, but possibly not enough as unfortunately he failed. He got 49 out of 50 in the multiple choice section, but failed the hazard perception section. He wasn’t happy! Luckily he had some other good news later in the day to make it a bit better.
Day 233 – Tuesday 21st August – it’s been a long time since I shared a photo of my garden. Between the heat and the water shortage, the flowers on the phloxes all died off, but since we’ve had more rain, this one has started to flower again.
Day 234 – Wednesday 22nd August – school shoe shopping! It was actually our least painful trip for years. Although we only brought one pair home, the other two pairs are on order. The boys also got haircuts and my younger son got a new school bag – his first one since year 7.
Day 235 – Thursday 23rd August – a pretty quiet day. Went for a six mile run in the morning and did some work. My son went back to football training and my husband is back to coaching this season, after two years off.
Day 236 – Friday 24th August – my daughter, younger son and I had our fourth and final trip to Bristol hunting for Gromits. We have found 57 in total, out of 67. I would love to find them all, but it would take at least one more trip and we don’t have any free time next week. The trail ends on 2nd September.
Day 237 – Saturday 25th August – I was very pleased to get the whole family running at parkrun for the first time in well over a year. My eldest, who is training for the half marathon, got a PB.
