It’s been another busy week of work and driving the kids round, with some very changeable weather.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 277 – Sunday 7th October – I took a lot of photos today. They were all of my son, to help him with his GCSE art project on self portraits. Apart from that, his football team suffered another defeat and I ran 10 miles without even feeling tired.
Day 278 – Monday 8th October – I spent the day at my client’s office doing a big proofreading job. The only photo I took was of the michaelmas daisies in the garden (again!). I think they’ve definitely hit their peak now.
Day 279 – Tuesday 9th October – I went to the Cheltenham Literature Festival again today, this time to hear Gail Honeyman, the author of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I also went to a sale of Sweaty Betty sportswear. I love sportswear, but somehow only managed to pick up some gloves!
Day 280 – Wednesday 10th October – a very warm and sunny day and the mum taxi situation hit new heights of exhausting.
Day 281 – Thursday 11th October – parenting has pretty much broken me over the last two or three weeks. I wasn’t happy when my husband announced that he was staying over in London tonight, as I could really do with a break. When I got a text from my son saying he thinks his nose ‘might have straightened’, I knew what that meant. With apologies to my more squeamish readers – yes, that is a gumshield with blood on it. The blood is from my son’s nose. He’s almost certainly broken it for the fourth time – the third time in under a year. There’s nothing we can do about it, other than hope that his nose has chance to mend and doesn’t get broken again too soon.
Day 282 – Friday 12th October – I went out with two of my oldest friends for a meal this evening and thought I would share a photo of the food, but I didn’t take one! They don’t do social media and would have thought I was mad. So instead I’m sharing another photo I’ve used for work. I also had some good work news today – a new contract until the end of the year. It’s just a couple of extra hours’ work a week and it’s good to know I’ll have some regular income.
Day 283 – Saturday 13th October – I ran parkrun with my daughter because she doesn’t like running on her own. Then my daughter and I went to Cheltenham Literature Festival to see Jacqueline Wilson, her absolute favourite author.
