November is here, half term is finally over, the clocks have changed and it feels like winter has arrived.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 301 – Sunday 28th October – after loving Bohemian Rhapsody when I went to see it with my friend, I went to watch it again with my daughter, who really enjoyed it. My husband decided not to go at the last minute because the reviews weren’t great. That is mainly down to reviewers thinking they have played down Freddie Mercury’s sexuality, but the film is set in the 70s and 80s, when people didn’t realise Elton John was gay either! Plus, Brian May and Roger Taylor wanted it to be a family-friendly film.
Day 302 – Monday 29th October – my younger son went back to school, but the other two are off until Thursday, not that I really saw them! My daughter spent the day in town with her friend and my son had his girlfriend round. I got some new trainers. They are a much nicer colour than my old ones (although I never choose them based on colour) and you can see how badly I needed them after running three half marathons in the old ones.
Day 304 – Wednesday 31st October – a quiet day of work and a very rushed Halloween, due to my mum taxi duties with my son’s rugby and my daughter’s rehearsals. I’m not sure what kids who called at our house thought when the door was answered!
Day 305 – Thursday 1st November – the kids finally went back to school and of course I had my quietest day of work in six weeks! Why does that always happen? I may have sneaked off and had a nice piece of cake and a read of my book, which is something I never usually do. Why on earth do they provide a plastic fork? I’m not impressed!
Day 306 – Friday 2nd November – another quiet day of work and a very cold and frosty start. I photographed the sky at 6am, just before sunrise.
Day 307 – Saturday 3rd November – a very rushed morning, trying to get my son to an away rugby game and me to parkrun! Luckily my eldest helped out with dropping his brother off, then I went along to watch the game. Unfortunately they got defeated, but my son got man of the match.
