January is finally over and we got some snow!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 27 – Sunday 27th January – this might not look like a momentous image, but it’s pretty significant to us. My younger son has completed his course of Roaccutane, the strongest acne medication there is, which he was on for most of last year. Both sons have now been on it and I’ve been on it myself for nearly five years. I’m hoping my daughter escapes the curse, but I’m not confident.
Day 28 – Monday 28th January – very regular readers might remember that my wardrobe collapsed about three months ago. I’ve been living off a pile of clothes, with a few things hung over the wardrobe doors ever since. My husband finally mended it today. Yes, I do have a lot of hoodies and a lot of Superdry. And, yes, my wardrobe is very small. It belonged to the boys and was supposed to be temporary when we moved in five years ago.
Day 29 – Tuesday 29th January – a fairly unsatisfactory day of waiting for people to call me for work, but not actually doing very much work. I had one boy at home all day for a study day and the other one home slightly early because of a 6th form open evening. Was hoping for a snowy photo opportunity, but it didn’t snow. The only photo I took was off this chocolate. I’m still working my way through my Christmas chocolate and I’m not convinced that raspberry and chocolate are a good combination, even though I like them both individually.
Day 30 – Wednesday 30th January – a very cold day and a much better photo. There were droplets of ice on our tree. The sunrise in the background was an added bonus. Work has suddenly got very busy and I even did a bit in the evening, which is unheard of.
Day 31 – Thursday 31st January – a busy day of work. After the coldest night of the winter so far, we woke to a thick frost. This isn’t the most popular picture I shared today – check out my Instagram, you will know exactly which one I’m talking about.
Day 32 – Friday 1st February – we woke up to the snow we’d been waiting for! It didn’t hang around for long, though.
Day 33 – Saturday 2nd February – our parkrun was called off, so my husband and I headed for Gloucester North parkrun, along with half of Gloucestershire. This is the parkrun where I was first lady a couple of months ago, but that wasn’t going to happen today when it was so busy.
