Project 365 2019 Week 28

It’s been a busy week with a lot of school performances and even a couple of days out.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 188 – Sunday 7th July – as we had a day without sport and my eldest didn’t have work, we went to Bristol for a few hours. Bristol is always our favourite place to visit when we have a bit of spare time. Although the highlight of the day for me was going with my younger son to see a local artist called Luzzey at a free open air gig at Cheltenham music festival. My son is doing brilliantly. Just a week after his accident, he managed to walk 12,000 steps – most of them without crutches.

Day 189 – Monday 8th July – our 19th wedding anniversary! We didn’t celebrate as we are celebrating later in the week. My mum bought us these flowers.

Day 190 – Tuesday 9th July – a quiet day without much work. In the evening, my daughter, son and I went to see the drama performance at school he was supposed to be in. Needless to say, he couldn’t take part because he can’t dance with his injury. The only photos I took were of the wonderful flowers I planted in my garden.

Day 191 – Wednesday 10th July – my husband and I went to London for our wedding anniversary. We do this every year. We went to see the new production of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, starring Sheridan Smith. It was brilliant and Sheridan Smith was amazing. We mainly got around on the Santander bikes, although I do find it strange riding with a helmet, which I would never do at home.

Day 192 – Thursday 11th July – I spent the day working at my client’s office. In the evening, I went to my daughter’s school to see her performing. She was as brilliant as ever. The only photo I took was of my window for Instagram Stories.

Day 193 – Friday 12th July – the last day of the school year for my younger son. It was also a tough day for him, because he she should have been competing at nationals today. He watched the competition on live streaming, which strangely seemed to help him. Yes, it’s another flower photo! The pink ones (phloxes) were planted by the previous owner. The colourful ones are mine – two packets of 29p seeds from Lidl! I am so pleased with them.

Day 194 – Saturday 13th July – less than two weeks after his accident, my son decided to walk parkrun. He walked it at a really good pace. He ended up walking with this lady who always walks and gave him some good advice on exercising with a bad hip. My husband got another huge PB – getting below 21 minutes for the first time.

    • Thanks very much, my son is doing remarkably well after his accident. I was so pleased that he did the parkrun. Joseph is amazing! I’ve booked to take my daughter now, but to the touring production rather than London. x

  2. Your son’s doing more walking than I do, and I’ve not just fractured bones! Happy anniversary – I’m not sure I’d want to cycle in London

    • We do a lot of walking in our family anyway. It’s currently the only way my son can regain/ maintain strength, so he is doing as much as he possibly can. I love cycling in London, partly because I hate going on the tube!

    • Thanks very much, we had a lovely time in London. I’m impressed by how quickly my son is recovering and how positive he is being about it (apart from the minor wobble when it was time for the competition).

    • A day without sports? Unbelievable! I hope the musical gig was enjoyable. Your son is improving very well. The flowers look beautiful, especially the purple ones! I hope you and your husbamd had a great anniversary. It must be tough, having to watch a match he could’ve been competing in

      • It is certainly rare for us to have a day without sport, although my husband and I did go running in the morning before we went out! It was hard for my son not to be taking part in the competition, but I am so pleased with how he is recovering and am sure he will come back stronger.

  6. It’s lovely to hear that your son is on the mend. Joseph was one of the first musicals I learnt about as a kid,

    • Thanks very much. I saw Joseph when I was 5 and have known all the words ever since! Was lovely to see it again.

  7. he is doing well with his walking, shame he had to miss a show and the nationals, life can be cruel.
    Hapy Anniversary to you both, nice to get away, and I am like you prefer a helmet when cycling

    • Thanks very much. It is such a shame he missed the nationals. I live in hope that he will be there next year. It seems that injuries are a normal part of life for athletes – and they usually recover and get back to where they were.

    • Thanks very much, my son is doing brilliantly. He was telling me yesterday that he could jog, but I’m banning him until he’s seen the physio next week! I absolutely love Joseph. I saw it for the first time when I was 5 and have always known all of the songs.

  9. Oh wow 19 years! Happy Anniversary! Love those flowers!

    Well done on your son that he managed 12000 steps but a shame re the performance and not being able to take part!
