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.
