It’s been a busy week, with a lot of coming and going for the kids.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 195 – Sunday 14th July – my husband and I went for a 13 mile run in the morning, just for fun! My daughter packed up her stuff for camping the next day and we had a visit from my niece and nephew. The only photos I took were of the garden and the wonderful wildflowers I planted for 58p.
Day 196 – Monday 15th July – the first day of the summer holidays for my younger son and off to camp for my daughter. Life feels a bit strange without my daughter and the school run. The day seems rather too long. Although I did discover that less responsibility meant more time sitting in the garden reading, so it’s not all bad! I took this photo on my afternoon walk (walk number two of three in the day).
Day 197 – Tuesday 16th July – my younger son went away early in the morning to meet his German exchange family, who are on holiday in England. It involved a long train journey, but my husband went most of the way with him. And my daughter came home from her camp. No photo of my human boys, just my favourite furry boys.
Day 198 – Wednesday 17th July – I had to have a filling in a wisdom tooth. I’m not a person who is scared of the dentist, but I can safely say it was one of the most horrendous experiences of my life. My daughter had an athletics competition in the evening, but she was still tired from her camp. My husband and son got home at about 9.30pm.
Day 199 – Thursday 18th July – my workload is going down again, so it was a pretty quiet day. The only photos I took were off a Marmite jar I smashed on the kitchen floor and my window for Instagram stories. The Marmite jar definitely wasn’t a photo worth sharing!
Day 200 – Friday 19th July – the end of term and last day of year 8 for my daughter. It has been another good year of school for her, and she is sad that it’s over.
Day 201 – Saturday 20th July – I tried to run parkrun a bit faster today and think I got my fastest time this year, although I still can’t get below 23 minutes. My son walked it again and managed to walk it in 37 minutes! That’s faster than my dad’s PB.
