I got a year older and it rained a lot.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 265 – Sunday 22nd September – my 46th birthday! The forecast was for terrible weather, so we had a much more indoor sort of day than usual. We went bowling in the morning. In the evening, my husband and I went to Wagamama (my very favourite place), then to see Downton Abbey.
Day 266 – Monday 23rd September – back to work and another busy day. I don’t often share photos of my front garden. It has a lot less flowers and not a lot grows there. We planted this at the start of summer and it was just two stalks. I can’t believe how much it has grown and there are still flowers coming out even in September.
Day 267 – Tuesday 24th September – a very wet day, but I had to run! Just a short one today as I’m looking after my legs ahead of Cheltenham half marathon on Sunday.
Day 268 – Wednesday 25th September – a busy morning of work, but I’m pleased to say that the end is in sight for a big job I have been working on. I went to pick my daughter up from school (she usually gets the bus), so we could go to the theatre to sort out her licence application for panto. Most of the families were there, but there had been a mix-up and the person actually dealing with the paperwork wasn’t there. That was nearly three hours of my life I won’t get back. I have been reading this book and worrying about my own effect on climate change (review coming soon).
Day 269 – Thursday 26th September – a rainy day. Went to my son’s school concert in the evening. The only photo I took was of my window for my Instagram stories and another book photo!
Day 270 – Friday 27th September – I saw this on Twitter and took a screenshot. Why do 50% of young people need to go to university? I actually don’t think it’s right. There aren’t enough graduate jobs out there and young people are going away and getting into huge debt. I’m very proud that, despite his good A Levels, my son decided to do an apprenticeship instead.
Day 271 – Saturday 28th September – I volunteered at parkrun, as tail walker (the person who crosses the line last), as it’s the half marathon tomorrow. It was also my husband’s first ever time volunteering – and he enjoyed it!
