Week 50. How is it week 50?!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 342 – Sunday 8th December – my son had a really tough football match in horrible weather (a 6-1 defeat against a very good team), but at least he scored. My daughter went to her friend’s to do some homework and I nipped into the local Christmas tree festival with my eldest.
Day 343 – Monday 9th December – my daughter left ballet early to get to her Scouts’ performance, but still managed to miss it. It was a shame, as it will be our last one and we have been enjoying these performances for many years. The only photo we took was of Cedric’s foot, because it seemed to have a bit of a scab on it. His feet remind me of a newborn baby’s foot.
Day 344 – Tuesday 10th December – a busy start to the day as I had to drive my eldest to work and my daughter to panto, as well as giving my younger son a lift to school as usual. (My eldest usually cycles to work.) My work is getting slightly quieter, so I might actually manage to do some more wrapping this week. I’m ready for Christmas TV at least!
Day 345 – Wednesday 11th December – I did a lot of work. I actually took this photo for work and it was quite fitting as I got my Christmas cards in the postbox today. Will deliver the local ones in a few days. My poor son is injured AGAIN. He thinks it’s shin splints this time. His GCSE PE means he’s very aware of his body, injury and recovery. He seems to be stuck in this endless cycle of getting injured, taking two weeks to recover, getting back to sport and getting injured again two weeks later.
Day 346 – Thursday 12th December – a busy day. Dropped my daughter off for panto at 9, then went to vote. (It was also my son’s first time voting!) Went home and did a bit of work before going to watch my daughter’s second performance of the day. In the evening, we went to Bristol to see the Wonder Stuff, who were my favourite band in the 6th form. I was actually into them before I was into the Levellers (who are still my favourites today). The venue in Bristol is horrible, but we seem to go there every year without fail.
Day 347 – Friday 13th December – well, that wasn’t supposed to happen! Regretting my smiley face in yesterday’s photo now. Here’s the two extremes of election reporting.
Day 348 – Saturday 14th December – back to our home parkrun for the first time in a couple of weeks and it was very wet and muddy. This is my husband and his muddy legs. My daughter has panto later – day six and performances 11 and 12.
