It’s been a busy week of work and the weather has felt like October most of the time.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 194 – Sunday 12th July – since we last went for a walk up the Malverns a few weeks ago, my daughter has been begging to go again. Knowing I couldn’t manage it after a long run, I replaced my usual 10 mile run with four miles. My daughter was keen to get to the top of the highest hill, so we started in the town of Great Malvern to make sure we did it. We walked seven miles in total. It was very steep and tiring, but we loved it!
Day 195 – Monday 13th July – today my son started work for a new team for his apprenticeship, but he will still be working from home for the foreseeable future. My daughter officially started her school holidays today.
I usually take photos of the flowers in the garden, but these are the flowers I got for my wedding anniversary last week.
Day 196 – Tuesday 14th July – the weather is still pretty miserable. On Tuesdays, I usually go with my son to practise his sprinting. I hope the school holidays will get slightly more interesting for the kids at some point.
Day 197 – Wednesday 15th July – a very busy day of work. I usually finish working at about 2pm, but I was still working at after 6pm. So I’m afraid it’s another photo from my garden. These are the ones that grew from the two packs of 29p seeds.
I was disappointed to hear that Stroud half marathon has now been cancelled, even though it’s not until 25th October. I really hoped that one might go ahead!
Day 198 – Thursday 16th July – another busy day of work, then I had to do the dreaded supermarket shopping. I still hate it and I still obsessively sanitise my hands the whole time I’m in there. My eldest and my daughter are driving me mad with arguing at the moment.
Today I took my last 20mg Roaccutane, which isn’t good as my skin still hasn’t calmed down. It has basically been flaring up since around the time lockdown started. I start on a lower dose tomorrow.
Day 199 – Friday 17th July – I had very little work today and, to be honest, I couldn’t have been happier! I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by it and needed the break. All of the kids saw friends today, which is a first, although my daughter was home after only half an hour. My eldest went out at lunchtime and ended up staying the night.
Today’s photo is my other two lovely boys.
Day 200 – Saturday 18th July – week 5 of official (not)parkrun and my husband was back to running, more slowly than usually, after a few weeks of injury. The rest of the weekend will probably involve gardening and not a lot else!
