Project 365 2019 Weeks 22 & 23

It’s been a busy couple of weeks with A Levels and lots of concerts. Here’s our fortnight in pictures… Day 146 – Sunday 26th May – we travelled to Wales to see my son in an athletics competition. It was well worth the journey, because he won the long jump and smashed his PB – jumping over 6 metres for the first time. Day 147 – Monday 27th May – bank holiday Monday. We didn’t do a...

The Lost Man by Jane Harper

The Dry by Jane Harper was one of my favourite reads of 2017 and Force of Nature was one of my favourite reads of 2018. So I had high hopes for Jane Harper’s third novel, The Lost Man.

The new athletics season and a new PB

My younger son is a very good rugby and football player, but it’s actually in athletics that he really shines. Unfortunately, he can’t do much athletics training over the winter because of the demands of his football and rugby, but once the athletics season comes round, he gives it his all. His enthusiasm for athletics knows no bounds and he will happily sacrifice kicking a ball around with his friends at lunchtime to put...
