A week off work

We should have been on holiday in Padstow last week. We booked it way back in August last year, when the world was getting back to normal and we couldn’t possibly imagine things would all go horribly wrong again. We just chose one of the weeks of the Easter holidays at random, without putting any thought into it. We chose the wrong one. If we’d have chosen this week, we would be in Padstow right now, without question....

Project 365 2017 Week 15

The Easter holidays are finally here and we’ve actually done a lot more than we usually do in the holidays. Here’s our week in pictures… Day 99 – Sunday 9th April – a beautiful hot, sunny day, perfect for the guinea pig’s first bath of the year – and Wilfred’s first ever bath.

It’s become a bit of a tradition of mine to take a photo of the pylons and put them on Instagram. Day 95 – Monday 4th April – my...

Project 366 Week 13

The first week of the Easter holidays hasn’t been particularly exciting. Regular readers will know that I’m not very good at making school holidays fun. Ironically, being a work at home mum makes it harder than actually going out to work, as I pretty much have to do some work every day and at any time an email or phone call could come in that has to take priority over everything else. Here’s our week in...
