We’re into week 11 of Project 365, and it’s gone from lovely warm weather to freezing. A mixed March. Here’s our week.
On Sunday it was raining in the morning. N asked to go to soft play. On a Sunday in the rain. Thankfully we got there early when it opened and he enjoyed an hour of play before he was bored and wanted to go home. An expensive hour, but he enjoyed it and doesn’t go very often, so it was nice to see him tackle the frame at a year older.
On Monday N came home from after school tennis with a temperature. He’s had a cough since half term – mostly it causes him hassles at night and morning, and then if he gets too excited. He just can’t shake it off. But I wasn’t expecting a temperature. He told me he’d done cross country club at lunch and then tennis, so it obviously just came on quickly. He was quite happy to have an icy smoothie to sooth his throat.
On Tuesday, N stayed off school. His temperature came back down to normal, although he didn’t sleep which I was hoping he’d do while I worked. He’s been waking way too early (4.20 and 5.15 anyone?!) and I think he just needs some sleep. The only photos I took were of the sunset.
On Wednesday the sun was shining back through the window again. I decided to take some more photos of my tulips before they’re too raggedy. They’ve lasted quite well – a week.
On Thursday my Jo Totes camera bag was delivered. I only ordered it 2 evenings before so I was impressed with the service as well as the bag. I’m very excited – hopefully it means I’ll take my camera out more day to day rather than just days out.
Friday whizzed by, and we ended it off at tennis. With the dubious grey, cold, rainy Friday afternoons, the youngest group are still playing indoors in the village hall. They’re working on rallies and underarm serving which seems to be N’s forte…if only there wasn’t a roof! He did some great play, got compliments on his warm up circuits and drills, and did some great shots during the serving practice. It seems sods law though, that everytime he has a good week something happens that means he doesn’t get player of the week. This week, the person from last week had managed to break the trophy so none was awarded.
On Saturday, we made the first trip in a long time to the library in town at N’s request. None of our car parks nearby are free parking, even for 30 minutes, and there’s single yellows and disabled only parking outside the library. So it cost me £1.50 for the 10 minutes it took us to walk there and back, and choose 8 books he wanted. I’m hoping N asking to go to the library and choosing books, may mean that he’ll be more keen to actually read books that aren’t from school!
