It’s another week of Project 52, and it’s been a busy one at work. We had a big project publication and launch at the start of the week, plus I’ve been trying to progress other bits to enable us to move things on faster. It feels like we’re getting somewhere, but sometimes things just take longer than you expect.
I did pop out one lunch with a work friend to a local furniture outlet place so she could look for dining room chairs. It’s lovely to catch up but also made me realise I have to get the OH to agree on some new sofas and chairs. The ones we have are so ragged and ripped it’s really disgraceful. Getting him to the shop would be helpful given he needs to make sure they’d be comfortable for sleeping on at calving time, but he won’t go into town. Sigh.
The week ended with a flexi day for me. It started with taking in a lemon traybake to school for Macmillan coffee morning fundraising – I was pleased mine had all sold by the time I did the school pick up. I sorted out 3 bank accounts with one bank, but still have a handful to sort, and need to move my ISA to one that actually pays some interest. Then I blogged and tried to get my dance blog product planned out. I want to hit Christmas with it, but I’m not sure that’s really feasible given the lack of time I’ve been able to spend on it. I had 5 hours to myself, but it still didn’t feel long enough and I was obviously way too ambitious with what I’d thought I’d get done.
N had his tennis lesson – the group’s increased in size again but it’s nice that there’s a couple of new children who’s miles ahead of the rest of them. It’ll be good to have someone for N to aim for given the new group is just everyone from before. Rather than what they’d told me, that they’d move 4 of them up, and put them with some of the group above them.
Saturday was a lazy day. Swimming lesson with N demoing again (he told me if he demos everything then he will be so good he won’t need lessons anymore!). Bakery trip, lunch. Then helped N do his homework – writing a speech to stand for school council. Evidently none of his year group did one so they’ve all been told to write one) even though N doesn’t want to stand for it because he’s worried he’ll not remember what people will tell him. He went off to pick sloes for my brother to make sloe gin, while I prepped tea and sorted out the washing. I have no idea how a whole day goes so fast without time to actually sit down and do anything.
The one bonus for the week has been the lovely weather. It’s meant we’ve been able to wander in the garden for a bit after work and homework, watching the early season calves in the field and taking photos of what’s left in the garden.
