We might (don’t jinx it) be looking at a nicer week weatherwise to finish this week which has had a lot of April showers and turned a bit colder. The week’s been a bit more mixed with strikes, an office day and midweek football. Here’s our week 17 of Project 52.
Sunday was a fairly relaxing day, once the morning run around getting things I needed, diesel etc. N spent the morning finishing his art project.
On Monday I was in the office for work and potholes were on the discussion when we first got in. Apart from our project team who were in, the usual regulars weren’t in which was strange not to see them. It was nice to be back in there and seeing people face to face. Tennis was off due to the terrible weather – frustrating the weather didn’t play ball given there’s a few weeks we can’t get the courts for coaching.
Tuesday it was back working from home. A lovely day weatherwise, of course when there was no sport on. Not much happening, just dropping off some more Vinted sales (to annoying people requesting specific posting days, and others who were taking the mickey in the amount of discount they wanted. If they’re asking for such a huge discount I won’t give them any off, whereas those who’re more realistic, I might knock a small amount off then they’ll usually buy straight away.
On Wednesday there was lots going on at work. Afterwards it was an away football match. It ended up being a late night after the boys got beaten. All my tv recording schedule was deleted, so I’ve had to try and remember which shows I needed to set up to record again.
Thursday was another teacher’s strike day so N was home. He had 3 lessons sending work, but no generic key stage work this time. So he was done by just after 9.30. It was handy because he basically cooked most of dinner, so I could just keep working. It was a better tea than my attempt putting pastries in. I put them in for a further minute, then got distracted. You never smell food cooked in the aga until the door’s open, so oops. They were a bit burnt after 25 minutes.
On Friday it was my short working day before the lovely long weekend. It was a good farming day, as TB results were clear. Phew. N had group tennis which was lovely to watch and chat to other parents in the sun.
Saturday whizzed by. N’s throat was a bit tight, so we’re hoping it doesn’t end up being tonsillitis. His last football match of the league season was called off due to the opponents not having a team. It was strange but nice to have a morning free. We nipped to the shops for various things, then I did some reading, prepped dinner and tried to feel a bit relaxed. It never really feels like that on a weekend because it always feels like you’re cooking or washing or doing other things inbetween sitting down.
