It’s been another hot week. N doesn’t mind it, but I’m not a fan. I’m largely staying inside, or just pottering at home rather than going out. Ideally I’d like it to go down to 24C, that would be more pleasant but still hot enough. I’m just hoping that the first week in the school holidays is dry because we’re camping that week.
The weather isn’t helped with our tv viewing habits. We have no freeview signal in the mornings (of benefit because it means N’s tv viewing is severely limited), and nothing after 9-10pm. It seems others around the country are also impacted, although bizarrely the in laws who only live 30 metres or so from us, haven’t had an issue with theirs. We’ve been told it’s the unusually stable high pressure. So we could be having more interruptions until the hot weather is over. Joy.
Work’s been busy, but this week has seen a few successes for N. He had a great school report – saying he’s kind natured, focused and keen to do well. He’s also shown good progress over the year. You can’t ask much more than that,
Then he topped it off by finally doing his 25 metres on his front. He did the same distance on his back months ago, but that 25 metres has eluded him. It looked painful but he kept going. He added 50 metres on his back which we knew he’d have no problem with. Then at the end of the lesson he was asked if he wanted to try for 50 metres on his front. He nodded and off he went, pulling that out of the bag as well. So I had to buy him 2 badges in one go. Big achievement for him, and just shows how much his swimming has improved from that first struggle to get 10 metres unaided.
This week’s Project 52 / My Sunday Photo picture was of some barley fields I stopped to take photos of. The poppy field I was heading for has no poppies left.
