Ten weeks done – #GetGoodSummer

So the 10 weeks of the #GetGoodSummer challenge end today.  I may have been totally rubbish at scheduling posts to join in, but I have a few successes to share.

1. Swimming a length

Regular readers will know that last Friday I swam my first length of the swimming pool, and I did it from the deep end.  More than I ever thought was possible, but I was so happy that I achieved it within the 10 weeks of this challenge.

2. Quality time with Monkey

We had a wonderful summer together and I missed him terribly yesterday when he started school.  He loved CBeebies Land, especially the Postman Pat ride.

Ten weeks done

We went to Charmouth and had a great time on the beach with Daddy P.

Ten weeks done

Had a wonderful time at Bucklebury Park Farm and Cotswold Farm Parks.

As well as a great day out at Lollibop 2014 – we’ve certainly made some memories this summer.

3. Cross stitch – Monkey’s Christmas Stocking.

I’ve cracked on with this, but it does take ages.  I’ve very nearly finished the main stitching now.  Then it’s a case of back stitching all the outlining, before I can finally stitch the actual stocking together.  I may be putting a shout out to borrow a sewing machine rather than hand stitching if I’m running out of time!

4. The Be Simply Great Challenge

I failed with the press ups and planks but in general I exercised well and have been eating healthily.

5. Memories photo album for Monkey

We now have an album and I have my computer back with all my photos on it.  I didn’t complete this before today, but it’s a project I’m going to finish whilst Monkey is at school.

So all in all I’m quite happy with the results of my #GetGoodSummer challenge.  How about you?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
