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