Project 365 2018 Week 21 Days 140 – 146
Sunday 20th May – Day 140
I spent most of the day wishing away the hours to be honest. I could not wait to pick up my son from Cub Camp. He’d had a great time, had forgotten to put sun cream of his ears, and was clearly shattered. If you’ve read my post earlier this week, you will know just how proud I am of him.
Of course he was grumpy when we got home, and nothing I could do would persuade him he was actually tired. But it was good to have him home, and to know that he’d made such a massive step forward.
Monday 21st May – Day 141
The duvet thief came back in the early hours. He’d come home from Cub Camp with a croaky voice and needed a bit of TLC. He was dead to the world when I woke up and I just knew he was going to struggle at school.
I warned his teacher that he might be a little overtired but by the end of the day he came bounding out of school with his usual energy levels intact.
Tuesday 22nd May – Day 142
I got treated to a magic show before breakfast, although he still hasn’t quite grasped the idea that he shouldn’t explain to his audience how he’s actually tricked us.
It was a lovely sunny day, and after dinner we decided to go for a walk around our estate. Of course it wasn’t long before he found a stick!
Wednesday 23rd May – Day 143
I’ve been struggling with a head cold all week and have been feeling pretty rubbish, so spent time not running around like a lunatic for a change. I tried our a neck massager I’d been sent for review and read a book. I really wanted to go to sleep but I’d had a text about a delivery that was due between 8.30-12 and my OH was asleep. Grrr, of course it didn’t arrive until 2.15 so I could have gone to bed after all.
After school we were catching up with the Spanish Grand Prix. I never seem to be around to watch any of them live or the highlights on the right day, these days. My son decided it was the perfect time to start his own race. I think the Ferrari may have done better in his race than it did in Barcelona.
Thursday 24th May – Day 144
We woke up to rain. Is summer over before it’s even begun. I had to dig out my boots and socks for the school walk, and even a warm coat!
I headed into college with my work for the photography exhibition which starts in South Street, Churchill Hospital, Oxford this Saturday for the next month. I left early, to come home and crash for a few hours. This cold needs to do one now, I’m shattered.
Friday 25th May – Day 145
The last day of term, and it may be raining and cold, but we’re still glad it’s here.
This morning my son’s best friend came round before school as normal, but with these lovely flowers for me, to say thank you for having him each morning. I might have cried. It’s lovely to be able to help his Mum out and to see the two boys together each morning.
Dentist for my son after school.
Saturday 26th May – Day 146
We’d had a long-standing date in the diary with my oldest friend who is also my son’s godmother. We normally meet up somewhere between us but my son had asked earlier in the week if he could show her around Stowe, his favourite place. What we didn’t know until we arrived is that it was Stowe School’s Speech Day and the gardens would be out-of-bounds. But actually it worked to our favour as we walked the circular 4 mile Park Walk instead, a first for all of us. The weather was much better than we’d expected too, it was lovely to visit a favourite place but see it from a totally different view-point. We’ve now found some more walks to try out in the future.
