Project 365 2019 Week 40 Day 272 – 278
Sunday 29th September – Day 272
We spent the day with Mum and Dad and my brother and his family. After brunch and watching the Grand Prix we all headed out to watch my nephew play in an under 20’s football match. This shot was taken before it hammered down with rain. Thankfully we had waterproof coats to share around to keep everyone dry.
Monday 30th September – Day 273
A two job day for me and then I picked my parents up from the train station. We went to meet my son from school and he couldn’t wait to introduce them to his best friend. He’d been so excited to spend some time with them at our house and show Gramps what he’s done with his Hornby model railway. I took a step back to cook dinner whilst he enjoyed time alone with his grandparents.
We wouldn’t see them again before they fly back to Spain on Wednesday and I’m not sure when we’ll see them again.
Tuesday 1st October – Day 274
A frustrating workday trying to get equipment working correctly but I feel like I’m getting to grips with my second job more now. I wish the same could be said for blog work, there aren’t enough hours in the day any more, and I’m too tired in the evenings to switch my laptop back on.
This was the view on the walk to school in the afternoon. We just got home before the heavens opened and the thunder and lightning began. If only we hadn’t had to go back out to take Brewster for his post-dental op check up! Thankfully he got the all-clear, but we were all glad to get back home again.
Wednesday 2nd October – Day 275
I worked in the morning and it wasn’t until I was sat at the hairdressers and looked in the mirror that I realised I wasn’t wearing mascara or eyeliner! Two things I never leave home without putting on.
Thursday 3rd October – Day 276
The fact that this was the only photo I took all day, sums the day up really. It was freezing, laptop and printer frustrations with work and the day was topped off by a visit to our ‘catchment’ secondary school, which we didn’t like at all. Maybe we will feel differently next year, but I came home feeling really concerned about the future for my son. I just don’t think that school is a good fit for my son at all, we much preferred the one that’s actually closer to us.
Friday 4th October – Day 277
The double act. Relations between Brewster and Paddington are thawing a little, although it’s still not perfect.
A double workday for me but a productive one. After school, we headed up to Banbury to pick up a bundle of Thorntons chocolates that I won from the local shopping centre there. My son was desperate for some new pj’s too so we killed two bird with one stone.
Saturday 5th October – Day 278
You all know that my son is a big fan of Cressida Cowell, so when I heard she would be at Cheltenham Festival after the release of the latest Wizards of Once book, I had to get tickets. We picked up Galina from Chez Maximka and her son on the way. We’ve not seen them for a number of years so it was nice to catch up. The weather was kind to us but I’ve managed to jam the glove box in my car so now I can’t access the power cable for my sat nav and the wheel nut chuck for the wheels (not useful when my brake discs and pads need to be looked at in a couple of weeks! More money will need to be wasted to break into the box – grrr!
