365 #7 {Achievements}

It was a mixed week of frustration and personal achievements. The weather obviously being a constant frustration for everyone and some goals achieved for myself and the boy...

Day 40
Another miserable day weather wise. The husband was at work so we pulled out a selection of games. I thought Frustration was particularly apt today.
Day 41
Team Honk Relay day! Today the leg came to Bristol and I was proud to be a part of it. Click here for my post on the day.
Day 42
The sun came out for a bit today so I ventured out into the garden to feed the chooks. I felt guilty as they started clucking away at me from the confines of their chicken jail. We have had to batten down the hatches thanks to Agnes' constant escaping and for a short term fix they have lost the luxury of the garden for a while.
Day 43
Finally, I get to leave work in daylight. Just.
Day 44
Addicted to this book - The Sleeper by Emily Barr.
Day 45
Valentine's Day - Tulips and Butcombe. Who said romance is dead?
Day 46
Success in the pool for the boy who has finally ditched the armbands!
Linking up, as always, to The Boy and Me...
