It was a cold, cold morning at rugby today. My girl got very frustrated having to hang around for nearly two hours watching her brother. My boy got very frustrated with himself for not being good enough - even though he scored a try.
A sunny, cold walk to school and I noticed an increase in activity at the end of the lane where a housing development is going up very soon.
It was cold, it was wet and it was long run day. Today I ran 12 miles - my final long run before the Bath Half. I was happy with my run; good pace, strong legs and on track for that 2 hour finish! At the end of 12 miles I needed to have a cool down walk so wandered along to the end of the lane where the rain was dripping off the hedgerow.
Back to work Wednesday and the drive in included rain, hail, thunder and lightening. I sat in the car for a while before it eased off.
A bit of bedtime reading tonight!
The end of a good week so Friday became the day for the first Creme Egg of the year!
Today saw the turning of a page in the parenting journal when I let my girl go to town by herself with a friend. Armed with her purse and bag, and with instructions to not spend all the money on sweets, off she went without a backward glance whilst I gulped and had tea with my friend and squeezed my boy a bit tighter. We then walked through town but never saw her. All was fine; she got lunch at the Sainsbury's cafe and also bought me something for tomorrow - and obviously a load of sweets!
