Sundays Update

Good Evening, I hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

Its been an active one around here we got up and went straight out for a run. It was just myself and my nine year old today, we normally run two lamp posts and then walk two lamp posts and repeat for twenty minutes but today we went for it we ran five lamp posts then walked two then ran three and walked two and repeated that for twenty minutes. From tomorrow we will have been running for two weeks so we are going to increase our time to twenty five minutes.

We decided after lunch to take the children swimming, we haven't been for a while so I wanted to see how they had improved after their school swimming lessons. We spent about three hours at the swimming pool, the children thoroughly enjoyed jumping in the deep end, doing forward rolls and handstands in the water as well as swimming and it was further exercise for me. Yay!

Update time:-

  • I have lost 2lb this week
  • We have run five times
  • The playroom has been tidied and cleaned
  • The downstairs toilet has been tidied and cleaned
  • Two of the windows in the conservatory have been cleaned
  • Four kitchen cupboards have been cleaned
  •  Over the two weeks we have earned £85.00 towards my daughters school trip (I would have liked to have reached the £100.00 mark really but it just means we will have to work harder next week)

    1. Hi Susan, It can't be all work and no play else it'll make Tara a dull girl. Haha. Truly though I don't do as much fun things in the holidays as I would like wit the kids Susan but everything is so expensive these days.
      Fingers crossed that I make more money, I don't like owing money xxx
