We’re over halfway on this project! I’m really, really enjoying it so far. It has been a very ordinary week, some would say dull, but the beauty of Week In The Life with the rigmarole of regularly taking photos and notes of that day mean that even on days that I would normally see as mundane or quiet with not a lot happening I can see all the little bright things that actually make the day different. Even if I never get round to actually making an album of this week (although I really, really hope I do) it’s been so worthwhile blogging about it. I feel it’s made a difference in my photography too. Anyway, Thursday.
Everyone sleeps in a bit after the late night last night. It takes some persuading to get Betsy dressed. She definitely doesn’t want to go to nursery today, it’s apparently “boring” without her best friends Amy and Caspar there. Dave and co give me a lift to the Tube on the way to nursery. In the car Betsy is listening to the Puppini Sisters’ version of Mr Sandman (or the bum bum bum song as Boo calls it) and Arthur dances in his seat.
I get off at Leicester Square tube this morning and walk down through Trafalger Square and Whitehall. How lucky am I to get to walk past all this amazing history where people from all over the world come to see?
(love what’s been done to the scaffold around Banqueting House by the way)
Work is work. Lots and lots of barcoding today.
By the time we finish at four we have entered over 1000 tapes into the database, which is 1/40 of the amount that needs to be done!
I get home first, realise that I’ve not got anything prepared for dinner, shrug and make myself some tea and toast and write up the day in my WITL journal. We have beans on toast for dinner.
Just want to leave this photo of me and Dave getting ready for bed here. I think my most favourite pictures of us are the ones where we’re goofing around a little, and this one makes me smile a lot. This is definitely going in the album.
