Saturday brought with it February’s Photo an Hour. I had no plans when I suggested the date, and I ended up spending some time with my sister and sister-in-law, helping them with a project they have underway. Other than that, it was a usual Saturday; books, radio, food and baths!
9am ~ I woke up earlier than this, but I dozed for a bit, while Radio 4 played in the background. By 9am, I was awake and reading. (How to Read a Girl by Caitlin Moran, if you’re interested. I’m fairly ambivalent about it so far.)
10am ~ I thought I had to have a quick bath, because Kim and Frances were coming to pick me up, but when they texted to say they were running late, I had a longer soak! You just can’t beat a bubble bath.
11am ~ Last week I ordered this Back to the Future t-shire online, and I love it for two reasons. Firstly, it’s a movie tee without being a big logo, and I love a bit of subtlety (or subtle-tee). Secondly, it has my birthday on it! The Enchantment Under the Sea dance takes place on 12th November, 1955. It’s my new favourite piece of clothing.
12pm ~ When the weather is nice, I spend a fair amount of time at the prom in Maldon, and the sun was shining on Saturday, so I headed over there for a while with Kim and Frances. The sun was out, but sadly it’s a February sun, and not a July sun, so it was freezing!
1pm ~ We headed into town for a spot of lunch. I went for a chicken salad sandwich, and it was very nice indeed!
2pm ~ I’ve been on my own all weekend, so that means being responsible for feeding myself. I’m usually pretty lazy about doing so, so I was looking for inspiration in Marks and Spencer. I didn’t really find any – I came out with a loaf of bread.
3pm ~ The project I was helping Kim and Frances with involved a camera, so I had borrowed my dad’s for the day. Kim was also doing photo an hour, but she was on the half hour rather than the hour, so I had to keep reminding her that it was time to take her photo, but I kept forgetting mine!
4pm ~ Time for tea! As Janet said, four o’clock hit, and a lot of the photos started featuring tea cups! These are my sister’s cannisters, and very cool they are too.
5pm ~ On the way home.
6pm ~ I spent a large part of the weekend doing a jigsaw puzzle, when I should have been doing a hundred other things. You can’t beat a jigsaw puzzle though. On Sunday morning, I put on Bob Harris’ show from the night before, and had a jolly lovely time listening to some fabulous music and doing my puzzle.
7pm ~ I love The Voice, but this week marked the end of the blind auditions, and from now on in, my attention starts to wane. It’s a lot less interesting to me once they get into the Battles and the Knock Outs and whatever comes next. The spinny chair bit is definitely the best.
8pm ~ Probably the least interesting photo ever, but I was struggling to think of something to capture! I had to drag the uplighter in from the other room to continue with my puzzle, because once the sun goes down, the light is terrible (modern light bulbs might help save the planet, but they are rubbish at illuminating a room!).
9pm ~ Another bubble bath! Completely unnecessary, but I do love them, and if I’m going to sit around and read my book,I always think that I might as well do it in the bath!
10pm ~ Time for a before-bed treat. I found this Toffee Treat Kit Kat in the local shop, and as it was only 39p, I thought I’d give it a go. I wasn’t expecting it to be a different colour from usual, but it was fairly tasty. My favourites are the dark ones though.
So there you have it, a not very interesting day in the life of Jane! I’m not sure I’ll ever get bored of doing Photo an Hour posts – I love looking back on them and seeing what I have been up to! It’s Louisa’s turn to round things up and pick a new date this month, so waddle on over to her blog and take a look, she’ll be setting a date for March.
