I’m not going to start this post bemoaning the fact that I am never up to date with anything – it just gets boring!
February’s Photo an Hour took place on Saturday the 18th, a day on which I had no real plans. This is often the way with a Saturday; they just end up involving pottering around and spending too much money.
8am | Reading in bed. The best days start like this.
9am | My huge mug filled with tea.
10am | Saturday mornings are invariably soundtracked by these two. (Some time I’m going to count up how many times they’ve appeared in my Photo an Hour posts!)
11am | Off out wearing a scarf my friend V bought me for my birthday (it’s a map of Manhattan). I look very orange in the photo, but my make-up tastes don’t lie that way, so I think it was a trick of the light.
12pm | A vegan burger in a cafe in Sudbury called Kind Cuisine.
1pm | Charity shopping; Sudbury has some good ones.
2pm | Heading home, and marvelling at the blue skies and sunshine that have since taken over our weather in recent weeks.
3pm | Home from the shops and admiring my bargain of a dress that went on to be worn at my friend’s wedding. £10 for a Billie and Blossom dress in Dorothy Perkins was very welcome.
4pm | Reading again, with athletics on in the background.
5pm | My friend Hannah was dog-sitting on this weekend, so she went and picked up Scooby and brought her back to ours for the evening.
6pm | The sunshine and blue skies hadn’t translated to a warm house, so the fire was on and crappy Saturday night television was being watched.
7pm | Neapolitan ice cream – sophisticated? No. Tasty? But of course.
And that’s where I finished off. A fairly short (and not very interesting) Photo an Hour day in the end!
As ever, one of the joys of a Photo an Hour day is the company we keep – there’s now a sizable group of us who join in together on Instagram and Twitter and through blogs after the event (though not usually this long after). If you’d like to join in with the next one, we’ll be playing again on Saturday 22nd April. I send out a quick email reminder a couple of days in advance (when I remember), you can sign up for that here or via the form on the right hand side of this page.`
