This was a busy weekend, according to Instagram. I was apparently slightly hungover on this particular Photo an Hour day, though I can’t for the life of me remember where I had been the night before. I rarely drink anything, never mind enough to feel hungover, so it should be much easier to remember! The day itself saw me meeting up with my best friends for dinner, and then the following day I saw my great-niece for her first birthday. Weekends like that are nice, but I’m sure I needed some sort of lay down on Sunday evening to get over all the socialising.
7am | Up early, despite this apparent night out the previous evening. I still can’t work out where I could possibly have been.
8am | McDonalds for breakfast, because Hannah, who I live with, is the nicest person in the world and went out to get it.
9am | Back to bed, for some reading.
10am | Sometimes I’m just in the mood for some show tunes. More specifically, sometimes I am just in the mood to sing Defying Gravity as loudly as I possibly can and pretend that I sound just like Idina Menzel.
11am | We parked next to this HILARIOUS van.
12pm | To the shops, and in an attempt to ensure that I didn’t spend any money, I stuck mainly to shops I couldn’t afford, rather than those I can afford. I would never be tempted to spend the likes of £26 on a top, as nice as that white and blue stripey one is.
1pm | A quick stop at M&S, and I took the chance to pick up a bottle of Sparkling Florida Orange, because it’s delicious.
2pm | Back to bed, with chocolate and a book.
4pm | Shockingly, having laid down on my bed, with my book, nursing a bit of a hangover, I fell asleep and missed the 3pm photo. By 4pm I was awake and about to paint my nails.
5pm | Attempting to tame my hair with the best tools I have. (Actually, that comb has seen better days.)
6pm | Off out, with Jen and Hannah, to meet with the rest of the gang for food.
7pm | Trying to decide on said food.
8pm | I so rarely have dessert in restaurants. This might be hard to believe – I do not look like the sort of person who turns down food – but it’s true. I don’t know why; probably because I so often over-indulge on a main course.
9pm | But I went for one this time, and was treated this. I don’t remember for certain, but I’m sure I felt sick after this.
10pm | Yeah, I’m the loser who nearly always forgets to count their photos and make sure they end up with an even number so this doesn’t happen. It’s not even a good photo…
As you can see, your day doesn’t have to be scintillating for you to join in with Photo an Hour. Sometimes it’s the more mundane days that make for the more interesting photos (not sure this is the case this time, however…)
Our date for this month is Saturday 26th August (Bank Holiday weekend!), and if you sign up for a reminder email (in the sidebar on the right of this page), I’ll do my best to remember to send it. More details about Photo an Hour can be found here, and all my previous Photo an Hour posts can be found here.
