I am so behind with Photo an Hour! These photos that you are about to see come from May, which means I have three to post before I am up to date! A part of me just wants to start again, and forget the ones I’ve missed, but I like having them to look back on, even when the days are as mundane as this one turned out to be!
I took part in May’s photo an hour three days after everyone else, because I was at a work event, which basically involved a lot of sitting in one place. And when I was taking photos, it was for my work’s social media, so fitting in Photo an Hour photos just wasn’t feasible. So my plan was to do it on the Monday, when I had a day off, and then I forgot. I ended up doing it on the Tuesday, when I was travelling back from an overnight stay in London.
9am ~ Looking out of my hotel window; I was staying at a Travelodge near Kings Cross (I think). I went to May’s Mark Kermode in 3D, and as I was off for two days following our work event, I took advantage and booked a hotel.
10am ~ Time for a sophisticated breakfast.
11am ~ On the way home, I popped into Westfield at Stratford. It’s not my favourite place in the world, but mid-morning during the week is an acceptable time to visit, as there’s hardly anyone around.
12pm ~ Waiting for a train home at Stratford.
1pm ~ Home, and feeling entirely exhausted, if I remember rightly.
2pm ~ Time for some lunch.
3pm ~ Attempting a nap, but actually getting drawn into a Den of Geek article that had me adding lots (and lots) of books to my to-read list.
5pm ~ I lost an hour somewhere, and I don’t think it’s because I had a nap. I think it’s because doing Photo an Hour on a Tuesday didn’t come naturally, and I kept forgetting! I was reading by this point – still not napping.
6pm ~ To demonstrate just how long ago this was (as though a calendar can’t do that), this is what we were watching on the television – Britain’s Got Talent. I have a feeling that we were catching up on a recorded live show from the weekend.
8pm ~ And finally, with another hour missed out, a Tuesday night cider and a blanket.
I’m going to try really hard to round up everyone that joined in, but as may be apparent, I’m a tad disorganised at the moment.
