Last June’s Photo an Hour day fell on the 18th, a day when I was travelling back to my home town to stay at my sister’s house. We’ve had nine Photos-an-Hour since then, so it seems mildly ridiculous to both to round it up now, but I’m going to.
9am ~ Starting things off in the most interesting way possible, with a photo of my washing. I miss being able to hang things on the line – I need warmer weather!
10am ~ The Instagram caption on this was ‘Shopping for gifts’, and I couldn’t remember who I was shopping for, given that I am always giving people presents months after their actual birthday. But it turns out that this was actually for my nephew who’d had a birthday a mere 12 days earlier.
11am ~ On the bus. Instagram leads me to believe that it was a very hot day.
1pm ~ Choosing a sandwich and lamenting the lack of options without tomatoes.
2pm ~ Shopping with my sister and brother-in-law. Or watching them shop. There’s something about the time that I spend with them that always makes me feel like a child, and I don’t know why really. Sarah is only fourteen years older than me, but I just think I’ve known them both as parents for so long, that they often feel parental to me, especially when we are out
4pm ~ Sitting in my sister’s garden; while she enjoys the sun, I have to sit under a parasol otherwise I’m a lobster within minutes.
5pm ~ My nephew got home from work and stripped down to his underwear immediately.
6pm ~ I popped to see my great-niece and watched her making her granddad read her a story.
7pm ~ Salad for dinner, because cooking in that heat (or expecting someone else to do it) is just unnecessary.
And that’s another Photo an Hour day rounded up! I don’t know how I get so behind, it really doesn’t take very long, and I do so love looking back on them. In case you’d like to play next time around, March day is set for Saturday 24th March. It’s really easy to join in, just take a photo each hour and upload it to Instagram using the hashtag, or save them for a blog post (or do both, like I try and fail to do in a timely manner).
