    Photo an Hour #42 ~ January 2017

    The unthinkable has happened. I have got up to date with Photo an Hour! The February date is set for this coming Saturday, and this is January’s round-up! Who can believe it? Now let’s see how long it takes me to get behind again…

    January’s day was Sunday 29th; Louisa chose a Sunday for a change as it was her little one’s first birthday. I had no great plans – I started the day at my best friend’s Anna’s house, having stayed over the night before, and then came home and did nothing. Prepare yourself for some scintillating photos!

    08 09

    8am – Breakfast at the Divalls.

    9am – Searching for something to take a photo of, I chanced upon these lovely canisters in Anna’s kitchen.

    10am ~ On the road; Anna and Rob dropped me home before going swimming. This interesting view is the A130

    11am ~ One of the best things about being away overnight is getting home to discover what the postman has brought you. On this particular day, it was a book that I’d bought from Amazon, to try and help me with meal planning, something at which I am terrible.

    12pm ~ Getting home early-ish after staying out all night is always good, particularly on a Sunday, because it means you have a whole day ahead of you. I had a whole day of doing nothing planned! But first, to the shop, to buy food to accompany my laziness.

    1pm ~ I have sort of decided to start watching Neighbours again. Except that since this day, when I watched a few, I haven’t done very well at keeping up. And as it’s on every day, this is a problem.

    4pm ~ At this point I had just woken up from a rather long nap! Tea, a blanket, and some blogging. I genuinely can’t think of many better ways to spend a cold Sunday afternoon.

    5pm ~ More blogging – trying to get up to date with my end of  month posts, which went rather well for a change as they all happened at the right time, rather than in the middle of the month!

    6pm ~ Incredibly, I was still writing blog posts. I must have been in a productive frame of mind, something that doesn’t happen too often. I was watching The Voice from the night before as well. Because I genuinely love the blind auditions so much.

    7pm ~ Oh look. It’s a photo of me uploading my photo an hour photos from the previous month, in a blog post about photo an hour. I think this post just swallowed itself whole.

    8pm ~ Because I’m stupid, I took a photo at 8 o’clock, instead of just leaving it, and now here we are with another odd number of photos. It was obviously too interesting not to take a photo of… Or not. I was looking at the Radio Times. I subscribe to it, so it comes through my door. I know that everyone thinks that TV listings magazines are redundant in this day and age, but I’m willing to explain, in detail, all the reasons why that’s wrong. If you’re interested.

    So that’s that. Can you believe that I am actually up to date? Now my plan is to have a round-up of each month up within a week of the actual day, and I should actually be able to do a proper round-up, and include links to the people who play!

    February’s Photo an Hour day is this weekend – Saturday 18th February. If you’d like a reminder as to when it will be taking place, please leave your email address here, and I’ll send you a reminder a couple of days in advance.
