Lord Mayor’s Show


    BEDN ~ Photo an Hour #4 ~ November 2013

    Today’s post is actually answering Friday’s prompt, A Day in the Life. I had planned a photo an hour for Saturday, asking people to join in with me like last time, and it turned out to be ideal for the prompt.

    Apologies for the quality of some of the photos; for reason I used my phone for some of them and it really shows!

    8am ~ On my way with my dad and sister to pick up my other sister. We were driving to get the train to London.

    9pm ~ A hot chocolate on the platform which wasn’t ludicrously overpriced. What a novelty.

    10pm ~ We were a bit early, so we nipped into Westfield. Being early, it was still bearable. You would never catch me in there on a Saturday afternoon!

    11pm ~ Sarah had to go into Sainsbury’s to buy something in order to get a plastic bag to replace her paper Primark bag, because it had started raining in earnest! She decided on cookies, and we all partook.

    12pm ~ The reason for our trip to London was to see the Lord Mayor’s Show (I’ll be blogging about it later in the week). This robot was made of wheelie bins, and moved slightly ominously!

    1pm ~ After the parade, we went to a little restaurant near Covent Garden for some lunch. There were some pretty lanterns on the wall!

    2pm ~ Fish and chips for lunch. Rather yummy!

    3pm ~ After a quick look around Covent Garden, it was time to head home, so back to the tube we went.

    4pm ~ Back in the car (this feels a bit like We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!).

    5pm ~ My sister bought me some tights in Primark, so I got them out for a look when I got home. I honestly believe they may be the best tights ever.

    6pm ~ Back in May, I went to see an episode of Pointless Celebrities being filmed. The episode finally aired last night, and I spotted myself in the audience!

    7pm ~ My friend Vicky came to say and I had to meet her off the train, so I snapped a shot of a wall at the train station.

    8pm ~ Going for a couple of drinks at the pub means that I have to reapply some makeup after a day in London.

    9pm ~ Ready to go to the pub (after a couple of glasses of wine first, of course!).

    That was a pretty long day! I am also really pleased that people decided to join in with my Photo an Hour again. I know that I am not the only blogger to do it, but I know that people like to join in and I think they appreciate the reminder!

    I’m thinking about adding a Photo an Hour goal to my forthcoming 32 Before 32 list, and making it a monthly thing. I haven’t decided for sure yet, but I am definitely going to be doing one in December, and I decided to pick Saturday 14th December as the day. Let me know if you are joining in again!
