Photo An Hour – August 18th 2018

19 Aug

Yesterday I took part in August’s Photo An Hour. This is a small challenge in which you try to take a photo every hour to record your day. I tend to find these days are my most productive because I want the documentation of my day to be interesting!

Here is what I got up to yesterday:

7am: Good morning world!

8am: Even though I’ve got quite a bit to do today, I’m going to do some reading. Starting this book today after finishing one last night

9am: DIY time

10am: Waiting for the second coat to dry before touching up the paintwork

11am: Painting and jobs done so it’s time for a shower

12pm: Cuppa soup for lunch

1pm: I love that our new apartment has a washing machine

2pm: Done the shopping

3pm: Washing almost dry

4pm: Finally getting started on some short story ideas

5pm: Made a game to help me learn German Modalverben. Might have to go on Dragons’ Den with this one!

6pm: Making dinner

7pm: Dinner time with newly painted table

8pm: Refreshments for film watching are ready!

9pm: Halfway through a film! My last post for the night.

Photo an Hour: 28th April 2018

29 Apr

I have missed the last two Photo An Hour days because I was on holiday in South America. For the February edition, I actually landed in Buenos Aires at 6am and was so excited to be there that I completely forgot. For the March edition, I think we were transferring from one country to another which possibly wouldn’t be so interesting to photograph.

Now back in Switzerland with no distractions and a few helpful reminders on my phone, here is what I got up to on 28th April 2018.

7am: it’s early and it’s quiet so I decide to read some more of my book. I’m reading Crime by Irvine Welsh at the moment.

8am: Making a spot of breakfast: on the left scrambled eggs for him, on the right a vegan “scrambled egg” made from tofu, turmeric, chilli and coriander

9am: It looks like the weather will be nice today

10am: Writing a few posts for my blog

11am: Time for German homework

12pm: Snack time

1pm: Forgot to put the dishwasher on this morning!

2pm: Decided to label all the jars we have in the cupboard so we know what is in what, especially with the different types of flour

3pm: Someone (not me!) has fallen asleep so I will go back to doing some reading

4pm: Time to use the one gadget I have bought this year and go for a run

5pm: Back from run looking like a beetroot but need to do my exercises for my knee

6pm: Homemade dips to have with our grilled vegetables later

7pm: The sun has gone in but the BBQ is ready! All homemade apart from the bread!

8pm: We are watching The Godfather

9pm: We are still watching The Godfather

10pm: Time to write my diary before going to bed
