Photo an Hour – 16th June 2018

28 Jun

I completely forgot to blog about taking part in the June Photo an Hour. If you are not familiar with the concept, you take a picture every hour on a particular day and post it onto social media so that people can see what you’ve been up to.

It’s a fun thing to do and it means that I try to make sure I do something interesting on that day so I don’t take a picture of me every hour lying on the sofa and watching TV!

Here was what I got up to on Saturday 16th June:

7am: Rise and shine! It’s time to go running before it gets too hot and my body wakes up!

8am: Refuelling on the balcony

9am: Finishing one of the books I bought yesterday

10am: German homework time

11am: I’m beginning to think that German learning will never end

12pm: Booking flights

1pm: I’ve done the “big” shop for the week

2pm: My boyfriend has gone to his French exam so I am making a vegan cake because he’s not here to tell me I’m not allowed to

3pm: Watching a bit of the World Cup while my cake bakes and my sushi rice cools down

4pm: Vegan sushi making time

5pm: I’m on a roll – Chia Seed and Apricot Pudding for dessert!

6pm: Started reading this book that my boss gave to me

7pm: Asian inspired dinner on the balcony

8pm: Another project is afoot!

9pm: Writing my diary before I forget/fall asleep. This is my last photo for this #photoanhour. Goodnight all!

Photo an Hour: 20th January 2018

22 Jan

Last Saturday I took part in the first Photo an Hour of 2018. The idea is that you take a photo every hour for a day and published it on social media.

Like last time I have made a summary of the whole day for my blog. Here is what I got up to…

8am: Cuppa to start the day

9am: Catching up on some current affairs

10am: Going for a walk before the rain comes

11am: It’s colder out here than I thought it would be

12pm: Power smoothie for lunch

1pm: Shopping done

2pm: Ok so I went back to the supermarket because this was on offer and I didn’t have the car with me

3pm: I have finally fended off procrastination and I’m doing some writing

4pm: Writing was going nowhere fast so I’m doing some reading

5pm: Getting some dinner ready

6pm: Accident in the kitchen

7pm: Settling down for some television watching

8pm: Still sofa bound but now with hot drink

9pm: Last photo of the day – Writing in my diary

And that was my (fairly uneventful) 20th January 2018.

Photo an Hour

17 Dec

Yesterday I took part in my very first Photo an Hour. The basic premise is very simple. Once a month you take a photo an hour during your day and post this up on social media with the hashtag #photoaday. It means that you can check what other people are up to and is an interesting way to document a normal, or perhaps, a special day.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might remember that for 3 years I used to take a photo a day. I still get notifications on Facebook of what I was doing on this day 3 years ago. For a photo a day, you have to get creative because it is not always easy, especially with having a nine-to-five job, and the photos get a bit repetitive.

With photo a day, I must say that my day was a lot more productive than it was the previous Saturday. Last week, I was so tired and a bit ill from all the overtime that I have been doing at work, that I mainly sat in front of the TV, like a zombie all day. I certainly couldn’t post a photo every hour with me in a different position on the sofa.

So here is what I got up to on Saturday 16th December:

8am: Good Morning! Tea and Toast time!

9am: Time to confirm what the neighbours always suspected: I am both a borderline alcoholic and a very tardy recycler

10am: Shopping for Christmas wrapping paper and sparkly things

11am: UK Tax return time

12pm: Writing a few posts for my blog

1pm: As we won’t be having a Christmas tree this year, I’ve bought a poinsettia to make the place look a bit more Christmassy

2pm: After not feeling well all week, I am trying to get back into my training programme

3pm: Helping Santa by wrapping up presents for some special little people

4pm: I have finally got round to tidying all my German exercise books off the dining room table

5pm: I’m about to venture out in the cold and dark

6pm: Christmas Tree shopping (see 1pm, the tree wasn’t for me!)

7pm: Fonduestube

8pm: We are still going

9pm: On the way home

10pm: Full of cheese, exhausted and climbing into bed with this one. Night all!
