A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 17th February

Not entirely sure how it's almost March and this is the first blog post of 2018 (well, obviously I do know - it's the standard 'life gets in the way' situation) but anyway, let's press on and take a look at February's photo an hour.


Here's what the day looked like...


9am - Counting the "bikkits" on the duvet cover.


10am - Ready for breakfast to be served.


11am - Ready to go out despite not actually going anywhere til 1pm... (and the background, the adult playing with the kids toys #standard)


12pm - Sorting out outgrown clothes.


1pm - Off out and about with the grandparents.


2pm - More sorting out (the next day we were having a stall at a secondhand baby stuff sale)


3pm, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm  - Were all spent knee-deep in clothes and toys getting ready for the sale!


7pm - Putting together the float and labelling everything.


8pm - Little person still out so I get to have a shower in peace *and* on my own.


9pm - The wanderer returns (and still with lots of energy although the energy ran out by 9.45pm!)

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 18th November

November's photo an hour day fell (as it does almost every year) on a carnival day down here in Somerset. We were off to Glastonbury carnival that evening!


Here's what the day looked like...


9am - In our house, trains are "go go's"


10am - Tupperware sorting is an essential part of any morning.


11am - Prepping for redecorating the hallway.


12pm - Book repairing.


1pm - Boring picture alert!


2pm - Top of the (thankfully unlit) fireplace is apparently a good storage location.


3pm - Three pairs of socks and thermal leggings for the carnival.


4pm - Parked up and ready to kill some time before the procession in Glastonbury.


5pm - It's a bit soggy...


6pm - Still raining...


7pm - The carnival still takes place, whatever the weather!


8pm - Still damp!


9pm - Back to the car after the procession (where we were watching, the carnival had finished but where the car was parked, it was still going past!)


10pm - And homeward bound...



Jane set the December date as Saturday 16th - you can find the round-up for that day here :-)

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 16th December

Behind again with blog posts and photo an hour... What on earth does the year think its doing going by so fast? Anyway, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are planning a fab New Year :-)

December's festive photo an hour date fell on Saturday 16th - we were off to the theatre and to see Father Christmas!


Here's what the day looked like...


9am - It was a hat-wearing sort of day apparently.


10am - Putting pen to paper on the sacred Christmas issue of the Radio Times.


11am - Sorting out Christmas presents.


12pm - On our way out to Bristol to the theatre.


1pm - A sunny Bristol sky!


2pm - Waiting for our lift home after a brilliant performance of 'Ice Ice Baby' (Bristol Old Vic's Christmas show for under 3's)


3pm - Trying to find orange coloured decorations for our rainbow-themed Christmas tree!


4pm - On our way to find Father Christmas.


5pm - Taking Lily back to the fertility clinic where she was created to drop off a Christmas present and also visit their Santa's Grotto (where our consultant was playing the big man!)


6pm - Home for a cup of tea via the shops where we managed to pick up some 30p dairy-free custard doughnuts! #win


7pm - Nursery rhymes before (what we hoped was) bedtime...


8pm onwards there were no pics as someone didn't want to play ball going to sleep! All my photos would've been of a darkened room with a toddler stumbling round trying to find toys to play with...

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 15th July

And the final photo an hour catch up, July's date was Saturday 15th.


Here's what the day looked like...


11am - Starting the day a bit later with a lie in.


12pm - Playing about with attempting to redesign and revive our local NCT newsletter (don't worry, we didn't use this design - you can see the final version here)


1pm - Tidying...


2pm - Dinner prep for a slow cooker meal later on.


3pm - Look who's back after visiting the grandparents!


4pm - And then time for a nap.


5pm - Getting ready for a toddler-free night out at the theatre (to see one of my favorite shows, for umm...the 14th time. Believe me though, it's worth it - I wrote about how good it is a few years ago too).


6pm - Date night at McDonalds (#keepingitclassy)


7pm - And off to the theatre we go (and yup, we had tickets for all the shows advertised on the poster...)


8pm - Interval...


9pm - And even after seeing the show so many times, it still brings tears to my eyes.


10pm - And homeward we go.



It was Jane's turn to do the round up that month and for August, she chose the Saturday of the Bank Holiday weekend - which you can read all about here!
