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!

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 26th August

August's photo an hour day fell on the Saturday of the Bank Holiday weekend - we were camping at our usual August steam rally, the Great Dorset Steam Fair.


Here's what the day looked like...

8am - Starting the day with 'Something Special' (whilst we get breakfast organised).


9am - Caravan brekkie.


10am - Remnants of breakfast (beans and toast were a hit).


11am - View from our caravan window (the stripey tent is the back of the Circus of Horrors freak show - we camp in amongst the freaks! Also - their description of themselves, not mine :-) )


12pm - Taking a look round the engines and fairground.


1pm - It was hot!


2pm - Managed to find some dairy-free cake which I snaffled while she was sleeping.


3pm - Trying to find some shade.


4pm - Round the ring in Andrew's lorry, waving and shouting "arro" to all the spectators.


5pm - Off for a wander.


6pm - Waiting for the food to be cooked!


7pm - Dinnertime mess.


8pm - Evening lights.


9pm - Up late for a spin on the gallopers...

Let me know if you took part and I've missed you from the list - it was easy enough to check Instagram and blogs to see who did photo an hour that month, but a lot more difficult to go back two months on Twitter!

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 23rd September

September's photo an hour day was Saturday 23rd, a busy day with family meals, fundraising film events and a carnival in the evening.

Here's what the day looked like...


9am - New favourite TV programme.


10am - Time to tidy up the carnage.


11am - Shower time.


12pm - Out on the road to a local pub for a family meal.


1pm - Waiting for food!


2pm - Someone decided they were too tired for lunch...


3pm - Now playing catch up with lunch (munching on chips) whilst watching Moana at a charity film event.


4pm - I've said it before but it's true, kids really do get all the best clothes.


5pm - The usual cup of tea about this time.


6pm - Off out again, on the way to Frome for the carnival procession.


7pm - First thing in pretty much every carnival procession is a fire engine (also, spot the sort of symmetry in the picture)


8pm - Popping to the shop for a few bits and pieces after the procession.


9pm - And off to bed (which apparently you can't do unless you have one boot on and one boot off)



Jane did the round up for September and also chose October's date - which I blogged about yesterday!

A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 28th October

So what happened to summer then? Or even the beginning of autumn? How is it November tomorrow? I have a feeling I was asking the very same questions this time last year.

In the meantime I appear to have missed blogging about a third of a year of photo an hours. Time to play catch up methinks!

So let's start with the most recent day, October's photo an hour...


8am - After a late night out eyeing up exciting things in Ikea, the little one slept in her clothes...creating some excellent bed hair overnight.


9am - Breakfast.


10am - Heading out to a craft workshop.


11am - About to start the crafting...


12pm - And Christmas card designs complete!


1pm - Sorting out some Christmas presents (the beginnings of story sacks and a rhyme box) while Lily's having a nap.


2pm - Snack time.


3pm and 4pm - Attended a geocaching event in a nearby town in an incredibly pretty old church with excellent chocolate cake and a great little indoor kids playground. Did I actually remember to take any photos, blogger-cliche ones or otherwise? Of course not.


5pm - On our way again, from the geocaching event to a town about 5 miles away to watch a carnival.


6pm - Queuing up with the rest of the world in the one sole chip shop in the town centre.


7pm - Waiting for the carnival to start and enjoying some chips!


8pm - Spend the carnival procession taking shots on an actual camera and forgot to take any on my phone.


9pm - Homeward bound.


10pm - While Lily's asleep, it's time to catch up on some TV!
