Photo An Hour - Feb 21st 2015

Sunday, February 22, 2015

6am - An early start - it was still flippin' dark outside - to bake some chocolate brownies for a clothes swap I'd organised. I'd completely forgotten all about it until about 10am Friday night. Talk about a panic!

7am - I had one batch of brownies on the cooling tray an another in the oven.

8am - Whilst I was rushing around getting ready. Tink was curled into a neat little ball, occasionally she'd look up at me and blink before returning to her snooze.

9am - I noticed this little fella under my truck as I was loading up, I moved him to a plant. By the time I got home, he'd gone so I'm hoping he made it.

10am - Set up and ready for the swap to begin.

11am - Feeling a little eleven o'clockish, I was on kitchen duty.

12pm - The Clothes Swap was starting to wind down, it was an OK turnout, not as busy as usual but we raised £128 which isn't far off what we normally raise so I'm happy with that.

1pm - The clothes swap finished, we had Krispy Kremes left. I resisted on account of my brownie breakfast but they smelled so good.

2pm - Arrived home to find several wedding RSVPs waiting for me. The best haul yet and the song requests are getting good! Some of my friends are yet to reply because they can't decide on a song, one saying 'this is harder than a pub quiz!'

3pm - After completing some designs I've been working on this week, I realised I hadn't had lunch. Houmous all the way.

4pm - Some wedding admin, made all the more enjoyable by the doodles of my bridesmaid.

5pm - A pot of tea, some menu planning and a Tesco grocery order. The recipe is Bloody Mary Beef, sounds good eh?

6pm - Relaxed for a while watching E4 before heading back upstairs to my office to do some work before supper.

7pm - Andy cooked us Smokey BBQ Fajitas

8pm - Watching TV with the cats.

9pm - Still watching TV - I needed a night of doing very little. We've started to watch Take Me Out. I have no idea why.

10pm - A cheeky glass of red before bed.

Thanks to Jane and Louisa for setting the dates for A Photo An Hour, pop over to their blogs and see what they got up to.

  1. I'm still a little traumatised by that butterfly photo, but managed to scroll down pretty quickly to get it out of sight!

    That's a massively long day - I thought I was doing well being awake at 9am :)

    Love the idea of having song requests in with the RSVPs. I'm now sat here wondering what I would be my choice - will keep me busy for the rest of the day.

    1. I must remember that you don't like butterflies and Sophie doesn't like feet.

      Let me know what song choice you come up with.

  2. What a busy day you had, can I put a song request in for Love Shack it's my all time favourite song.

  3. I love posts like this, I really fancy a doughnut now! x

  4. Wow, those are some good song choices, your friends have excellent taste! Also, a 6am start on a weekend? Ouch.

    1. Ouch indeed!
      I'm waiting for my Mum's song choice, no doubt it'll throw a spanner in the works ;-)

  5. Such a cool post- I love the random things you did- poor butterfly- hope he DID make it! xx

    1. It was a bit of a random day but I love days like this

  6. What a grand day. I've stupidly agreed to provide a cake stall for the allotment AGM on Sunday when I have absolutely no time to bake this week. Also, could you give me some tips on how to organise a clothes swap? The Rangers are desperate to run one as a fundraiser for camp, but I';m not sure how to administer it. How do you make it fair?

    1. Will tweet you a link to a post I did a while ago

  7. Isn't it so fun to come home to RSVPs? I love that you have song requests!

  8. You make me feel guilty - my photo a day started at 10am.

  9. Yes! I love Take Me Out! I have no idea why since it's dreadful but I hate to miss it ;) a clothes swap morning sounds fun, hopefully you managed to get some goodies :)

  10. Yay, thanks for taking part! I agree with Janet, your guests clearly have excellent musical taste! Saturday 21st March will be the next photo an hour - see you then! :-) xx

  11. I hope your little butterfly friend turned out okay, seems to be very early for him to be out and about! I have a weakness for Krispy Kreme too, once I smell that doughnut smell, i'm a goner and gotta get my fix in!
