A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 17th October

October's Photo an Hour challenge fell on Saturday 17th October - the same day as Taunton carnival (although at this time of year, any Saturday will fall on a Carnival day) :-)

8am - Up early to get ready to head out to an NCT sale in Frome (we'd heard they could be a bit of a bunfight!)

9am - Just about to leave and our garden is beginning to look very autumnal.

10am - Inside the NCT sale and despite what we'd heard, it's rather well organised and very civilised!

11am - Back home and sorting out some of the bits and pieces we picked up at the sale (and just in case you missed it on Twitter, we found out a few weeks ago that Findus is apparently Findina) :-)

12pm - Dropping off some books at the library in Wells before catching the bus down to Taunton to mooch round the charity shops before the Carnival (Andrew was driving down later in the afternoon to join me).

1pm - On the bus, somewhere near Somerton, about halfway to Taunton.

2pm - Ready for charity shopping!

3pm - Just in case I'd forgotten why I (and everyone else) was there today...

4pm - Time for a stop off in Wetherspoons for a cuppa, a sit down and a toilet break.

5pm - Whilst waiting in Primark for Andrew to arrive, these babygro/vest thingies accidentally fell into my basket...

6pm - Back at the car and enjoying some dinner before heading out to find a spot to watch the procession.

7pm - Carnival selfie with me, Andrew and the brother.

8pm - The first of the large floats arrived passed us (if you hadn't guessed, this one is based on the film, Madagascar).

9pm - The last of the large floats (and the end of the procession), Harlequin Carnival Club with their entry based on Phileas Fogg's world tour.

10pm - About halfway home.

11pm - We left the sorting out til Sunday morning!

November's date will be Saturday 21st November - which falls on Glastonbury Carnival day, the last of the big Somerset processions for the year!

Also, check out what I was up to in...


  1. Wow!! What a cool day! I just have to make it to a carnival one day!!! Hurrah for Findina!!Xx

  2. Note to self: Think of something interesting to do for next months photo an hour ;)

    I can't remember the last time I went to a carnival, but I kind of want to after reading this post.

    1. Ha, like you'll ever be able to top this month's "casually slip in an engagement announcement"!

    2. Well if you ever fancy a trip over to Somerset, I have a spare bed in my house (and can offer tea and cake). Although you would have to put up with a screaming baby next year so the offer's probably not quite as attractive as it first sounds! (and Bev is right, a proposal is a pretty exciting 'photo an hour' event!) :-) xx

  3. It must be so amazing doing the carnival processions.Glad you are doing well. :) X

    1. Thanks lady - January seems to be getting scarily closer though! :-) xx

  4. I hadn't heard about Findina become a lady-baby! Congratulations all over again (and just imagine me saying that each and every day until she deems to grace the world with her marvellous presence. And then beyond, because we all know she's going to be bloomin' amazing) xxx

    1. P.S. Sorry- I realise that phrasing makes it sound like Findus somehow had an in-womb sex-change. Which is his (her) right, of course, but would be very weird.
      P.P.S. I haven't been drinking, I swear :)

    2. Haha, I do like the phrase 'lady-baby' though, that definitely made me smile! :-) xxx

  5. I absolutely love this idea! And will be joining you next month - I've just written it on my calendar!
    Looks like you had an amazing day!
