A Photo Every Hour - Sunday 19th April

This month's photo an hour challenge was chosen by Jane last month and fell on Sunday 19th April.

9am - A bit of morning reading before breakfast with a rather {ahem} intriguing character.
9am - reading in bed

10am - While breakfast was cooking (sausages and potato & cheese patty thingies) we made a morning tipple (tea for me and coffee for him).
10am - tea and coffee

11am - Breakfast over and done with and it was time to decide which bit of housework to do first. The weather outside looked nice but was darn windy!
11am - nice weather outside

12pm - I might, just possibly, have not actually cleaned my dressing table for a month or two. First job of the day then ended up being cleaning the bedrooms.
12pm - the state of my dressing table

1pm - Cleaning was my job but Andrew's was shimmying up a ladder and fitting a burglar alarm box to the side of the house.
1pm - Andrew outside doing DIY

2pm - Bedrooms cleaned and it was on to the bathrooms (never a nice job really).
2pm - bathroom cleaning

3pm - The in-laws popped round to see how Andrew was getting on and we stopped for tea and biscuits, meaning that I missed the 3pm slot by about 45 minutes!
3pm - tea and biscuits

4pm - More washing, more cleaning.
4pm - washing

5pm - Time to stop for a bit and browse t'interweb.
5pm - blog reading

6pm - Andrew pulled me outside to see the result of all his hard work!
6pm - burglar alarm box mounted

7pm - Then it was on to dinner, checking on the potatoes we'd chucked in the oven a bit earlier.
7pm - roast potatoes

8pm - Roast chicken and all the veg for dinner with plenty of gravy, of course.
8pm - roast chicken dinner

9pm - More food but this time putting together our packed lunches for Monday (cheese sandwiches and a hot cross bun).
9pm - making sandwiches for lunch

10pm - And to bed, catching up with Portillo's State Secrets on BBC's iPlayer (although the episode about Jack the Ripper probably wasn't quite the best choice just before bedtime...).
10pm - watching Portillo's State Secrets in bed

Next month I'm going to go with Saturday 23rd May - it's the Bank Holiday weekend so I thought that might a good date to pick. Pop it in your diaries and I'll also tweet everyone the day before as a reminder - see you then!
Also, check out what I was up to in...


  1. I was intrigued by that novel - in many ways I had hoped to reallylove it but then I think it started to grate on me!

  2. Is that 'Look Who's Back' you're reading? I'll be interested to hear what you thought of it when you finish reading it; I've heard mixed reviews on it.

    You had a busy day on Sunday! I love your choice of date for next time .. I'll be on day one of a photography workshop in Anglesey so hopefully will have a bit more scope for some interesting photos.

  3. I think I already said, but I've still to write up my photo-an-hour post. The plan is always to publish them on Mondays but as it was a Sunday one, I didn't get a chance to put it together on Sunday haha!

    I do hate deciding to clean the bathroom but I do find it the most rewarding looking room after it has been cleaned though!

  4. OOoh, I loved your day! You made even CLEANING look interesting!!!x

  5. You are so good doing all that cleaning....and cooking too. Looking forward to the next one!

  6. I had to work for most of the day so I didn't join in this time around. Nobody wants to see identical pictures of a computer screen.
    I like your 3pm shot. Yum.
    Hope to join you next time :)

  7. I love it can I join in next time? x

  8. I've joined in! My blog post is going live tomorrow :) Looks like a typical Sunday to me- mine involved cleaning and cooking too!!! x

  9. I love having a nosey at these posts - so intriguing to see what a typical day in the life of another blogger looks like!


  10. That photo of potatoes is making me really hungry! I have the Hitler book on my to read list, just waiting for my library reservation to arrive, so I'll be interested to see what you thought of it.
