A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 20th June

I'm a week late with this month's photo an hour post (and a whole month late with May's but we won't go there...) - I meant to have this published last Tuesday!

Anyway, the short story is for July's photo an hour date I've chosen Saturday 18th July - let's hope the mini heatwave lasts til then and we can have lots of sunny beach and BBQ themed pictures!

The long story is here's how my day panned out...

9am - It was Andrew's turn to cook breakfast and he didn't do too badly.

10am - Andrew had taken the lorry out to a local event but I stayed home for a bit and tried to get on with sorting out the 136 dresses I'd dug out of my wardrobe.

11am - Time for a spot of tea and cake.

12pm - I remembered that I still hadn't unpacked the previous night's American candy bargains from B&M.

1pm - Off to catch the bus to the other side of town to meet Andrew for lunch.

2pm - Andrew had taken his lorry to the local heritage railway station and they'd laid on a vintage-style lunch in their buffet carriage.

3pm - Off for a walk around the station.

4pm - Still at the station with Andrew's lorry, watching the last few punters drift away.

5pm - I was back home and started undoing the cards for both my dad and Andrew's dad ready for father's day on the Sunday.

6pm - The current project was this little stuffed dog which came free as a kit on the cover of Knit Now magazine.

7pm - Still knitting but the wool's getting a bit tangled.

8pm - Gave up with the knitting to take the new car out for a spin in the lovely evening light.

9pm - Andrew's choice of driving music!

10pm - Back home and everyone needs a bit of Gavin and Stacey before bed!

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


  1. How do you take part in it? I do my Photo an Hour posts monthly, but I had no idea there is a link up going on around the community. Btw, your day seems really cool!

  2. Right, definitely, one hundred percent, doing this next month. Probably.
    And 136 dresses? Someone has a little problem no?

  3. Next months date is perfect! I'm meeting a blogger friend so that will be fun to take photos of (and easy to forget about...)

  4. A busy day. The vintage lunch looks yummy. How many dresses?!

  5. 136 dresses?! You really are a duck in a dress! :)

  6. I missed it again- ooops. Sadly I was in the lab all day so it would have been very boring. You lunch looks epic :) And 136 dresses?! I don't think I own even close to 100 items of clothing!!!

  7. I always love your photos, because you seem to pack so much into your weekends! I agree with all the other comments though - 136 dresses is probably verging on an obsession!

  8. The 18th July is a great day! In my diary!
