A Photo an Hour: 21 February 2015

Yesterday I took part in A Photo an Hour, hosted by Jane from Is That You Darling? and Louisa from Duck in a Dress. Here are the results of my efforts.

11 a.m. A late start to the morning (but in my defence, I’d had a looong day the day before… and a long week for that matter!). First things first: a cup of tea is needed!

12 noon Doing a bit of cross stitch (actually, at this point I was unpicking. Yes, I messed up right at the beginning and had to start over)

1 p.m. A spot of lunch (brunch?) while looking for even more flat adverts to respond to. Jan took the tablet while I was fetching my camera and then wouldn’t give it back to me, so instead of a real estate website, you get a photo of my empty plate.

2 p.m. Wrapping a new home gift for a friend ready to take it to the post office.

3 p.m. Showered and dressed… aren’t my spotty tights fab?

4 p.m. Post office done, now to head home via the supermarket. I happened to be passing St Stephen’s Church at 4, and its chimes reminded me to take a photo so I decided it deserved to be the subject of said photo.

5 p.m. Time to wash some dishes. I’m ashamed to say that I was washing dishes from Thursday!

6 p.m. Sorting out some of my crafting supplies… a task that desperately needs doing so I can pack up the spare room read for the move.

7 p.m. Cracking some eggs to make omelets for tea.

8 p.m. Carrot and apple salad (it’s a German thing…)

9 p.m. (actually 9:30… I got distracted!). Cross stitching while watching TV.

11 p.m. I forgot to take a photo at 10! Not that it would have made much difference… still cross stitching. Working on the dreaded French knots of dooooom!

And actually forgetting to take a photo at 10 turned out quite well because it means I get to keep my symmetry. I went to bed after the news, which finished at 11:35, so there was no midnight photo.

So, that was my Saturday. Pretty boring! How was yours?

  1. Cute tights! And you are so domestic with all your cooking and cleaning and cross stitch. I used to cross stitch when I was younger, but haven’t picked up a needle in years. I remember it being quite fun and relaxing x

    1. Haha, thanks. I always end up doing loads of housework at the weekend because it just doesn’t get done during the week. I didn’t actually cook anything this time though, just cracked/beat the eggs for my boyfriend to make omelets πŸ˜‰

    1. I haaate French knots! They always pull straight through (leaving my thread with a knot in it!) or just fall apart. I’m getting better at them though, and I have to admit they do give a nice effect when they decide to work!

  2. Yes I love your spotty tights! I didn’t know you were a cross stitcher. I have seen a couple of other bloggers who cross stitch and EVERY TIME I say I will give it a go, but ever get round to it :/

    1. I also hate washing dishes! It’s supposed to be Jan’s job but I always end up doing it otherwise it’s impossible for me to cook dinner (either because the dishes I need to cook with are dirty or there are so many dishes everywhere that I can’t actually get to my stovetop!)

  3. Awesome tights! I was just thinking no one seems to have a long lie on the photo an hour weekends, I’m glad I’m not alone! (Although I was actually up earlier than usual on Saturday, too much to do…) πŸ™‚
