Many thanks to Louise at Ramblings of a Roachling, for giving me the heads up on this weekends #photoanhour on Instagram. I love participating in the challenge, even though most of the time I don’t have anything interesting planned. This weekend however I did have something planned but events conspired against me and I was left trying to fill the time up. So here’s what I got up to during my 12 hours of day!
Photo an Hour – 16th June 2018
8am to 9am:
My Saturday began at 8.15am. I awoke to a drizzly morning. The plants in the yarden had a well earned drink while I made breakfast.
9am to 10am:
David and I took a visit to David’s Mum and Dad for Father’s Day. We were also meeting David’s brother, sister-in-law and nephew for a family trip to a nearby farm. We enjoyed hugs from the family’s Newfoundland, Bennie.
10am to 11am:
We were still waiting for David’s brother and sister-in-law, so David took to drawing on a chalk board while his nephew Ewan drew with felt tips.
11am to 12pm:
We were still waiting. I was running out of things to photograph. I liked this cactus display David’s Mum had created.
12pm to 1pm:
With no communication from family, David and I decided to go home for some lunch.
1pm to 2pm:
Finally after 1pm, we got the call that family were ready. So we headed towards the tunnel, to the Wirral.
2pm to 3pm:
Our destination was Claremont Farm, where we all went strawberry picking!
3pm to 4pm:
On our way home, I quickly snapped this shot of the striking Liver Building.
4pm to 5pm:
Time for a quick break before housework. I decided to make a start on the day’s 30 Days Wild blog.
5pm to 6pm:
While I tackled the hated vaccuming, David rustled up an egg fried rice in the kitchen for the evenings meal.
6pm to 7pm:
During mealtime, David snapped this sunlit viper’s-bugloss.
7pm to 8pm:
To end a particularly tiring day we sat down to hand picked strawberries with a mix of shop bought raspberries and ice cream. The strawberries were yummy!
How did you spend your Saturday?
