12 Hours of Day #10

It is with many thanks to Louise at Ramblings of a Roachling, for informing me of the future dates for #photoanhour on Instagram. I knew there was one planned for when we came back from holidaying in Scotland. So on Saturday 22nd September I logged onto Instagram and noticed other Instagramers posting about #photoanhour. I decided to join in. So here’s what I got up to during my 12 hours of day!

Photo an Hour – 22nd September 2018

8am to 9am:

My Saturday began like any other day, with coffee and granola. However my day could so easily have begun at 6.30am when we were rudely woken up by headbutts from Artie wanting us to get up!!

9am to 10am:

This Saturday we went shopping at Asda for our weekly shop. We haven’t been here for a while, as we have been ordering a delivery online most weeks. It was a shock to the system to be honest! We had become used to our food being delivered every week!

10am to 11am:

Since we missed Artie’s 4th birthday, as we were away in Scotland, we decided to buy him a present of a new scratch post. The other one he had had since he was a kitten and was looking sadly worse for wear!

11am to 12pm:

We took a visit to #purplecarrot for organic Discovery Apples. 😁 As soon as I knew they had them in stock, I was round there at the soonest opportunity! You all know by now my penchant for Discovery Apples! 😀

12pm to 1pm:

We popped in for a visit to David’s family and received cuddles from their Newfoundland Bennie. 😁

1pm to 2pm:

On our way home, we stopped off at Lister Drive Fisheries and bought some finch food for our aviary.

2pm to 3pm: 

Lunch was with a cup of tea and sampling the Discovery Apples I had bought from #purplecarrot. I love the cat ornament David’s mum gave us from her recent holiday.

3pm to 4pm:

I had a date with Henry! A quick clean of the house was much needed!

4pm to 5pm:

I took to chopping lots of vegetables, ready to be roasted for the evening’s dinner. 😊 We were making roasted vegetable parcels. Always a hit in our house!

5pm to 6pm:

While the vegetables were roasting, I set the table. I like a nice, romantically lit dining room.

6pm to 7pm:

Dinner of scrumptious roasted vegetable parcels with salad was mmm… tasty!😁

7pm to 8pm:

I spent the remainder of the evening catching up with composing blog posts.

How did you spend your Saturday?

Thanks to Janey and Louisa for setting up the challenge, and thank you for reading,

  1. Sounds like a nice relaxing day. I wouldn’t mind getting my supermarket shop delivered! I work in a supermarket and really loathe doing a big shop. But we are spoiled for supermarkets in Clitheroe to be honest. I don’t think I could get away with it being delivered…as it would come from another town! Not sure I will blog my photo an hour this time as I stopped taking photos at 5. Very poor. 😘X

  2. Your dinner looks yummy and in such a romantic setting. I am wondering how come I missed/forgot you have an aviary. Doh!
    Lovely to see what you do hour by hour. I was at the Repair Café on Saturday morning, then went a walk to the nature reserve in the forest in the afternoon. I picked up some acorns, fancying trying to see if I could grow an oak tree as you wrote about earlier. I found brown ones, and planted three in a flower pot and have left it outside for the elements. I also collected some blown down twigs with oak leaves in the colours of autumn. When they fall off I shall cover the flower pot with them to simulate the forest floor.

    • Hi Cathy, perhaps I need to do another post about the aviary? So glad to read you have decided to grow an oak tree. I hope you get something. Nothing as yet from mine, but could be a while. Fingers crossed. Do let me know how your acorns do x


    • I’ve not had any trouble with the dates. Depends on who packs the order I guess. I have only delivery from Asda to compare but when I get the delivery note via email and paper when the delivery arrives, it states some substitutions (if you accept subs), you can always turn them away at the door and get a refund, and

      • Sorry, clicked post before finishing! The delivery note often says about dates on e.g meat or veg/salad. You can always turn it away if not happy with it. Like I said its all about preference. I’ve not had any issue. You can always try and if you don’t like it, don’t order again. For me it opens up the weekend so I can go out and do other things. That’s how I managed 30 Days Wild, I opened up my weekends to do something other than shopping. Let me know if you try it xx
