07:00 “up and dressed and already perplexing the cat”
James has had the flu this week and has been sleeping in the spare room – he says it’s purely for selfish reasons so he can roll about more, but I took it as a kind gesture as it’s meant I haven’t been woken by his coughing. Plus it gives me the rare opportunity to get dressed in the bedroom without being in the dark! Puss has been sharing her time very fairly between us, but me sitting on the floor to take this photo was just too much for her little brain.
08:00 “BodyPump – little weights for my little arms”
I’m still a big fan of BodyBalance but have also started going to BodyPump once a week. It’s basically weightlifting to music, which sounds a little bizarre especially for someone of my stature, but is amazing. As per the caption I’m still using pretty small weights but it gets a little easier each time and is already having a noticeable effect – a few weeks ago I went to buy some new leggings (including the ones above) and had to size up because there are actual muscles in my thighs 😮
09:00 “welcome home party – I already see a pattern emerging in my #photoanhour #crazycatlady”
There’s always trouble when I have the audacity to leave the house – she walks around meowing loudly and incessantly until James shuts her in a room with him and makes her lie down!
10:00 “shower time, and now for second breakfast”
I love this mirror, which came with the house. I also love second breakfast 😉
11:00 “I’m not sure ‘choose your right dosing’ is how I would have phrased it #engrish”
12:00 “such a lovely sunny day! Coffee mug originally held mulled wine at Stuttgart Christmas market”
13:00 “my fork is reflecting light onto the wall and it’s terribly exciting”
14:00 “about to attempt baking a cake for the first time in approximately 15 years… wish me luck!”
I’d fancied giving baking a try for a little while and was finally given a nudge by Bumpkin Betty’s new baking club – the theme this month is “cooking with vegetables” so I went for this simple carrot cake recipe.
15:00 “well apparently the only phone pic I took this hour was of the grated carrots, so… ta-da!”
Grating three carrots was ridiculously hard work, especially after this morning’s gym class! I’m such a wimp 😉
16:00 “trip hazard”
This brings my total to 25% cat photos for the day – I feel that’s an accurate representation of my day-to-day camera roll 😉
17:00 “I’d say that’s a pretty successful cake 😀 ”
18:00 “steak and chips and pepper sauce. Yum”
I wish I’d wiped that horrible smear off the plate, but apparently my stomach won that battle!
19:00 “…and Black Sails 🙂 ”
Still loving this show, it’s gotten less gratuitous since my review, and in exchange they’ve really upped the ante on the drama, and I love that it’s quite unpredictable.
20:00 “unsure if it looks better or worse with icing but mmm it tastes good”
21:00 “finally painted my nails, have been meaning to all day”
The colour is “Uptown Glamour” by Kate Spade for Nails Inc, and my heart has just broken a little because it seems to have been a limited edition that was released as a free gift with Glamour magazine a few years ago, so I won’t be able to replace it when it’s gone. It’s a really lovely pale gold-ish, brown-ish, silver-ish colour that goes with everything.
22:00 “tickets bought to go see Avenue Q next week. Off to bed soon so that’s my first #photoanhour complete!”
My purse is by MenKai, and I’m not sure where I got it, I think it was maybe a gift.
This particular monthly Photo an Hour project is hosted by Jane and Louisa. Jane will be posting the list of everyone who took part this month, so keep an eye out for that if you want a peek at some more versions of 27th March! I always enjoy reading these posts and had fun taking part too. I took all the photos on my phone for the sake of convenience and also ease of uploading them (I posted them on Twitter throughout the day) and the biggest thing I’ve noticed is the huge difference in quality between the ones taken in natural and artificial light!
How did you spend your Easter weekend?
