I've seen Ali Edward's Day in the Life before but never remembered to join in on the day. Last month I saw her mention it again and decided to play along. I must warn you though that this post is very photo heavy.
A school week day for me starts at 6am when my alarm goes off. I do tend to lie in for another 5 minutes or so before getting up and heading for the shower. I wash my hair and do my make up when I get out, before heading downstairs. On the way I'll pick up the washing and sometimes collect dry washing ready for ironing.
The washing gets put in the machine first, then I feed the cats (we have 4)
I switch on Daybreak (morning TV) so we can see the weather and I can catch the news.
then dry my hair.
Hair dried and it's on to making her lunch while she sorts out her breakfast.
When I have my breakfast depends on how organised I am, but it's normally with Emily
Emily getting her music ready for the walk to school
And getting me back for taking photos of her
A phone call to Claire to catch up on her and the girls
While Hugh comes in to make his breakfast.
Walking up London Road (I do like our town and the old buildings)
and along the High Street
to Caffe Nero
All the town photos were taken using my iPhone including this one of a couple of Sarah and Carol.
After coffee I popped in to town to return a jumper, go to the bank for Mum and get a few bits from Boots (the chemist).
Popped in to Mum and Dad's on the way home
Helped Mum with her shopping order (which reminded me I needed to do mine!)
Catching up on a few blogs
My Sainsburys online grocery order
A bit of editing - ready for Project Life - before making dinner
Chicken wrapped in bacon, new potatoes, roast tomatoes and steamed veg (with a bit of ranch dressing on top)
A hot chocolate (because I'm trying to cut down on eating chocolate)
I quite enjoyed doing this and may (if I remember) try and do it at the end of each month.
