Wet weekends are a pain for a dedicated photo blogger.... two precious days off work and no chance to get out and take photos... The only solution is to try an idea pioneered by my lovely and very creative blogfriend, Betsy, over at 'My Five Men' and document my day's activities. I'm sure she won't mind being copied - it's fun to see how other people spend their days.
1 Oops, a late start... a Saturday lie-in is a treat (Note special vibrating alarm clock for deaf person assumes person also blind... has numbers 2 inches high) 2 First cup of tea is the best! 3 Yup, it's rainin' 4 Breakfast: Puffed rice, some of 'Betsy's granola' (she's a star, that girl!) and some juice 5 Shower, wash hair, paint toenails 6 Load the washing machine 7 Get the Marigolds on and clean the bathroom 8 Wrap gift for a friend 9 Change bedding; love the way it looks all clean and love even more sliding into clean sheets at bedtime 10 Still rainin' 11 Lunch: homemade mushroom soup, ciabatta with blue cheese and more tea 12 Off to help celebrate a friend's retirement 13 Sneaked a peek inside the church where friend has been vicar for 25 years 14 Wishing you a long & happy retirement, Gordon & Lis 15 Negotiating the Bradford inner ring road (the lovely old building opposite is the Paper Hall, the oldest house in Bradford, built in 1640) - note sudden but short-lived blue sky 16 More traffic lights 17 Supermarket shop on the way home 18 Sit down with a cup of frothy coffee and a chapter of my book 19 Take out trash and check how the garden looks after all that rain 20 Watch tea-time TV News 21 Catch up on the ironing 22 What's for dinner? Chicken curry 23 Old-fashioned washing-up 24 Time for blogging :)
