April ~ Photo an Hour.

On Sunday I took part in Photo an Hour on Instagram. Its a challenge Janey and Louisa organize every month and its a great chance to nosy at the everyday lives of others. I usually end up posting my pics on here too. Sunday happened to be a fresh but sunny spring day….and I spent quite a lot of it doing a stall at a craft fair with my friend Jo Jangles. πŸ™‚


8am ~ Time for coffee and toast. Ignore the time on the coffee machine. It felt early…but it wasn’t that early!


9am ~ Here’s what I was wearing to the craft fair. I love my ‘Fun’ brooch which I bought from a very talented photographer who transforms her piccies into jewellery. The Fun is from a Fun Fair sign in Morecambe.


10am ~ All set up for the Craft Fair. Be prepared for more craft fair piccies.


11am ~ Here’s the view from our stall. Ballooon creatures!


12 Noon ~ A gorgeous vintage tea pot of Jo’s. I love the colour and the shape. I heart the mouse too. πŸ™‚


1pm ~ I’m hanging out at my friends Chilli stall where I bought a chipotle chilli mix and there’s a pressie for Hugo too from the pet accessories stall. πŸ™‚


2pm ~ Cake!!!!!!!


3pm ~ Already packed up and home. We were pleased with our sales and booked again for July. Plenty more time for making. Heres Hugo playing with his new toy.


4pm ~ Wil and I are out for a walk with Hugo. I love the fact that Spring is here and when the sun is shining, our English countryside is the best!


5pm ~ On the way home we spy a friend at his allotment and he gave us some rhubarb. I honestly did think about making a crumble……I will make it this week. πŸ˜‰


6pm ~ Hugo is pooped from his walk.


7pm ~ Watching a dvd ( for the next two hours ) so no pic for 8pm. Tracks is the true story of a woman who crossed Australia on foot with four camels and a dog called Diggoty in the seventies. Great film but there was a bit of blubbing going on….by me. 😦 SPOILER ALerT ~ Never watch movies where the hero/heroine travels with a cute doggy, if you’re prone to cry babydom like me.


9pm ~ Watching Poldark. I love this new series but this episode was particularly depressing. I am also now worrying about Demelza’s cute dog…..


10pm ~ My last pic is my other fur baby Slinky who as you can see is looking very chilled here.

So there you have it! How was your Sunday??

  1. What a great idea, it is lovely to peek inside your Sunday! (I am just nosy!) What a lovely day, that tea pot looks adorable!
    I agree with you about Poldark, it hasn’t really been that exciting has it? I have yet to catch up on the last episode, but I am not expecting much.
    When I was little they would show these nature programmes on a Saturday morning – it put me off nature programmes for the rest of my life as you would see a lovely little baby animal born only to be eaten a few moments later, it still makes me cry!

    1. Oh I know, I’m rubbish at watching nature programmes too. I basically can’t bear to watch anything with a sad ending. I am enjoying poldark. I just thought Ross was too harsh with Demelza in the last episode.He was a bit of a git ! And of course I’m now worrying about her dog.you should do the next Photo an hour…..x

      1. Oh no, I haven’t seen the last episode yet, but I think Ross is a bit harsh with her too. I imagine he married Demelza because she was so biddable!
        Photo hour sounds interesting.. challenge accepted! πŸ™‚

      2. Apparently It will be on sat 23rd May. You can join in on Instagram, Twitter or your blog or all three if u wish. If your on twitter or instagram the hashtag is #photoanhour and Louisa from the blog Duck in a dress chose the date.

  2. The craft fair sounds like a dangerous place for me, I would want to buy everything !! I love the concept of “photo an hour” even if I’ve never tried it myself.

    I spent my sunday at a birthday party, playing board games and chatting to friends. Eating cakes, drinking juices.. was lovely. Time is always flying during weekend 😦

  3. The weekends always go to quickly don’t they, but it sounds like you had a good one. πŸ™‚ Whenever I do a craft fair i end up spending more than i make! x

  4. Thanks for the comment, Shazza. I like the Rhubarb and Rosehip too – it makes a great pink gin fizz πŸ˜‰ The craft fair looked great – love the orange and blue scarf in the photo and, ohhh, that cake! The FUN brooch made me smile, especially with the link to Morecambe! x

  5. Oh no I didn’t manage to stay awake through Poldak and need to catch up but I love that dog…..I don’t normally fall asleep at nine o clock but my excuse was the half marathon. x

      1. I think it might the tourist Industry is talking about it quite a lot, and saying it will attract more visitors. I think the lovely weather we have been having will also make it busier this summer. We are quite near to some of the places it was filmed and I used to go to Poldark mine all the time when I was little as it was within walking distance and also had a snake slide and a ball pool! x
