January ~ Photo an Hour.

If you are considering a fresh blogging challenge to take part in every month , why not have a go at Janey’s and Louisa’s  Photo An Hour Challenge. Every month they choose a day ( usually at the weekend) and upload a picture of what they are doing on the hour, every hour on Instagram or Twitter. It’s a great way of finding new blogs or Instagram accounts to follow. And everyone loves a bit of a nosy at someone else’s day!

January’s day was Saturday. So here’s what exciting things I got up to. I just know you are dying to find out………;0)

8am ~  Morning brew. We are planning to head up to the Lake District with Hugo.

9am ~  Hugo on the back seat in the car. He doesn’t like travelling bless him. Luckily he settled down and went to sleep.

10am ~  Whizzing past fields of snow.

11am  ~   Finally in Keswick. And down by the Lake which is full of geese. Can you spot Hugo?

Noon  ~  In Keswick looking for foodie treats for my foodie penpal. Settled on a jar of locally made Orange cheese ( Orange curd).

1pm  ~    A spot of lunch in  The Filling Station  on the outskirts of Keswick.  A Route A66 Burger and sweet potato fries. Yummy. 🙂

2pm  ~  It’s snowing hard in Keswick so the other half  says we have to head away from the snow. Slightly sulking. I had secretly packed my toothbrush and clean underwear, in the hope of getting snowed in. Oh well! Here’s the cd currently listening to in the car.

3pm  ~  We have stopped off at Kirkby Lonsdale ( no snow here yet!)  and having a walk by the river.

4pm  ~   A quick florentine from this amazing bakery in Kirkby Lonsdale. 🙂

5pm  ~   Back home and there is snow!

6pm  ~  My Saturday night was very Rock n Roll. A Hot chocolate and a magazine. I put ground ginger in the chocolate to make it a bit spicey. 🙂

7pm  ~  Tea has been slowly cooking all day. It’s Chicken curry.

8pm   ~ My last picture of the day is of my cat Slinky who has just pinched my place on the sofa. Cheeky!   The evening followed with a Bones Boxset Fest.

Thanks for dropping by. X

 

 

 

 

Hugo’s The Boss.

I have a feeling my blogging may become a little less frequent for a while. A new little dude has come to live with us……..and he’s taking up all our time! Not that we mind, we are completely besotted.:-D

We named him Hugo and he seems to suit it. As he is still a baby we can’t take him out yet.Another almost three weeks to go before his second lot of injections….then he can discover the wonders of the great outdoors.

Of course he looks like butter wouldn’t melt.Don’t be fooled !The moment our backs are turned he’s chewing on a chair leg or running off with my work shoe. He needs constant entertainment. Luckilly for our cat Slinky he also likes his naps…….or we wouldn’t see her at all.

Slinky appears only when H is asleep.

For now Hugo is the boss of us all! 🙂
