This week I am following along with Ali Edwards and The Week in the Life project. This is my first time and although I'm excited to be doing it I'm also a little nervous. So in light of that I'm going to follow along quite closely for these first few days, just until I find my rhythm. All photos will be with my iPhone unless Stuart takes any for me with his Samsung.
Each day I'll be sharing my photos and words from the day before so that next week I can work on the actual album and use these entries as a reference and jumping off point for my stories.
It's a bank holiday here in the UK today and I decided to have a little lie in. Stu was up early to go to a friends and help out with a little plumbing job.
I don't know if it's age or the British way of life rubbing off on me but I'm totally obsessed with checking the weather app every morning, just to check that it's the same as it was before I went to bed! A few rainy days forecast, mmmmm, this is NOT the same as the Sunday forecast.
Perfect day to strip the bed to let it dry in the sunshine, plus it's really time to get the summer linen on the bed.
We have enjoyed such beautiful weather over this bank holiday weekend. I can't actually remember the last time it was so lovely for all three days. Little breeze today though, thankfully! Not ideal for knitting with wool but the shade of the buddleia helped.
I have way too much yarn so this year is all about tackling those projects that have been languishing in a drawer for way too long.
I can't stop looking a the colour of the sky. I'm totally loving that we had three days of cloudless blue skies over our sweet little home.
John and the girls came round for a braai (BBQ). They're lovely girls with opinions and ideas of their own and I still battle to get my head around the fact that they are so grown up. Where have the years gone? They are typical teenagers though, with a little attitude thrown in for good measure!
I love eating outside, especially when it's salad and braai meat!!
So glad we bought ice-creams at the weekend.
I took my toe polish off on Saturday with the idea that I would paint them again but didn't get around to it until tonight. To celebrate the blue skies and bright sunshine I'm going for the brightest colour in my polish box.
I'm desperate for a pedicure but when I went to make an appointment last Thursday, there was nothing available for two weeks! Isn't that insane?
In the comments on Ali's blog people are leaving links to their words and photos for the day, and I'm loving the sharing of ideas and inspiration.
