Saturday's Alright

I was super gutted when I realised that I'd missed the #BEDM prompt for Friday as I'd really wanted to do the photo-an-hour one. I've always fancied doing these but usually remember half-way through the day or forget altogether! I have kind of cheated though, as I did this on Saturday and now I'm posting it on Sunday, but hey - you can't stop me! 

Waking up, oh yeah! - Changing the calendar blocks
So, off with an exciting start - I woke up! Whaaat, am I crazy? You betcha bottom dollar I am. As it was Saturday, I allowed Dylan to go downstairs and play for an hour or so and rolled out of bed at around eightish. The next photo, at nine, shows my crummy mantlepiece and my calendar blocks. Also, my lovely blooms. I do love me some lovely blooms. 

Worst tea ever - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 
At around 10am, I had my second cup of tea of the day. That's pretty bad, isn't it? Fear not, caffeine-naysayers, as this one was terrible and was basically warm milk with a slight tan. So disappointing, I normally make a champion brew. By 11, I needed to crack on with some uni work and Dylan was being a bit annoying so I whacked on a dvd. I love CwaCoM and think you should all watch it! 

Picking a dress for Monday - book cover design
I don't really need any encouraging to stop doing my uni work, so when my friend text me about what dress I would wear for our magazine launch night, I promptly took a break and looked through my collection. I've gone for a flowery number, and I still need to decide the little details of shoes, bag and everything else that goes with an outfit. The stress! Back to work, I created a pretend book cover design to put into my 'discarded' designs section of my research folder. Does anyone else like to make work really hard for themselves and neglect their research folders until the weeks before deadlines? Woe.

More uni work - listening to some Eurovision tunes
I felt like the vast majority of my photos for today might be of me doing uni work, so I decided to mix things up with a picture of spotify. I'm so inspiring. At some point, I also popped to the shops but  forgot to take a picture of that.

Distracting myself with polaroids - Dylan with a sock hand
Look at those photos! Aw, I love that one of Joe and his quiff. He'll probably kill me if he sees I've included that one! The next one, of Dylan, is probably one of my favourite pictures ever. SO CUTE. And then, skip ahead to 5pm and here's Dylan with a sock on his hand. WOO! 

Ice cream time! - Writing in my journal, of course!
I've definitely skipped a few hours here, as I decided to celebrate Dylan going to bed with some ice cream - don't say I don't know how to live! At some after 10pm, I wrote in my journal. It's one of those, question-a-day thingies, and I've been working my way through it since the dawn of 2014. Which is how it's intended, of course, but special bonus points for me.

That's basically it, really! I seem to have missed out on including any photos of real food and I also watched four episodes of New Girl. Maybe the next time I try a photo-a-day challenge, I'll remember all the hours!

What did you do this weekend?

  1. Oh I love Cloudy with a chance of meatballs! Have you seen the second one? This weekend I tidied the house (the joy!), went out shopping with the husband, moved in our new sofa and had a BBQ with the family :-) x

  2. That sounds like a great weekend - minus the tidying! Yes, I love the second one too :) they're just so funny x

  3. I always fail at writing these sort of posts! I really want to watch Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.

  4. It's really good, I recommend it :) x

  5. That's exactly what my tea looks like. No shame. I fucking live milky tea!x
