For those who don’t know, 1 day, 12 pics (#1day12pics) is run by @emmadaviesphoto on Instagram. On the first Saturday of each month, you take a photo every hour until you’ve taken 12 photos. Here are my photos from the first Saturday in February 2019
1 day 12 pics
Well, I failed my first 1 day 12 pics of January 2019! I’ve been trying to pack away Christmas all day and because I was so busy and because I was doing much the same job all day, sometimes I forgot to take a photo and sometimes I didn’t really have anything to photograph!
I managed 10 photos I think and I’ll add them to the post tomorrow because right now, I’m just too tired!
1 Day 12 Pics January 2019 – 1
1 Day 12 Pictures
1 – The first of my 1 day 12 pictures is a certificate Kaycee received for excellent effort in some of her subjects at school. We’re very proud of how hard she’s working at her new school.
2 – I received a £50 book gift card. If you read my blog at all, you’ll know how much I love books. Which means you’ll know how excited I am to go and spend £50 on books! I’m taking it on holiday with me so we can go book shopping!
3 – The girls have spent the morning tidying the bomb site that was their bedroom! This is the rubbish they’ve removed!
They still need to vacuum the carpet, but the vacuum cleaner keeps playing up. I think it’s time to buy a new vacuum cleaner, again. I do not have much luck with them at all!
4 – Ant bought me a wax melt warmer before Christmas last year. I hadn’t found a wax melt that I loved until I ordered this one from Tesco. I’m a bit sad that it’s a limited edition. I’ll have to stock up!
Late Mother’s Day Gift
5 – Kaycee made this for me at school but she had planned to paint it and didn’t get it done in time for Mother’s day. She wasn’t going to give it me because it wasn’t finished but Ella brought it down and gave it me without Kaycee knowing! I told her it was perfect as it was.
6 – I spent last weekend finishing this book. I loved it. I’ll be writing a full review soon.
7 – Time for an afternoon snack!
8 – I’ve bought a new diary because my other one was a bit small. I spent half an hour transferring my old one to my new one and I did some more blog post planning.
9 – We went to visit Nanny for an hour.
10 – My syn allowance on Slimming World is 25 but I’ve not been doing very well so I planned my menu for the week and dropped my syns to 15.
11 – Ella came to relax and watch something on Netflix after her busy day cleaning her room and helping her Nanny with the polishing.
12 – Kaycee came home and joined Ella. They watched Once Upon A Time. They’re on season 3 now and I think they’re both a little bit addicted to it!
1 Day 12 Pics
I’ve had a rubbish week, health-wise and because of that, I’ve missed some of my 366 photo challenge days so I don’t have a weekly photo post to do today. I do, however, have my 1 day 12 pics photos to share with you and I’ll start my ‘photo a day for a year’ challenge again from tomorrow!
For those who don’t know, 1 day, 12 pics is run by @emmadaviesphoto on Instagram. On the first Saturday of each month, you take a photo every hour until you’ve taken 12 photos.
I really enjoy joining in and have set a reminder on my calendar for each month so I don’t forget!
#1 – I like to start my morning off by reading while I’m eating my breakfast and having a coffee
#2 – An hour later and I was still reading!
#3 – I finally put my book down and went out to help Ant in the garden. I was pleased to see some foxgloves that I’d forgotten we’d planted last year, had started to flower 🙂
#4 – I wasn’t so pleased to see that the peach tree we planted when moved in has got a disease called leaf curl. I don’t know if we’re going to be able to save it 🙁
#5 – We watched one of our favourite programs while eating lunch – Gogglebox is ace!
#6 – Back out in the garden and I found an egg in the grass after Ant had mowed, from the Easter egg hunt earlier in the year!
Half way there!
#7 – Coffee break after some hard work in the garden!
#8 – The girls will be pleased to see the Bostik Bloggers monthly craft box has arrived when they get home tomorrow!
#9 – Another mug of coffee, relaxing at Nanny’s while Ant mowed her lawn 🙂
#10 – Jealous of the mother in law’s lupins….mine never grow because something eats them before they get a chance!
#11 – Having a treat!
#12 – We’ve started work on the garden today, properly! We’ve been making half-hearted attempts but today we actually got cracking and got quite a lot done.
I’ve been browsing Pinterest for some inspiration!
I love taking part in emmadaviesphoto 1 day, 12 pics photo project on the first Saturday of every month.
I tried to compose some shots this month instead of just documenting what I was doing on the hour, every hour! I’m quite happy with a couple of the shots 🙂
– The ingredients for beef and mushroom stroganoff going in the slow cooker
– Morning reading while the girls watch shows such as Sam and Cat, The Thundermans and others that I’m sick of seeing over and over again!
– Ant’s baking bread
– Ant took the kids to the dentist for a fluoride treatment and left me home because I had a bad back and was starting with a headache. It was a nice, peaceful hour.
– I made ham and mushroom pizza toasted sandwiches for lunch
– My syn free Slimming World snack
– Kaycee loves baking
– Ant’s lovely bread
– We visited Nanny and Chi Chi
– We had to nip to Asda before dinner
– Kaycee’s chocolate cakes
I started with beef stroganoff and I’m ending with beef stroganoff, mashed potatoes, cabbage and Brussels
I had trouble posting them on time yesterday though because I forgot I’d switched wifi off on my phone when it was really slow in Asda and used my 4G instead. I left it off for days and used all my data! It doesn’t reset until the end of the month so I have no mobile data for now.
It runs on the first Saturday of the month if you’d like to join in 🙂
