1 Day 12 Pics January 2020

I’m going to try to remember to join in with 1 day 12 pics each month. I’ve not had much success in previous years but I’ve actually created draft posts for each month this time so hopefully, I’ll manage all year!

1 Day 12 Pics January 2019

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 pics January 2019 - first coffee of the day
First coffee of the morning and I’m trying not to think about the huge task I have ahead of me. It usually takes a couple of days to pack Christmas away and I can’t be bothered to start!

Watching Who wants to be a millionaire

candles burning
These candles I had for Christmas smell wonderful


Christmas decorations made by the children
I found a tin of Christmas decorations that the children have made over the years. I’m keeping them safe because they’re all too old to be making things like this in school and college anymore!


the Christmas tree is still up
I didn’t get around to the tree. I did manage to pack all the kitchen Christmas things away, though 🙂


starting a new cross stitch kit
Going to do the rest tomorrow and tonight, to help me relax, I’m starting a new cross stitch kit. This is a stamped kit and it’s the first time I’ve tried a stamped one. It takes a little getting used to but I think I’m going to enjoy doing it.

1 Day 12 Pictures – Project As And When

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.

1 day 12 pictures


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!

1 day 12 pictures

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!

1 day 12 pictures

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!

1 day 12 pictures

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.

1 day 12 pictures

6 – I spent last weekend finishing this book. I loved it. I’ll be writing a full review soon.

1 day 12 pictures

7 – Time for an afternoon snack!

1 day 12 pictures

June – 1 Day 12 Pics

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!

Pinterest garden design ideas

#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.

#1day12pics – Instagram

When I get the chance, I like to join in with Emma Davies‘  1 day 12 pics on Instagram.

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 🙂
